Curved Stairlifts

The Acorn 180 Curved Stairlift

Welcome to one of the most innovative stairlifts in the world.

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.
