FRAME MATERIALS: All Legend Fitness equipment is CAD drawn and machined to a minimum tolerance of +/- .030 inches. Construction is primarily of 3×3-inch 11 gauge, 2×4-inch 11 gauge, and 3×2-inch 11 gauge steel tubing. A combination of other heavy structural tubular steel sizes is also used. All have an ASTM rating of A500 and A513 1008/1010.
CONSTRUCTION: Legend Fitness equipment features all-welded construction whenever possible. This is done by inert-gas MIG welding to conform with and in accordance with the following codes and/or standards:
- 3.1 AWS
- A3.0 Welding Terms and Definitions
- 3.2 AWS D1.1-81 Structural Welding Code-Steel
- 3.2 AWS D9.1 Specifications.
FRAME FINISH: Each piece of Legend Fitness equipment is prepared both mechanically and chemically for powder-coating. This process includes a high-temperature, high-pressure iron phosphate wash to ensure optimum adhesion of the electrostatically applied TGIC polyester powder. This is an engineered powder that is scuff resistant and long wearing. The coating is then baked at 400 degrees Far. and carefully monitored to ensure complete curing.
Technical summaries are determined using 3.0 – 5.0 mil powder film over iron-phosphated, pretreated steel using and conforming with the following test methods:
- ASTM B5965-96, C
- ASTM D 3451-93, 13
- UL DTOV2 organic coatings.
PADDING AND UPHOLSTERY: The padding material on Legend Fitness upholstered items is 2″ thick rebond foam meeting ASTM 1692 and MVSS302 standards for flammability. Foam density is 8 lbs. per cubic foot. Upholstery is 32 oz. Sulfide-stain resistant “Naugahyde” formulated to meet small scale flammability test requirements contained in Federal Standard 191A (CCC-A-680 a). All pads are top double-stitched. Foam is glued to a 3/4-inch-thick support board, then trimmed to fit exactly. Corners are radiused and edges are chamfered on both top and bottom to promote comfort and durability.
BEARINGS: Input and movement arms on Legend Fitness equipment rotate with either non-friction roller bearings with a Basic Radial Load Rating of 2420 pounds, contained in a custom cast and machined housing or a self-lubricating bronze bushing in a machined steel housing to provide smooth movement and precise alignment.
WEIGHT TRANSPORT: Legend Fitness uses 3/16″ diameter aircraft cable with a 7 by 19 construction and black nylon coating. Our cables are rated at a breaking strength of 3100 pounds.
PULLEYS: Our pulleys are 4 1/2″ diameter fiberglass-impregnated nylon with a precision fit cable groove and 6203 double sealed non-friction roller bearings.
WEIGHT PLATES: All Legend Fitness selectorized equipment features solid steel weight stack plates with a black finish. Self-aligning, low-friction sleeve bearings surround the guide rods on every weight stack plate.
SPRING SUSPENSION: Heavy duty die cast springs are used under weight stacks on Legend Fitness selectorized equipment to reduce shock and vibration stresses.
GUIDE RODS: All guide rods are solid steel and hard chrome plated to ensure quiet operation and low friction movement.
LANYARD PINS: All Legend Fitness selectorized equipment features weight stack pins that connected to the weight stack with a coiled, self-storing cord. This helps prevent pin removal or loss.
FASTENERS: All bolts meet ANSI B18.3 specifications.
HANDGRIPS: 45 durometer rubber handgrips are used for comfort, safety and durability.
