The stainless steel rail of the AAI Elite Horizontal Bar has a heat treated shot-peen finish.

Because of the more powerful moves being performed on the horizontal bar at the elite levels, data compiled by the FIG Safety Symposium leads Carolina Gym Supply to strongly recommend that horizontal bars and collars be replaced every three years to prevent the possibility of the bar breaking. The newer moves have been shown to apply greater impact loads and vibrations to the bar and its support structure.
