Working at Height... Powered by Compressed Air

Pneumatic access platforms for ATEX regulated environments...

C&S Equipment has been supplying, installing, repairing and maintaining WALL-MAN®, LIFTMAN and LIFTMAN FOLD compressed-air powered work platforms since 1993.

WALL-MAN, LIFTMAN and LIFTMAN FOLD are well accepted and safe methods of 'Working at Height'. Using these products will aid legislative compliance and improve quality and efficiency.

Our platforms are widely used throughout the world in a range of applications, including:

Working at Height
  • Commercial vehicle repair workshops
  • Bus & Coach repair and maintenance workshops
  • Manufacture of trucks, buses and trains
  • Painting of aircraft wings
  • Powder coating of vehicle trailers
  • Preparation and painting of large industrial engines
  • Workshops that repair and upgrade trains
  • Surface preparation of large architectural items
  • Manufacture of special purpose vehicles and trailers
  • Tank cleaning in chemical recycling facilities
  • Preparation and painting of wind turbine blades and towers
  • Various marine tasks including GRP hull preparation
  • In manufacturing environments, to enable operator to efficiently interface with large mechanical handling devices

Reduced maintenance down time on automated production lines

In all these applications WALL-MAN, LIFTMAN and LIFTMAN FOLD help reduce the time taken to do the job and improve safety and productivity.

If you have to work at height and need a safe, reliable, proven product to increase your efficiency and profit while reducing your risk - contact us today.

If you need an installed or mobile solution for working at height:

  • that is safe
  • that is easy to use
  • that has a well proven series of benefits derived over 20 years of continuous development

...then you need look no further than WALL-MAN or LIFTMAN.


WALL-MAN is air driven, so there are no ignition risks or oil mist hazards. It can also move rapidly and safely to the required working position, and does not obstruct the rest of the work space. It moves in all three axes of operation, simultaneously if required, and can provide access around the object being worked on as well as at the sides and top. The compressed air supply for tools, spray guns and operator breathing air masks can be taken from the onboard supply point.

There is no need for air hoses trailing on the floor.



For stand-alone or non-installed use or where a variety of work areas need to be addressed then the solution is provided by LIFTMAN.

LIFTMAN provides an alternative solution for use in such circumstances where it is not practical to use installed platforms or where the access requirements are limited or the work is outside, for example.

LIFTMAN is compact (only 800 mm x 1050 mm at the base) and has a very tight turning circle. Despite this, it is remarkably stable, and would need to be tipped to almost 30 degrees before it would be at risk of toppling.



An ATEX certified pneumatic personal man lift with foldable mast, reducing the need for scaffolds and the cost and time spent on maintenance.

The LIFTMAN FOLD man lift is designed and developed for the offshore and onshore segments for oil and gas installations and the chemical industry.

The LIFTMAN FOLD man lift has a foldable mast, which allows the man lift to be transported through narrow passages and into elevators so the unit can be moved to another level inside a platform or building for maintenance work. It is moved manually by using an integrated handle. The up/down function is driven by compressed air. In cases where no outlet for compressed air is available, scuba diving tanks can be used. The LIFTMAN FOLD can be used with the mast folded as well.


EFFEX Vacuum Extraction

High-performance and cost-effective EFFEX Industrial Vacuum Extraction Units.

The MB units extract fumes and dust directly from the source, avoiding pollution spreading to the operator's breathing zone and the SP units are well suited as central units for the extraction of pollution especially when combined with a FU-A filter.


As well as a much safer operation significant business productivity gains come from utilisation of WALL-MAN, LIFTMAN or LIFTMAN FOLD.

A comparison with ladders, staging or scaffolds will enable the benefits of using WALL-MAN, LIFTMAN or LIFTMAN FOLD to be seen easily since operators do not constantly need to reposition cumbersome and heavy equipment to complete the job. The result is consistent quality and a reduction in operator fatigue.

In addition to these obvious benefits the following savings should be considered both of which can make a significant contribution to profit:

  • the reduction in lost labour costs resulting from employees being off work following falls
  • the avoidance of consequential or compensatory costs of employee claims following injury

The experienced and skilled staff at C&S Equipment are always on hand to provide advice and guidance in the application of WALL-MAN, LIFTMAN or LIFTMAN FOLD products.
