Magna Climbing Wall
It’s all in the name with the Magna® Climbing Wall. This “magnetic climbing wall” lets you place, remove and arrange magnets while you climb. It’s a truly interactive experience! Play climbing wall games and mark routes. Learn math fact or spelling words on this amazing magnetic climbing wall. It’s perfect for schools and appeals to all students, especially the kinesthetic learners, or those who benefit from moving while they learn.
The color-coded Groperz™ Hand Holds offer a variety of options for climbers to use as they travel across the Traverse Wall. Green hand holds are the largest and easiest to grip. The yellow holds come in a variety of sizes and offer a light challenge. The red holds are medium sized and provide the most challenge. Climbers can choose to use any color hand hold, or try the extra challenge of climbing using only hand holds of the same color. Our signature Red-Relief Line® is a safety feature that reminds climbers to stay within a distance of three feet from the floor and is a helpful tool for the climbing wall supervisor. The Magna Climbing Wall offers more ways to get “stuck” on climbing!
Each 4′ x 8′ Magna Climbing Wall panel includes sentence building, word building and math magnets, 20 patented Groperz Route-Setting Hand Holds, 66 preset placement options for mounting hand holds and the Red-Relief Line. A 10′-high version and fire retardant upgrade are available. Also available in a size great for Early Childhood programs. View our WeeKidz Wall.
Safety mats and a way to “close” your magnetic climbing wall to prevent unauthorized use are recommended. View our Mat-Locking System.
The Magna Climbing Wall is protected by one or more U.S. Patents. View our patents.

Note: Our traverse climbing walls are available in any length. Since panels are 4′ wide, we recommend lengths that are multiples of 4, but we can accommodate any desired length.
What is the wall made of?
The Magna® Climbing Wall is constructed of 3/4" plywood and are coated with Groperz™ Tip Top Texture™ with a Magna® fleck mixed in to provide a granite-like look and feel and magnet-accepting properities.
How do the hand holds attach to the wall?
Groperz Hand holds are mounted to the traverse wall through t-nuts and held in place with bolts. They are mounted and removed with the use of an included Allen wrench. Since our t-nuts are of premium quality and our bolts of standardized length, removing and moving hand holds is simple and fast.
How many hand holds are included with a traverse wall?
Each 4' x 8' panel comes with 20 Groperz Hand Holds and 66 t-nuts, offering a variety of options for varying difficulty levels.
Can we take the wall down and move it?
Yes, walls may be removed from existing sites and reinstalled in alternate sites. New mounting hardware will be required for installation.
What activities can we do with the wall?
A Climbing the Walls™ activity guide is available for purchase. This resource contains a rich variety of fun, challenging, and age-appropriate climbing wall activities for use on your wall.
What is the added liability or insurance need?
Product Liability Insurance backs all Everlast Climbing products. It is also recommended that you consult with your insurance carrier to see if they require any additional insurance. With traverse walls, additional coverage is not typically required since the climber’s feet are not more than 3½’ off the floor and safety mats provide 6’ of fall zone protection.
What do we need for safety surfacing?
Mats are an important safety component of your climbing wall. Everlast Climbing offers safety mats in two thicknesses: 2” and 3". Mats are constructed of polyethylene foam enclosed in an 18-oz. polyester reinforced vinyl cover. They come in 4’ x 6’ sections and are available in Royal Blue, Red and 14 custom colors (for an additional cost).
How can we prevent unauthorized climbing?
Our patented Mat-Locking® System closes and locks your climbing wall when you want to restrict access. The system is cordless and really easy to use. Simply hang mats onto the climbing wall by hanging the webbing loops onto specially-designed hand holds. Push up the red security latch and lock with a few turns of the security bold. The mats Velcro® to one another and attach to the base of the climbing wall with nylon tabs. A "No Climbing" decal is printed on the outer side of the mats to serve as notice that the climbing wall is closed.
Are we limited to a traverse wall that is either 20' or 40' long?
No. We can build a traverse wall any desired length. Our website provides pricing and information for those two lengths, but we often build climbing walls of other lengths. Contact us and we will be happy to provide you with pricing and more details.
Shipping and Install
Your climbing wall will ship to the delivery address you specify via truck. We cannot deliver to PO Boxes.
You will need to meet the truck, break down the crate, and carry each piece of the climbing wall inside. This can take as little as 25 minutes with a group of 4 – 6 people. Lift gate is not available on any orders. If unloading is not an option for you, Inside Delivery is available. Please contact your salesperson to add this to your order.
Please inspect all pallets and boxes before signing for the delivery. If there is any damage, you MUST note the damage on the delivery receipt BEFORE you sign it, or a damage claim cannot be filed with the trucking company. This is very important – please notify your receiving personnel and the person who usually signs for deliveries of this fact. Call us if there is any apparent damage and we will work with you to resolve the problem. Do not throw away any damaged material.
Please protect your shipment until the installation takes place. Any damage occurring after receipt is your responsibility.
Everlast Climbing offers professional climbing wall installation. Installation can also be completed by maintenance staff or anyone familiar with construction and building. A 20′ Magna Wall will take roughly 3 to 4 hours to install. Installation is done by drilling panels into place using a 1/2” hammer drill bit, and securing them using sleeve anchors.
