Free Standing Rigs
Rigs & Racks
Rigs are also referred to as Racks and Modular Racks but generally they are just called Rigs.
There are many different options to consider when purchasing a Rig. The main questions our clients ask are:
What type or size of Rig should buy?
This depends on how much space you have available, your budget, the number of clients you will have training on the rig at any one time, personal preference for things such as Monkey Bars, Triangular Chin-up Bars, Single or Double Cross Beams, Flying Pull Up Bars, and whether you want to add attachments such as Ball Targets, Dip Horns and Core Trainers. This requires some consultation and is not something that should be decided without careful consideration, to ensure you get the right rig for your facility.
Should I buy a Wall Mounted or Free Standing Rig?
If you have the space go for a free standing rig as you will have double the squat/bench press stations and chin-up stations. You will also have the ability to add more options such as Flying Pull-up Bars, Monkey Bars etc. If space is an issue then a Wall Mount Rig is ideal. With Titanium USA™ rigs you can choose between crossbeams that are either 1800mm or 1100mm from the wall. The same goes with our Free Standing Rigs. Most Titanium USA™ Rigs are engineered with 1800mm crossbeams to secure the front and rear sections of the rig, but you can order them with 1100mm cross beams to reduce space. Free standing rigs provide most facilities with a real centre peice for their layout. This provides greater functionality for clients and they just look awesome and impressive!
Do I need 9ft (2700mm) or 12ft (3600mm) uprights?
This really depends on how much height you have available in your facility. If you have ceilings that are over 3600mm high then 12ft uprights are an awesome option. This provides greater flexibility for cross beams heights for use with hanging gym ring, TRX’s and climbing ropes.
How thick should the steel be for the uprights and other components of the Rig?
For any serious Crossfit® facility, gym or training centre you should not have uprights that are less than 3 mm thick. Rig uprights should never be less than 3 mm thick for any serious training facility. Most rigs are manufactured with 2mm thick steel to cut costs but this is a major safety hazard and 2mm thick steel should never be considered. This may not sound like much of a difference but the end result is massive. There is also the width or diameter of the rig uprights. Again most of the models on the market are 60mm, 65mm or at best 70mm. Our rigs are all constructed using 75mm tubing for maximum strength, safety and durability.. Not only are they of the highest quality available but we provide them at wholesale direct prices for industry professional and facilities.
How many squatting or chin up stations do I need?
This also depends on how much available space you have and whether you are opting for a Wall Mounted or Free Standing Rig. The standard configuration is always and squat/bench press station (cell) followed by a chin-up station (cell) that can also be used for gym rings, climbing ropes or other attachments.
