About Power Racks
The Power Rack is also known as a Power Cage, Squat Cage or Squat Rack.
Not to be confused with a half cage or half rack. It is a four-pillar rectangular box that functions as a substitute to a human spotter for free weight barbell exercises, seated, standing or lying down that include: Bench Press, Squats, Overhead Press, Rack Lockout, Rack Pull, Barbell Shrug, Inverted row, Barbell Bent over Row, Barbell curls. Beside the four pillars that come predrilled or punched with adjustment holes, the rack will generally include a pair of barbell lift-offs and a pair of safeties. The lift offs are placed at a height appropriate for the exercise with the safeties placed in a predetermined position to let the user escape the weights and bar should they fatigue or fail to complete the movement of the exercise. Most modern power racks come equipped with a chinning/pull-up bar.

Many of these are found in multi-use commercial facilities and are mounted per manufacturer specification, usually by a professional installer.
