Guide to Buying a Stairlift

Stairlift Quality

At Acorn Stairlifts, we are dedicated stairlift specialists. We don't just sell stairlifts, we manufacture them in our three UK factories, so we can guarantee the products we sell and install are of the very highest quality. Find out more about our stairlift quality below:

Independently tested stairlifts

All of Acorn's current stairlifts have been independently tested and certified to comply with the newest standards for stairlifts:

  • BS EN 81-40:2008 - European Safety Standards
  • ISO 9386-2:2000 - Worldwide Standard for Stairlifts

This includes life testing our stairlifts to a minimum of 25,000 return journeys - the equivalent of 11 years of use, assuming six return journeys every day.

Quality assurance

To ensure the highest stairlift quality, nothing leaves our factories until it has been thoroughly checked and tested. For example, each Acorn Stairlift carriage is checked 29 times by a 20-strong stairlift quality assurance team. On top of that, our installation engineers work through a rigorous 37-point checklist as part of the fitting process.

Made in Britain

Somewhere in the world, an Acorn Stairlift is installed every eight minutes, and every single one is made in Britain and shipped from our UK factories. We export to more than 80 countries worldwide, including the USA where Acorn is now the clear market leader.

Simply the best stair lifts!

Put simply, we take real pride in manufacturing and supplying what we firmly believe to be the world's best quality stairlifts.
