Non-stop Climbing Wall

Retail & Business Revenue Opportunity

Freedom Climber ~ No ropes, no harness, no heights!

This revolutionary rotating wall of fun allows you to try your hand at climbing whilst staying only a few feet from the ground.  It’s completely safe and a great way to discover a new sport whether young or old!

A fun way to keep fit or a real alternative to full gyms that fits on a 8ft x 8ft wall – Freedom Climbing is the new strong!  Suitable for bedroom walls, commercial gyms, apartment blocks, office and retail centres. If you’d like us to install a wall  contact james@ntltp.com

How far can you climb on 3 minutes?

For those looking to challenge themselves, why not see how long you can climb on our never ending wall?

Climb Longer ‘n’ Stronger – Real activity working more muscles in a fun intensive workout!

BHAG: New Profit Centre for Leisure and Retail Centres
We see the FREEDOM CLIMBER like “commercial wallpaper”. If you have a wall space that is not adding value to your customer experience or generating incremental revenue… we’d like to explore how we can help

Dimensions

Where most fitness equipment occupies floor space, the space saving design of the Freedom Climber hugs a wall and has a foot print of 5.5 SF, compared to the average treadmill that has a footprint of 15 SF. The Freedom Climber will even fit in rooms with 8 foot ceilings (see bottom of page)

 
This Freedom Climber was installed in a room with 8 foot ceilings. In such settings, the top angle piece is left off and the finish height is 94 inches.

This photo also shows the distance the Freedom Climber extends out from the wall, which is 8 inches.
