CLIMBING WALLS & CHALLENGE COURSES
LedgeWall panels from Brewer’s Ledge are sculpted, prefinished climbing panels that can create cost-effective climbing or traversing walls in a number of different ways. Applied directly to walls, they provide attractive traversing (sideways climbing) areas in gymnasiums and play areas. With structural framing, larger walls can be created. Pre-framed LedgeWall Modules are designed to bolt together to create exciting bouldering installations such as islands and racquetball-court conversions. With 54 pre-installed threaded inserts in each panel, LedgeWall offers unlimited potential for route-setting and new challenges. LedgeWall panels are made of high-quality double-sided MDO exterior-grade plywood for indoor and outdoor use.

Racquets to Rocks
While racquetball participation rates declined 9 percent in 2000, sport climbing grew 27 percent. This offers fitness club owners a new revenue stream without the need to expand their facility. In a partnership with Pyramide Climbing Wall System, W.A. Schmidt offers a complete sports climbing gym within an existing racquetball court. With Pyramide’s Modular Sport Climbing Wall system, the panels can be rotated and swapped to create unlimited climbing patterns. The climbing walls are self-supporting, allowing them to be removed and relocated. The steel frame won’t damage the court’s walls or floor, and installation requires no heavy equipment or welding.

Impressions of Granite
Red Rock climbing panels offer state-of-the-art modular panel system construction. The polyurethane plastic molded panels are crafted from natural granite impressions, creating a realistic look. An extruded T-6061 aluminum frame is designed into the body of each panel, eliminating the need for elaborate steel structural framing behind the climbing wall. The walls require minimal carpentry sub-framing for the purpose of wall attachment and provide a seamless climbing surface with aggressive "relief." Each 4-foot-by-4-foot panel creates 22 to 25 square feet of actual climbing surface. The walls take up minimal floor space and provide portability, allowing for easy repair or relocation.
