Testing of the climbing wall is not compulsory but is strongly advised by the European standart. When tested in accordance to Annex F of EN 12572-1:2007, after settling under the load there shall be no breaking, tearing or destruction of the elements after testing.
These tests shall be used as a verification of good installation practice and shall not in any case replace the calculations, maintenance programme, inspection or other justification procedure. There is no requirement for future retesting of the climbing wall, after the first installation of the wall.
The first three protection points and the highest protection point of each climbing route are tested by applying force by at least 10 seconds. The test load is 8 kN.
In addition to individual protection points, all individual or collective top rope protection points, as well as any anchors for a stance shall be tested with an 8 kN load. This is valid for all the points designed to pass the rope through.
Collective top rope protection points undergo tests at the points of fixation, in the middle of each span and at the point where the load makes the greatest bending moment.
Maximum angle for the direction of the forces
