The Wall-Man XL is a much bigger man lift than the original Wall-Man. The large Wall-Man XL man lift is designed to target the very large spray booths with large object to be worked upon. The Wall-Man XL pneumatic man lift gives you extra height for really tall objects and working space for two operators inside the basket.


The big Wall-Man XL is purely a pneumatic man lift system, designed to work in an ATEX environment, where explosive gases and fumes may be present. With its wide and large cage and increased lifting capacity, it is ideal for two persons working on large and long objects, such as large trains. Wall-Man XL only need to be supplied with compressed air as energy, with a recommended pressure of 7 bars. Air is accessible many places inside a paint booth.

Typical use of Wall-Man XL

The Wall-Man XL is a large fixed access platform, which typically would be installed in booths where painting or preparation work on tall and large object is being done. The large cage and lifting capacity of the Wall-Man XL also gives the opportunity to lift 2 operators to work at the object at the same time.

How you control the Wall-Man XL

The Wall-Man XL man lift is controlled by the operator from a control console located in the front of the platform, this allows the operator to face forward and observe the area as they move the man lift. The man lift travels on a rail system on the ground and has upper guiding rail fixed to the wall of the booth.


The X-axis travel (left and right movement of the lift) allows the lift to travel back and forth along the length of the booth on the upper rail system.


The Z-axis travel (up and down movement of the platform) provides the ability to elevate the operator platform from a lowered position to a maximum height of 6,0 meters, giving the operator approx. a working height of 7,9 meters.


The Y-axis travel (in and out motion of the operator platform) provides the ability to move the operator platform from a retracted position from the wall to a fully extended position of 2,690 meters (from the booth wall to the front of the operator platform).

What is the difference between a standard Wall-Man and a Wall-Man XL?

The main difference between a Wall-Man and a Wall-Man XL is how it is installed, capacity and size. A Wall-Man XL would rin with rails on the the ground, while a standard Wall-Man would have its lower wheels on the wall. A Wall-Man XL have a much wider cage, suitable for good working space for two persons and can lift 250 kgs.
