Stairlifts

Stairlifts (sometimes called a stairchair) are the perfect solution to mobility issues with your stairs, making your whole home accessible again. Stairlifts can take you up and down your stairs effortlessly, in safety and comfort. You can smoothly glide from one floor to another, and you will realize how wonderful it is to enjoy your whole home again. Not simply for the handicapped, stairlifts are a great solution for anyone who finds a bit of difficulty going up and down their stairs.

Southeast Elevator is also a distributor for other stairlift manufacturers, if the featured product line does not meet your needs.

Works during Power failure

  • No mains voltage on the stairlift
  • No trailing cables
  • Quick, simple installation – no mess or disruption
  • Smooth and near silent operation
  • ‘Soft start / soft stop’

Acorn stairlifts are powered by direct current (DC) supplied by rechargeable batteries. These deliver a smooth, ultra-quiet and safe ride quality. The batteries are maintenance-free and charged by a safe 15 volt AC, which is stepped-down from the domestic mains supply with a transformer. Using this method of power for your stairlift has many advantages. If there is ever a power failure in your home your stairlift continues to function, so you will never get stranded. There is no mains voltage power to your stairlift. As the power supply is onboard the stairlift itself there is no troublesome trailing cable as you get with AC powered lifts. DC battery power gives an extremely smooth and near silent operation. It also allows us to build in a ’soft start / soft stop’, this means that there is no jolting or lurching as your stairlift starts or finishes its journey. This adds to the feeling of safety and stability.

Acorn Superglide Stairlifts Ride Quality

  • Smoothest, quietest and most luxurious ride quality
  • Unique rail profile and chassis roller system
  • DC power
  • Rack and pinion drive systems
  • Superb feeling of safety and stability

The peerless ride quality is attributed to our unique rail profile and chassis roller system working in conjunction with the DC power and rack and pinion drive systems. Typically, other stairlifts feature four, or sometimes six, chassis rollers and a box section rail. The Acorn Superglide stairlift has eight rollers, giving a surface contact area at least four times greater than competitor products. Such features, along with our unique double-tube rail profile, gives the smoothest, quietest and most luxurious ride quality currently available, and a superb feeling of safety and stability when using the stairlift.

Easy to use

  • Whisper-quiet operation
  • Simple paddle and infra-red remote control operation
  • ‘Soft start / soft stop’ technology
  • Swivel seat
  • Diagnostic digital display
  • Folding Seat

All of the easy to use features are built into each stairlift Acorn manufacture. Having a fold away footrest means the stairs remain available for use by others when the stairlift is not in use. Due to the stairlifts DC power supply noise levels are at whisper quiet levels. The lift can be ’sent’ or ‘called’ to wherever it is needed by using the infra-red remote control. There is no jolting or lurching as the lift starts or finishes its journey. Swivel seat with locking catch – ensures easy mounting and dismounting from the stairlift. The lift will not operate unless the seat is in the correct riding position. The diagnostic digital display mounted on the stairlift carriage shows clearly when the lift is in the normal operating position and also provides invaluable diagnostic information in the unlikely event of a fault with your stairlift.

Acorn 80 Stairlifts – comfort & safety

The Acorn 80 stairlift for curved stairways comes with all the Comfort and safety features that you can find on our Acorn Superglide stairlift. The unique self-leveling transport system moves the stairlift carriage along the low profile rail and automatically adjusts the speed and level of the seat when moving round corners, providing an exceptionally comfortable ride. The stairlifts electronic programming ensures optimum performance at all times. With a built-in soft start and stop facility, the Acorn 80 stairlift gives you a smooth and comfortable ride every time. You can be sure that your stairlift is always ready for use, even in the event of a main power failure, thanks to the integral rechargeable battery pack. When not in use, the Acorn 80 can be folded away; its slim profile and unique inside parking ability ensures that the staircase is not obstructed, allowing other members of the household to use the stairs as normal.

Acorn 80 Stairlifts – a practical solution

The Acorn 80 can be fitted on practically any curved stairway, and its slim, attractive rail attaches directly to your stairs (not the wall), so there’s no damage to your home. The stairlift is constructed from a modular rail, allowing the rail portion of the lift to be quickly assembled from standard sections, enabling faster delivery and an installation time to suit you. If there is a doorway near the foot of the stairs the optional automatic powered hinged rail is ideal. The lower section of the rail folds up and out of the way automatically as the stairlift travels up and down the staircase, allowing greater access at the foot of the stairs. This raises and lowers automatically as the stairlift travels up and down the staircase. When the stairlift is not is use, the rail is neatly out of the way and causes no obstruction.

There are no expensive and disruptive alterations to the main power supply due to the dc batteries that power the stairlift when in motion.

A Stair Lift designed to resist the elements

All metallic components are either made in aluminium, or are oil annealed or zinc plated before powder coating. Plastic components are heat and UV resistant, protecting the stair lift from color fading and ambient heat damage. Included with the stair lift is a durable plastic cover which will keep off accumulations of leaves and snow.

The Acorn Superglide Outdoor Stair Lift is an ideal solution for situations involving any staircase that is exposed to the elements, including garden steps, sun decks, porches, front stoops and garage or basement steps. The outdoor stair lift is very popular with those lucky enough to live in beach homes, as it is well protected from the ravages of salt air.

Even in outdoor configuration, the Acorn Superglide Stair Lift has world renowned ride quality and performance, making it whisper quiet, smooth and stable and very easy to use.
