Optional Extras

Acorn 180 Curved Hinge Demonstration

Automatic Powered Hinge

If there is a doorway near the foot of the stairs the optional automatic powered hinged rail is ideal.

The lower section of the rail folds up and out of the way automatically as the stairlift travels up and down the staircase, allowing greater access at the foot of the stairs. The powered hinge raises and lowers automatically as the stairlift travels up and down the staircase.

When the stairlift is not is use, the rail is neatly out of the way and causes no obstruction.
