Electronic and mechanical braking systems:
The stairlift is fitted as standard with these essential safety systems to eliminate any possibility of an uncontrolled descent of the stairlift.
At the end of either an ascent or descent, the stairlift will come to a ‘soft stop’ due to the limit sensors. These ensure that the stairlift always stops in the correct position.
Choice of Control:
Acorn Superglide Stairlifts can be controlled by either the simple mechanical ‘paddle’ at the end of each seat arm, or by way of the infra-red remote control handset, two of which are supplied. The paddle overrides the remote controls, which are ideal when there are 2 users in the house and the lift needs to be ‘sent’ or ‘called’ up and down the stairs. The wireless design means that there is no unsightly wall-mounted wiring or control stations.
For extra security and safety, Acorn Stairlifts can be fitted with an inertia reel lap harness or a static, 3-point, fixed over-shoulder harness.
Swivel seat with locking catch:
The stairlift seat swivels and locks in position, making mounting and dismounting the stairlift easy and safe. The stairlift will not operate unless the seat is in the correct riding position.
Pressure sensitive safety surfaces:
There are 5 surfaces / edges that stop the stairlift in event of a collision with any obstruction on the stairway. These are located around the footrest, and on the top and bottom of the carriage.
Diagnostic Digital Display
Mounted on the carriage of the stairlift is a digital display which 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.
The fold-away construction makes the Stair lift unobtrusive and allows full access of the stairs.
