Top Tier Performance with TuffStuff’s PRO-XL Half Rack
Tired of Half Racks that shake, wobble, and creak when in use? Need to upgrade your commercial facility’s half cage that’s chipping paint and rusting? Check-out TuffStuff’s PRO-XL Racks. Full commercial quality, designed and manufactured in the USA, PRO-XL Racks are crafted from extremely durable 3” x 3” 7-gauge steel. Each half rack includes an electrically welded high-strength frame, storage hooks, suspension loops, power band pegs, Olympic bar storage, heavy duty weight plate horns, and reinforced safety spotters rated to support 900 lbs. weight capacity.
How sturdy is the TuffStuff Half Rack?
The Commercial Grade Half Rack is engineered and manufactured at TuffStuff’s state of the art facility in Chino, California, spanning over 160,000 sq. ft. Beefy 3” x 3” 7-gauge steel for the upright posts, and 2” x 3” 11-gauge steel for the connecting beams and base are cut and fabricated in America. The high strength steel frame structures are then shipped with high tensile strength Grade 5 and Grade 8 bolts and maybe bolted to the floor for optimal structural strength.
How does the performance of the TuffStuff Half Rack compare to other racks?
While many companies build half racks, few make commercial-grade racks that last. TuffStuff’s commitment to the highest standards of quality is why all of their PRO-XL Racks are made with 7-guage steel in Chino, California. Standing at approximately 8 ft tall and weighing 410 to 860 lbs, TuffStuff’s commercial PRO XL Racks provide a stable foundation for the most demanding performance training workouts. Each rack is also built with space efficiency in mind. TuffStuff’s design allows users to have maximum usable distance from the end of the J-hook to the end of the safety spotter rails, should a user fall backward or forward.
Lift off and re-racking of loaded Olympic bars after heavy squatting, presses, or Olympic lifts can be performed with confidence as the Swing Lock J-hooks utilize 1” solid steel and are integrated onto the upright posts. Also integrated are the lined Lever Lock safety spotters, providing a 900 lb. weight capacity. Repositioning of the J-hooks and safety spotters are performed swiftly in 3” increments by lifting, sliding, and latching onto an indexed position with ease. Because of the integrated design, misplacing and improperly positioning the J-hooks and safety spotters becomes negligible.
A multitude of features that increase functionality on the Half Rack are built-in, providing added value to any commercial facility. Rack bumper plates, urethane and rubber coated grip plates, or standard cast iron Olympic plates on the integrated plate holders for convenient storage. Built-in lower band pegs are integrated, a necessity for any sport performance facility for band training. Store your powerlifting bar and Olympic bar on one of the two built in bar storage holders for clear access to the multi-grip pull-up bar above.
Pull-up grips are welded onto the upper cross member for various upper body exercises, and unlike many other manufacturers that utilize a rubber encasing that eventually rips and tears, TuffStuff knurls and zinc plates the grips for long term durability. Built for functional training, the premium half rack includes welded suspension training loops on the upper cross member to secure gymnastic rings, a Jungle Gym XT, or other systems that require dual anchoring points, or secure your TRX, CrossCore 180, or Rip 60 suspension trainer in the middle of the upper cross member.
What options are available for the half rack?
Various options are available to enhance and expand the functionality of TuffStuff’s PRO XL Half Racks. For Olympic lifting in universities and professional team gyms, add the 2” thick Olympic Platform and Insert with ¾” Solid Oak Hardwood Center, or the 2” thick rubber Olympic lifting platform.
Added versatility is also available with the Landmine option, allowing functional training in multiple planes of motion. For enhanced safety, Spotter Platforms are also available.
Half Racks are a popular strength equipment piece, and choosing the TuffStuff Pro XL Half Rack will provide a high quality and safe strength training station for the most demanding of free weight barbell exercises, while adding multiple functional training uses. Whether you are outfitting a military base, world class sport performance training facility, or an elite gym, the TuffStuff Pro XL Half rack will surpass your expectations in quality, durability, and function.
For long term wear, the PRO-XL frame structures undergo an 8-step powder coat painting process. Each of TuffStuff’s PRO-XL Racks features a two-tone finish with the option of seven standard colors. Custom colors to match your professional sports team, university, or commercial gym facility are also available – contact us to learn more.
