Brooks 130 T700 Straight Stairlift

Acorn T700

Brooks have been making stairlifts in Great Britain for over 30 years. It all started when Frederick Brooks used his engineering talent to design a stairlift for his wife. Since then the Brooks stairlifts have gained an excellent reputation in the industry.

The latest Brooks 130 T700 straight stairlift was developed with low maintenance, high reliability and excellent functionality in mind.

Anglian Lifts are a fully authorised and trained dealer of the Brooks straight stairlift product range. This includes installation, maintenance, repairs and servicing.

Brooks Straight Stairlifts are built to last, with low maintenance and high reliability. They run on maintenance free DC power packs, which are automatically recharged at the end of every trip. This type of power ensures that the stairlifts are safe to use, and are incredibly smooth.

Folded brooks acorn stairlift

The stairlift folds into a compact position

The arms, footplate and seat completely fold up, this leaves easy access to the staircase for other users.

Brooks stairlift remote control

The stairlift has wireless remote controls

The remote controls allows the user/s to call or send the chair which makes it convenient when multiple people are using the stairlift. The remote control also operates any extra equipment automatically such as powered swivel seats or automatic folding hinge tracks.

safety edge protection on acorn lifts

Safety cut-outs on the carriage and footplate

The safety system immediately cuts the movement if it detects a blockage in either direction of travel, sensors around the edge of the footplate and the carriage activate if an obstruction is detected and immediately stop the travel of the lift, once the obstruction is cleared the lift will return to normal function. This gives you complete peace of mind.

swivelled seat on the acorn brooks stairlift

The chair swivels and locks at 45° or 90° positions

The rotation of the chair helps the user get in and out easily and safely. There is also a powered swivel seat option that allows you to move the seat automatically when a manual swivel seat could be an issue due to mobility.

Easy to use and ergonomic hand controls

It’s easy to use the Brooks 130 stairlift due to the paddle controls built into the armrests, with one on each side for you to choose from your travel comfort is guaranteed.

acorn diagnostic display

Fully integrated diagnostic display system

For ease of use and for the more technical information the stairlift incorporates a digital diagnostic display. This display shows simple information such as battery level and status of charge, information regarding safety circuits that may have been triggered to more involved diagnostics such as brake status and relay condition. See our article on what the Brooks/Acorn error codes mean here

The installation of the Brooks straight stairlift can be achieved in as little as an hour for a basic specification, and only around two hours if the lift is fully loaded with all the available ancillary options.

Most of the preparation work, such as cutting the rail to the correct length for your stairs and fitting the ancillary options are done at our warehouse prior to the installation taking place in your home. This minimises not only any mess that could be generated during the installation process, but also minimises the time we spend in your home installing it.

Of course, if you want to spend another hour or so having tuition on how it works then we are more than happy to oblige.

Other ancillary options are available for the Brooks Straight Stairlift.

  • Outdoor Lift – Fully weather-proofed, ideal for outdoor use. With the same features as the standard Brooks stairlift
  • Powered Footrest – A powered footrest allows the user to automatically lift the footrest using small buttons on the side of the lift when in the parking position. (not available on HD or Outdoor models)
  • Hinged Track rail – In situations where they may be an obstruction at the bottom of the stairs (usually a door), or where the stairlift could cause a tripping hazard, a hinged track rail can be specified to ‘fold back’ the rail away from the obstruction when not in use. (not available on HD or Outdoor models)
  • Heavy Duty Lift – For users up to 25 stone (159kg) with an optional wider seat and heavier duty batteries as standard.
  • Sit / Stand – Designed for multiple users with different requirements, the sit stand model allows the user to use the lift either sitting or standing, depending on preference.
