Access Platforms – Mobile LIFT-MAN

+ Add to Quote Request

No matter the height and no matter the position, the LIFT-MAN will get you where you need to go. This personnel mobile access platform is designed to assist workplace operations and promote greater efficiency and productivity.

Operating entirely pneumatically, this device is perfect in small areas and booths where the distance between the object and the wall is small. With the LIFT-MAN, you go up and so do your operations, improving productivity and increasing workplace safety.

This device is designed to assist operators in access to their workpieces inside a spray booth. The device is operated entirely from compressed air. The mobile access platform, with self-centring steering and driving function, is independent of the platform up/down function. The LIFT-MAN™ inhabits a small working space, so it is compact and easy to manoeuvre. The control panel and air supply points are incorporated inside the basket of the operator. We supply and deliver these units fully assembled and ready for use.

There is also a new  LIFT-MAN™ folding version. The folding function enables passage through lower doors etc. See the PDF below.

LIFT-MAN™ access platform is the perfect partner for the WALL-MAN® device. Masking, sanding, repair jobs and sign-writing/decal application are usual LIFT-MAN™ tasks. Both the WALL-MAN® and LIFT-MAN™ are simple to function and improve productivity in the workplace – they can save time by up to 50%.

Additional Information

The original access platform

The LIFT-MAN is typically used in booths where buses, commercial vehicles, trucks or trams are painted or where preparation (sanding, masking, etc.) takes place. As a pneumatic access platform, it connects via compressed air and its hose and reel allow the unit to travel freely inside. This operation keeps costs low.

Increased Safety

Increasing efficiency when working is one thing, but increasing safety is a whole other invaluable benefit. The pneumatic personnel mobile access platform is designed to ensure the safety of all workers and complies to standard Occupational Health and Safety requirements and regulations. 

The fully enclosed operator cage, fail safe operating mode, lack of ignition and stable platform all add up to the safest personnel platform on the market. 

Mobile and Compact Design

This mobile access platform is easy to move and simple to manoeuvre even in tight work areas. Driveable at any height, the controls are designed to be logical and intuitive. Your operators will find driving this platform highly satisfying and extremely productive. Designed with practicality in mind, it offers an industry-leading design to maximise compactness without compromising on safety or functionality.

Self-Centring Steering

With a self-centring steering and independent driving functionality, the operator can control the cage to move up and down with ease. This further extends to right/left and forward/backward motions at the same time. As such, the access platform is made from top to toe with practicality and ease of use as top priorities. The platform is even still manually moveable when not connected to an air supply point. 

A platform full of compressed air

This device is operated entirely from compressed air, allowing usage in all types of working space environments, whether or not there are explosive or hazardous materials close by. No gas, no flammable materials, no risk. The control panel, onboard air hose reel and air supply points are subtly incorporated inside the basket of the operator.
