Safety squat bar

This is my very first post.
Like most of you here, I also have small gym in my house.
The question is :
I will try to construct safety squat and trap bar, so I need to know will ordinary metal (steel) bars be sufficient and precisely do i need special metal material like inox or stainless steel or something for this bars.
Any info on welding? Has someone already built these bars (squat bar)?
Thanks!

Re: Safety squat bar

The problem is that there is no shipment of these bars to Croatia, where I live. So I have to weld some metal bars...
By safety squat bar I mean :

Re: Safety squat bar

You don't need stainless steel, but you do need decent steel for this. Look at the PSI ratings that other companies use. For example Bigger Faster Stronger's cheapest bar has a yield strength of 105,000 - 125,000 PSI. If you are building things yourself it is always good to overengineer.
