Acorn Stairlifts

At Acorn Stairlifts, our mission is to be the world’s best stairlift provider. Our British-built stairlifts fit to the stairs, not the wall, so there is no messy and disruptive structural work, or drilling into masonry and plaster.

All of Acorn’s stairlifts have been independently tested and certified to comply with the newest European safety standard for stairlifts. Our industry-leading innovations have helped win a string of awards, including the prestigious Ease-of-Use commendation from the Arthritis Foundation.


Straight Stairlift

A straight stairlift is the ultimate staircase solution, giving you the full use of the home you love. Blending seamlessly into your home, with a smooth start and stop mechanism, you can glide effortlessly up and down the stairs.

Continually developed, improved and refined over many years, the Acorn 130 is the direct descendant of our very first straight stairlift, the Acorn Superglide


Curved Stairlift

Designed from the ground-up for any curved staircase, this curved stairlift offers a comfortable and reliable ride. The advanced self-levelling carriage moves along the modular rail system, coming to a soft stop with ease.

With its low running costs, it even operates through a power cut. The sleek, smooth and modern rail system is unique to this stairlift. There is no waiting weeks to have an expensive rail made for your home. Utilising the FastTrack® system, it can be installed in a matter of days with no mess and no fuss.


Outdoor Stairlift

Do you have a steep drive that is difficult to walk up? Acorn Stairlifts do not need to be limited to your indoor stairs; our outdoor stairlifts are the perfect mobility aid to give you access to those outdoor spaces you love or have limited access to.

Our 130 outdoor stairlift comes with all the features that can be found on our straight stairlift. For extra protection, it comes with a weather resistant outdoor cover.
