We have a new climbing wall now what?

Climbing wall management is equally important to climbing facility design. We have seen beautifully designed climbing facilities sit virtually unused due to inadequate management. A climbing facility is a blank slate it is up to you to make the most of the opportunities. We encourage organizations with climbing facilities to get involved with the Climbing Wall Association. The CWA has an amazing range of resources available to you. Visit them today at www.climbingwallindustry.or

Is liability a concern with climbing walls?

Indoor climbing on artificial walls has a long history and a remarkable track record for safety. It is important to contact your insurance provider to discuss the specifics of your policy. It is likely that you are already covered but you want to make sure. There are a variety of resources available with regard to operations and liability through the Climbing Wall Association. 

What type of landing surface do we need?

Selecting an appropriate landing surface is a very important part of developing a climbing facility. It is also a significant expense that should be addressed from the beginning. There are a wide variety of options available in the marketplace and we can help guide you through the selection process.

How many climbing holds do we need?

The number of holds you need depends on the type of project. In general the smaller the wall the more holds we recommend. This will maximize the climbing potential. For home walls we recommend 10-25 holds per panel. For traverse walls we recommend 7-10 holds per panel. For commercial gyms and recreation centers we recommend 10-15 holds per panel.

Do Elevate panels require professional installation?

No, our panels can be conveniently mounted to either a wood or steel frame using appropriate fasteners. We are happy to provide you with installation techniques. We also offer a range of design/build services.

How big does a climbing wall need to be to be useful?

It is possible to get a lot of use out of a small space. The size of your facility will be determined by a variety of considerations:

  • Space available
  • Intended use
  • Number of users
  • Age and skills of users
  • Roped Climbing or Bouldering
  • Budget

We offer a full range of design/build and consulting services. Elevate Climbing Walls has more that 25 years of experience and we can help you determine the optimal size facility to meet your needs.

What type of climbing wall is right for us?

This is a very important question to ask. There are many reasons to build a climbing facility:

  • Provide Recreational opportunities for employees or customers
  • Fitness
  • Team building
  • Generate interest in your business or products
  • Generate Revenue

The more you know about why you want a climbing facility the more we can help you identify the right type of facility for you.
