What is CWMA?

The Climbing Wall Manufacturers Association is a group of climbing wall manufacturing companies who have achieved the strict membership criteria set up by the organisation regarding adherence to design, construction, quality, customer care and safety standards. CWMA exists in order to give those building a wall confidence that the highest standards are maintained in all aspects of construction and installation.

Manufacturers need to meet rigorous criteria for membership so clients can be confident they are getting the best advice and construction standards available.
