The NEXO Commercial Urethane Bumpers are made from a high-density urethane material that is extremely durable and long-lasting. Urethane is a synthetic polymer that is known for its resistance to abrasion, impact, and chemicals, making it the perfect material for bumper plates. Unlike regular rubber bumper plates, which can become brittle over time and can crack or chip when dropped, urethane bumper plates can withstand repeated drops and impacts without showing signs of wear and tear. This makes them perfect for use in high-intensity training environments such as CrossFit boxes, powerlifting gyms, and Olympic weightlifting facilities.
One of the key advantages of urethane bumper plates over rubber plates is their ability to withstand extreme temperatures and changes in weather conditions without losing their shape or performance. They are also more resistant to fading and discoloration, which means that they will maintain their vibrant color for a longer period of time.
Another benefit of urethane bumper plates is that they are much quieter than regular rubber plates when dropped. This is because the urethane material absorbs the impact of the drop, reducing the amount of noise that is generated. This makes them ideal for use in shared spaces, such as apartment buildings or hotels, where noise levels need to be kept to a minimum.
Finally, urethane bumper plates are also more eco-friendly than rubber plates, as they do not contain any harmful chemicals or toxins. This means that they are safer for the environment and for the people who use them.
