A common question we are asked is " Why is this beam so much more than your 8ft beams". The reason for the cost difference is the beams weight, construction method and cost to ship. This beam weighs 140 lbs vs 42lbs for our 8ft beams. Because we have a longer span between the beam legs the beam must be much stronger and a different construction method and additional materials are used. The weight capacity also increases to 300 lbs. Because of the length of the beam it must be shipped with a freight carrier as opposed to FedEx or UPS and this substantially increases the cost to ship. It is shipped in a large wooden crate to eliminate damage.
This Combo includes the following items:
- Elite Advanced Training High Bar with Leg Extensions
- High Bar Folding Mat - 4' x 8' x 2" ,
- 10ft Balance Beam with Raised Metal Legs,
- Beam Center Folding Mat 4' x 8' x 2" ,
The beam is available in fixed heights of 12", 18", 24" and an adjustable height, 15"- 30" Leg that adjusts every 3 inches.
The beam is made using cross-grain laminated wood construction. This gives the beam its strength and prevents warping or twisting. No center support is needed. The core is planed and sanded to the competition oval beam shape. Our beams are built as close as possible to competition beams for a realistic training experience. This includes padding, covering, and shape.
Beginners' Velcro Grips
The padding is closed cell polyethylene foam. The same padding that is used on competition beams. It is covered with heavy-grade synthetic suede material. The material is durable and easy to clean. The work surface is 4 in. wide.
The support braces are 24 in. wide and made of 12 gauge structural steel with rubber end caps to protect the flooring beneath. This will make a great practice beam.
To order our Beginner Grips, take a measurement, in inches, from the wrist to the base of the fingers.

FOLDING PANEL MATS
All of our folding mats are designed and manufactured with the best materials available. We don't make different quality mats such as "regular" and "firm". All of our mats will be what other companies sell as their best "firm" mat. We use 18 oz. vinyl coated nylon (heavy vinyl) for the cover.
We reinforce all wear points such as corners. Our mat tops don't have any sewed seams except along the edges. We use 2" thick polyethylene foam. You can also choose any color for your mats, so if you're getting tired of everything being blue, brighten up your gym with pink or purple. All of the available colors match our beams!
Strength - Wood core with a weight capacity of 300lbs. No center support is needed and this allows a mat to slide underneath the beam. We use almost twice as much wood in our beam as our nearest competitor. The beam won’t flex or bend when doing leaps or jumps.
Padding - We use the same padding as competition beams. This gives a realistic feeling on her feet and makes it easy to go from a training beam to a competition beam.
Cover - Heavy grade suede. Provides excellent durability and great non-slip traction.
Shape - Our beams have curved sides just like competition beams. This will affect her hand grip and provides a more realistic training experience.
Reinforced Ends - This is where most of the wear occurs on beams. This feature will greatly extend the life of your beam
Warranty - All of our beams come with a two-year transferrable warranty.
Safety - All of our beam designs have been tested. Support braces are made of steel with rubber pads. Custom matting is available to go all the way around the beam. We manufacture the Strongest and Safest training High Bar in the world!>p
We manufacture the best training bar in the world!
Made in the USA
Our bars are manufactured by The Beam Store, not a third party or in China. This allows us the greatest degree of quality control. We oversee the entire manufacturing process from the initial metal cutting to the final packaging.
In our re-designed Elite High Bar, we have added an additional stabilizer cross brace to the frame.
We have added two additional locking screws on the adjustable arms. These keep the telescoping arms that adjust in height from wobbling when in use.
We use an all-welded design. We use welding as much as possible in the frame while still allowing the bar to be shipped using small package carriers like FedEx or UPS to ship. This provides a stronger, safer, and more stable bar for your child.
The recommended weight capacity of The Beam Store Elite Training Bar is 150 lbs. This can be increased if desired by placing a sheet of plywood or MDF in the center of the frame.
What makes The Beam Store Elite Training High Bar the strongest also makes it the safest. We use heavy-gauge steel combined with all-welded construction combined with redundant strength bracing combined with convenient features like lockout Pull Pins and height locking screws.
