Once you've opened your dream gym, or perhaps set up a gym in your home, you'll need a place to store all the equipment. Ideally in a way that saves as much space as possible so you can exercise in an organised and safe environment. There are many cases of people placing a plate on the bench, only to have it fall on their leg after a careless movement. And let's be honest - I'm sure you also find it much easier to practice when you don't have to wade through a pile of metal, but find everything neatly in its place on the rack.

If you're not working out with fixed weight bars, where the weights are attached permanently, but with barbells on which the individual weights are placed, you'll definitely start to accumulate plates in the gym. Five-kilogram ones for your shoulders, ten-kilogram ones for your biceps, and once you're trying to beat your deadlift record, the weights quickly add up. There are many different ways to store equipment, but we definitely recommend special racks for dumbbell plates, because as mentioned above - safety comes first.

Any proper DIYer can probably make their own weight plate rack at home. Unfortunately, it can easily happen that such a home-made rack fails under the weight of the heavy plates that are placed on it every day. However, our racks are made of solid steel that can withstand the strain of even the heaviest plates, making them perfectly safe.

At StrongGear, we offer several disc storage options. Perhaps the most popular are the large, tree-shaped racks for dumbbell plates - individual plates can be placed on a total of six spikes that lead from the central vertical bar. This type offers a large amount of storage space. All the spikes together are 190 cm long, so you can for example load 27 classic 10 kg StrongGear bumper plates and 45 1.5 kg fractional plates. And that's some impressive stock! The bottom four spikes are designed to hold classic 5 to 25 kg plates, while the top two are designed to hold fractional plates.

Another option is a small plate rack that has only one vertical bar on which the individual weights are directly placed from top to bottom. The greatest advantage of this type of rack is the unrivalled space saving it offers. You can stack up to 13 pieces of 25 kg racing bumper plates with a total weight of 325 kg on the rack, easily saving a lot of space for other equipment. However, if you don't like the idea of the plate you need at the moment lying at the very bottom of the stack, the large stand is definitely a better choice for you. 

The biggest enthusiasts can then treat themselves to a real specialty with us in the form of a mobile weight rack. The sturdy steel construction is incredibly durable and the stand itself can hold plates of various sizes from the weight of 0.5 to 50 kg. The plastic wheels and raised rubberised handle then ensure that when you want to load your plates on the other side of the gym, you won't have to carry one weight after another to do it.
