ALPHA Sandwich J-Cups
Our Alpha Sandwich Hooks are manufactured from 3/8” plate and ¼” Canadian milled steel. They feature a 1” block of UHMW that acts as a backboard for when you re-rack your barbell. The slanted backboard can also function as a guide for your standard calve raises.
note: only compatible with our 3x3” Alpha series racks
Why would I choose these over regular j-cups you ask? If eye catching stainless logo plates and sheer size isn’t enough, then here are a few common problems you may run into with a regular j-cup that could push you into making the switch.
RE-RACKING TOO LOW
With a regular j-cup setup there may come a time when you miss your re-rack and come in low, with our fully protected design you will only be hitting the UHMW insert, where as on a regular j-cup that would be steel.
The thin profile of our Alpha sandwich j-cups measures 1.5" wide, this gives you more room for side-to-side play when racking your barbell. That puts you at far less risk of hitting the shoulder of the bar on the j-cups as you rack the bar as you glance to your side to see if you are centered on the rack or not (we’ve all been there). The end result of this sleek design is an added 1” of transverse space to play with on either side of your barbell collars.
We also offer custom logo branding and colors on our sandwich cups that can be paired with our IFS Banners to give your gym a unique and personalized look to your facility or home gym!
