SF-XF9925 Frame Construction
The Sunny SF-XF9925 power zone power cage features a heavy-duty frame made of 14-gauge, 2″ x 2″ steel tubing. All bars in its construction come coated with a durable, corrosion-resistant, and chip-resistant paint finish. The base bars and the unit’s upright pillars are black, while the chinning bar assembly, the safety bars, and the j-hooks are red.
The cage is not extremely large. However, it’s not exactly the best fit for 6-foot barbells. So it’s for use with 7-foot bars. With all the parts assembled, it is approximately 50.4″ (128 cm) deep and 65.1″ (165 cm) wide (with the storage pegs attached). So it is pretty spacious inside.
The front-to-back distance between the two upright pillars of the cage is 24″ (61 cm), while the inner width (left-to-right) is approx—42″ (106.6 cm). Thus, the rack’s outside width, without considering the weight of the storage pegs or the elastic band pegs, is ~46″ (116 cm).
The cage’s height with the chinning bar assembly attached to the highest position is approx—83″ (210 cm). Thus, the cage would fit in a room with a 7-foot (214 cm) ceiling.
However, it would be a very tight fit, and you won’t get any clearance above it to execute chin-up and pull-up exercises correctly. Therefore, placing and using this power cage in a room with at least an 8-foot ceiling height (244 cm) is advisable.
The cage’s upright bars feature 18 vertical adjustment holes for the attachment of the safety bars and j-hooks. It’s important to note that these holes are 3/4″ (1.9 cm) in diameter, not the 1″ (2.5 cm) standard. Therefore, you cannot use standard attachments for them.
The Sunny SF-XF9925 power cage has a maximum weight capacity of 1,000 lbs (453.5 kg) which is not bad for a home-use power cage. In addition, it also applies to the safety bars and j-hooks.
The base bars of the cage feature anchor points (two on each side), so you can secure it to the floor if you want. However, the cage is heavy – approximately 134.5 lbs (61 kg). Also, you can add weight plates on their storage pegs for extra stability. Therefore, anchoring the cage to the floor shouldn’t be necessary unless the resistance band pins are used.
Other parts and accessories
First, just like any other power cage, the Sunny SF-XF9925 Power Zone comes with safety bars and a set of j-hooks. These have a maximum weight capacity of 1,000 lbs (453.5 kg).
They have a thick layer of rubber on their upper section to prevent paint chipping and reduce noise when placing the barbell. Unfortunately, as I’ve mentioned earlier, the adjustment holes for attachment pins are only 3/4″ (1.9 cm), so standard attachments with 1″ pins won’t fit on this cage. (Must use Sunny parts.)
The chinning bar attachment features a multi-grip design. In particular, it offers the possibility to adopt a close grip, a close parallel grip, and several wide grips. Furthermore, it has four adjustment positions, the highest at approximately 83″ (116 cm) above floor level. Therefore, the rack is for users up to 6’4″ (193 cm).
However, the chinning bar attachment does not specify a user weight limit. Therefore, you should be able to perform weighted pull-ups and chin-ups with no problem.
The base bars of the cage feature several holes for attaching resistance band pins. Six pins come with the power cage. They have flattened heads to prevent the resistance bands from slipping off. *The Power Cage must be bolted to the floor before using the resistance band pins.
The cage also includes a set of weight plate storage pegs. They are 2″ (5 cm) in diameter, so they can only hold Olympic (2″) weight plates, and they come with safety springs to keep the plates secure. They are approx. 6.5″ (16.5 cm) long.

Of course, adding a bench to the rack can also perform bench presses. However, the bench does not come with the Power Zone cage only. Moreover, Amazon sells it as a cage and bench package.
SF-XF9925 Assembly and Maintenance
The Sunny SF-XF9925 Power Zone power cage requires complete user assembly. However, the task is pretty straightforward and shouldn’t take more than one hour of your time.
You will have to put together the base first, add the four upright bars, close the rack with the top bars and the pull-up attachment, and add the rest of the attachments. For this purpose, a set of two 16/18 fixed wrenches comes with the cage.
Once fully assembled, maintenance doesn’t require much. In particular, it is advisable to wipe the sweat that may fall onto the frame at the end of the workout. It is also necessary to periodically check for loose bolts and parts and retighten them.
Please note that the Olympic weight bar and plates do not come with the cage.
