The most popular straight lifts that O’Connor Carroll install are Acorn, Platinum and Homeglide.
Acorn Straight Stairlift
The Acorn straight stairlift comes in a manual or power swivel version. Like all stairlifts the user faces across the stairs as the lift climbs the stairs. At the top the user controls the lever to rotate the the seat to face the landing. Now the user can transfer from the seat. The lift blocks the staircase in this position. Therefore the user cannot fall down the stairs.
Simply put, the manual version requires the user to rotate the seat. The power swivel version does this automatically.
Acorn are very popular machines because they are very reliable and very robust. For example O’Connor Carroll have service contracts for some councils. We regularly meet old machines that are still working away after 10 to 12 years.
Stairlift installation is within a few hours. So there is very little disturbance for the customer. All stairlifts will require a power point.
Platinum Horizon Straight Stairlift
The Platinum Horizon straight stairlift has very useful features.
As with other lifts the Horizon comes with a manual swivel seat as standard. The power swivel is an optional feature.
The Horizon Standard has a weight limit of 120kg (19st)
With the Horizon the power swivel version has a weight limit of 140kg (22st.). This is very useful for clients who would previously have opted for a heavy duty machine. The lift would have had to be ordered specifically. Whereas now it is just a standard stock item.
The power swivel version has another important feature. The lift can operate as a manual or power swivel. This is very useful. If the power swivel does not operate the user can simply use the lever. In other brands this is not the case. So very very important if there was a problem with the power swivel mechanism.
Another feature we like is the hinge rail version. The Platinum hinge is one of the best on the market
Like all lifts the Horizon folds up after use to leave enough space for people to pass the stairlift on the stairs.
