Ivanko's rubber E-Z Lift® plate is just one example of starting with good ideas from the past and coming up with something better. We designed this plate with more grip holes to make it easier to pick up, and therefore safer. And we kept it round for very good reasons that have stood the test of time: ease of use and exercise safety. Finally, we covered this plate with our own proprietary rubber formulation which makes it softer on equipment and easier to grip without slipping. Our unique rubber curing process also means no offensive smell in the air.
Coming up with better ideas is not just a process, it's an attitude -- one of never being satisfied with the way things are, of always striving to give the marketplace something better.
