Climbing walls let youngsters scramble horizontally over simulated boulders
WingWall offers the movements and choices of actual rock climbing to teach balance and build strength. Ideal for playgrounds or physical education programs. Each WingWall measures 6 12 ft. tall and 8 ft. wide, providing a climbing surface on both sides. Core structure consists of heavy-duty galvanized steel, while surface and top are made of rotationally molded, UV-stabilized polyethylene. Every WingWall has two parts: a base section in the ground and a pre-assembled climbing wall that accommodates four to six climbers per wing. Kids climb through and around the structure, using movable holds for their hands and feet. Heavy-duty hand rings, made of forged aluminum, allow movement from one wing to the next, creating a natural maze that can be explored for hours. Although each wall is mounted on a central pole and clamped into position, playground staff can change the climbing layout at any time by unlocking and reorienting the wings. Galvanized-steel locking plates allow secure repositioning to change configuration and revitalize the climbing experience. Each WingWall contains 32 LedgeLoc holds, by which a locking pin engages a socket to prevent the holds from spinning. Multiple sockets permit reorientation of holds without compromising safety.
