Climbing Gyms

The majority of our projects are climbing gyms and we love it! It is no surprise that designing for a climbing gym is our favorite, as it gives us most design freedom and the possibility of a holistic approach to the whole venue from start to finish. We’ve specialized in offering the whole concept, incorporating different areas (boulders and top-rope/lead climbing, kid’s area) and different styles (most of our customers prefer combining Geome3x with 3D curves). We work intensively with the gym owner to ensure our walls fit in with their vision for the space. We will also build a particular area in a climbing gym or renew an existing wall. Again we make sure it meets the owner's expectations. Our portfolio consists of some of the best walls worldwide, so we'll let the completed projects speak for themselves. Check out some of our latest projects below.

1.1 Lead and Top rope walls

1.2 Boulder walls

1.3 Speed competition walls

Speed climbing is one of the most spectacular disciplines in climbing – every move is precise while climbers demonstrate incredible speed and endurance.

Many gyms now want to have a speed wall in their facility. It’s not necessary to have a large group of professional climbers to make good use of the wall as many climbers like to train on it and test their speed and endurance.

To have the complete set-up, you cab purchase speed holds from HRT and timers from Safety Engineering.

1.4 Deep Water Solo walls - Getting more and more popular every year, this is a discipline that emerged from the coast of Mallorca and became popular thanks to our man, Chris Sharma. Our collaboration with him and the guys from Momentum created the most spectacular annual event in the climbing industry - the Psicocomp - which is also the perfect showcase of our work for the design and manufacture of a great DWS wall.

Climbing Gym Projects

Schools and Universities

One of the many reasons climbing has been getting lots of attention in the last few decades, is the training it provides. Climbing is a very complex sport that not only strengthens every muscle in our body but also builds focus and develops flexibility.

That is why schools and universities now choose to include climbing within their curriculum. It unites physical training with team building experience, mind consciousness and decision making.

Our understanding of budget, safety constraints, as well as our flexibility in design and manufacture to achieve the best value for money possible, make us the preferred contractor for many schools and universities.

Competition Walls

Walltopia Lead and Bouldering Competition Walls: No matter whether we design and produce a wall for a long-term use in a gym or for a one-time event such as comp - we put the same amount of passion, effort and skill to deliver the best product. A good example is The Eye Wall - designed for the Prometheus Mammut Bouldering Comp in Salt Lake City, UT, 2009, it is now part of Climb so iLL in St. Louis, MO. Whether a part of the world championship or a custom privately organized event, our crew is ready to make a wall that suits your needs.

FECs

Designing climbing walls for FECs requires not only a comprehensive awareness of its overall thematic concept, but also a deep understanding of its business model and visitor statistics. In most cases the FEC already has a direction for development and the need of a climbing wall comes either because there is some free space or because the center is undergoing renovation.

This is where our experienced team of architects and designers step in so that our proposal fits perfectly the requirements of the FEC.

At the beginning we worked mostly on rather small scale projects as climbing was rarely a primary experience. Today, though, we have a whole brand dedicated mostly to FECs - Fun Walls.

Fun Walls are interactive challenges that revolutionized the way people think of climbing while combining physical activities and entertainment. The elements target different age groups and are suitable for several skill levels. What’s particularly attractive to the FEC is the low operation cost along with minimum safety issues.

Fun Walls are also a great way to introduce kids to climbing and therefore many gyms already incorporate this concept - for instance SenderOne, Momentum Lehi

Shopping Centers

In response to online shopping, malls are starting to change, turning from just shopping to meeting places and providing experiences that cannot be purchased from the comfort of your sofa. Climbing, high ropes courses and other activities that combine fun, physical activity and provide quality time spent with the family, can offer this.

Our first climbing wall in a shopping center was built in 2010 at Galleria Mall Plovdiv, Bulgaria, and since then we are constantly expanding our efforts to bring climbing into the mall.

So far we have installed climbing walls in atriums, we have a whole boulder gym in a mall right above the already-compulsory cinema and a concept that unites climbing with high-ropes courses.

Our team of experienced architects and consultants will discuss every angle of the project and carefully design the best proposal for the shopping center.

Military Walls

The Military frequently require specialist climbing skills to achieve operational success. Some specialist forces need to develop and maintain these climbing skills as an essential individual and collective requirement. This is most efficiently achieved on specialist facilities.

Walltopia’s first military training facility was launched in 2005 – a climbing tower made of weather-resistant panels for a law enforcement academy in Singapore. Today Walltopia provides a wide variety of military training facilities in terms of climbing structures, vertical features and obstacles.

We partner with military academies, police and fire departments and mountain rescue teams. The facilities are designed to the end users’ requirements, so that they can achieve the most realistic, safe and cost effective mission focused training. Climbing and high ropes courses are also proven to provide non-specialist military users with transferrable skills that have a direct impact such as, but not limited to:

  • Fitness (strength, power, endurance and flexibility)
  • Balance and coordination
  • Use of technical equipment
  • Response and management of fear of height
  • Team work
  • Trust and confidence in team members
  • Safe operation and working at height

 

Walltopia’s climbing and ropes course based training facilities are suitable for both individual and group training

Sport & Recreational

Climbing is an activity inspired by nature and many parks and outdoor recreational areas now have climbing areas. For example, our natural looking boulders, made using Rocktopia panels, can be installed with or without holds.

We are a huge fan of putting climbing walls and boulders outside as they send an important message - get active, enjoy the outdoors. As a company, we are keen supporters of active lifestyles and having fun participating rather than just watching.

In an effort to bring a modern facility to Kelowna, Chris brought in Walltopia (one of the world's premier wall companies) to design and build the walls. The angles are amazing, the quality is terrific and the height leaves nothing to be desired. Simply put, these walls have never been seen in Kelowna (or anywhere in the Okanagan) for that matter and they will up the indoor game for sure. Panels were going up while we were in yesterday and already look beauty!"

You did an admirable job in implementing our conceptual ideas for the climbing walls for the St. Johann sport club and further enriched the design with your own ideas. (for example, the adjustable outdoor walls and the mobile boulder for indoor and outdoor use). You have responded to our questions and requests in a prompt and competent manner. Your installation team completed the work accurately and on time. The acceptance procedure by TÜV was also carried out with no problems. We are very satisfied with your performance and price and would work together with you and your team anytime.The Boulder Gym in St. Johann is a great success and has been exceptionally well received."

In close cooperation with the OeAV association, the municipality of Perchtoldsdorf and Walltopia, the manufacturer and supplier of the climbing walls, we were able to bring the project of AV-Kletterzentrums Südwand to fruition in 2010. Already in the initial project phases, Walltopia had proven itself to be a competent and cooperative partner with an outstanding product catalog. They won the contract for the completion of the climbing center by submitting the best offer. During the installation of the climbing walls, any and all difficulties which arose were quickly and efficiently solved to our mutual satisfaction. Walltopia showed above all a great commitment to solving any problems to the benefit of the customer."

From our first contact with Walltopia we were convinced of their competence and professionalism. Our expectations were very high. We wanted to open the best climbing gym in the Rhein-Main-area and we had precise ideas about the design of the walls. The design department was able to meet 100% of our expectations and we were very impressed by the initial design concept. The cooperation with the experts from Sofia went absolutely smoothly. Even the tightest deadline was met. Each stage of the project was completed to our full satisfaction. We want to thank the team and everyone who was involved with our project for their unconditional support and commitment.
