What type of Aluminum Sections could handle load equivalent to a 11-12 gauge Steel Sections of 2x3 or 3x3 on such frame?

If one had to Re-engineer the Vertical Tubes/ Frame using Aluminum. What would it take?

Aluminum sections I am thinking of:

Visual/ Data Example of such:

Profile PRO Rack

  • Heavy-duty 3x3 11-gauge uprights
  • 73" Squat Rack Weight Cap: 600lbs
  • 90"/96" Rack with Pull-Up/Kipping Bar Weight Cap: 1000lbs

Profile Rack

  • 2x3 11-gauge Uprights
  • 73" Squat Rack Weight Cap: 500lbs
  • 90" Rack with Pull-Up/Kipping Bar Weight Cap: 1000lbs
