Defender Strength Training Half Rack | IRON COMPANY (IC-USA-DHC-100-A)




USA Defender Half Rack - The USA Strength and Performance Defender Half Rack is a commercial half rack gym, or half cage, built for heavy barbell strength training. What makes the Defender half rack unique from others is the new Patent pending ECOSLIDE system. The ECOSLIDE eliminates the need to remove the J-Hooks and spotter bars from the rack to adjust the height. Simply pop the pin and slide up and down to the desired height in seconds. The J-Hooks can even be adjusted with one hand making this the most user friendly squat rack we've seen on the market.

The Defender half rack is budget and space friendly making its smaller footprint and lower price point very appealing for CrossFit boxes, school weight rooms and even garage gyms. Its frame is constructed of 3" x 3" x 11 gauge steel tubing and grade 5 and 8 hardware. We included 5 plate holders on each side to ensure plenty of poundage is always within close range. For pull-ups and suspension training, trainees will appreciate the front mounted pull-up bar. And when your new Defender half rack arrives, only minimal assembly is required for its four piece main frame that includes twelve bolts.
