Safety and inspection
TÜV Netherlands is an independent body that checks the safety of artificial climbing walls. Part of the safety system are aspects like structural stability and correct functioning of the climbing structure and it’s protection points. Also they look at risk analysis, management of risks, registrations and the materials used.
In cooperation with TÜV Netherlands Mountain Network conducts operative inspections on new walls and annual inspections on existing climbing walls. All MN walls are built to the EN-12572 standard and are inspected immediately upon completion. After this operative inspection, you will receive a handbook which includes a report with all the results, a TÜV safety certificate, technical data and risk assessments .
The TÜV safety certificate will remain valid as long as the climbing wall is annually inspected and maintained.
