ARC Walls

Arc walls led us to and secured our place as industry experts. The exclusive three-layer ARC system exhibits a beautiful aesthetic with curves, sweeping lines, and cathedral-like impact, all paired with incredible durability. This style of indoor climbing wall design will separate you from the competition and make your customers excited to send new routes as soon as they’re set. ARC walls represent the future of climbing gym design. Each wall comes with an inherently unique design and are engineered to either meet or exceed CWA standards.

ARC Details
    • Allows for climbing to occur uninterrupted by abrupt angle changes ensuring problems flow unhindered by wall features.
    • Provides a unique hardwood aesthetics that is unparalleled by other wall manufacturers.
    • Features a multi-layered construction technique to deliver exceptional rigidity and durability as well as seamless climbing surfaces.
    • Provides limitless wood aesthetic options using bright Baltic Birch hardwood as the base and exotic hardwoods for details and accents.
    • Offers textures that are scuff resistant, easily cleaned, durable, and available in various grip levels to prevent spinning holds while aiding climbers up the wall.
    • Textures that are heavily scuff resistant, easily cleaned, durable and available in various grip levels to prevent spinning holds while aiding climbers up the wall
    • Allows for custom staining or paint coatings that are ultra-resistant to smears, wear, cracking, and delamination are available.
    • Features T-nut density is fully customizable; our standard density is three t-nuts per sq. ft.
    • Provides stainless steel bands that protect walls and ropes at contact points.
    • Ensures easy maintenance to keep the walls fresh at every re-set.
    • Includes a five-year warranty on wall and surface finish.
  • Our welded and bolted structural steel frame is the backbone of our climbing walls. Engineering ensures that every inch will meet or exceed CWA industry standards, so you feel confident knowing safety is a priority. The primary components include custom-rolled iron tubes and bars that are specifically fit to your facility. Ultimately, the custom nature of our walls improves project flexibility onsite in a way that no other competitor can provide.

  • We use three layers of sheeting material to create the climbing surface, forming a wall thickness of 1.25”. This method allows for curved design elements and creates a stiff and durable substrate, which won’t flex under use. The Vertical Solutions multi-layer construction method offers seam rigidity, increased t-nut strength, and overall durability you can’t achieve with dual-layer systems offered by competitors.

    Our multiple layer system serves to reinforce and better protect the structural integrity of the wall from screw holes left by setters and typical daily use. A key component of our multi-layer system is the final coating, which is epoxy-based as opposed to the concrete or acrylic coatings our competitors use. When compromised, concrete and acrylic coated walls have screw holes that expand, propagate cracks, and create wall debris. With a multi-layer system that has an epoxy coating, after the original screw hole is made, the walls will sustain no further damage to critical infrastructure components. The epoxy doesn't allow cracks to form, nor does it flake away as a textured acrylic or concrete surface would.

  • Our wooden walls are noticeable and have an undeniable aesthetic. Beyond each facility's unique design and build, the walls look flawless. We attribute this, at least in part, to the material. We selected wood for its ability to create a warm and inviting environment while maintaining structural performance. When working solely with wood, you can't get away with a sloppy cover-up job using auxiliary textures and paint. Ultimately, how much of the wood's innate personality you display is up to you. You can choose to exhibit all its natural beauty and impact or soften it to match your gym branding by integrating unique stains or paints.


MLM: Multi-Layer Modular Walls

Our Multi-Layer Modular geometric panels are a simple and economical way of producing climbing walls while ensuring each space is inviting, aesthetically pleasing, and built-to-last. Many contractors use a basic one-layer design to over-emphasis cost-efficiency; however, Vertical Solutions incorporates two layers of sheeting in the system to ensure a long-lasting, durable 1” thick wall. Once assembled on-site, the same high-end stains, textures, and finishes we use with our premium ARC wall systems are available for customization.

This dual layer creates a rigid and truly seamless final product.

  • Similar to the ARC wall systems, we offer many options to customize your gym’s walls, including color finishes, hardwoods, and textures. Keep it ultra-clean with our Baltic Birch veneer, add custom colors with paint to match your gym brand, or use different stains for hardwood details. As with all Vertical Solutions projects, each design is unique, distinguishable, and perfectly tailored to suit your climbing gym’s personality.


SLM: Single Layer Modular Walls

Single Layer Modular walls are purposely designed and manufactured to optimize value and reduce installation times. The least expensive of our climbing wall options, the SLM doesn’t leave anything on the table in terms of strength, quality, or appearance.

Surface Finishes

Working with our design team to choose the wall textures, colors and finishes you want couldn't be any easier. We offer a wide variety of options for both ARC and MLM applications so you can tailor your walls to your priorities, be it utilizing the wall to solve a problem with high-friction grit additive, providing fewer consequences when falling and brushing the wall with a smooth finish or wanting a smear-resistant coating that keeps walls at their cleanest for as long as possible. This is something exclusive to Vertical Solutions, and all of our surface options offer the following benefits:

  • Heavily scuff-resistant: Our walls are incredibly difficult to scuff, which reduces the amount of time your team will spend cleaning because...
  • Easily cleaned: If you do manage to scuff them, they are the only walls on the market that are easily cleaned with one swipe of the hand.
  • Grippy: We've always had a variety of coatings, but now we've introduced different grit compositions to produce any desired grip level.
  • Restraining: All of our textured coatings keep large holds and volumes from spinning even under the most extreme usage environments.
  • Attractive: Most of our textures are clear to show off the gorgeous hardwood walls, but we can easily stain or paint to match your brand.
  • Durable: Beyond our 5-year warranty on workmanship, our surface coatings themselves carry a full 2-year warranty for peace of mind.
  • Concealing: Set screw holes on our multi-layer wooden walls do not induce surface or coating cracks, flakes or continued propagation of either as experienced on competitor's walls.

Case Study: Climbing Wall Renovation with Demo, Design, Fabrication & Installation

Brooklyn Boulders' original location, which opened in 2009, featured home-grown designs and owner-built climbing walls. Since those early days, they have expanded to multiple modern-built facilities with climbing walls designed and manufactured by Vertical Solutions. So when it came time to revamp and renovate over 5000 sq.ft. of rope climbing walls in their original location, they had some non-negotiable requirements that had to be met, and Vertical Solutions was up to the task.

Read the full Case Study by clicking on the link below. It details precisely what can be accomplished when you need to replace climbing walls in your gym, and how fast it can be completed.

Case Study: Brooklyn Boulders Renovations


  • Lance Pinn
    Brooklyn Boulders

    From the inception of Brooklyn Boulders we have always thought bigger than our competitors. Our business model differs from the standard climbing gym offering, and we needed to partner with a team that understood our large, ambitious vision, and could adapt to the challenges presented by working in the most densely populated urban environments out there. We operate multiple gyms in top-10 DMAs, where it’s easy to become background noise, lose the public’s  attention, and generally grow stale. So it was critical that we leveraged our wall builder to always design and deliver something unique to our brand, because our customers expect high-end experiences and environments. Vertical Solutions is the only company that had the meticulous attention to detail, and unwavering dedication to craftsmanship to pull it off, in every city.

  • Joe Ortega
    Birmingham Boulders

    When shopping the market for our our newest facility, Birmingham Boulders, it became clear that we would be working with Vertical Solutions again for our second facility, and we couldn't be happier. During construction the VS crew worked tirelessly to make sure every deadline was met, every concern was addressed, and the end product matched our vision. Vertical Solutions provides a climbing wall product that no other company comes close to in innovation, or design. We are excited to have worked with the VS team on First Avenue Rocks and Birmingham Boulders. We look forward to working with them on our future projects as well.

  • Jason Mullins
    The Bloc

    We already owned a rope climbing facility in our city when we decided to pursue a new bouldering gym for our community. We wanted to keep the culture and vibe similar between the two locations, while also giving our customers something completely new they have never seen before; something they could get stoked on. So we took a look around at who was really standing out from the crowd, and Vertical Solutions' body of work really impressed us. They built our bouldering facility and consulted with us on a number of different things in order to keep our customers interested and safe. It could not have worked out any better. I would recommend using them without hesitation based on my experience.
