Acorn Stairlift fitted with  Infa-Red Remote Control Vermont  Burlington  VT  Montpelier  VT Limit sensors

At the end of either an ascent or descent, the stairlift will come to a 'soft stop' due to the limit sensors. These ensure that the stairlift always stops in the correct position.

Acorn Stairlift fitted with  Infa-Red Remote Control Vermont  Burlington  VT  Montpelier  VT Choice of Control

An Acorn stairlift can be controlled via 2 methods, a simple 'paddle switch' and the infra-red remote control. The 'paddle switch' control is located at the end of both arm rests of the stairlift and can be operated by hand. You will receive two infra-red remotes with every stairlift which enables you to call the stairlift to either end of the stairs. The infra-red remote is wireless so there are no messy cables trailing around your home, or unsightly wall mounted control stations. If both remotes are used at the same time, the paddle switches will override the remote controls, that means that the person on the stairlift will be in control of the stairlift.

All Acorn stairlifts come with an inertial reel lap harness, this is like a seat belt in a car, and will keep you securely on the seat of the stairlift at all times. Safety is a priority when going up the stairs.

Acorn Stairlift fitted with Locking Seat Swivel Vermont  Burlington  VT  Montpelier  VT Swivel seat with locking catch

To allow easier mounting and dismounting of a stairlift, an Acorn stairlift comes with a swivel seat. The swivel seat locks in position via a catch located on the seat which enables you can use the stairlift with ease. The stairlift will not operate unless the seat is in the correct riding position, this means that you can be confident that your journey on the stairs will be safe and secure..

Acorn Stairlift fitted with Safety Stop Sensors Vermont  Burlington  VT  Montpelier  VT Pressure sensitive safety surfaces

If there is an obstruction on the stairs, our stairlifts will detect it with at least one of the five pressure sensitive surfaces situated around the stairlift. If an obstruction is detected, the Acorn stairlift will cease movement so you can move the obstruction. The pressure sensitive surfaces are located around the footrest and the top and bottom of the stairlift carriage.

Acorn Stairlift fitted with  Diagnostic Digital Display Diagnostic digital display

Mounted on the carriage of the stairlift is a digital display which shows clearly when the lift is in the normal operating position. Also it provides invaluable diagnostic information in the unlikely event of a fault with your stairlift.

Acorn Stairlift fitted with Safety Sensors Slim-line design

The fold-away construction makes the stairlift unobtrusive and allows full access of the stairs.

Acorn Stairlift fitted with a Sit / Stand Frame Vermont  Burlington  VT  Montpelier  VT Sit and Stand Frame

With a sit/stand frame, you can choose whether to use the stairs in either the usual seated position or to stand on the footrest. With a special folding steady/security bar for stability, it is ideal for anybody who may have problems bending their knees, or where multiple users with different requirements will be using the stairlift.

The Superglide Perch Stairlift may also be suitable.


 Hinged Rail

The lower section of the rail folds up and out of the way when not in use, allowing greater access at the foot of the stairs. The option of a hinged rail is ideal when there may a doorway near the foot of the stairs. When the stairlift is not is use, the rail is neatly out of the way and causes no obstruction.
