needs and receive detailed information regarding the
products we have available.

further discussion determines the type of rock climbing wall
that is required and the potential location of the rock climbing
wall, and its indoor or outdoor status.
are considered and initial, broad ideas are formulated.
Step 3 - A site visit is the next stage and is critical for determining
wall dimensions, nature of the existing structure, obtaining
site drawings and photographs and importantly meeting the
client face to face. More detailed discussion determines the
critical features the client requires for their rock climbing
Step 4 - An exact scale model of the proposed wall will be constructed so that the client need not rely solely on drawings to understand the concepts. This acts as a tool for design control as the engineering is based entirely on the model and this is reflected in the final product
5 - A quote acceptance form or contracts are produced for the
project and signed with the client. Deposit fee is received
by Flashpoint Sports as set out in the payment schedule.
Step 6 - Fine-tuning of the design takes place to enable commencement
of the construction and finally the installation stage. During
this stage the client is informed of all developments and
is encouraged to make regular visits to the site up to the
completion of the project.
Complete Project Management
This service encompasses every aspect of your rock climbing wall project
from design right through to the staff training on your own climbing wall manufactured and installed by Flashpoint Sports.
With 14 years experience and in excess of 40 rock climbing wall projects, we have the complete know-how to build your climbing wall.
All Flashpoint Sports’ walls are designed to meet or exceed international standards;
• EN 12572
• Climbing Wall Industry Group Standards - U.S.A
• All State building regulations and wind load specifications.
Through many years of building climbing walls we have developed structural and panel systems that are simple to maintain, cost effective and certified to the above standards.
Certification and Safety Management
Every 12 months all rock climbing wall structures are required to have a safety audit, not only for insurance purposes but also for your own peace of mind.
With the advent of international standards and issues with occupational health and safety it is imperative that all rock climbing walls are certified or built to the standards for rock climbing walls, world wide.
At a flat rate, plus travel expenses ( at cost ) Flashpoint Sports will visit your rock climbing wall and comprehensively audit your wall for safety and structural issues. Recommendations will be made and certification will be issued upon completion of any work that may be required.
As the sport of rock climbing becomes more popular many walls are being incorporated into the planning stage of new projects. If this is the case, it is important to design the climbing wall to suit the structure that is being built, or incorporate into the building design a structure that will facilitate the rock climbing wall. Conversely if you have an existing building in which you would like to install a climbing wall and you need guidance and costings, then Flashpoint Sports can help.
Rock Climbing Hardware Supply
Our primary concern at Flashpoint Sports is the safety of the rock climbing wall and the climber. If you require the safety equipment that is necessary to achieve this, we can supply the gear at very competitive rates. As part of a wall project we will install the equipment and give guidance as to its correct use and maintenance.
All floor and top anchors are designed and engineered to exceed EN12572 and C.W.I.G. standards. The floor anchors are recessed into the safety flooring to eliminate the risk of injury through tripping.
Flashpoint Sports construction sites are managed by a highly trained and dedicated team of specialist workers conversant with the specific systems and techniques devised for the construction of our unique climbing walls. Each climbing wall project bears the signature of these workers and is the guarantee of lasting quality.
Every aspect of the project is engineered to meet EN 12572 and CWIG standards. Fibre Rock panels are randomly subjected to drop tests as specified by C.E.N standards. Any other aspect of the project that is not specified in the climbing wall standards is designed to meet or exceed current Australian building standards.
