How Acorn Manufactures Quality Stairlifts Straight from the Source

12:00am | & FAQ

Acorn Stairlifts not only provides superior stairlift servicing; attentive aftercare programs; and 24/7, 365 days a year customer service; but Acorn is also one of the few stairlift companies that also manufactures our own stairlifts in house. Unlike other companies that install stairlifts manufactured by outside businesses, Acorn takes pride in providing customers with stairlifts straight from the source.

We do 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.

Read on to learn why Acorn Stairlifts is the world’s leading stairlift manufacturer, exporting our products to more than 80 countries worldwide and providing you with safe and dependable stairlifts every time that support you through all of life’s ups and downs.

Acorn Factory Regulations and Testing Procedures

stairlift workers assembling stairliftAll Acorn stairlifts are manufactured in our own factories by our expert engineers 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

None of Acorn’s products leave the factory until they have been thoroughly checked and tested. For example, each and every Acorn stairlift is checked 29 times by our 20-strong quality assurance team. 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.

Furthermore, every employee that handles your stairlift, whether during installation or repairs, is an Acorn stairlift expert that is trained to prolong your lift’s life and maintain its high quality. This means that when your stairlift is being installed, an Acorn installation engineer is required to work through a rigorous 37-point checklist as part of the fitting process.

Why is it so Important to get your Stairlift Straight from the Source?

Not knowing who manufactured your product or where it came from leaves the customer questioning its quality. Low-quality products, especially when it comes to mobility aids such as stairlifts, can cause serious injury or death. If you are lucky and escape these dangerous scenarios, a cheaply made product is not durable and will end up being an extreme waste of money regardless.

Even if the product by chance is high quality, not knowing how to properly care for it can take years off of its lifespan. Additionally, no matter how well a product is made, it will undoubtedly experience the wear and tear that comes with everyday use. For this reason, it is essential that the person that handles your high-quality stairlift equipment is not only an expert in their field, but knows that specific product from the inside out. If your equipment falls into the hands of someone inexperienced or who isn’t completely familiar with the product, the quality of your stairlift could be irreversibly damaged.

In other words: Who better to service and explain to you how an Acorn stairlift works than an employee of the company that created it? From start to finish, Acorn assures that our customers are taken care of. From the strict standards we adhere to during manufacturing, to our superior stairlift servicing within your home, Acorn Stairlifts is hands-on throughout the entire process to ensure our customers are getting what they deserve—only the best.
