Valor Athletics BD-6 has 5 different height positions for weights - not so much as squat cages, but acceptable.

Unlike many similar racks, it has adjustable safety bars/stands, so it can be used for various exercises, not only squats. However, these stands are not very long, so if something happen, be careful how you drop your weights - bumper weights are highly recommended not only with squat stands, but also with squat racks.

Solid steel bar pegs act as weight stand increasing overall weight of the rack and its stability.

Assembly is relatively easy, just follow the manual - required tools are included, unlike barbell and plates (on the photo).

Maximum recommended bar weight is 500 pounds (227 kg) and for most of the home gyms, this is enough. For commercial gyms - this is very well built rack and can easily tolerate recommended weight. However, if there are people in the gym that regularly lift these weights, then you should consider squat racks with 700 pounds (317 kg) recommended maximum weight - such racks are sturdier, heavier and cost more money.

Unit is made using 2x2 inches (5x5 cm) steel frame with overall dimensions HxWxD 64x44x53 inches (162.5x112x135 cm).

Valor Athletics BD-6 comes with 5 year warranty.

Long story short - well built squat rack at acceptable price. Note: in general, squat cage (power rack) is safer than squat rack - very important if you like to workout at home, alone.
