How to build a climbing wall
DateTime: Posted by: Admin In: View: 1479

The artificial climbing wall is assembled from hundreds of rock plates of less than 1 square meter. The rock plates can be assembled into different inclinations for climbing difficulty, such as the various rock states seen in nature such as the bent wall, the eaves, and the straight wall, which are fixed on the bracket to create various spatial shapes. The climbing wall reduces the dangers such as falling rocks and falling in the natural rock field in the wild, and can experience the pleasure of climbing and challenge the self-limit under the simulation condition without any external danger. The climbing wall is not affected by climate and time. It can be used all year round. It can be installed indoors and outdoors. In areas without natural rock fields, rock climbing can also be enjoyed.

Design wall 

First of all, we must determine the role of climbing walls: recreation, training, competitions, etc.

Second, determine the size of the climbing wall and whether it is a separate building.

Also determine the target object (user).

Building a framework 

1. Choose support and build a steel frame.

The support is a structure that can erect a wall. Existing walls and eaves can be used to support the climbing wall. Typical structures include vertical, horizontal, and some spaces that can be attached to the diagonal supports of the cover. The steel frame is welded to the wall in a pre-designed shape and angle.

2. Select the cover and install rock.

The lid is a material that climbers can climb very much. Most of the materials used as wall coverings for climbing walls are multilayer boards of 30 px thick or thicker. This suitable splint is sufficient for climbing walls. Medium density fiberboard can also be used in special cases. The rock plates are connected to the steel frame by screws and drilled on the rock plates to prepare the rock points.

3. Process the rock plates and install rock points.

The rock surface can be applied from a panel without any treatment to a coating that coats the wood splint with a polymer. Adjustable position rocks can be purchased from outdoor stores or wood, stone or resin. Each rock point is secured to the cover by a T-nut with a 10 mm screw. The number of T nuts should be greater than the number of rock points, providing more options for route settings.

4. Beautify your climbing wall and add a boulder mat.

Add some logs or cartoon shapes to the bouldering wall and pay attention to the color matching. You can use stones to create your favorite patterns on the climbing wall. You can use stones to create your favorite patterns on the climbing wall. Sponge or foam can be chosen as a cushion to protect the safety of the climber.

Purchase equipment 

Climbing wall needs equipment to be purchased:

Slings: Soft straps, mechanically stitched or hand-knotted into closed loops of different lengths to provide a soft connection between the guards.

Seat belt: The seat belt is worn on the climber to withstand the weight and momentum of the climber falling or falling. The belt of the seat belt is the force-receiving part and the other leg belt is designed for comfort and convenience.

Protector: When the main rope passes the protector in the correct way, its special structure can increase the friction force, so that the brake end of the main rope can control the larger weight of the force end with a small grip force.

Fast hanging: the two ends of the flat belt are respectively connected by metal locks and fast hanging. When in use, one end is buckled into the seat belt, and one end is connected with the human body belt or the main rope, which is convenient to operate.

Bouldering mat: A means of protection in bouldering movement that provides cushioning and shock absorption.

Helmet: Effectively prevents head injuries caused by abnormal fall postures. A helmet must be worn to protect the forehead back and brain.

Climbing shoes: The sole is made of special rubber and the friction is greatly increased. From ordinary shoes to climbing shoes is an important change in climbing levels.

Master lock: As a kind of safety equipment for outdoor sports, the master lock effectively protects the safety of the relevant personnel.

Drop device: Use the friction between the instrument and the rope to slow down the rope speed and design through self-locking deceleration to ensure that the sag does not fall quickly and the dropper can slow down.

Security check

  Is the base of the climbing wall firm?

  Is the climbing wall fixing rope firm?

  Whether the safety rope has cracks or burrs

  Are the seat belt and the figure ring damaged?

  Is the climbing wall nail strong?

Sum up

For the busy working people in modern cities, time is money, and the construction of climbing walls can save a lot of travel time. Let adventurous people experience thrills and excitement at any time. Rock climbing can also exercise and improve unity between people. The climbing wall can also be built at home to give the child more fun and exercise.
