elitefts Develops New “Professional Rated” Designation To Communicate Best-In-Class Equipment

LONDON, Ohio, Sept 18, 2016—Today, elitefts announces its Professional Rated designation to better communicate to customers the comprehensive durability and performance criteria its power racks must meet.

“Professional Grade is an industry-recognized methodology to accurately measure and anticipate product performance for specially designated elitefts power racks,” said elitefts director of sales, Matt Goodwin. “We developed Professional Grade to communicate the industry-leading quality and durability engineered into our power racks.”

The new “Professional Grade” badge designates that each power rack carrying this icon has been designed to perform in various extreme weight room conditions, including Load Capacity, Stabilization, Repeated Use, and, Fit and Finish.

“As our product portfolio continues to expand, Professional Rated will help ensure that our reputation for providing the highest quality and most durable racks in the industry remains a cornerstone of our brand.”

What is Professional Rated?

Professional Rated indicates that elitefts branded power rack with the “PR” designation has passed specialized testing. Load Capacity, Stabilization, Repeated Use, and Fit and Finish are all assessed.

Professional Rated Equipment Load Capacity

Load Capacity

The load capacity standard indicates the total weight the rack will hold (including both the “J-Hooks” and the pins). The durability of the elitefts Professional Rated power rack helps prevent damage from hefty loads—at least double the heaviest competition squat ever recorded.

Frame design, material selection, and overall construction provide greater stability and minimize any chance the rack will be damaged or bent under extreme circumstances. 


Professional Rated Equipment Stabilization


elitefts Professional Rated power racks can withstand the most demanding and excessive weight room environments with heavy-duty gauge steel, backer plates at all connection points, and high-quality precision welds. They are guaranteed for life under normal, commercial, and professional use.

Professional Rated Equipment Fit and Finish

Fit and Finish

Aesthetically attractive, Professional Rated elitefts power racks help make a lasting impression. Their design accentuates the uniqueness of your facility.
