After 21 years of using climbing holds weÂ have decided it was time to get stuck in and release its first range of climbing holds.
With all those years ofÂ route setting, stripping andÂ washing holds, we areÂ no stranger to this side of these climbing wall products.
We werent completely happy with the holds that were out there and the choice we had so we decided to make our own. Â As climbing walls have got busier the demands on climbing holds has got a lot tougher and we are still using the same old methods for making climbing holds.
For the last 20+ years we have really only ever had the choice of polyester resin cast holds or in the last couple of years polyurethane holds. Â Both of these materials struggle to keep up with the wear and tear of a busy climbing gym, as traffic increases the holds suddenly get very tired.
A new hybrid material was introduced this year we decided that the time was right to help climbing holds catch up with the intensity that walls and centres have spread. Â This new material Dannomite combines the flexibility and weight reduction of polyurethane with the hard wearing material that outlasts polyester resin holds by 10-15 times. Â Add to this the UV stable colours and stainless steel inserts and you get the highest spec climbing holds ever produced!
With these new hybrid materials we can create extra small holds that donâ€™t break and extra large holds that are not too heavy to lift up to bolt onto the wall.
Get back to Basics with the Rockcity â€˜Basicsâ€™ Climbing Hold range, Â designed with one thing in mind, basic, single use making it ideal for everything from the harder circuits with competition style problems or any level of setting where movement is king, function over form. Built by a climbing wall, by route setters these holds are especially for modern climbing walls and their setters.
Each hold has a Stainless Steel Duel Fixing Insert that will not rust or corrode, unlike most other climbing holds. Made from Dannomite, a new stronger hybrid material that is 10-15 times more durable than all existing Polyester Resin and Polyurethane holds.
This hold will not break under the heavy work load which is now standard in a busy commercial climbing centre / climbing gym. Exceeds European Standard EN 12572-3 and using a new texture using a more complex and open grain that still grips when clogged up with chalk. Softer to the touch, better grip allows longer climbing sessions and is still better for your skin.
Larger holds are hollow so that weight is reduced further.
- Stainless Steel Duel Bolt inserts for increased life and appearance.
- Softer and Ribbed backing for better grip against spinning, especially on textured walls, reducing the need to pin every hold.
- All holds (except smallest footholds) have a screw hole for anti spinning Holds virtually unbreakable and resistant to chipping.
- Holds are colourfast and resistant to U.V.
- Holds resist black rubber staining better than existing materials do.
- Suitable for impact drivers, even the smaller holds.
- Great on uneven â€˜real rockâ€™ featured climbing walls.
- Manufactured in the European Union, reducing the carbon footprint.
