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.


I liked the look of Acorn immediately. From an engineers perspective I could see the stairlift was very well constructed.

"We discussed moving house but the thought of leaving our family home after a lifetime here was too upsetting. As we’d heard of Acorn Stairlifts, we contacted them and from there it was a quick decision to install a stairlift"

My husband and I feel so much safer getting up the stairs and our children, who are all grown up, are a lot happier knowing we’re comfortable and secure moving around in our own home.

I trusted Acorn from the beginning and what's more, they could fit a stairlift straight away which was perfect for our situation.

I would restrict myself to going upstairs just once a day as it was too painful to make the climb more often. One afternoon I was so exhausted and desperately fed up of not being able to live comfortably in my own house.

For 13 years the impact of the condition gradually got worse and I grew to dread climbing the stairs in my own home because it was just too painful, too draining and after a number of falls too frightening.
