How to Pick the Right Chair Lift for Your Home

Acorn Stairlifts is one of the fastest growing stair chair lift brands in the USA and nationwide in the past 20 years. Their stair chair lift models feature good visual design, safety, and simplicity of use. In this article we will review three Acorn models that you can choose from. Hopefully by the time you are done reading, you will have a good idea which Acorn stair chair lift will be the most useful choice for you. The three choices explained are Acorn Superglide 120, Acorn Superglide 80, and Acorn Superglide 120 Outdoors.

Acorn Superglide 120 – Straight Stair Lift

Superglide 120 is Acorn's straight stair lift. Battery drive gives it safety of knowing that, even if the lights go out in your home, the stair chair lift will still be operational. You will feel safe in Acorn Superglide 120 because of the numerous obstacle sensors built into the foot rest, and the car, preventing you from driving over objects. The built-in over-speed governor will make sure that the Acorn stair chair lift is never going to be a runaway. Similarly, end-rail switches ensure that the device stops at the right place. The audio-visual codes displayed will also give you early warnings for things you need to do to keep your stair lift safe.

Acorn Superglide 80 – Curved Stair Lift

Superglide 80 is the Acorn that can be fitted on curved stairs, even on the spiral staircases. It has all state-of-the art safety features of the Superglide 120. In addition, the modular curved rail design that is being implemented recently, makes the Acorn 80 much less expensive than it would have been just a few years ago. Back then all the designs were custom molded which contributed to the high costs of curved stair chair lifts. No any more.

Acorn Superglide 120 – Outdoor Stair Lift

This is simply a weatherized version of Superglide 120. A weatherproof rail is added, and the seat and the carriage are made of water proof materials. As long as you maintain the rail, the chair, and the carriage properly and regularly, to remove the dust, the mud and any rainwater accumulation, riding a Stairglide 120 Outdoor stair chair lift will be just as easy as riding the protected, indoor model.
