Kersplash Pool Climbing Walls are modular and can be made to fit any space and deck configuration. The 4′ panels attach to a stainless-steel frame allowing you to customize the height and width of the wall to meet your facility’s needs. The amount of deck space your facility has will determine the number of panels and the height of the wall.

Kersplash is well suited for both indoor or outdoor use, made of high impact, double UV protected Polycarbonate panels. Rated for 115 mph sustained winds, the single piece construction contains far fewer points for possible failures. Kersplash Crystal Clear compliments any aquatic center and offers visibility to areas behind the climbing wall. The bright and visible red, yellow, and orange Groperz Hand Holds are specially designed for maximum slip-resistance.

Safety is a key priority in all pool climbing wall applications

With your shipment, you will receive the installation instructions, which cover recommended safety measures for the installation, proper maintenance, and use of the equipment. To comply with most state and local guidelines Kersplash requires a footprint of 35″ pool deck space, 4′ of clearance behind the wall, 5′ of space on either side of the wall, and a 10′ drop zone in the water. However, before installing your Kersplash Pool Climbing Wall, it’s important to confirm your local and state codes as they can vary.

It is also imperative that the swimming pool depth matches the requirements for the height of the wall. Pool depth requirements for play equipment can vary by state, but the Kersplash installation manual lists the standard recommendations for depth.

Kersplash Pool Climbing Wall Installation

Kersplash climbing walls begin 3′ below the deck to allow climbers to begin their climb in the water for safety and ease. The lower frame of the climbing wall is anchored onto the pool deck with two Hilti Kwik bolts. When fitting the wall to the deck, there must be no less than 1″, and no more than 4″, between the frame and the inner pool wall. Anchoring should be done by an installer who has experience using the Hilti Kwik bolts and anchoring system.

Once your climbing wall is completely installed, the fun can begin. The amount of regular use your climbing wall receives will determine how frequently maintenance is required, though it is recommended that the wall is cleaned at least once a month. Pressure washers and chlorinated cleaners are not recommended for the Kersplash Crystal Clear. Instead, the wall can be cleaned with gentle soap and water, Windex, or other glass cleaners and hosed off.
