Frequently Asked Questions

Manufacturing & Shipping Questions

Is Freedom Climber Made in the USA?

The Freedom Climber is made in the USA in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.

How is the Freedom Climber Shipped?

The Freedom Climber comes unassembled in a crate that is 48” wide, by 96” long, by 30” high.

How do I get it into my facility?

The components of the crate can be removed and carried in through typical size doors. If a sheet of plywood can be carried through, the components will fit through the passageway. Two strong individuals are required to carry the components.

Would my wall need to be reinforced to hold it?

The only requirement concerning the mounting wall is that it be structurally sound, which most walls are. The exception is partition walls which is not structurally sound in that it has no structural connection to the structural ceiling members above.

Wall Requirements

  1. The wall must be structurally sound, which means it must be connected to the floor beneath it and the ceiling/roof structure above it.
  2. A partition wall is not adequate.
  3. Wood studs are ideal.
  4. If the wall could be used to support the anchors for a body weight suspension system like TRX, the wall is adequate to support the Freedom Climber.
  5. If the construction is new and the details are calling for metal studs, then, if allowed, wood studs can be placed in the channels of the studs to both stiffen the studs and provide ideal anchoring where the Freedom Climber will be located (the width of the Freedom Climber is 110″).

Installation & Maintenance Questions

Will it fit in rooms with 8' ceilings?

Yes. By leaving off the top trim piece, the Freedom Climber has a height of 94” which is 2” shy of the 96” ceiling height found in many homes.

If you have lower than 8′ ceiling, you can order an 86″ version of the Freedom Climber (pictured below).

Can the Freedom Climber Stand Alone?

No, the Freedom Climber is always mounted to a wall or other structure that provides stability.

Does the Freedom Climber require electricity?

The action of climbing and the climber’s weight causes the circular surface to rotate, so the Freedom Climber does not require electricity to operate.

What Maintenance is Required for Freedom Climber?

The Freedom Climber is virtually maintenance free. The climbing surface may need wiped down on occasion and the climbing holds checked for tightness.

What is the Weight Limit for Freedom Climber?

275 pounds. Two people can climb at the same time but in that case the weight distribution is spread out.

If I put a Freedom Climber in my fitness center, where is my Return On Investment (ROI)?

Facilities that strive to provide unique and challenging experiences for their membership increase the likelihood of retaining those members and attracting new members. Because the Freedom Climber also functions as a workout station, members who like to workout together can create their own circuits that meet their fitness objectives. Trainers can also create circuits that become part of their personal training.
