Choosing and building your School Climbing Wall or School Traversing Wall can be a bit daunting at first but with our experienced climbers, builders, route setters and office team we can reduce a huge amount of the stress involved with any school project.
Our Experience with building school climbing walls
We have built many climbing walls and many more traversing walls for schools and other Local authorities since Climbing wall solutions began and with that have gained a large amount of knowledge and experience on the different ways in which Local authorities work from the private sector.
This has set us up to able to work directly with schools and teachers ( and sometime parents ) in a way that reduces stress while getting project completed.
We truly understand the battle in which most teachers undertake to get something similar to a traversing wall built
