Transform an ordinary outdoor wall into a climbing wall! This ingenious product is ideal for schools that do not have the space for a climbing wall - or just want to add interest to an ordinary wall! This kit provides 100 brightly coloured climbing holds, in different shapes and textures. This set allows placement of holds wherever you chose, allowing you to create your own routes for children to follow along the wall! Holds are rubber-backed to ensure excellent grip to any masonry surface. Holds are repositionable allowing you to change the design of your wall easily with the free tool provided! Children will have lots of fun with this new playground activity, which also provides an excellent fitness activity - a low impact workout which tones the whole body! The Traverse wall also allows children to practice their 'bouldering' skills - climbing from side to side rather than just up and down. Suitable for all ages and abilities, climbing is also ideal for children with special needs as it increases concentration, focus and planning as well as visual and sensory perception. Covers an area up to 12 metres, depending on design. Recommended heights for holds - footholds below 40cm, handholds below 2.1 metres - ensuring that no safety surfacing is required. Low maintenance, with a fantastic 6 year guarantee!
This is the essential resource to make fantastic use of limited outside space. It will help to vastly improve your school's sports provision and turns any area into a quality space for PE and sporting activities.
Important health and social benefits can be gained from using climbing walls. Benefits of climbing: good cardiovascular exercise, it will help develop strength in all muscle groups giving a 'total body workout', learn about the importance of stamina, allow children to assess and take risk, allow them to set increasingly more difficult challenges, aid both fine and gross motor skill development as well as psychological development and boosting performance in other sports. Climbing works every part of your body. It develops lean, endurance muscles, strengthens the core, which in turn, reduces the likelihood of incurring sports-related injury. Climbing strengthens hands, forearms, biceps, shoulders, neck, upper back, lats, lower back, abs, glutes, thighs and calves - your whole body benefits! The development of primary and secondary muscles though climbing also trains the body for increased performance in all sports. For example, Rugby and Racket / Bat sports require hand strength and agility, whilst football, running and cycling require upper body and core strength, all of which are improved through climbing.
It is a common misconception that climbing requires well developed upper body strength, when in fact, all that is required is technique, balance and leg strength. This means that boys and girls perform equally well, and that climbing is an activity suitable for all ages and abilities. Climbing also benefits children with special needs, as it increases perception, hand-eye coordination and balance. Climbing is a very 'tactile' activity, involving varied feel, texture, and shape, and the brightly coloured holds help to encourage visual and sensory stimulation.
Climbing is a fantastic way for children to have fun and release energy! It encourages goal setting as they seek more challenging routes across the climbing wall, as well as determination and concentration to get them there. Planning and strategy are developed, as well as risk-taking, increasing their confidence as they go. The opportunity for social interaction, communication and encouragement is also present, as climbing is a group activity.
