Climbing and Work at Height equipment.
Climbing is an increasingly popular activity, with access and opportunities to climb indoors and outdoors always expanding why not have a look at the range of equipment that can help you enjoy your sport more. Climbing and Industrial work at height activities often require a variety of special equipment specifications and performance. The exact needs for you will depend on lots of factors. Some of these factors may be how new you are to the sport of climbing and the style of climbing you undertake. Many people enjoy starting their experience on an indoor climbing or bouldering wall. You may start with as little as a chalk bag filled with chalk, allowing you to get better grip on the many types and difficulty of holds that you will encounter. As with many activities the more you enjoy and push yourself often means you require more equipment. Most people will invest in their own climbing harness, there are a variety of harness available. The Petzl range is excellent and used by individuals, outdoor centres and in industrial applications, we also keep harnesses from Wild Country and DMM, both excellent climbing brands. Having your own carabiner is useful as well, you can choose a variety of sizes and shapes, most people would have a locking karabiner as well as some clip gate carabiners. The physical weights of the carabiners vary as well as the loading they will withstand, most sport carabiners are made of aluminium to give the best balance between durability, weight and strength. In industrial applications steel carabiners are available where strength and long term durability are perhaps more important than a weight saving. As you advance your expertise and range of climbs we also keep the equipment to take you to the next step including helmets, ropes, slings, quick- draws, harnesses, protection equipment including rocks and camming devices, belay devices, ascenders, descenders, pulleys, chalk and chalk bags, footwear, climbing guides and more.
