 1、The service life of climbing wall

The normal service life of the climbing wall is around 8 years. The specific time is determined by the construction material of the climbing wall, the temperature, humidity and frequency of use and other conditions.


 Most of the indoor climbing walls are made of 3/4 inch plywood and 3/4 inch OSB, which is strong and durable. Commercial stadiums that look like real stone often use the OSB because it is covered with a plaster-like covering. Outdoor climbing walls have a variety of options. Trex does not decay or deteriorate due to bad weather or insects, which does not crack and has excellent traction even in wet conditions. And pressure-treated wood is the best defense against nature. Cedar trees are incredibly resistant to decay, and insects don't like cedar trees. Its bacterial and fungal resistance as well as the fact that the cedar is 80% of the oak's strength makes it an ideal wood for construction. For health reasons, this is an ideal choice of home climbing wall for fragile young children.
