Our work begins with a detailed CAD model and precise manufacturing techniques.

The SLM climbing wall success is based in Vertical Solutions’ custom-built 5-axis CNC machine, which cuts and drills each panel to the exact specification needed for quick assembly and perfect alignment with our steel structures.
