What is galvanization and how is it beneficial for my pull-up rig?
Get RX'd Builder® rigs now come in galvanized versions designed to withstand the elements. Hot-dip galvanization means your rig is protected from corrosion from the inside out, making this the best rig for outdoor use.
Check out the 4' x 6' rig we designed for competitive athlete Jenn Jones! As a Texas resident, Jenn is no stranger to the heat and humidity, so it's especially important for her equipment to be able to last through the long Texas summers.

Why is galvanization better for rust resistance than powder coat?
Powder coat is sprayed onto metals in a spray booth. Since powder coating is sprayed, there is no way to powder coat the insides of the metal. Galvanization is the process of immersing steel in a bath of molten zinc to produce a corrosion-resistant, multi-layered coating of zinc-iron alloy and zinc metal. While the steel is immersed in the zinc, a metallurgical reaction occurs between the iron in the steel and the molten zinc. This produces a more rust and weather-resistant coat on not only the outside of the metal but on the inside as well.
Will the entire rig be galvanized?
The key pieces that make up a Builder® rig come in a galvanized version. These pieces are: 9' and 12' upright tubes, 4' and 6' cross bars, 4’ and 6‘ monkey bars. Some accessories are also available in galvanized, including salmon ladder cups and A-hangers. Shop galvanized Builder® Rig accessories here.
Can I customize the color of a galvanized rig?
At the moment Galvanized Builder® rigs only come in the standard galvanized ("silver") color.
