Pullup Bar construction

I've noticed alot of affiliates use floor flanges to secure their pullup bars into the floor and walls. How are your PU bars holding up? Any issue with vibration causing the holes in cinder block to widen or crack? And finally, what type of hardware are you using to secure your set ups to the wall and floor?

Rob,

Mine has held up quite fine via the flanges secured by lag screws to the ceiling studs. No sway on the bar or widening of the holes so far.

Yours are wood mounted are they not? As opposed to cement/cinder block mounted.

Thanks for catching that. They are wood mounted but previously they were mounted in masory and held up fine for the time they were there.

Re: Pullup Bar construction

I attached the pull-up bars for our gym to wood. It is much easier than trying to drill through and attach to cement. However, at work we had no choice. What we did to make it work was use cement anchors that expand as you tighten them in conjuction with really strong adhesive designed for cement. We got everything at Home Depot. It seems to be holding up ok.
