Does anyone know who makes these square system tiles, or some similar system tiles?



Also what about those longer campus rungs, they look like 4 foot wide.

This is from a mountain athelete video, I want to build a system board like they have.

great thanks for the replies.

off i go, see if I can somehow get one of these built in my apartment.

hoping one 3/4 inch 4x8 piece of plywood mounted on two ten foot 2x4s, with two horizontal supports(one top one bottom) will work.

Though I haven't figured out how to stand it up. Might just put bottom against door frame and top suspended off slings coming off my hangboard above door, that would let me tweak the angle too.

I just need it secure enough so I can do drills going up and down it, or holding myself stationary on it.

may be heavy as hell like that maybe I can get away with 1/2 plywood and 2x2s for the cross supports hmm.

thanks for replies.

With just the system tiles you'll probably be fine with 3/4", but I wouldn't go thinner than that. Especially if you're not going to do standard framing, that 1/2" stuff will flex where it's not screwed down. They look like Pusher tiles to me as well. Does anyone else make system tiles?

If you use 2x2's at all use them as vertical studs between the two supporting end studs. I still recommend doing a standard frame. They use them in your interior, non load bearing walls which you don't hang off of, I think your board won't last all that long if you don't do so.

2x4's and one sheet of plywood isn't too heavy. My campus board is two 3/4" sheets of plywoods sandwiched on a standard 2x4 frame and while I had a lot of trouble moving it by myself, it was pretty easy with two people. I recommend building it in the space you plan to use it if possible to avoid building it and finding out you can't fit it through the door.

If you're going to put campus rungs on or anything else with set screws I'd recommend using two sheets of ply, otherwise the screw might tear through and you'll land on your ass.
