Climbing Wall Inspections

 

To help ensure the safety of all climbers, visitors, and staff, every climbing wall, structure, and facility should undergo regular inspections by knowledgeable, experienced, trained, and qualified professionals as outlined in the Climbing Wall Association’s publication ‘Specification for the Structural Inspection of Artificial Climbing Structures’. Nicros Inspectors have an extensive background in design, engineering, construction, and operation of the structural components, protection anchors, safety equipment, and climbing operations. They systematically review the various aspects of the climbing structure, landing surface, maintenance, and operations to provide a thorough examination and offer helpful recommendations to provide a safer experience for everyone involved.

The CWA’s ‘Specification for the Structural Inspection of Artificial Climbing Structures’ recommends inspections on newly constructed Artificial Climbing Structures and regularly after that according to manufacturer specifications, not to exceed 24 months for outdoor locations or 48 months for indoor locations. (Section 5.3-5.4 of the publication)

OPERATIONS

A typical inspection will include a review of all operation manuals, staff training, and maintenance documentation to ensure that accepted standards, policies, and procedures are in place.

STRUCTURAL INSPECTION

Climbing Wall Inspection shall include a visual inspection of all protection anchors, building connections, and fracture-critical members of the support structure, as well as the structural integrity of the climbing surface.

LANDING SURFACE

Inspection shall include a cursory review of the climbing wall landing surfaces to identify any concerns that should be addressed to ensure the safety of all climbing wall patrons.

AUTO BELAYS

All automatic belay devices, components, and procedures shall be inspected to ensure devices are free from defects, excessive wear, or obvious signs of damage. Climbing Wall inspection will also verify that all units are being used properly and in accordance with manufacturer specifications.

GEAR

All gear, which includes but is not limited to harnesses, belay devices, carabiners, helmets, ropes, and shoes shall be visually inspected to look for wear, irregularities, damage, cracks, tears, faded or frayed material, torn seams, and compromised safety stitching.
