Additionally, any inspection of a climbing wall in the State of Florida shall be done by a qualified person / company. Having a state inspection is a duty to demponstrate to the state that you are in compliance with the law and that is it. You must hire a 3rd party inspector to perform a hands on inspection of your climbing wall or tower in the state of Florida.- Do both at the same time and save money. ESI is qaulified to perform both simultaniously in the State of Florida.
