Short Distance Spacing/Every Inch Matters
For decades, elite powerlifters have been training on racks and cages which had 100 mm and 50 mm hole spacing. That was until the Westside Barbell founder Louie Simmons introduced the 1-inch spacing.
This significantly benefited equipped powerlifters and bench press enthusiasts as the shorter spacing allowed them to save that extra bit of energy by lifting the bar off by up to 2.5 cm less.
Understanding the stability
It is not necessarily the thickness of the steel which determines how stable the rack is going to be, but the weakest links. In this case, they are joints of the power cage.
The most stable option would be to weld the whole frame together, but that would make the shipping a nightmare.
So the only viable option is to ship it flat packed and reinforce the weakest links.
ATX®have done so by using 6 x industrial grade bolts with reinforcement brackets, to secure the upright to the frame.
This type of design allows ATX®racks to be wobble-free.
You will find the phrase ôCertified for commercial/domestic use by European Standards ‐ EN 20957 I.II.IV ‐ S/Hö written on pretty much all of the ATX®products. But what exactly do they mean with this statement?
Without wasting words, the German engineers had to back up their weight load capacity claims. All of the equipment and accessories have not only been tested for the maximum weight load capacity but also for the long-term stress in regards to the material fatigue.
So by owning ATX«, you‐ll know that you have a product which is designed to last.
