Rappel Towers

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 High-Strength Steel Rappel Towers Provide Unparalleled Support

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:

  • Code Compliance – All structures are designed to meet the latest version of the IBC code to ensure safety.
  • Longevity – We build our structures from standard galvanized steel components to resist corrosion for long life.
  • Rigid Support Structure – Our towers are constructed from steel, with heavy duty angle bracing for wind and seismic and lateral loads.
  • Secure Guard Rails and Surfaces – We construct fully welded stair and guard assemblies and us structural grade bar grating for the deck surface. The rappelling surface consists of ¾” treated plywood with a structural steel tubing support frame.
