Climbing is a great way to challenge young people, in a sport that’s different from most other school sport options. It’s inclusive as individuals can develop at their own pace. Schools can book a one off visit for activities week or end of term rewards for the class, or block out a regular double period for climbing and work towards a nationally recognised proficiency award ( NICAS)
Climbing walls for schools & playgrounds
Most children like to climb so here is your chance to install a purpose-built traverse climbing wall and let the kids climb their hearts out!
Climbing is not only great for developing gross motor skills, it also builds strength, supports coordination and overall physical ability and confidence. Perfect for children of all ages.
We install traverse climbing walls with a range of hand holds and foot holds that allow children to traverse across a wall rather than climbing up it. It provides a great way for children to exercise and is hugely popular in school playgrounds.
European standards for playground equipment
Traversing across takes just as much skill, strength and agility as going up. In fact, many professional climbers regularly use traverse walls to warm up and hone their skills. It is a safe yet exciting way to climb and is specially suited to children, as their feet are never more than 40 centimetres off the ground!
With over 20 years experience of installing high quality traverse climbing walls that comply with European standards for playground equipment in a range of schools and leisure facilities, we can cater for most needs.
If you think your school or organisation would benefit from having their very own climbing wall then please contact Derek on 0141 427 9633 or email…..
How the walls are made
When we install traverse walls, the climbing holds are fixed directly onto existing internal or external walls or onto custom made wood panels, no special preparation is required from you.
The design includes a band of footholds approximately 40 centimetres from ground level, a vertical gap of 1-1.5 metres and then a band of hand holds. On average there are 7 to 8 holds per linear metre. With footholds no more than half a metre above ground level, there is no requirement for safety matting or special supervision!
Traverse climbing walls start from approximately £800.00 plus vat, depending on the length of the wall, your site and location. Contact Derek to discuss your specific requirements and for a customised.
