allHOLDS materials


On the way to our allHOLDS vision – producing sustainable climbing holds while offering variety and quality – our network started to develop an eco-friendly polyurethane. This casting resin should contain all characteristics that are needed for a long-lasting climbing hold and are necessary for the production of individual climbing holds.

The result is impressive: allHOLDS ECO-friendly polyurethane is very abrasion resistant and has many advantages over polyester. The material can be cast by hand as well as by machine.

It is suitable to produce holds that meet the standard DIN EN 12572-3:2017.

The polyurethane manufacturer ebalta is certified as a carbon-neutral company through CO2 offsetting, the casting resin from ECO-friendly polyurethane is certified as a carbon-neutral product through CO2 offsetting.

allHOLDS Nachhaltigkeit

Certified Sustainability

The casting resin from ECO-friendly Polyurethane consists of up to 40% raw materials from renewable sources and was certified as a carbon-neutral product through CO2 offsetting.

Further facts:

  • No use of styrene and deliberate avoidance of plasticisers
  • Durability due to very high abrasion resistance
  • Material savings due to thickness than polyester
  • Less waste, less weight and less CO2 emission

In close cooperation with the allHOLDS network, ebalta is constantly working to improve the ECO-friendly PU moulding compound and increase the use of renewable raw materials and recycled polyols. The network is also working to optimise climbing hold production with the help of new production technologies such as 3D printing. This reduces material, waste and costs. The network is also endeavouring to find sustainable solutions for disposal and reusability. The emissions generated despite reduction measures are offset by certified climate protection projects in other parts of the world. The polyurethane developer ebalta is certified as a climate-neutral company through CO2 offsetting.

Easy processing

With the casting resins from ECO-friendly polyurethane thinner wall thicknesses can be produced. This leads to significantly less material consumption and enables a variety of grip shapes, such as flat tapered handles.

Climbing holds made of polyester are fully casted and therefore heavy. The weight advantage of polyurethane is noticeable in handling, packaging and transport.

allHOLDS Wirtschaftlichkeit

High efficency

allHOLDS Eco-friendly polyurethane is offered for hand and machine casting. Cycle times of 10 minutes are possible. This saves time and makes production more efficient.

Material savings due to abrasion resistance and thinner wall thicknesses also increase cost-effectiveness.

allHOLDS is supported by ebalta Kunststoff GmbH, leading manufacturer of polyurethane resins.
