Safety is a very crucial trampoline maintenance tip. Trampoline safety encompasses child activity in the trampoline as well as the suitability of the surrounding environment. The following tips are relevant to achieve a non-compromising safe environment both for the trampoline and its users.

Safety Tips

  1. Keep the area around your trampoline clear from any foreign objects.
  2. Inspect the trampoline before each use and replace any worn or missing parts. Also ensure parts are safe and securely attached.
  3. Supervise children and inexperienced jumpers at all times, taking extra care with younger children.
  4. Do not allow any activity under the trampoline. Keep children or pets from underneath the trampoline while someone is jumping.
  5. Enter and exit safely through the Safety net opening using the ladder provided.
  6. Bare feet are the best and safest way to jump on a trampoline mat as they provide grip and avoid slipping.
  7. Jumping in the middle of the trampoline is the best and safest place to bounce.
  8. Place your trampoline on a level surface and well lit area, to ensure a safe and secure bounce.
  9. Ensure the trampoline is properly secure.
  10. To ensure complete safety, particularly with little jumpers, ensure your safety net is used to help protect and avoid injury.

Maintenance Tips

Take a look at these trampoline maintenance tips from a step by step approach. The trampoline is made up of a number of components that require specific maintenance guidelines.

Trampoline Frame

  1. We recommend a soft, level surface for trampoline positioning, such as a front or back lawn. Hard surfaces such as concrete or pavement are not recommended as they can increase pressure on the frame and cause damage.
  2. Take note of the weight capacity levels on trampolines. Overextending these capacities can leave to damage.
  3. When moving a trampoline, we recommend lifting the trampoline or using wheels. Do not drag the trampoline as this can cause bending and warping of the legs and joins.

Safety Pads

  1. Safety Padding should be kept loose and clear above the springs. They should not be squashed or compromised in any way whilst the trampoline is in use, as this can cause ripping on the safety pads.
  2. In extremely cold weather conditions when the trampoline isn’t in use, remove your safety pads and store inside for winter, to avoid cracking and water damage.
  3. Whilst our safety pads are UV protected, in long heat waves when trampoline is not in use it is recommended to remove safety pads to ensure longevity.

  3. When extreme weather conditions occur for long periods of time, remove your safety net and store securely, to ensure longevity.
  4. Do not encourage jumpers to sit, stretch or consistently rebound off the safety net.

  1. When not in use for long periods of time remove your accessories to keep it protected.
  2. In extreme weather conditions particularly high winds remove your accessory from the trampoline and store inside.
