Acorn Stair Lifts

Acorn Stairlifts Inc. began operations in the UK but have since gone international and have their US headquarters in Orlando, Florida. Acorn Stair lifts are recognised as a market leader when it comes to stairlift technology and boast that their stairlifts are state of the art, yet simple to use. They are the leading designers of perch stair lifts which cater for people who find it difficult to get into a seated position.

Acorn stairlifts claim to be able to fit any staircase no matter what configuration.  Features include:

  • Promise a smooth and gentle ride every time.

Acorn Sit or Stand Stair Lift
