company was established in 2001, but our experience in building
climbing walls had started much earlier.
The first self-designed bouldering wall we built in 1994 in the basement of a housing estate block. The total surface was only 60 m2. Crowds of climbers coming to this small bouldering wall, far exceeding its capacity, made us think about a more serious project. However only after 6 years, in 2000, we could move to the building of a former boiler house, where we created a 200 m2 climbing area with vertical, overhang and roof climbing walls, good for leading and top ropes. We placed there as well two-lever bouldering area, one room on the top of the other and we produced our own climbing holds. After several years, this place also turned out to be too tight and the current GATO Climbing Center is inside a multi-level building, with 500 m2 of climbing area for recreational and professional climbers of all ages. Over time, our climbing center attracted the interest of our future customers and it made us think about how to use our experience to create the climbing walls for other people.
Over 15 years, we’ve realized more than 100 projects, expanding our offer by designing and building rope course, fun climbing system (http://funclimb.pl) and fun aerial courses. We cooperate with well-known architectural studios and developers of sports facilities. We’ve been working with a wide variety of clients: the institutions (e.g. city offices, schools, fire brigaded, armies), owners of prestigious brands (e.g. adidas, Puma, Fresh Logistics) as well as with the organizers of national and international competitions (e.g. Polish Mountaineering Association, International World Games Association). We have quite big experience in working abroad - we’ve realized some projects in United Kingdom, Switzerland, France, Holland, Italy, Israel and Saudi Arabia. In 2017 Gatowalls was chosen the supplier of all climbing walls for The World Games 2017 and we built for that purpose a new lead wall, new bouldering wall and a speed wall. We are proud to be one of the few companies in the world, whose speed climbing walls pass every time the IFSC (International Federation of Sport Climbing) certification, what confirms the high quality of our work, from both technological and safety side.
Gatowalls brand is recognized as a reliable and dynamically developing manufacturer of climbing walls, using modern technologies and according to the highest quality and safety standards. Our young team is constantly growing in order to meet customers' expectations and to sustain the company's development. Since we climb in rocks and mountains in Europe and worldwide, building walls is not only a job for us, but also transferring the ideas drawn from nature to cities, sports halls or adventure parks for children.
Gatowalls is also a manufacturer of climbing holds and volumes. In this industry we are constantly discovering new techniques and materials and experimenting with our products in order to reach the highest possible level. We control the quality of every single hold and volume and the dynamic development of our manufacturing technology has allowed us to achieve a very good friction on our climbing holds and to perfect the quality and manufacturing accuracy of our climbing volumes. We supply with our holds and volumes many climbing center in Poland, but also abroad (e.g. Japan, Germany, Austria, Spain, Russia, Lithuania and Sweden).
