Rappel towers are platforms used to safely practice rappelling. In addition to recreational uses, first responders and military personnel utilize rappel towers as part of their tactical training. At Porta-King, we ensure safety and longevity of your structure with rappel towers that are built to last. They can be installed anywhere and are perfect in areas where access to a natural rappelling structure is not practical.

Our rappel towers are made entirely of high-strength steel. This includes structural steel tube columns, horizontal I-beams, and sturdy support frames. At Porta-King, we guarantee rappel towers that meet the following standards:
