Quality is what distinguishes one climbing park from another. Quality is what ensures the flawless operation of your park. It is quality that guarantees a high level of customer satisfaction. And last but not least, it is quality that will determine the profitability of your business. This means that quality has to be an intrinsic property of the product, comprising all aspects of a climbing park and not just being limited to the materials used or to the assembly process chosen. This also means that our commitment to quality starts right at the drawing board.
Quality? It's in the numbers...
Together with independant certification bodies like TUV, and other leading specialists we have developed unique and specific software for mechanical loadstress and strength calculations in climbingparks. The CAD system we use to design our climbing parks is directly linked to a database which contains the specifications of every single project carried out by Skywalker during the past 10 years. These data include, for example, the strength of various wood types as well as wood-based materials, various soil configurations and local climatic conditions. These parameters are used in conjunction with the data we gather during our preliminary assessment of your site to calculate the construction statics which form an integral part of the detailed technical documentation package required by any Test & Certification body.
Ecological design criteria
An unspoilt experience of nature is one of the essential factors to be taken into account if you want to turn your outdoor climbing park into a customer attraction. Therefore, it is paramount to integrate the activity parcours into the surrounding environment as perfectly as possible. This ensures the long-term success of your outdoor activity facilities by providing a memorable experience package to visitors rather than just a temporary opportunity for physical exercise. This is why we exclusively use natural and environmentally friendly construction materials and keep the design as a whole as close to natural forms and shapes as possible. After all, tree trunks are round. So why use square-shaped platforms?
In this stage the designated site of your climbing park will get a "reality check". We assess the grounds and vegetation on site and examine the surrounding infrastructure. If your site does not meet the criteria required for the installation of a high-quality high rope course we tell you immediately. We do not compromise on this matter. Not only since we are committed to providing high-quality products to all our customers but also because we as well as our customers know that the profitability of any climbing park depends on sustainable functionality at minimum running cost.
The secret? Nature preservation
Skywalker recommends a minimum area for any site designated for the installation of a climbing park is 1.5 hectares. Why is that? Unfortunately, and in many cases, the installation of climbing parks involves extensive pruning or even cutting down trees completely, if not concreting over large areas of green fields in order to maximise the number of activity parcours per facility.
With more than a decade of experience in designing and installing climbing parks all over Europe we know that it is the overall degree of integration of a climbing park into its surrounding natural environment which will eventually determine the level of customer satisfaction and, thus, the profitability of the facility. Hence, and in your own interest, any interference with the surrounding flora and fauna has to be kept to the absolute minimum. Which basically means that if the forest on site looks exactly the way it did before the climbing park was installed, you've been doing things the right way...
And there is more...
Our commitment to high-quality products does not end on the day your new High Ropes Courses has been assembled on your site. We offer not only service and maintenance contracts as well as staff training and development opportunities, but can also arrange a technical inspection of the climbing park by an accredited independent test and certification body prior to the opening to the public. This will help you to secure more competitive quotes from commercial insurance providers. And we are so confident in the quality of our products that we offer a full year warranty.
