CLIMBING WALLS

Nicrolite™

nicros-climbing-wall-nicrolite-canyon-ranch-800x600-1
Nicrolite™ is constructed using lighter weight fiberglass panels which have been molded from real rock features to create one of the most realistic looking climbing walls on the market.

Nicrolite™ is the best “real rock” product for your time-sensitive project.  It can be installed virtually anywhere indoors or outdoors.  The climbing wall surface is made of a lighter weight fiberglass as compared to the standard GFRC products typically used. This enables Nicrolite™ to be used in applications that may have flooring weight restrictions, such as second floor mezzanines. Nicrolite™ can also be custom-designed to fit operational needs or installation parameters desired for your particular project.

Appearance. Visually stunning, Nicrolite™  climbing wall systems allow for limitless design opportunities.  Nicrolite™ castings are molded from real rock.  This “real rock” look, along with our special texture, gives Nicrolite™ projects the best look and feel in the industry.

Versatility. The use of lighter weight fiberglass enables Nicrolite™ to be used in applications that may have flooring weight restrictions, such as second floor mezzanines. Since Nicrolite™ is delivered in a nearly finished state, on-site installation time is drastically reduced which allows for this product to be installed around finished surfaces without creating the debris associated with most construction sites.

Feel. Nicrolite™ is made from a special fiberglass mixture that gives the product a “real rock” look and texture.  All Nicrolite™ panels are molded from real rock so it perfectly reproduces the shapes only found in nature.

Durability. Nicrolite™  can be installed virtually anywhere indoors or outdoors.  The climbing wall surface is made of a lighter weight fiberglass that can withstand the harshest elements.

Design. Nicrolite™ can be configured into just about any design conceivable. Designs can include cracks, overhanging areas, dihedrals, arêtes, roofs, vertical sections, and any other climbing formations.

Handholds. Nicrolite climbing wall systems are designed to accept modular bolt-on handholds for greater versatility in route-setting. Check out the Nicros Handhold Store for our complete line of handhold products.

The first step in the process is the design phase. Depending on the project, this is either rendered as simple plan views and cross-sectional drawings or CAD renditions. Our design team works with you to create a wall that’s both visually striking and highly functional.

Once a design is chosen, the engineering begins. All Nicros climbing wall designs are engineered to meet or exceed industry standards (CWA General Specification for the Design and Engineering of Artificial Climbing Structures, First Edition).

Upon completion of the engineering, a steel frame is erected and the the Nicrolite™ climbing wall components are installed.  The Nicrolite™ climbing wall components are pre-built and delivered to the job site in a nearly finished state resulting in on-site installation time that is drastically reduced.   These prefabricated components also allow for this product to be installed around finished surfaces without creating the debris associated with most construction sites.

The climbing surface of each component is constructed using highly durable fiberglass panels which have been molded from real rock features to create one of the most realistic looking climbing walls on the market.

Finally, the protection anchors and handholds are installed and the landing surface added. After a final inspection, your wall is ready for use.
