Nicros-EasyWall™ is a uniquely designed rock climbing wall panel system that is named “EasyWall” because installation is as easy as bolting it to an existing wall. Nicros-EasyWall™ is a light-weight 4’x4’ rock climbing panel system that comes with handholds, mounting hardware, and an installation manual.
There are four different models, each of which can be oriented four different ways, which allows for a great variety of placements. Each panel is about two to three inches thick and also has natural crack features that will line up with the adjoining panels, regardless of how they are oriented. This attention to detail yields a simple, low-cost yet realistic and beautiful climbing wall.
Appearance. There are four different models, each of which can be oriented four different ways, allowing for a great variety of placements. Each panel is about two to three inches thick and has natural crack features that will line up with adjoining panels, regardless of how they are oriented. This attention to detail yields a simple, low-cost yet realistic and beautiful climbing wall.
Versatility. Nicros-EasyWall™ is a low-cost, easy-to-install system that takes up very little space. Many schools use this product to create bouldering and traversing walls, but it’s also used in recreation centers, rehabilitation centers, health clubs, and full scale climbing gyms. Nicros-EasyWall™ panels can easily be cut or drilled to customize installations. Standard woodworking tools can be used to trim a panel to fit, or to cut around any existing electrical outlets, switches, etc. Now, rock climbing can be offered at virtually any facility using this wall system.
Feel. The surface of Nicros-EasyWall™panels is specifically designed to be a climbable surface. The texture is contoured enough that a climber can hang onto the micro-features or smear against the panel itself. However, it is not an abrasive, skin-shredding texture to the climber who slips off while climbing. The cracks are designed to feel realistic, but most are for aesthetics rather than usable as actual climbing features.
Durability. Nicros-EasyWall™panels have been designed to take rigorous use, whether inside a commercial climbing facility or outside at a local playground.
Design. There are four different panel designs and each is usable in four different orientations. The features on each panel were designed to be of a particular grade (5.9 for example) if oriented in a particular direction. If the panel is oriented 90 degrees, it becomes a 5.10 featured or 5.11 featured panel. If placing a series of panels for use on a full-height climbing wall, “naturals” routes of various difficulties can be created – before handholds are even added to the wall!
Handholds. Each panel comes with five handholds to get you started. The holds generally come in a combination of “kid-friendly” colors such as red, blue, green, yellow, or orange. If you have a specific color combination you are looking for or want your holds to blend in with the background wall panel color, holds can be ordered in any custom color. Check out the Nicros Handhold Store for our complete line of handhold products.
Installation involves mounting Nicros-EasyWall™ panels to an existing wall such as cinder/concrete block or other suitable substrate. Nicros suggests that you consider consulting a licensed structural engineer to ensure correct and safe attachment of the panels to your building. Generally we estimate installation at a rate of two panels per person per hour. That means, in less than five hours, a ten panel bouldering wall could be installed by one person! While installation is easy, it’s very important that it’s done correctly.
The cost for Nicros to install the average Nicros-EasyWall™ climbing wall is $49 per panel, plus engineering, travel and expenses. If you’re unsure or you lack the expertise, please seek professional assistance.
