The noise level has reached an all-time high and your kids need to release some energy and get some exercise, but without the proper outdoor activity, they’re stuck inside on a sunny, summer day. A trampoline is the perfect solution, but you need to find one with industry-leading safety. Your children will enjoy each bounce and you will enjoy an entertaining way for them to expel their energy, and it also makes a great calorie-burner for adults, too. One of the biggest fears of a parent when it comes to trampolines is the concern of children getting pinched fingers or limbs from the springs that surround the trampoline. Fortunately, there are trampolines that have been designed to assuage these fears and allow your children to play safely.
A parent doesn’t want just any trampoline; they want the world’s safest trampoline! A safe product will have components that have been rigorously tested for quality assurance and that don’t just meet, but set the standard for the trampoline industry. A hidden frame is far less dangerous than an exposed frame and less scary for the jumper. Virginia Judge, Fair Trading Minister ordered a review of the safety for trampolines and the study concluded that 29% of hospital related injuries were due to children falling into/onto the steel frame and springs of the trampoline. Traditional metal trampoline frames enclose the jumping surface and are inches from the jumpers’ bodies, while the safer alternative is to build the frame beneath the jumping surface, making it impossible for jumpers to come in contact.
The safest trampolines are made by companies that are backed by industry awards, such as the US Family Choice Award and the International Design Award. You will want a trampoline with a unique jumping surface known as a SoftEdge mat that is 30 times more shock absorbent than traditional trampoline pads. Additionally, parents want a trampoline that uses the highest quality materials where each component has been tested in the manufacturer’s own facility.
This is why Springfree Trampoline has changed the game by using flexible composite rods instead of springs, which significantly reduce the risk of pinching and other injury. Unlike horizontal springs, the rods are positioned beneath the jumping surface, and consequently children never come in contact with them. In fact, Springfree Trampoline’s patented SoftEdge mat combined with the FlexiNet enclosure have helped reduce product-related injury by 90%.According to the CS Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), trampoline enclosures can help prevent injuries, and flexible carbon rods are a far better alternative to rigid steel poles.
When purchasing a trampoline, find one that is safe, reliable, and fun for your children. Search for a trampoline that has industry-leading safety so you can send your kids out to play without having to worry about the consequences of a trampoline with springs or no net.
