Stairlifts Straight from the Source

Unlike other companies that install stairlifts manufactured by outside businesses, Acorn Stairlifts manufactures our stairlifts in-house. Our products are manufactured in our own factories and go through extensive, independent testing procedures that comply with the following newest standards for stairlifts:

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

This includes testing our stairlifts to a minimum of 25,000 return journeys - the equivalent of 11 years of use, assuming six return journeys every day. Beyond this, within our factories, each Acorn stairlift is checked 29 times by our quality assurance team made up of 20 members.

Acorn does this because we want to be able to look our customers in the eye and tell them that they are getting the safest and highest-quality stairlift with full confidence. When you choose Acorn, you will never have to worry about the quality, where your stairlift came from, or who manufactured it.
