Acorn / Brooks Stairlifts
As you may be aware as a result of recent publicity some older Brooks / Acorn stairlifts require a replacement of the seat post. This applies to some Brooks 120 stairlifts manufactured between 2007 and 2011. As a Brooks dealer, we are contacting all customer who purchased one of these lifts from us during this time. To check whether the part needs replacing, we need the serial number of the lift. The serial number can be found under the seat on a white sticker.
Based on an independent risk assessment, Acorn advises that it is safer to continue to use the stairlift until the part is replaced, rather than using the stairs unaided because the risk of falling when using the stairs unaided is much higher than the low risk potential for the seat weld to fail.
