Wiehag - World's largest XXXL chair

Painted with WAGNER system

The red chairs of XXXL furniture stores are widely recognized from TV commercials. The world's largest chair, as confirmed by the Guinness Book of Records, is 30 meters tall and stands in St. Florian near Linz. It was manufactured by Wiehag and painted with a wet coating system from WAGNER. Furniture chain XXXLutz chose Wiehag GmbH in Altheim (Upper Austria) above all for its short delivery times and excellent product quality. Wiehag builds large-span bearing systems and complete roofs as well as roof, ceiling, and wall elements. One of its projects for example is the wooden roof construction on the new London Crossrail train station in Canary Wharf.

At a glance

  • Application of a weather-resistant coating with WAGNER Airless gun AG 14
  • Easy handling, little flushing & cleaning effort with the WAGNER Puma 28-40 Airless spraypack
  • Extremely compact, flexible & user-friendly system - ideal combination for coating large surfaces with little overspray

Customer challenge

The biggest challenge with the XXXL chairs was selecting the wood quality and the coating. Wiehag used 70 cubic meters of laminated Douglas fir timber for the chair in St. Florian. The company was searching for a system capable of efficiently coating large and long wooden parts inside the hall.

Our solution

The chair was coated using 140 liters of highly weatherproof paint and the WAGNER Puma 28-40 Airless spraypack in combination with the Airless gun AG 14. The result was a durable coating which is able to withstand the weather conditions for a long time. As this WAGNER system is extremely compact, flexible and user-friendly, Wiehag also uses it for other coating jobs. Meanwhile, Wiehag has three systems from WAGNER in operation.
