Lacertosus® Olympic discs dedicated to Powerlifting, perfect in all cases where an accurate weight and a reduced footprint are required on the barbell.
The Powerlifting Metal Plate range is calibrated with tight weight tolerances, for each size the coloring complies with the international IPF standards making these discs ideal both in training and in competition, perfect in combination with the OB86-EPL barbell specific for Powerlifting and OCP collars -IS.
Our discs are made of cast iron by fusion with the "sand casting" technique, this process allows to obtain a highly resistant body with a microporous surface that significantly increases the grip and durability of the epoxy powder coating.
Thanks to the production process by casting, we have created mono-sided discs with raised edge which guarantees excellent grip during handling, increased thanks to the microporous surface. All this attention has only one purpose: to guarantee your peace of mind during use, with safe and easy to handle discs.
The Powerlifting Metal Plates are made in the standard sizes of PL: 1.25 - 2.5 - 5 - 10 - 15 - 20 - 25 Kg, as per IPF regulation the 20 and 25 kg have an external diameter of 450mm. The whole range is compatible with Olympic barbell bars with a 50mm loading diameter and with OB20 modular dumbbells.
When Powerlifting Metal Plates are used for exercises that involve contact with the ground, such as detachment from the ground, rubberised floors with a minimum thickness of 20mm must be used.
Did you know that?
The epoxy powder painting is also called "fire" or "oven", obtained by sprinkling the discs with colored pigment in the form of powder, thanks to an electrostatic charge the powder adheres firmly to the piece forming a uniform layer. The subsequent passage of the pieces in a special oven melts the dust creating a resistant protective layer that adheres perfectly to the piece. The epoxy paint is particularly resistant to abrasion, impacts and remains beautiful over time, just what you are looking for when you buy discs designed to last a life of intense training.
Have you noticed?
The raised external edge and the microporous surface guarantee a firm and safe grip even in the presence of humidity and sweat; with Powerlifting Metal Plates you can say goodbye to old slippery and dangerous discs!
Thanks to the sand pouring, we have written in relief the size of the discs, indelible indications that are always beautiful over time and also accessible to the blind.
Maybe you didn't know that ...
During Powerlifting competitions the discs must be loaded on the bar according to some rules, including the orientation of the faces of the discs: the first pair on the bar must be inserted with the weight indications facing the inside of the bar, all pairs following must have the indications facing outwards.
The industrial production process of the entire POWERLIFTING METAL PLATE range involves some steps of the sand casting process performed manually by specialized personnel. In particular, the final stages of painting with the hand coloring of the embossed details are skilfully performed by hand individually on each disc: for this reason it is possible the presence of small imperfections that do not affect the quality of the product in any way.
