The outdoor stair lift has all of the safety and comfort features included with our indoor stair lift, but is designed and manufactured specifically for outdoor use.
All metallic components are either made in aluminum, or are oil annealed or zinc plated before powder coating. Plastic components are heat and UV resistant, protecting the stair lift from color fading and ambient heat damage.
The Acorn Superglide Outdoor Stair Lift is an ideal solution for situations involving any staircase that is exposed to the elements, including garden steps, sun decks, porches, front stoops and garage or basement steps. The outdoor stair lift is very popular with those lucky enough to live in beach homes, as it is well protected from the ravages of salt air.
Even in outdoor configuration, the Acorn Superglide Stair Lift has world renowned ride quality and performance, making it whisper quiet, smooth and stable and very easy to use.
Included with the stair lift is a durable plastic cover which will keep off accumulations of leaves and snow.
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.
Limit sensors: 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' switch at the end of both seat arms, or by way of the infra-red remote control handset, two of which are supplied. These 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 for control stations. The paddle switches override the remote controls.
Seat Belts: For extra security and safety, the Acorn stairlift comes with an inertial reel lap harness as standard, for no extra cost. Always putting safety first.
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.
Slim-line design:The fold-away construction makes the Stair lift unobtrusive and allows full access of the stairs
