The hanging board or Pan Güllich
This page contains some guidelines to create a pan gullich
and to install the hanging board on your walls.
Very important. Before using the hanging board,
warm up carefully your fingers, arms and shoulders. The efforts
required to exercise on the pan gullich are very intense and can
be traumatic to muscles, tendons and joints.
Moreover, this type of training is appropriate for those who have
already reached an advanced
level of climbing (over 7b/7c
of french scale).
In the picture above, the scheme of the pan gullich:

The pan gullich hanging board
The choice of dimensions of the wood board has to be made based
on the available space at your disposal: room size,
walls measures, ceiling height,
The thickness will have to be appropriate in relation to the final
size of the board, usually a min. of 2 cm. It can be installed
fixed to the walls or mobile and and needs to
have an inclination between 10 ° and 40 °.
The lower strips will have to be at a height of about 1.70 m from
the roof. Anyway, not low enough to get your feet too close to
the ground (with legs slightly bent).
Examples of installation on wall and ceiling
The wooden strips on the hanging board
They will be different in thickness and variable in number depending
on the size of the wooden board. The width must be at least the
same as your shoulders.
Taking the example diagram on the top of page, you can choose
from three sets of strips for different thickness and height.
The first strips with a height of 3 cm and depth of 2 cm, the
second with 4x3 cm, the third with 5x4 cm.
You can also choose a solution where the distance between the
strips is shorter, to make a less hard training.
You have to roughen the wood with a coarse sandpaper and you have
to smooth the edges which will take your fingers.
