With its four-meter height, AquaClimb® Kurve gives adults, teenagers and kids a deep-water solo climbing experience. Designed to represent water in a continuous concave wave shape, the blue obscuring panels allow natural and artificial light to pass through but blur the view from behind the wall, giving climbers a sense of privacy. Kurve can be installed on either an indoor or outdoor pool deck where the water depth is eight feet or greater. A single hinge point allows for easy installation and a smooth climb.
