Design recommendations
Width : give it greater importance, for it determines the largest number of participants possible
Configuration : plan inclines with different angles (including roofs and overhangs)
Average height : 3 m (10') to maximum 4.50 m (15')
Number of protruding holds : 10 to 12 / sq. m (10 to 12 /10 sq. ft)
Support : whether the available support is a concrete wall, a breeze block wall, a steel frame, timber columns or other, there is always a possibility to adapt a corresponding climbing wall support. The option of self-standing climbing wall supports is also a solution
Crash area : indoors and outdoors = project specific fall protection mat (like landing mat). Pyramide is member of the standardizing committee for crash mats for climbing walls.
Clearance zone : 4 m (13') in front of the largest overhang
Safety : the separate mats must be linked together to offer a continuous crash area (straps or overall canvas including all mats)

  Pyramide 's recommendation
A very large selection of several holds is essential, do not hesitate to use different brands. If the boulder area is under 40 sq. m (430 sq. ft), plan modular and movable structure units. The ideal surface for indoor boulders is resin textured plywood with minimum 36 'T' nuts per sq. m (10 sq. ft).
