Add dimension to your wall.
Rockwerx Climbing Volumes are an excellent solution for giving depth to flat walls or extra technical features to custom walls. Coated with our super durable Gym Rock Lite surface coating, they fit seamlessly onto our Gym Rock Lite plywood walls and on any of our Gym Rock concrete walls. They also will work with any standard commercial climbing wall or similar product. With several different shapes and even more sizes to choose from, Rockwerx volumes can accommodate any space or budget. These 3D shapes come in a broad range of colors, and are covered in t-nuts, giving you tons of options for adding holds. Whether adding some interest to a traverse wall or making a vertical climb more challenging, Rockwerx Volumes will provide excitement for climbers of any skill level.
What is a Volume?
A volume is an extension of the wall. It is a multi-sided, generally plywood but sometimes plastic/resin, climbing feature that attaches to the wall similar to a climbing hand hold.
So... It's a giant hold?
Not quite… While volumes can be used just like climbing holds, the major difference is that they provide additional route setting potential with holes and t-nuts on their sides. They’re also usually covered in the same material as the climbing wall they’re on, and most shapes end up being less ‘positive’ which means there are fewer in-cut angles to grab onto.
How strong are they? What if I drop it?
A well made volume is stronger than the wall you’re climbing on. You could drop it or even throw it, and it will still be structurally sound. With proper care a volume should last for years even in a commercial setting.
Why would I get a volume and not just make the wall that shape?
The volume provides near infinite setting possibilities on a wall without complex features, because the volumes become the features, and they can be moved around, and you can put more climbing holds on them. The more simple surfaces and corners on your wall, the more compatible the wall is with adding volumes, and adding interesting and unique climbing routes. Overly complex wall design reduces the route variety and creativity of setting often creating similar routes over and over. Volumes and simpler walls help control this age-old problem, especially with the use of the Rockwerx infinity system.
What is the Rockwerx Infinity System?
The Rockwerx infinity system is the coordination of volumes and wall angles to work together seamlessly like puzzle pieces in a way never before seen. By utilizing complementary angles our volumes can stack on exterior corners and fill in interior corners effectively expanding the surface on which they can be used and creating an infinite number of routesetting possibilities.
How do I climb on Volumes?
Most of the time, this really depends on how they are set. It’s very common for volumes to be used for you to climb over and onto, with a flat or sloping side on the top for you to press up and stand on, essentially creating a ledge. Sometimes they are simply there for you to stand on and walk or even run across. With the right volume shape, and skillful placement, they can be used as hand holds, and often require full-body tension to complete the intended move.
