Optional Extras

Acorn 130 manual hinge demonstration

Manual hinge

If there is a doorway or hallway at the foot of the stairs, the optional manual hinged rail is ideal.

The lower section of the rail can be folded up and out of the way manually using call stations placed at the top and bottom of the staircase, allowing greater access at the foot of the stairs.

When the stairlift is not is use, the rail is neatly out of the way and causes no obstruction.


Acorn meets all its claims and my expectations. It’s removed the risk of further falls downstairs.
