CUSTOM CLIMBING WALL SYSTEM

At Rockwerx, our goal is to provide superior quality products to meet the specific needs of our clients. Our Custom Climbing Wall System (Geodesic Design) is the premier wall in the industry. If you want more flexible route setting options, unmatched durability and a great looking, superior and multiple climbing surfaces on your wall, our custom wall system is what you’re looking for. We like to say that if you can imagine it, we can build it. Each project is custom designed in cooperation with each client.

So what is Geodesic design? Geodesic describes the geometry of curved surfaces, and what makes our walls different than most is that though we start with geometric shapes, our mesh seaming and texture process creates a more fluid, unified look and feel. Once a design is finalized, geometrically shaped steel panels are fabricated and installed much like a 3D jigsaw puzzle. These sections are placed on a superstructure independently engineered for each project. Each section connects to unify the total design. Simple triangles, rectangles, and trapezoidal shapes are transformed into dramatic arches, caves, arêtes, dihedrals, spires, cracks and stalactites. Rather than create a more formulaic paneled look, our substantive concrete texture forms more rounded edges and an aesthetically seamless design.

To go a step further than a custom look, we offer our customers a custom feel by being the only manufacturer to put a concrete rock like (GYM ROCK) texture next to an “aggregate based texture” (GYM ROCK LITE) next to each other on the same wall.  This allows for limitless route setting options and a more diverse climbing environment.
