Weightlifting Platforms are an essential part of your fitness equipment when performing Olympic lifts. They are designed to help protect your Bumper plates, bar and floor when being dropping/dumping from a height. Even though this is what the weightlifting platforms are designed to do it is important to control the bar so it is an even drop. A controlled even drop is when both weight plates land at the same time, minimising damage to both your plates and bar.  It is also advisable to guide the bar down and not ‘throw it away’ from the top of the lift. The Weightlifting Platforms we supply and recommend at Renouf fitness Equipment is the Rated® brand which are made TUFF to take a hammering from repeated heavy drops and at the same time helping to protect your bars, plates and floors from potential damage. They are constructed using high quality rubber giving 45mm of cushioning and a 2000mm x 1000mm x 15mm ply wood centreboard which offers a spacious work area. The 15mm thick centerboard is finished in a low sheen sealer to minimize slipping and to help protect the board from scuffs and soiling. The four-sided Steel tube frame is bolted together with over lapping corner sections to hold all parts securely in place and includes four metal tabs to prevent the centreboard from warping. If moving of the weightlifting platforms is required it’s a simple process to disassemble for convenient relocation. The Renouf Fitness Equipment staff will be more than happy to talk you through all our products and options.
