Trampolines are a classic backyard staple in Australia and a favourite among kids. But traditionally, they haven’t been all that safe. Aside from the obvious risk of bouncing incorrectly and being tossed over the side, the traditional trampoline has all sorts of impact points that can cause serious injury if landed on — springs, metal frames and hard corners, just to name a few.
So are safe trampolines possible? Well, recent developments in trampoline technology would appear to indicate that not only are they possible, but they’re already available! Springless trampolines have grown in popularity in recent years, thanks to the increased safety they offer. With a design that reduces impact points, keeps moving parts out of reach and features an integrated net, they’re a safer option that will help keep your kids safe while they bounce around.
Are springfree trampolines really safer?
Springless trampolines substantially reduce the number of risks associated with traditional trampolines, in part by reducing the potential impact points. There’s no more metal corners or springs to land on, while netting is attached directly to the base. Additionally, the poles keeping the net erect are designed to be flexible, rather than simply steel wrapped in foam. With all these elements in tandem, there’s no chance of the child sliding out between any gaps, or potentially getting any fingers or feet trapped in springs.
Are spring or springfree trampolines better?
Springless trampolines offer a much safer alternative to the traditional spring-based trampolines, due to their use of integrated components vs the external parts of a spring-based trampoline. While pads certainly can make spring-based trampolines safer, they don’t remove the impact points which can be problematic, and also tend to move around over time and deteriorate quickly.
What is the safest trampoline in Australia?
When you’re purchasing a trampoline, it’s important to remember that safety standards are currently voluntary. While there’s an adherence to best practice, many trampolines still make it to market with features that could cause safety issues, such as exposed springs. However, springless trampolines remove these issues to set a new standard in safety; designs such as the Springfree Compact Oval, Springfree Compact Round and the Springfree Jumbo Round are all geared at setting new standards in trampoline safety.
How long will springfree trampoline last?
If used appropriately and cared for properly springless trampolines should last for many years. They should feature nets and pads that are treated to be UV-resistant, while the bouncing mechanisms are also treated to avoid issues with rust.
