Loft ladders are just one of those items in life. Sure you can do without it by climbing into the loft like a monkey, using the doors as “foot grips” or maybe just use a set of step ladders and risk life and limb when getting down. But get a simple loft ladder and suddenly it’s so simple and care free! It’s a loft ladder people not rocket science. Just measure up from the floor of the ground to the floor of the loft and then get one that is the same size or bigger than what you need. SIMPLEZ! Or maybe you could just get a climbing wall and get into your loft that way….
It’s not often that we pick out an individual firm to do a blog post about. But this firm in Frederick County, Maryland, USA makes something quite amazing and blew our minds apart when we first saw it. It’s kind of a extreme ladder (so to speak). But They like to call it a AquaClimb®.
This extraordinary firm makes and designs poolside climbing boards. With the unique idea that the board goes up at the deep end and you can try to climb to the top of it rope, crampons and Full Body Harness free! Due to the inverted slope of the pool side climbing wall it means the higher you go the more backwards into the pool you go. The good news is that it doesn’t mater what point of it you fall off, it’s always back into the water. Kind of free climbing for swimming pool goers. But it’s not all about fun and games as the company message will tell you…
“AquaClimb® is a quickly growing brand amongst the giants of the aquatic industry. We have a big mission—to bring innovative and original recreation and fitness solutions to pools worldwide. With hundreds of AquaClimbs® installed and over a decade of experience we can safely say that we are the market leader in poolside climbing wall products”. (Ladders-Online:are there any others?!?)
“The company has contributed greatly to the development of a fast-rising (quite literally) sport known as aquatic climbing. The combination of fun and fitness has proven to be a potent solution that has allowed many pools to bring back the teen and adult demographics they had lost and to improve the overall patron experience.”
So not only fun and games but also keep fit! Now while we here at Ladders-Online will not endorse this or any other fitness equipment (our idea of a warm up is drink a cup of hot chocolate!) we had and stop for a minute when we first saw this to wonder how much fun this might be. Our conclusion was….. LOADS!So much like the loftladder types that we sell, it might not be badly needed but life would be so much better if you had one.
So who is going to pay for us to have one of these installed in the warehouse!?! …Oh! And put in a pool before that, because all we have is a bathtub full of rain water.
