Safety Precautions for Trampoline and Trampolining

Trampoline safety

How nice the playground is too, accidents can still happen.

This can happen because of a trampoline that does not meet the necessary safety requirements or perhaps due to incorrect installation or use.

Safety points to watch out for:

  • Quality mark: a safe trampoline has a quality mark. If all goes well, this will be indicated on the packaging.
  • safety net: the net prevents children from getting outside the jumping surface and falling over the edge. Some nets even ensure that the springs fall outside the jumping surface, so it is extra safe.
  • Trampoliner Rim: this is quite simple, the thicker and wider the safety pad, the safer it is. In addition, a thick brim also helps to protect the springs and therefore they last longer.
  • Stainless material: the trampoline will be outside for a large part of the year, which can cause rust. Preferably choose a stainless frame, so that your trampoline will last for years.
  • Sturdy frame: this is also no higher math, the thicker the steel and the larger the tube diameter, the sturdier the trampoline will be.
