Just noticed this rack on the New York Barbells website.
It looks like it can be bolted down. Looks interesting.

OK looking rack but it's a chinese made rack at the same delivered price (or more) as a Rogue, EliteFTS, or Legend.

I've not been impressed with the quality of the two NYBB pieces that I bought - a leg extension/curl and a seated calf raise. The leg extension/curl broke after about two years of use. The weld holding the foot piece to the bar completely broke. The pads on the calf raise are inadequate, compressing all the way down and if I'm not careful allowing the board behind them to grind painfully into my thighs and requiring more willpower than I sometimes have to get through a calf workout. It's on the list to be replaced as budget priorities allow. Both of them felt a little rickety in use. One had some rust on it when it arrived.
I'd have saved more money by spending more money in the first place for something higher quality, and when there are higher quality options for the same price, I certainly wouldn't go with NYBB.
That's just my experience, of course. Maybe I got dud versions of dud pieces and they're otherwise great, but I don't remember NYBB getting much love from others either.

I have the NYBB C92563 rack, and it's been solid over the few years that I've owned it. But I agree with the others, for that price, I'm going with a different option.STAND TALL AND SHAKE THE HEAVENS!!

The size is pretty standard for racks using the safety rods without a pipe.

Anybody have their Titan 3x3 rack?
It's $699 at thebenchpress.com
Their shipping quotes are much more reasonable than ordering directly from NYBB.
At 364 lbs, you certainly get a fair amount of 11 g steel per dollar...

Sorinex Dark Horse over it. It should be about the same price as the TDS shipped, has a plate storage by default, and from what I had shown from recent threads regarding them, Sorinex's excellent customer support and quality control (both of which NYBB seem to fall behind of) also makes that rack a much better value.

NYBB Titan 3x3 would be better if you don't have space behind the rack for the add on weight storage. Also, inside hand spacing might be preferable at 44 inches.
Thebenchpress.com was offering it for around $835 shipped back in the fall, depending on your location.
By way of clarification, I'm referring to this rack:
