Samson Equipment is confident that when it comes to customizing the tools for strength training facilities at the high school, collegiate, and professional levels, the competition simply does not stack up.
“Due to our superior product quality, design, customer service, and integrity, Samson Equipment has withstood the test of time for 30 years while many competitors have come and gone,” states Samson Equipment on its website.
Below, “The Samson Comparison” provides seven reasons how Samson Equipment continues to outshine and outlast other manufacturers on the market.
- High Quality Steel
While competitors typically use 11-gauge square tubing or even as thin as 14-18 gauge, Samson uses seven-gauge square tubing that measures 3” x 3” x .188.” According to Samson Equipment, “the numbers will tell you Samson steel is much thicker, weighs much more per foot, and therefore is much more durable than the competition.”
- Sealed Ball Bearings
Precision ground lineal ball bearings, that are available in 1”, 1.25”, and 1.5” diameters, provide a smoother ride than bushings, which are commonly used by other brands. “Samson bearings are 1437% more expensive than comparable size bronze bushings,” according to Samson Equipment. “They simply beat the competitor’s bushings in performance and durability—lasting longer, rotating smoother, and carrying an eight-year warranty.”
- Durable Upholstery
Samson uses 40-ounce texhyde premier vinyl, which it claims is “simply the best,” and provides a variety of color choices for the ultimate customization and display of team pride. “The expanded back and thickness is what makes it #SamsonStrong, unlike the 18-28-ounce fleece-backed competition. The specs don’t lie!,” Samson Equipment states on its website. “Samson also goes the extra mile by double stitching and rounding off the corners!”
- Heavy Duty Stainless Steel
All Samson adjustable parts are made of 2” x 2” stainless steel and polished to a bright, mirror-like finish. “Because of its lifetime durability, all Samson equipment now features this stainless steel on all adjustable pieces,” according to Samson Equipment. “The Samson finish is forever, unlike chrome plating, which will eventually chip.”
- Super Dense Padding
Samson Equipment uses what they describe as “super dense, closed cell neoprene—not just inexpensive open cell foam.” This is because closed cell neoprene’s quality is far superior to that of foam. “The price of closed cell neoprene can be up to 800% more, which means higher quality for you and a longer life for your equipment,” states Samson Equipment on its website.
- Powder Coat
“All Samson equipment is sandblasted and powder coated,” according to Samson Equipment. “Samson uses the Sure Coat Powder Coating system, which is the best powder coating system available.”
- Durable, Solid Oak
A three-quarter inch solid tongue and groove red oak is sanded to a “Samson-standard” four times to ensure smoothness. It is then coated a “Samson-minimum” of four times with a self-leveling polyurethane for a basketball court-like finish. “The final Samson finish is priceless,” states Samson Equipment on its website.
