The Complete Service - Imagine, Design, Build, Maintain, Inspect.
We provide climbing wall and ropes course design, construction, inspection, maintenance and site specific training.

Climbing Walls
The construction of artificial climbing walls is available indoors or outdoors and to EN12572 (Artificial Climbing Structures). Your facility can be designed to provide for serious users in mind or recreational facilities e.g. sports hall or play area. Your artificial climbing area can provide a healthy income if opened to outside users.

The walls can vary in size, height and use from bouldering walls in playground areas to full size colour routed walls with abseil platforms, overhangs, slabs, belay stations, chimney, crack or arete features. As well as being a sports facility the climbing wall is a proven teaching implement.


Climbing provides a rich environment to develop motor skills to climbing as an activity with the responsibility of helping one another when roped to realise each person's goals. The possibilities are endless...

Ropes Courses and Zip Tours
An alternative or excellent addition to the climbing wall is the High Ropes Course, Rope Activity Platform or Rope Activity Tower. This allows all rope activities; Abseiling, SRT, Caving Ladder, Climbing Routes to be run from a platform in a suitable location such as trees, poles or a purpose built tower. Tyrolean Traverse, Heebie Jeebie, The Vines, Burma Bridge, Monkey Traverse, Postmans Walk and more can be used to link one RAP or RAT to one another. All constructed to EN15567 (Ropes Courses) or ANSI PRCA (Challenge Courses and Ziplines) standards.

Using utility poles or trees the platforms or tower allows centres and schools without the venue for a climbing wall to enjoy the activities that are associated with an artificial climbing structure. As a group activity RAPs or Towers help develop co-operation, self-sufficiency, interaction and respect for others. Those wishing to create a new adventure sport discipline on site can look at the almost infinite designs and "Challenge By Choice"...
