Squat Rack Database
If you notice a rack that I’m missing that you’d like to see added, or especially if you spot a mistake in the database – please contact me so that I can get it fixed asap. (Note: I do not update the database for sales)
*An asterisk next to the dimensions means there are multiple length (more accurately depth) options. I will always include the biggest option when it comes to length/depth. Please see the product page for other options. Multiple height options will be listed separately in the database.
About The Guide (FAQ)
Leaving a category blank will cause the database to ignore that category completely.
Some racks are in the database twice (or even three times) because they have multiple height options. Each height option is listed separately.
This is not a database of “my favorite” racks. If you like, you can check out my Best Squat Racks for a Home Gym in 2022 which I put together from the voting results of almost 400 members of Reddit R/Homegym.
Buying Guide Categories
Pretty self-explanatory. What brand, aka company, makes the rack. The database currently holds squat racks from Titan, Bells of Steel, Rogue and Rep Fitness.
Rack Name/Product Page
The rack model. This text is linkable directly to the rack’s product page.
How much the rack costs. (the regular price)
I will not be updating this database to try to include sales. That would be a full time job in unto itself, especially with how often some companies like to have sales.
This also gets a little bit tricky because of the amount of customization and available add-ons that some racks have. I have tried my best to list the base price, not including any add-ons, for all of the racks.
The height, width and the length/depth of the rack. (in that order H x W x L)
If a rack has multiple options for height, I put both options as separate entries into the database. I could be wrong, but this made the most since to me since height minimum and maximum are filters in the search.
So, if you have a specific height requirement you’re looking for, your search may filter out one of the options and show the other.
If a rack has multiple lengths/depths, then I’ll place as asterisk next to the dimension results. You can then click through to see the other depth if you’re interested in that rack.
Note: I’ll always list the largest length/depth that the rack offers.
The listed weight capacity that the company provides for their rack. This is the input that you’ll see empty most often because many brands do not list weight capacities for at least some of their racks.
I AM NOT GUARANTEEING THE WEIGHT CAPACITY LISTED. I am simply passing on the information being provided by each company themselves.
The dimensions of the actual uprights (the beams) of the rack.
The most common sizes are:
- 2″ x 2″
- 2″ x 3″
- 3″ x 3″
3″ x 3″ is thought of by many (including myself) as the gold standard when it comes to squat rack frame size.
The thickness of the steel of the rack uprights. Keep in mind the lower the gauge number, the thicker the steel.
11 gauge is widely considered the gold standard for squat racks.
The spacing of the holes of the rack (where attachments like J-Hooks are inserted). This is measured as the center of one hole to the center of the next hole.
This is specific to the front facing rack holes. Sometimes the holes on the side facing beams could have entirely different spacing setups.
Common spacing is 1″, 2″ and ‘Westside’.
Westside hole spacing is where holes are spaced 1″ apart center to center through the pull and bench area and 2″ apart at the other areas.
What is the diameter of the hardware that fits the holes of the rack. Important to know for rack attachment compatibility.
The two most common sizes are 5/8″ and 1″.
Is the rack able to be bolted down. This doesn’t mean the rack needs to be bolted down or whether or not the company recommends that the rack is bolted down.
This is merely whether or not you have the option to do so if you choose.
I hope this squat rack buying guide database proves to be as helpful as I think it might.
If so, share the love and pass it along to someone else who may need it!
