Welcome to the SmallWall Website.
SmallWall is a company that designs and manufactures a range of products for schools and community groups nationwide. Our range of equipment include a variety of climbing products that fix to the ground or to a solid wall or existing astro fencing and a unique activity centre that helps children develop fundamental movement skills through physical activity. We can also design, manufacture and install products customised to suit your requirements.
Our products are targeted at increasing engagement in physical activity in children so that they develop core fundamental movement skills.
We are a family business established in 2016 by Sean Dunleavy after experiencing shortcomings in the area of using fundamental movements when coaching children. Sean has a 30 year background in product development and design and he manufactures and installs the equipment to schools and communities. Rachael deals with the administration side and each of our six children assist in various ways in the business. We aim to provide a 100% satisfaction rate to all our customers and provide an individual personalised service - from your initial query to the final stage of product installation. We also offer an after care maintenance service on all our products.
Our aim at SmallWall is to increase physical activity in children regardless of age or ability and make learning of fundamental movement skills fun for all users.
Fundamental movement skills are a specific set of skills learned by children through physical activity that involve different body parts such as feet, legs, trunk, head, arms and hands. FMS include locomotor and non-locomotor skills – jump, catch, throw, run, hop, agility, kick, strike, skip, walk, balance rolling, sliding, jogging, leaping, dodging, galloping. These skills are the “building blocks” for more complex and specialised skills that children will need throughout their lives to competently participate in different games, sports and recreational activities. However, because children tend to have more structured play and are being less physically active and tend to play more indoors than outside as was the norm a few years ago, these movement skills are in serious decline, leading to possible health problems in the future.
