IM1500 Half Rack Weight Lifting System

Do you want to train with free weights but need a rack that will hold everything and do it safely at home? Train like a CrossFit athlete with the IM1500 Half Rack Weight Lifting System. Ideal for both home and light commercial gyms, this heavy-duty half rack allows you to train harder with your standard or Olympic bars.

Packed with unique features

Although the IM1500 Half Rack Weight Lifting System is not a full power rack, it offers a lot of unique features that allow you to train like never before. Included in this system are as follows:

  • Main frame with built-in chin-up bar
  • 8 weight plate storage bars with Olympic adapters to suit both standard and Olympic weights
  • Bar storage on each side
  • Double upper hooks with bar protection pads
  • Lower spotting arms with high-strength nylon bar protection pads to prevent damaging your bars
  • 4 adjustable power band pegs for higher-level training with power resistance bands
  • Numbered upright holes with 2” spacing for easier adjustment
  • 2 vertical bar storage positions

Heavy-duty construction for your safety

We designed the IM1500 in such a way that you will never have to worry about your safety especially if you are working out at home alone.

  1. Solid steel frame. The IM1500 is made of a solid 60mm (2.5”) structural steel frame with 11 gauge steel uprights and supports with black powder coating for the ultimate durability, strength and protection against wear and tear. The frame weighs 210 lbs.
  2. 1,000 lb capacity. Its massive load rating allows it to hold multiple bars and plates of various weights and sizes so you can lift as much weight as you can without worrying about the rack breaking apart.
  3. Strong and secure parts. Sturdy double bar hooks plus spotting arms that extend 14” provide you with the confidence and safety you need for heavy lifts. The secure design of our rack allows you to use your suspension straps and ab straps with no worries.
  4. No need for a spotter. This rack has double upper hooks and spotting arms so you can safely put down the bar in between rests on your own.
  5. Rubber feet with bolt down option. The unit comes with attached rubber feet that can be bolted down to the floor for added stability and enhanced safety.
  6. 10-year warranty. We offer a limited 10-year warranty to the original purchaser of this product for home use only.
  7. 30-day money back guarantee. On top of our warranty, we’ve put together a 100% money-back guarantee policy. We are confident that the IM1500 Half Rack Weight Lifting System will help you achieve your desired results, but we’ll return your money should you find it unsatisfactory.

Perform a wide variety of exercises

Investing in our IM1500 Half Rack Weight Lifting System will add variety to your workout routine. Now you can do intense supersets, compound exercises, and isolation movements at the comfort of your own home.

  • Break your routine. Add more challenging movements to your otherwise garden-variety routine and improve your overall flexibility, muscle tone, and endurance. With the IM1500, you can do:
    • bench press
    • chin ups
    • deadlifts
    • hanging leg raises
    • pull ups
    • shoulder press
    • shrugs
    • squats
    • other frame-supported lifts
  • Flexible. Our Olympic adapters give you the freedom to lift a standard barbell one day, and Olympic barbell the next without the fuss.
  • Benefit from resistance bands. The adjustable power band pegs offer you advanced weight training capabilities using your resistance bands.

Compact and user-friendly

The IM1500 has a compact footprint so you can easily fit it in a room with limited floor space like your garage, spare room, or even the corner of your living area. It also includes convenient features to give you more efficient workouts.

  • Small footprint. The IM1500 only measures 51″ x 51″ x 84.5″ high. We recommend allotting a minimum floor space of 7’ W x 5′ D  for ease of use.
  • Fits regular barbells. Compatible for standard barbells as this rack features bar hooks with a 48.25″ outside width and a 43.25″ inside width.
  • Reversible hooks and arms. The included bar hooks and spotting arms may be used on the outside or inside of the main frame.
  • Plenty of storage. Use the 8 built-in weight storage bars to keep your weight plates organized. Note: Bumper plates can also be stored but due to the size, you can only use 3 of the levels.


This is the base unit only which includes the main frame, Olympic plate storage, bar hooks and spotting arms. Super Bench, bars and weights shown in the photos are sold separately.

    This rack is amazing. I have both the IM2000 and this one. I originally was only going to get the IM2000, but some gym goers expressed an interested in working out in my garage instead of the gym we all go to due to COVID concerns. Both racks are amazing and this one is no slouch next to the IM2000. Just as versatile except for the pully systems and self spotting systems. Price is awesome and this thing can hold a lot of weight. I’m confident that this thing will remain solid though all my workout routines. Mine came with a bit of rust on it that caused the paint to bubble and flake in a thumb sized area, but customer service was quick to send out some touch up. After sanding, painting, and buffing it looks like there was never an issue. If you’re in the market for a rack you will not go wrong with Ironmaster. Keep up the good work, guys!

    This thing is solid and built like a tank! For a half rack I am impressed! I would recommend getting a package deal with the accessories: ultimate chin up attachment, dip handles and landmine. You won’t be disappointed! It comes with it’s own chin up bar but the optional ultimate chin up attachment is a game changer for it’s versatility, so this was a must have for me. It’s the same one you see on the IM2000 but make sure you select the one for this model not the IM2000. This rack is compact but at the same time there’s plenty of room inside and even allows me to tuck my dumbbell spotting stand in there when not in use. The numbered uprights makes adjusting the bar hooks and spotter arms much faster during workouts. Not that big of deal but definitely helps lining them up right during the first attempt. Shipping was fast just like everything else I’ve ordered from this company. Their customer service is great! I’ve only had the IM1500 for a couple of months now but so far loving everything about it. It’s solid and sturdy all around. I’m able to get the most out of my workouts from home. Very pleased with this purchase.

    Purchased the IM1500 Half Rack Pkg B in February 2018 with an additional four 45 pnd plates and a curl bar – this included the IM1500 Half Rack.

    First and foremost, I love the aesthetics, the welds and the feel of the setup overall. I purchased this for myself and my wife. At 6″5 260 pounds and my wife at 5″10 160 pounds we both love having our own home gym which makes it super effortless to get in 5-7 days of working out a week – even a little 30 minute circuit on days where we can’t squeeze much in. We would recommend buying this if you are lifting between 100-500 pounds. If you are lifting more than that I would recommend moving up to a full rack or bolting it into the concrete (we have not because rental).

    Hooks – The hooks are suffering normal wear and tear but they seem to be holding up. With such a big height difference between my wife and I the double hook features make it possible for both of us to workout at the same time. Not sure if this was the intended purpose but it is definitely for us.
    Safety Bars – My wife loves these. They’re an adequate length and allow her to lift when I’m not home or am busy working while she works out.
    Metal pegs – These are intended for bands and to be honest I haven’t used it yet.
    Pullup Bar – These have been great. For warmups I’ve been using bands tied around the center beam and my wife has been doing deadhangs. The only issue for me is my height so I need to lift my legs but I’m used to it.

    Stability – I can still move it with the 400-500 pounds of weight on it and tilt it. It is sturdy though and doesn’t move on the rubber puzzle pieces we’re keeping it on now. It was also easy to re-position as we didn’t like where we put it originally (uneven floors by roughly 1 degree). Don’t forget to go back and recheck the bolts every few months to make sure nothing is loose.
    Assembly – Easy to assemble with the correct tools and one other person given that at least one of you is competent and can follow instructions. Ratchet wrench, a tub of grease and some standard wrenches made for quick work. With the added grease we should be fine to disassemble and reassemble at a later date in the south Florida humidity.
    Delivery – Quick delivery from WA to FL. The only thing I wish was getting more notice than ~30 minutes as couldn’t schedule work off.
    Aesthetics – Looks great. Comes with a hat and few decals for the equipment or car or where ever.

    All in all, the customer service (thanks Matt & Scott) has been fantastic and the gym is holding up to a 7 day a week regiment. I would definitely recommend buying this and at the price tag I think it is well worth it. I was paying $20-$50 per month for my wife and I to use commercial gyms over the last ~10 years on and off and the ability to play music, lift and have fun working out on our back patio has been well worth the investment. In 2-3 years we will be making our money back.

    We plan on buying more plates (10pnds, 35 pnds) and other accessories as time goes on.

    Cheers and happy lifting,

    I purchased the IM1500 about 6 months ago in a package deal that included the Ironmaster Super Bench and an Ironmaster Olympic weight set and bar. I have been using them since I received them and my workouts have never been more productive or consistent then they have with this Ironmaster Equipment. I received my order quickly and everything was there. The assembly of the IM1500 was straight forward and went quickly. I could go on forever about the quality of this stuff. Thanks Ironmaster!

    Great Rack. Heavy Duty.
    I researched for a while and finally I bought this rack based on reviews alone and I’m not disappointed. I wanted a gym quality rack that was heavy enough to not move when racking. This rack is very solid and stable. Doesn’t take up too much space, and is just short enough to fit in my spare bedroom. I got the adjustable dumbells and bench also. Everything is top notch. The bench is solid. The dumbells are amazing. Couldn’t ask for a better set up.

    Extremely happy
    I don’t know why there aren’t more reviews on here for this rack so I am leaving one. I love this thing, it’s the nicest piece of equipment I have ever owned and it’s super heavy duty and well made. I could not be happier with it. Even the pictures don’t do it justice, this is gym quality for sure in my opinion. It was easy to put together and super solid once you’re done.

    Ironmaster Products = Great investment
    Back in 2003, I purchased a more expensive model of this bench from Ironmaster. It still works perfectly and looks brand new while being used in my garage. Don’t waste your time and money buying other cages or half racks. You don’t need to look any further. This is one of the best buys I’ve ever made in my life. Seriously, if every product was Ironmaster quality we would all be much wealthier. $$

    Super strong and feels safe
    This cage feels indestructible – it is extremely well made and pairs perfectly with the Ironmaster bars and Super Bench. The fact that this cage does not need to be bolted to the ground, yet still maintains sturdiness, is great for my home gym setup. I can complete squats, chin ups, dead lifts, and more without worrying about my safety on this machine.
