Construction in Thailand Is building in Thailand as bad as it seems? Can properties really be built and fitted out to European standards? Would you like to Build your own house in Phuket, or a swimming pool in Bangkok? Solar water heating in Pattaya? Or maybe you want to build a resort or guesthouse on Koh Samui? If you want to build a luxury house in Thailand then this is the forum for you.

Strong walls for a climbing wall?

I plan to build a climbing wall on the side of our garage / storage building.

Before I had this idea I wanted to build the garage with breezeblock or a similar cheap aac block. I doubt this will be strong enough to support the climbing grips though.

Should we do this with the red bricks or what other solution would you recommend?

I have some heavy metal/glass cupboards filled with heavy crockery that I’ve bolted into the sun-dried red brick internal walls – they are very strong. If only for kids (and I can’t imagine adults using it if it’s only 2-3m high) they’d do just fine. If higher than that, I’d pour a reinforced concrete wall. Caveat: I’m not an expert – just a do-it-yourselfer.

Is TD sending you up the wall?

You may be more suited to the social climbers on TV

I don't think your weight is going to matter much, that is unless you weigh 200kg. Strongest will ofcourse be concrete but brick masonry or qblocks will be sufficient and cheaper.

As Koetjeka said I don't think the strength of the wall is the issue.
I believe the way you fix the grips to the wall should be your main focus. If they are not fitted correctly they could pull out rather than pull down the wall.

Another thing to consider is does the wall have to be just straight or does it have to be sloping? I can imagine sloping walls are easier to construct of concrete.

According to my surfing you can install a plywood frame so I see no problem with breeze blocks, can't see bricks being and stronger. If worried you could go double tied together cavity wall. Use Hilti collapsable cavity plastic anchors to attach the holds not simply ones?
If you want an overhang that might need a formed concrete wall?
From what i have garnered you use 3/4 plywood.
You could build a block wall and attached thick fibre reinforced cement sheets to it? Then install the holds but...

I think simplest would be to build the wall using steel studs (common here) and cement sheeting. Same theory as plywood just termite proof. Then you can follow roughly all the sites on DIY climbing walls.

^Yes. What he said.

If this is just for bouldering, you will want some overhang, no?

Have to agree here.
