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 wish we had got it sooner because it means we can stay in our home we have been in for 30 years, professional service from start to finish.

To all staff, Thank you. Two little words that mean so much. I am in heaven using the stairlift. All your staff came the time agreed, they worked quickly, all friendly - but not pushy. Just perfection all round.

I no longer have to worry about getting chest pains or breathlessness while climbing the stairs. The over all service from the sales advisers to the installation engineers was 10 out of 10

Before we had the lift my mother had to be slowly escorted up the stairs but the stairlift has given her independence and allows her to go up the stairs a lot faster. The whole service was dealt with prompt and quickly.
