Safety Tips for Using Free-Standing Ballet Barres

If you’re looking for a great way to improve your flexibility and tone muscles, ballet could just be the ticket. When using free-standing ballet barres in your workout routine, there are a few things you should keep in mind in order to ensure your safety while doing so.

When choosing a material, barres made from structural steel barres will be the sturdiest, while most of the thin-gauge aluminum, PVC plastic and wood alternatives can't quite compare. Even the sturdiest barres can have safety issues, however

If finished poorly, they can stain the hands, pass germs and bacteria along, or become hard to grip. Painting is not a long-term solution, chipping off easily and often coming off in small amounts on hands and legs.  Buying units with a powder coated finish will also help prevent rust and make them easier to clean as well.  All Boss Ballet Barres are fully powder coated in a controlled facility, providing years of a germ-resistant, durable and clean finish.

It’s important to check the edges of a ballet barre in order to make sure they are smooth or capped on the end. This can help you avoid getting poked by sharp edges, and can ensure that children will not bump into them and possibly become injured.  With no square edges, all of our barres avoid this issue entirely.

The feet should NOT be made from rubber when choosing a portable barre. Although rubber feet can help to hold the barre in position on certain surfaces, they can also cause marks to form on the floor beneath.  Using a proprietary polyurethane material, our barre feet are made to be durable and non-marking, regardless of the surface, but especially on expensive dance flooring.

By choosing the right ballet barre, you can ensure your workout will be safe and fun for years to come. For the best selection of ballet barres anywhere around, contact us.
