Climbing Wall Systems
Designed, manufactured and installed to BS EN 12572-2007, King Kong Climbing Walls prides themselves on working closely with their clients to consult and involve the customer to ensure they not only end up with the product they want but also create a climbing environment that will keep people coming back for years.
The company has developed several unique climbing systems that offer a range of climbing surfaces from simple flat panels to state of the art Rocktopia systems that simulate real rock closer than anything else on the market.
Types of Climbing Wall
Climbing Walls Top Rope/Lead: Lead walls are often the main focus of any climbing facility. They typically range in height from 6m to 20m or more and can feature a wide range of angles and challenges for the climber.
School Walls: A climbing wall at your school is the ideal way to get children engaged in sport as well as helping to build coordination, communication and self confidence. What's more with foldable matting, climbing walls can be installed using minimal floor space so your gyms or sports halls can still be used for a full range of normal sports actives.
Bouldering Walls: Bouldering walls are low height climbing walls designed for use without the aid of ropes or belay gear ,on average 4m in height. As the climber is using the wall un aided the standard EN 12572-2007 states there must be a fit for purpose safety surface located beneath the wall.
Mobile Walls: Our mobile climbing tower is an impressive 6 metre high freestanding climbing wall with the state of the art ROCKTOPIA climbing surface. It is easily transported by means of a trailer system to the venue where it is to be used.
Traverse Walls: If you've got an unused outside or indoor wall then why not put it to good use by installing a traversing wall. School traversing walls have become increasingly popular globally and especially within the UK. This is essentially due to do the benefits climbing has to offer combined with the low risk involved. Climbing teaches good body movement and sharpens sequential problem solving skills whilst promoting the development and use of good judgement. It also makes exercising fun and helps develop strength, flexibility, balance and coordination.
Climbing Wall Systems
Stone Coated Ply Panels: This is the simplest and least expensive form of climbing wall surface. It has a thin resin and sand coating for added friction and is ideal for competition walls and covering large areas at minimum cost. It has 22 bolt on hold sites per m2 which is more than ample to maintain interesting routes as the hold variations are virtually endless. The panels are bolted to a steel framework that is capable of withstanding in excess of 25kN at the bolt protection points.
Stone Coated GRP: Stone coated GRP (Glass Reinforced Plastic) panels are the latest technology in climbing wall systems. The GRP system comes in two forms, flat and curved, with both forms providing great strength and durability. The stone coating that is applied gives the panels a superb level of grip which doesn't wear away with regular use. The Stone Coated GRP system contains around 8 to 12 bolt-on holds sites per m2. Flat areas are added to the mould to create the bolt-on holds sites to make sure that the holds are embedded on a perfectly flat surface.
Multifaceted SC Panels: The use of multifaceted triangles provides a countless number of climbing possibilities as well as a greater challenge than found using flat rectangular shapes. Multifaceted panels create a dynamic visual experience that cannot be duplicated by any other surface or shape.
Digital Freeform: Digital Freeform walls are the state of the art. They look and feel like natural rock and are highly featured. They are hand sculpted and are three dimensionally curved. This means that creating any shape is possible, from big rounded aretes to deep chimneys, soaring crack lines to bulging overlaps. Freeform is only restricted by the imagination. As well as the overall shape there will be an array of smaller features like pockets, jugs, slopers and undercuts; every wall is a one off rock sculpture.
