Climbing Gym Matress

Post by T-mouse » Tue Mar 13, 2007 10:55 am

Hi Guys,

I've just finished building my home bouldering wall and I now need to organise some mattresses (most of the wall is 2m high roof). I want the cheapest solution even if it does not please the eye. I phoned a place that sells hight jump fall mats but thats gonna set me back about R1600 for a 2.2mx1.4mx200mm which is more than I was hoping to pay. I also phoned a foam company but I have no idea what density foam to use or what different layers to use so after trying to sound as if I knew what I wanted I ended up with a quote of R 2831 for plain foam...hmmmm.

I'd really appreciate any help.

What do you guys use?
Density foams; chip foam ?

Old matresses work well.
