Rubber Bumper Weight Plates
Black Bumper plates are the functional pieces that make up barbells. Used with a bar or alone, they are the backbone of many weight lifting routines.
Our range of black bumper plates is a stylish and resilient addition to your studio or home setup.
Buying Rubber Bumper Weight Plates for Your Gym
Bumper plates are an important part of any weightlifting regime. Most bumper plates utilise a rubber coating so you can work out safely without damaging the weights or the floor. Sometimes you might need to drop from overhead, and with dense rubber, you have significantly reduced personal risk. Additionally, if most of your workout is going to focus on lifting, bumper plates are indispensable, especially if you perform exercises like squats or snatches.
Our rubber bumper weight plates are of the highest quality, made with the best materials, and carefully designed. They are available in all kinds of different weight standards, so whatever stage you are at, whether you are just learning about weightlifting or even if you are training for the Olympics, you’ll find what you need in terms of bumper weights. We supply gyms all over Australia with NC Fitness plates – Melbourne, Sydney, Perth, Adelaide, Brisbane and Hobart.
Where to start?
Any good weight trainer knows you must build up to the higher weights. Before you buy your bumper plates, take a moment to think about what kind of weights you are going to need.
Are you investing in weights for a commercial gym, or are you just looking to supplement a new exercise regime? Maybe you’ve got some kids who you want to get into weight training, or maybe you are overcoming an injury and want to build up strength.
Our range starts with our Black Rubber Bumper Plates weighing 5kg each. They can come with or without a funky colour strip and are made of high-quality black virgin rubber. This rubber is incredibly dense compared to some cheaper dense and can bounce dangerously if dropped. These particular weights would be ideal for anyone wanting to learn a bit about technique while building strength or someone getting back into weight training after some time away.
Other sets we sell go up by 5kg at a time.
However, if you buy a complete set and want to save a little money, you don’t have to buy each set separately. We also offer packages.
This includes our Bumper Plates Set, which has a total of 150kg included, and a Barbell. This is made up of the following:
- 2 x 5kg Bumper Plates
- 2 x 10kg Bumper Plates
- 2 x 15kg Bumper Plates

All are made from virgin black rubber which can be either a white or coloured print to identify the different weight classes.
Three key factors to consider:
On most websites, they all look quite similar. But what you really want to know is how well they’ll work and how they’ll look after six months or six years of usage. With so many various sorts of bumper plates flooding the market, comparing them online may be difficult. To assist you in determining which bumpers are appropriate for you, let’s take a look at the three elements described above: materials, construction, and function.
Materials used for Weight Plates
For practical fitness training, Vulcanized, virgin rubber bumper plates are the way to go. That’s where we’ll begin with Virgin rubber bumper plates for functional fitness training.
The colour, quality, and type of the bumper plates are determined by the type of rubber they’re made from. They use fresh rubber that hasn’t been recycled or used before. As a result, there are no polymers, adhesives, or bonds in the base material during production.
Clean, high-quality plates begin with a clean source. The lower grade plates will start as a mélange of industrial chemicals from who knows where. However, don’t mix up this information with recycled rubber plate makeup, which we’ll discuss in a minute. You want virgin rubber plates if you’re searching for high-quality everyday plates.
The second piece of the puzzle is vulcanised rubber, which plays a critical role in high-quality plates. Vulcanised rubber has been chemically bonded by the addition of sulphur, which improves the durability of the chemical chains in the rubber. Consider all of the tough rubber that you encounter daily, such as car tyres, shoe soles, hoses, and so on. The best sort of bumper plate is made of vulcanised rubber, which is what you want in a bumper plate.
Bumper plates made of recycled rubber aren’t the end of the world, either.
However, recycled rubber bumper plates have their place. There are a few advantages: They are ecologically beneficial, and you can frequently use recycled rubber plates for outdoor activities.
Recycled Rubber Bumper Plates are one of the most durable plates available. Because of the recycled rubber shavings and polymer bonding chemicals, they are typically quite dense and have a very low bounce. This is because it includes a combination of recycled rubber shavings and polymer binding agents. To guarantee that the polymer chains link and the connection holds, these materials are combined and pressed for a longer period than most bumpers.
Another point on recyclable rubber bumpers – These materials usually result in damper or quieter-sounding bumper plates. So, if you’re training in an area where the noise of falling bumper plates bothers you and your neighbours, Crumb Rubber Bumper Plates may be the answer.
