NEW! Shockwave Climber with Vibe® Handholds

Model #229837


Concentric circles and semicircles challenge climbers to find new ways – inside and outside – up to a deck. Small platforms of black belting provide convenient resting places along the way. The Vibe® design is reflected in the handholds which are a combination of stylish perforated steel and playful rotomolded plastic that modernizes the traditional post-and-deck playsystem.



  • Attaches to 72" or 96" deck
  • Durable galvanized steel construction
  • Elevated step constructed from extra-thick, textured, polyester-reinforced rubber belting (black only)
  • Uniquely designed laser-cut perforated steel and polyethylene handholds help kids transition from climber to deck
  • Also available with Permalene® handholds
  • 96” climber is direct bury only
