Here at SmallWall we are driving Children across the wall not up the walls. Our Horizontal climbing boards boards are installed at an average height of 1,700mm from ground to top of top board. A distance of 600mm between ground and top of bottom boards ensures boards are fixed below the recommended critical fall height. SmallWall installation team available if required and boards can be fixed onto suitable walls and fencing. Please note our boards are made from plastic and may warp slightly on sunny days but will always return to shape.

Children and young people with intellectual disabilities other cognitive disabilities such as ADHD, ASD, ADD, ODD (the list goes on) can benefit greatly from the Occupational Therapy that using their own body weight to work hard and in turn to ground themselves can bring.
People with poor muscle tone will benefit from being able to pull themselves up to the wall. This is an activity that is high intensity but does not require running around or much prior fitness to get started. The child having to concentrate on their hands and feet and make decisions and setting a challenge and reaching a goal for themselves all at the same time benefits and helps emotional regulation and reduce anxiety
Smallwall Horizonal Boards are an ideal addition to the school playground. Climbing moves are all horizontal in a safe manner and at a height that is easy to step down from as opposed to vertical and can be performed and practiced in a variety of ways. Different challenges and incentives can also be added.
To move efficiently across involves using skills such as concentration, agility, balance, co-ordination, centre of gravity and weight transfer. The boards are great for increasing upper body and grip strength.
The boards can be fixed on solid gable end/school walls, internally or externally, suitable fencing or existing astro-turf arenas using appropriate fixings.
