Bi-Lateral Totem Climber
The Bi-Lateral Totem Climber forces unique foot and hand positions such as the supination of the foot and outward rotation of the hips and shoulders due its unique design; this climber’s design features two vertical posts with blocks on facing sides and is the only climber requiring children to push out in order to climb. The wide stance required for this climber challenges balance and initiates use of the inner and outer leg muscles. It also works the shoulders and tricep muscles, stretches the leg muscles, and involves motor planning. Recommended for older preschool and school-age children.
The Totem Climber challenges core strength as well as muscles of the arms and legs. An open task, the Totem Climber is a proprioceptive challenge because of the random placement of block steps.
The Oblique Climber challenges core and balance. This angled climber requires more reliance on leg strength than arm strength. The fixed angle discourages climbing without hands and encourages children to maintain hand contact. Angled climbers, such as the Oblique Climber, are generally considered easier than vertical climbers and are much preferred over metal pipe arch climbers. Our preschool sized Oblique Climber has several planks no more than 3 ½” apart. For school-aged children, we span the cross bars farther apart to stretch the skipping distance in order to challenge the age group uniquely.
Perceptual Motor Wall Climber
The Perceptual Motor Wall features a random spacing of blocks that enhances hand-eye coordination, motor planning, and targets most muscle groups. Because of the design, this climber requires an outward rotation of the arm in the grip position, which challenges postural muscles of the back and shoulder and strengthens the hands, forearms, and legs. The groove on the top of each block promotes finger and wrist strength. Recommended for older preschool and school-age children.
This is an overhead ladder for children to play on.
The Tire Climber consists of two tires for children to climb on.
The Net Climber consists of a grid of nylon covered steel rope arranged in a vertical plane and stretched between two upright posts and an overhead pipe. The grid is designed to encourage both vertical climbing and horizontal shuffling. The rope size is smaller than typical metal rung climbers, consequently requiring more finger strength from the user. Because the grid is somewhat flexible, the user’s body will lean backward increasing the workout for the upper body including the biceps, shoulders, hips, thighs, and stomach muscles. This climber can be used simultaneously from either side of the grid and can be a stand alone event or connected to a deck as an access or egress climber.
Similar to our Oblique Climber, the Over Under Climber is an angled climbing wall with a solid plane overlaid with 1.5” high cleats. This climber provides an easy climbing angle and the design eliminates the possibility that any portion of the child’s body can extend through the climbing plane. Recommended for young toddlers up.
