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.


It is nice to go upstairs without struggling.
