This platform is meant only for use with the included inset, which is an extension of the platform that fits inside a power rack. We have another version of the platform without the inset.
This platform is made for doing cleans, snatches and deadlifts. Using a high quality lifting platform means that users are lifting on a perfectly flat and safe surface. The increase in confidence that provides means that it's only a matter of lifting the weight that's holding them back.
6 Coats of Polyurethane - Maximum protection of the oak and logo, along with a smooth but non-slippery surface.
12-Gauge Steel Frame - This surrounds the sides of the platform to keep the edges from being damaged. The rear portion of the platform where the inset fits is not framed.
19mm thick, 41" wide Solid Red Oak covers a 25mm MDF board. The two layers sandwich a membrane between them, minimizing the chance of warping.
27" wide Rubber Matting is laid flush with the oak on both sides.
Size - All platforms are 8ft wide, so it's only a question of length. 8ft long is the best so that you have plenty of room to drop the weight in front of and behind you. But if you're tight on space, the 6ft works too. The 4ft is fine for deadlifts.
Custom Logo - Your logo is applied prior to varnishing. If you don't want a custom logo, the York Barbell logo will be applied as pictured. Or if you prefer, the York logo can be on the underside so that it is not visible.
Ramp - Roll your bench on and off the platform with ease.
An inset is included. The inset is the piece that extends the platform to fit inside your York STS rack. The steel frame wraps around the entire main platform except where the inset butts against it. (We have another version of the platform with no inset that is entirely enclosed by the steel frame)
#54250 - 67.25" deep, for the STS Multi-Function Rack, STS Power Rack and one side of the STS Triple Combo Rack.
#54252 - 38" deep, for the STS Half Rack.
#54253 - 21.75" deep, for the STS Double Half Rack and one side of the STS Triple Combo Rack.
For the York STS Triple Combo Rack you'll want to buy two platforms to fit the different sized racks on either end, one with the #54250 inset and one with the #54253 inset.
Non-York racks can work with this. Just measure the inside space of your rack, being conscious of any bolts that stick out. All insets are 42" wide.
