Stairlift Quality

Independently tested

All of Acorn's current stairlifts have been independently tested and certified to comply with the newest standards for stairlifts:

  • BS EN 81-40:2008 - European Safety Standards
  • ISO 9386-2:2000 - Worldwide Standard for Stairlifts

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.

Quality assurance

Nothing leaves our factories until it has been thoroughly checked and tested. For example, each Acorn Stairlift carriage is checked 29 times by a 20-strong quality assurance team. On top of that, our installation engineers work through a rigorous 37-point checklist as part of the fitting process.

Simply the best

Put simply, we take real pride in manufacturing and supplying what we firmly believe to be the world's best stairlifts.
