Only the highest-grade materials make it into Core Climbing holds. A reinforced composite resin makes them both hardwearing and high strength.
Core Climbing holds conform and exceed
- EN 12572-3, Artificial Climbing Structures - Part 3: Safety requirements and test methods for climbing holds.
Larger holds have been reduced to make them lighter in weight and easier to handle.
All holds (excluding screw-ons) can take either a countersunk or cap head bolt as standard. For larger holds or holds with an elongated shape, we have added a counter screw placement to prevent spinning on wooden walls. For the Mini Volumes, we advise using a bolt and at least three screws.
We recommend that our bolt-on holds are fixed to a GRP or plywood surface, The following torque settings are designed to be an approximate guide for fixing the holds to an even flat surface to prevent spinning and breakages:
- Mini Bolt-ons, Crimps, Mini Jugs: 20-25Nm
- Pockets, Pinches, Medium Jugs: 25-35Nm
- Large Jugs, Slopers: 35-40Nm
To effectively clean the holds and reduce the chance of colour fading or surface damage, we advise cleaning in cold water only, preferably with a jet wash.
We also recommend the use of Benky Gripwash, following the manufacturers cleaning guidelines of 6 minutes exposure to a 50% or higher solution, and briefly rinsing in clean cold water afterwards. A pre-rinse in water will also help by removing the surface chalk and prolonging the effectiveness of the Gripwash.
