Roped climbing walls allow your students to climb as high as possible with the comfort and safety of a rope, enabling them to push their skills and abilities without being held back by the prospect of falling. The use of ropes likewise makes challenges accessible to all, with climbing difficulty varying from beginner to more complex depending on the needs of your pupils. Our roped walls also satisfy the requirements of both GCSE PE and NICAS (National Indoor Climbing Award Schemes) curriculums, should your students wish to progress their climbing to obtain awards and qualifications.
Requiring a minimum height of 6-10 metres, roped walls are typically installed at one end of a school multi-sports hall, using very little floor space which allows for other sports and activities to take place when not in use. Fold-away safety matting can be fitted to further maximise space and prevent climbing without the supervision of a teacher.
Roped walls may be used for top roping, or have the option of being equipped with TRUBLUE auto belays – to enable climbers to ascend without the need for a partner.
School climbing wall packages include all necessary equipment, such as ropes and harnesses, plus our team will train your teaching staff to supervise climbers with special educational needs and disabilities safely.
