Climbing walls Materials
Abekatten Klatrevægge produces climbing walls and similar facilities primarily using four specific materials. If you have a specific material in mind, we are on hand to help and advise you. Learn more about the materials we use and the reasons why you should choose them.
The surface of many of our climbing walls and installations is produced in climbing boards. Climbing boards are resilient to adverse weather conditions and offer a friction surface which means that the holds do not rotate and climbing shoes grip easily.
Our climbing boards are tested in accordance with EU Norm 12572, including physical testing of tensile strength and tapped holes.
We use two forms of fibreglass. Free Form is our malleable solution, which is suitable for use in small custom-designed climbing installations (dimensions and/or surface design). As an alternative fibreglass solution, we use Form panels, which are less flexible in terms of design but equally strong.
Our fibreglass solutions are designed to meet EU Norm 12572.
Polycarbonate is an almost completely transparent material, which is extremely strong. The material can be used as an alternative to climbing boards and is available in clear and matt colours. The surface is smooth and provides less friction than other materials. We use polycarbonate to create apertures, transparent walls and water-resistant walls.
Installations made in polycarbonate meet EU Norm 12572.
Our Rock Attraction climbing walls and installations are made in concrete. Concrete is sprayed onto an iron skeleton. there is a load-bearing and a moulding layer. The concrete walls have a unique surface, which closely resembles a natural cliff face. Once the holds are moulded into the wall, the users experience more or less how it feels to climb on a real cliff face.
We can make cracks in the walls, which are reinforced and can be used to practise trad climbing techniques including wedging.
Concrete walls can withstand adverse weather conditions and last for years.
