I am in process of getting a Power Cage fabricated for me. Even though they are available in nearby market for approx USD 300 (INR 14500) for capacity 1100 LBS (500 kgs), I cannot afford it and I am short of money. I have sourced some pictures from the one that are available in market and discussed it with my fabricator yesterday. He did some of his calculations and after some negotiations with him, I got him down to USD 150 (INR 7000). I hope I can get him down further as I have to get some Fabrication work done for my home also, but that is a different issue.
I was considering the design factors that I will be utilizing for manufacturing of the cage.
Size of Cage: Height : 7 Feet, Width : 4 Feet, Depth : 3 Feet
Material of Construction: MS Rectangular Pipe: 5” X 2”, Gauge thickness: 12-14 (I.e. 2.7 mm to 2 mm)
Pull Ups Bar: Hollow Pipe of suitable thickness
Please provide inputs on the safety rod diameter, Spacing to be maintained between the safety rod racking holes (I hope 4" spacing should be enough).
Any other inputs on design correction would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
This looks like a good cage, btw Atlas Power Rack
