Climbing the wall is a good way to let the children exercise in a multi-faceted manner while playing, and stay away from video games for the time being. Climbing the wall is an interesting way for them to exercise and build confidence. In fact, installing a climbing wall is much simpler than you think. As long as you can prepare the materials and follow the correct steps, it is generally difficult to make mistakes.

What tools do you need to prepare?
Pegboard (the larger, the better); Pegs; Drill; Screws; Bolts; Nails; Hammer; Wrench; Hot glue gun; Caulking gun.
Choice of climbing wall nails
Four catches can be used. If the direct cement surface can be directly imploded, the installation method of the rock plate material is different.
Climbing wall height considerations
Regardless of where you decide to build your climbing wall, you should consider it to be at least 2.5 meters high and at least 2.5 meters wide. The depth, that is, the distance from the top of the climbing wall to the farthest point you may slip, should be at least 3 meters. If it is less than this distance, you may hit the wall or the obstacle behind you when you slip.

Step 1 - Select area
If you don't want to install a climbing wall in a busy area, you really need an area large enough to support the wall. It is a nice area in the garage or even the attic. Just make sure that you choose to place the wall where you can place some soft things underneath to prevent falling.
Step 2 - Find the stud
Since people will climb on the wall, the nail plate should be fixed to the wall nail. We need to tap along the wall until we hear a less empty sound. A less empty sound indicates the position of the stud. Mark the area and move along the rest of the wall until the area covered by the climbing wall is identified and marked as a stud.
Step 3 - Drill bolts
When you drill and tighten the bolts, you may need a friend or family member to help you hold the nail wall. Continue doing this until all the bolts are in place and tightened.
Step 4 - Mounting screws and nails
Insert screws and nails to help secure and support the nail wall. Place them around the climbing wall to provide the extra support you need. Don't be too small, because climbing walls are the best with the walls of the room.
Step 5 - Install Pegs
Next, the studs are mounted by gluing them onto them and sticking them together. Some hot glue guns may need to hold the studs in place while the glue is setting and drying. Use the hooks we need to install to do this.
Step 6 - Sealing the wall
Seal the wall with a caulking gun to complete. This prevents water or moisture from entering between the nailboard wall and the room wall, and moisture can cause rust and other problems with the metal nailboard. Allow the sealant to dry before testing the climbing nail wall.
The climbing wall safety check is an important part of the safe operation and operation of any well-maintained climbing facility. The inspection of the climbing wall is carried out in accordance with the current standard EN 12572 and best working practices. The main inspection is defined as a thorough periodic inspection of the climbing facility, which is usually done once a year, but varies depending on the type of climbing wall installed or the extent to which the climbing wall is used.
In addition to the main inspections, the relays may be inspected and certified according to LOLER (lifting work and equipment regulations) or under height rules 12, EN 795 and 7883.
If you install the climbing wall yourself, you will need to create an operating manual. If you have a company installed for you, you should get an operating manual for the climbing wall. The operating manual should include: operating procedures; emergency/rescue plans; equipment to be used; teacher competence levels; structural limitations; records of operations, equipment, inspections, maintenance and accident records.
Can we build a climbing wall on the scaffolding?
Yes. Scaffolding, climbing and scaffolding structures must be constructed in accordance with European Standard BS EN 1004 (Working Towers made of moving channels and prefabricated components). Material, dimensions, design load, safety and performance requirements) and European standard BS EN 2482 (wood scaffolding specification). It is recommended that the wall be fixed to real estate such as buildings wherever possible and supported by its design. The risk of potential overturning of a free-standing tower is greatest. If you are worried or worried about erecting and operating a climbing wall, talk to local experts who are usually willing to help.
How often should we check the climbing equipment?
You must always refer to the manufacturer's instructions on how to check/inspect regularly, replace walls and equipment, and how to store them properly. Equipment and inspection records should be saved.
We inherited a mobile climbing wall. Can we use it?
Yes, but before you use it for the first time, you need to make sure it is suitable and safe to use. More guidance on equipment, event management, inspection and maintenance.
The purpose of all things is for children, so the safety of climbing walls must not be sloppy. Be sure to study security checks carefully, which is the most important of all steps. Assuring safety, parents can be more assured, and children can climb more happily.
