Segments

Segments for Wall-Man and Liftman pneumatic work platforms

Wall-Man and Liftman man lifts are currently being used in many different segments worldwide. During the years the segments have grown in both width and depth, demonstrating the flexibility of the man lifts.

 

Aircraft / Aerospace industry

Painting of very expensive aircraft components requires extremely high accuracy of workmanship. This places have great demands on personnel access platforms in terms of manoeuvrability. The WALL-MAN man lift provides the required accuracy as the operator has full control of left/right, up/down and in/out movements using the ergonomically correctly placed joysticks.

Objects are typically bodies, wings and parts. Application are typically for preparation, washing and painting.

 

Commercial vehicles (cv) / Trucks

Commercial heavy utility vehicles have traditionally been the most important area of use for the WALL-MAN and LIFTMAN pneumatic access platforms. Manufacturers, body builders and repair and maintenance shops all over the world have found WALL-MAN to be the optimal work platform in their spray booths and paint shops. Operator safety, improved quality of workmanship, a better working environment and increased productivity are important elements ensuring that the investment will generate high returns.

Objects are typically trucks, lorries, vans, special vehicles, tanks etc. Applications are typically preparation, washing and painting.

 

Rail / Rolling stock

There is an increasing number of WALL-MANs sold to manufacturers of rolling stock (trains, trams and light rail vehicles). More and more people are discovering the advantages of fast and flexible three-dimensional movement: left/right, up/down and in/out. The WALL-MAN can be modified to meet special requirements, for example by moving the door to the front, extending the mast to have increase height of the cage etc.

Objects are typically trains, trams, locomotives, wagons, subway, Applications are typically preparation and painting.

 

Military

From Korea via the Falklands to the UK and US the WALL-MAN is valued by the defence sector due to its reliability and modest maintenance requirements. In addition to paint application, the defence sector uses the WALL-MAN for several other tasks.

Objects are typically trucks, lorries, vans, special parts, special vehicles such as tanks, armoured personnel carriers, infantry fighting vehicles etc. Applications are typically preparation, washing and painting

 

Bus and coach

The WALL-MAN and LIFTMAN work platforms were initially designed for buses and lorries. Small maintenance shops as well as large international manufactures of buses and coaches have put the excellent properties of the Reglo man lifts to good use. Adaptation to each individual cabin and ideal distance to the object are features that ensure economy and a perfect finish.

Objects are typically buses, electrical buses, coaches. Applications are typically preparation, washing and painting.

 

Industrial

WALL-MAN and LIFTMAN man lift are now being used by an ever increasing number of businesses. From the biggest wind turbine blades to the smallest conveyer parts – from conventional coating of large surfaces to powder-coating of open steel structures – WALL-MAN and LIFTMAN platform can be adapted for most situations in which paint is applied.

Objects can typically be containers, earth moving equipment, mining equipment, ventilation, transformators, heat oil tanks, agricultural equipment and machinery, marine engines, propellers, turbine blades etc. Applications would be preparation, washing and painting.

 

Paint booth manufacturers

After over 30 years in the market, the WALL-MAN has been approved by most manufacturers of paint booths in most locations worldwide. The WALL-MAN is widely recognised for its reliability and long service life, and can be installed in the vast majority of paint booths. Reglo works closely with all the paint booth manufacturers to provide users with the ideal combination of booth and access platform / man lift.

 

Other uses

We are always discovering new applications for the WALL-MAN and LIFTMAN concept. There is currently a need for man lift in connection with the powder painting of increasingly large objects. Jet-cleaning of large pieces of machinery is another area for which Reglo can provide WALL-MANs with suitable surface coating. Chain drive can be supplied as an option in wet / moisty environments.
