Safe Climb

Pillar is proud to present the Safe Climb, a rebar safety climbing device. Our design focuses on durability, ease of use, and above all user safety and reliability. As a team, we outlined a detailed storyboard to define the challenges of this climbing device, some of which included loading scenarios, shear forces, FEA analysis, wear of parts, and user assembly. The entire product was developed methodically, meeting safety requirements, optimizing the design for part and cost reduction, while maintaining the client’s design goals. Stay tuned for more action sport gear from Pillar!

Styrka’s New Product Line

Pillar has been working closely with Stykra to develop a new line of binocular and rifle scopes in both budget and premium categories. Over the past year, we have brought initial sketches through the design process to production-ready CAD. In a product review on Facebook, a customer  wrote “Amazing optics!!!… Nice to see a company take such pride in their product. I sell these in the shop I work at and have NEVER heard a complaint!”. It’s very exciting to see the new line of optics being used in the field and receiving raving reviews online. Congrats Styrka!
