Encourage movement, teamwork, and critical thinking.

Climbing provides a vertical classroom for elementary through high school students. Not only does it encourage physical fitness and build confidence, but it also teaches critical thinking, hands on problem solving, teamwork and responsibility.Climbing can easily be incorporated into educational lesson plans beyond physical education and health related curriculum. Fun and interactive climbing related lesson plans easily tie into subjects such as geology, math, physics and geometry. The creative, academic possibilities are endless, and our team will work with you to achieve the best climbing wall solutions for your students.

EP collaborates with primary and secondary schools to meet the facility’s needs from budget constraints to programming objectives by using our standard or custom climbing panels and walls.

Standard and custom walls for schools k-12

From traverse walls that you may see in many gymnasiums around the country to custom bouldering and rope walls, EP is here to help bring a solution and positive approach, sharing our passion for the sport of climbing.

We feel there are huge educational components for youth of any ability level to recognize healthy play and a sport they could enjoy for life.

Standard Traverse Wall Panels

EP offers standard 4ft x 4ft panels that come with detailed installation instructions that can be installed by your team or contractor. Standard applications use 2 panels tall (8ft) to keep climbers low to the ground for practicing movements from side to side vs up and down. Fold-up mats are recommended to close off the wall when not in use.

Custom Bouldering Walls

Here you start to get into more shape and configuration within the climbing wall. These walls also start to get taller, introducing climbing in a more vertical fashion and the safety flooring getting thicker. Bouldering is a practice in climbing without the need for ropes and each time you fall off, you land on the safety surface for your fall protection.

Standard & Custom Roped Walls

Rope walls brings a few additional assessments for both programming knowledge and risk management. A solid understanding of working at height, belay techniques, teaching techniques and safety back-up is a large part of rope climbing. There are great additions like auto-belays available today that work as great back-up systems while new climbers are learning.

Rope climbing leads as a great learning tool, not only for active fun and vertical playing field, but also for: responsibility, teamwork, importance of communication and so many more life skills that go well beyond climbing itself.

Rope climbing like all types of climbing also promotes a large sense of accomplishment, self confidence, endurance and mindfulness.

Process

A process that has been running successfully for over 35 years. From the very beginning of your project to the final outcome, EP is with you every step of the way.

Proposal

Proposal

Our sales team works with you and our designers to identify the most appropriate solutions from the wide range of products we offer. We review programming wants/needs, space availability, risk assessment, budget guidelines and provide a consultative approach as we work through your facility offerings.

Analysis

Analysis

Our internal design department first produces a simple massing for approval. This is for general layout purposes and ties in to how your facility is being used, traffic flow, safety considerations and more. Once this is approved, custom climbing walls go into a much more detailed design process on what the wall will look like from a front facing and climber prospective along with aesthetic paint colors.

Engineering

Engineering

After an analysis and design have been approved we move into the drafting and engineering process. EP USA complies and exceeds all recommendations from our Climbing Wall Industry Standard Practices. We certify all of our projects with stamped engineered drawings in accordance with your state guidelines. These stamps are provided by a third party to ensure the highest quality is met.

Production

Production

Our production facility is right here under the same roof as our design, drafting and project management teams. This means the highest quality control possible, as your project manager is hands on from design to production and through the organized shipment to your site.

Installation

We take charge of all logistical aspects, from supplying parts to the full installation of your project by our local assembly team. Our project managers are in constant communication with our teams on site.
