Design Considerations For Climbing Walls

Dec 7, 2007
Wall climbing is a sport, which needs a lot of strength and determination. But the design structure of the wall plays an important part too. That's simply because, if the design structure is not the way the climber wants it to be, there is no way that he can even think of scaling the wall structure. In case, you are considering designing the climbing walls, you should be assured the wall climbing industry offer you variety of materials and like equipments. Therefore, as a buyer, it is important for you to know the importance and the drawbacks of the various materials and equipments available, ensuring that you don't compromise over its quality, so that you get the best wall climbing design.

The first thing that you can do is draw the design of your current climbing wall, even a simple outline would do for this matter. It is always good to draw a sketch first, since that helps you to determine the different facets of the climbing wall. If you're good with numbers, then the measurement aspect of the climbing wall should come naturally to you. However, you may find it a bit tough to get the angles right, in the beginning. Therefore, for this purpose, it is advisable that you take all the dimensions according to the scale.

Some of the important things that you must consider with respect to designing a climbing wall are as follows:

. Keep the expenses within your budget. This simply means that you have to choose the materials and the design that you can afford. This is particularly important in case of climbing schools and other institutions alike. Therefore, when opting for any climbing design, you have to remember the design that you have selected must be at par with the latest wall climbing designs in the world, so that the wall surface wouldn't have to be changed too often.

. Another important consideration that you possibly cannot avoid is the fact for whom the climbing wall will be designed, i.e., whether it is for professional climbers or for the amateurs. The design also depends upon factors such as frequency of the climbers' visits, their skills, etc. This simply means that you have to make certain accommodations for the climbers according to their needs and at the same time introduce some challenging courses to sharpen their climbing skills.

. Whatever wall surface type you choose, you have to remember that it should have a long life. With respect to the longevity of the climbing walls, there are many options that you can consider. One of the most important aspects that you have to remember is that the wall you have selected must be flexible to the evolving nature of this wall climbing sport.

Therefore, when it comes to the installation aspect of the wall-climbing surface, you have to take all the above-mentioned factors into consideration.

Apart from these basic factors, other aspects that you have to look out for would include taking the help of an expert licensed engineer for the installation purpose and the assistance of a wall climbing designing professional. The wall climbing design can really act as the deciding factor in determining whether the wall climbing experience will be exciting or will it just be too dull for the climbers.
