BS EN 12572:2017 recommends an independent safety inspection is carried out on all artificial climbing structures on an annual basis. An independent climbing wall inspection helps ensure your facility is safe to operate and compliant with current regulations.
With years of experience, Monkey Mountaineering combines a unique blend of engineering, climbing and risk management principles, which can be applied to any artificial climbing structure, to ensure a truly independent, unbiased, and extremely thorough inspection.
After inspection we provide a full written report detailing our findings and where appropriate, making recommendations, with respect to:
The integrity and condition of the structural elements that support your artificial climbing structure.
Climbing surface and panel inserts.
Climbing holds and hold placement.
Top anchors and intermediate protection points.
The following elements/services are included in a Monkey Mountaineering independent annual climbing wall inspection:
Fully qualified and experienced inspection team.
Inspection of the sub-structure for integrity and condition.
Inspection of the climbing surface and panel inserts.
Inspection of the top anchors and intermediate protection points.
Inspection of the safety flooring.
Minor rectification work not requiring spares/new parts or special tools.
Detailed inspection report and certificate of inspection
This depends on the size of your facility. A small school or private wall can generally be inspected within a day. Larger facilities take longer to inspect. We will provide an estimate of how long it will take to inspect your facility along with our quote once you have been in touch with us.
Our detailed and comprehensive inspection report and inspection certificate will normally be with you within ten days of the inspection being completed. Our inspectors will give you a summary of their findings before leaving your premises on completion of the inspection and any immediate safety concerns will be communicated to you as soon as practicable once identified.
No, we are able to inspect your facility whilst it is in use. Our team will create a rolling cordon, putting specific areas out of use, to ensure your users are not put at risk whilst our inspection is taking place. Whilst doing this we will work with you and strive to achieve the minimum level of disruption to your normal daily operations.
