Introducing Panther Climbing Spikes

Posted September 1, 2021

If you work in landscaping or arboriculture, then you know how tough the job can be on your body.

All that bending, sawing, lifting, and turning, often with a pair of garden secateurs or other heavy tools in hand, can lead to serious injury over time. That’s why it’s so important to have high-quality tools; using a sharp, well-balanced tool makes everything that much easier, meaning you only have to work half as hard to get the same result and reducing the strain on your body. This is why we’re committed to bringing you a selection of the most innovative and reliable tools anywhere on the market.

Never is this truer than when we talk about tree climbing. Arborists engage in this activity every day, but like any task that involves working at height, it can result in serious injury from falls and other mishaps if workers don’t follow strict procedure or if they have faulty equipment. Today, we’d like to introduce a new product: Panther Climbing Spikes.


A New Zealand First


These premium climbing spikes aren’t just new to Metrogreen, they’re new to New Zealand, although they have been manufactured in the Czech Republic since 1991. We are pleased to be able to offer our customers this prestige product.



Features of Panther Spikes


Panther Climbing Spikes are built using an aluminium shaft and fibreglass shell, making them super light-weight at just 995 grams a piece. They are attached to the calves with either velcro or fastening straps and can be adjusted from 41 to 48cm in 2cm increments. The pads are designed for comfort and ventilation and do not retain dirt.

The main supporting element, the hook, is made from high-strength carbon, making it both extremely durable and flexible for ease of climbing. The steel spikes are the secondary supporting element. These are made of alloy steel and come in three lengths – short, medium, and long.

Panther Spikes have earned a reputation around the world for outstanding durability, comfort, ease of use, and above all, safety. Built using tested materials and safework principles, these are climbing spikes you can depend on when it matters most. When you’re having from a tree several metres off the ground, you need to know that your whole weight is thoroughly supported and that your climbing spikes won’t slip or break with one false move. Panther Spikes can give you the peace of mind to focus your attention on the job at hand.
