Optional Extras

Acorn 180 curved automatic hinge demonstration

Automatic powered hinge

Can be fitted when there is a opening or doorway at the foot of the stairs automatic powered hinged rail solves this problem.

The curved rail has a section at the bottom that goes up and out of the way automatically as the stairlift travels up and down the staircase, allowing easy access at the foot of the stairs. The powered hinge raises and lowers automatically as the stairlift travels up and down the staircase.

When you park the stairlift this part of the rail is neatly out of the way with no obstruction.


The stairlift has helped to ease the difficulty of climbing the stairs due to health problems and means I can stay in my home without needing major works done to it.

Mr C H Welch , Somerset

Just thought you would like to know, the stairlift that you installed over 20 years ago is really great and gets me up and down the stairs really well. I would not be without it. I would have to go up on my "rear end' or have to move to a property without stairs. It has NEVER let me down in all these years.
