Welcome back, once again, to Acorn Stairlifts Fact of the Week, a segment in which Acorn shares one out of the many cool facts about our world-class stairlift company.
This week, we will be sharing a fact that explains one of the many reasons why Acorn Stairlifts considers itself an expert in all things stairlifts, including our mastery of stairlift manufacturing.
Our Acorn Stairlifts Fact of the Week
Acorn doesn’t just install and service our stairlifts—We manufacture all our stairlifts in our very own factories.
Do you want to know why we are so confident in the unmatchable quality of our stairlifts across the entire mobility market?
It’s because we manufacture them ourselves—in house.
When it comes to stairlifts, Acorn knows that we are the best in the business, so we wouldn’t allow the complicated and meticulous process of manufacturing such high-quality machinery to fall into the hands of anyone other than us—the experts of all things stairlifts and masters of manufacturing.
What Makes Our Stairlift Manufacturing Process Stand Out from the Chairlift Crowd?
At Acorn Stairlifts, we strive to climb alongside our customers every step of the way in their journeys to reaching new heights.
This is why we do it all—service, installation, and manufacturing.
Acorn has remained one of the world’s leading stairlift manufacturers for decades, and we are proud to be one of the few stairlift companies that manufactures our own stairlifts in house.
All models are manufactured in our own factories by stairlift experts, going through extensive, independent testing procedures.
Furthermore, all models of Acorn stairlifts must undergo a thorough, multi-step quality-assurance evaluation in our factories before being shipped out all over the world.
What Is Done During This Quality-Assurance Evaluation?
During this stairlift quality-assurance evaluation, each Acorn stairlift carriage is checked 29 times by our 20-person quality-assurance team to ensure that you are getting the quality you deserve.
However, Acorn’s quality assurance doesn’t stop there.
In fact, during the stairlift installation process, all installers are required to work through a strict 37-point checklist as part of the assembly process.
These procedures have been put in place to ensure that our stairlifts function flawlessly and safely for our valued customers.
What Else Does Acorn Do to Ensure Our Stairlifts Are Soaring Up to Standard and Beyond?
All Acorn stairlifts are regularly tested and certified by independent bodies. This of course includes the established standards for stairlifts:
BS EN 81-40: 2008- European safety standards
ISO 9386-2: 2000- Worldwide standard for stairlifts
In addition, Acorn Stairlifts regularly puts all Acorn models through even more stairlift quality testing.
Each Acorn model must complete at least 25,000 trips (this corresponds to approximately 11 years of use with six trips a day) before it is released for consumer use.
Why Acorn Cares About Quality
We’ve established that all models are manufactured in our own factories by stairlift experts, going through extensive, independent testing procedures—But why do we put in so much work to go above and beyond the minimum, required stairlift regulations?
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.
