The Elite Half Rack with Platform fits in perfectly with the BFS Total Program of core and auxiliary lifts. Regardless of whether an athlete is on the off-season or in-season program, he or she can get through all our core lifts, and many of our standard and advanced auxiliary lifts, in one place. It’s the best piece of equipment for the best high school training program!
Depending upon the size of the facility and the number of athletes it services, a weightroom will have 8-20 half racks. Do the math. In a weightroom with 10 racks and four athletes per unit, one to lift and the other three to spot and help with loading the weights, 40 athletes can train at the same time. In a weightroom with 15 racks, 60 athletes can train; and with 20 half racks, 80 athletes can train. Such efficiency is why these racks have been, year after year, our best seller by far.
All BFS Racks are built to last, with massive 7-gauge steel tubing and a lifetime frame warranty. For the platform, our most popular surface is a vinyl called Protect-All®, which is placed on top of two layers of heavy rubber for shock absorption. Protect-All is an attractive gray surface that is easy to clean and extremely durable and allows for the placement of logos. Protect-All is not sticky like some coverings, will not warp as wood can and doesn’t become slippery when water or chalk is spilled on it.
