W5/Dalton XXL

Robust and lightweight for heavy users

The W5 XXL is a robust and ultra-lightweight rigid wheelchair, ideal for users whose high weight and physical strength require a reinforced frame with additional bracing. The W5 XXL thus ensures an optimal strength-to-weight ratio and fully utilises the user’s energy. The maximum user weight of the chair is 250 kg.

W5 vs. Dalton

If removable foot and leg supports are desired on a W5 XXL, it will instead be an XXL version of the Dalton wheelchair. The Dalton has a slightly different frame construction which enables the design with leg propelling.

The specifications of the XXL versions of a W5 and a Dalton are the same, but the wheelchairs have different names and article numbers as the frame constructions differ.

XXL – extra sturdy

A W5 is a rigid wheelchair with a closed box frame in 7020 aluminium. 7020 aluminium is the strongest weldable aluminium alloy, whose stiffness surpasses all titanium. This alloy is typically used for armoured vehicles, motorcycles and bicycle frames.

The box frame of the chair is extra reinforced. Instead of 25 mm, the tubes are 30 mm. The larger tubes give the chair extra rigidity, making it both more robust and easier to drive, both for the user, who needs less energy, but also for the assistant who pushes the chair. At the same time, aluminium is a much lighter material than, for example, steel, making the chair incredibly light and solid at the same time.

Additional anti tip wheels that can be folded in and out can also be mounted at the back of the chair, making it easy to navigate up stairs and other elevations.

The W5 XXL can also be fitted with the ILSA backrest system and ergonomic seat for good support and better seating comfort. The backrest of the XXL chair has both a wider and smaller back that follows the contour of the user, and the seat width is produced up to 68 cm.

The chair is also crash-tested and can therefore be used in an adapted car with an anchorage device and provided that the head restraint is also used while driving.

No 2 people are the same

At Wolturnus, almost every chair is built individually, based on an order form drawn up jointly by our consultant and the user.

This means that our production workshop receives a drawing showing which tubes are to be used, what lengths they should be, and at what angle they should be bent and then welded together. All according to precise and individual measurements noted on the form. Wolturnus operates with dimensioning intervals down to 5 mm.

The delivery time is usually about 5 weeks from the approved drawing.
