Traversing Wall

The traversing wall from ESP features wooden panels adorned with strong handgrips. Children are met with the challenge of making their way across the wall using the hand and foot grips, without touching the floor.

Our wooden Traversing Wall provides the ideal solution for schools that either lack or have unsuitable wall space that want to offer their young people an opportunity to practice their traversing skills. It does not require a safety surface as the bottom grips are placed within 0.6m from the ground. Extra panels can be added if you would like to extend the challenge.
