About Springfree Trampoline

 

1. Why is a Springfree Trampoline safer than other trampoline models?

The Springfree Trampoline patented design features have eliminated 90% of product related trampoline injuries. The key features that make Springfree the world’s safest are:

Mat rods provide the safest bounce - Instead of springs which tend to stretch, rust and trap toes and feet, Springfree’s revolutionary design uses patented flexible rods. The rods provide a smooth, non-jarring bounce and lie beneath the jumping surface, out of harm’s way.

SoftEdge™ Mat removes hard edges - Our proprietary mat is 30 times more shock-absorbent than pads found on traditional trampolines.

FlexiNet™ Safety Enclosure keeps the jumper on the trampoline - The patented FlexiNet enclosure has flexible rods to cushion jumpers and prevent falls. The jumper is directed back to the center and cannot make contact with the net rods. The zippered net also ensures jumpers cannot fall through the opening.

Frame situated beneath the jumping surface out of harm’s way – Additionally, with three layers of rust-preventative coating, our steel frames are built to endure even the most extreme weather.

2. Is a Springfree Trampoline as bouncy as a traditional trampoline?

Springfree Trampoline provides a bounce similar to a traditional, spring-based trampoline in terms of how high you can jump. More porosity means it pumps less air and instead gives the energy back to the jumper. You can get a lot more height with more porosity. Springfree Trampoline mat fabric provides porosity equivalent to traditional trampolines of the same size.

However, the feel of the bounce differs as Springfree Trampoline has a smooth, non-jarring bounce. The deep, soft bounce of a Springfree Trampoline is much gentler on knees and joints for the jumpers. For more information, watch the “Is it bouncy?” video.

 

3. How soft is the edge of a Springfree Trampoline?

Springfree Trampoline’s SoftEdge™ Mat is 30 times more shock absorbent then pads found on traditional trampolines.

 

4. Why doesn't a Springfree Trampoline have pads around the edge?

The Springfree Trampoline proprietary design doesn’t need pads around the edge! The SoftEdge™ Mat itself has much more give than normal safety pads. In fact, the Springfree Trampoline edge is equivalent to the 70mm thick padding used on Olympic standard trampolines.

Traditional trampolines require safety pads to protect the jumper from falling on the steel frame, falling through or getting caught in the springs. However, independent safety tests show that these pads do not absorb enough impact to sufficiently protect jumpers from contact with the springs and frame. Springfree Trampoline’s superior design has completely removed the springs and steel frame at jumping level, so there is no need for safety pads.

 

5. Other trampolines have enclosures - what is different about the Springfree Trampoline enclosure?

Springfree Trampoline’s FlexiNet™ enclosure is strong yet provides a unique flexibility that gently redirects wayward jumpers back to the center of the trampoline.

Some spring-based trampolines may have enclosures but they aren't flexible and are held up with rigid steel poles which introduce another impact risk. Basic enclosures only stop jumpers from falling off. There is a risk that these jumpers could make impact with the springs and frame.

The FlexiNet™ on a Springfree Trampoline is UV-resistant to prevent deterioration from the sun and other harsh weather conditions.

 

6. Can a jumper hit the ground even though there's a net?

Our FlexiNet™ enclosure system is designed to catch wayward jumpers and guide them safely back to the center of the mat.

Even in cases where the FlexiNet is challenged by intentionally jumping into the top section of the enclosure, its proprietary design will maintain jumper safety. It is possible for a skilled jumper to make the net flex to the ground but the FlexiNet will still absorb the jumper's impact and decrease the speed at which the jumper is lowered to the ground, minimizing the eventual impact.

 

7. Can I have a Springfree Trampoline without the enclosure?

All Springfree Trampolines are sold with the FlexiNet™ enclosure. While it is possible to install a Springfree Trampoline without the FlexiNet, we do not recommend doing so.

The FlexiNet enclosure is one of the most important safety components of the Springfree Trampoline. It is designed to gently guide jumpers back to the center of the trampoline and eliminates the risk of them falling to the ground.

For more information about the safety enclosure net of your Springfree Trampoline, check out this short video.

 

8. Do the Springfree Trampoline rods twist?

Springfree Trampolines do not have any twisting action from the composite rods, it is lateral movement.

For more information, check out this video.

 

9. Why do you recommend only one jumper at a time?

While the Springfree Trampoline is the only trampoline to accomplish the elimination of 90% of product-related injuries from traditional trampolines, trampoline injuries can also occur from jumper collisions if more than one person jumps at a time. To ensure your family avoids injury altogether, we highly recommend enforcing the ‘one at a time rule’ when jumping on the Springfree Trampoline.

 

10. How much weight can a Springfree Trampoline take?

To understand the strength of a Springfree Trampoline, there are two weights you need to be aware of - the Tested Max Weight Capacity (Structural Load Capacity) and the Single Jumper Weight Capacity (Maximum Single User Weight). The first relates to strength and the second relates to safety.

The Tested Max Weight Capacity is the amount of static weight a trampoline can hold. A Springfree is strong enough to hold more than this weight, but this limit allows for a safe margin before the mat will touch the ground.

The Single Jumper Weight Capacity is based on how heavy you are and how high you jump. It is about ensuring jumpers don’t ‘bottom out’ (touch the ground while jumping).

 

 

Springfree Model Tested Maximum Weight Capacity Single Jumper Weight Capacity
R79 Medium Round 680kgs (1500lbs)  100kgs (220lbs)
O77 Medium Oval 680kgs (1500lbs)  100kgs (220lbs)
O92 Large Oval 680kgs (1500lbs)  100kgs (220lbs)
S113 Large Square 680kgs (1500lbs)  100kgs (220lbs)

11. Is the Springfree Trampoline weather-resistant? Can it stay up through all seasons?

All components of the Springfree Trampoline are weather-resistant, including UV stabilized mat and net rods, a galvanized and powder-coated steel frame and a UV stabilized polypropylene mat and safety enclosure.

Your Springfree Trampoline can be used all year and does not need to be covered or packed away even during the harshest summers or the coldest winters. Springfree Trampoline mats can hold quite a lot of weight, but in very heavy snowfalls you will need to brush off the excess snow (with a soft-bristle brush, not a shovel) to avoid extra tension on the fiberglass mat rods located beneath the jumping surface.

 

12. Where is Springfree Trampoline made?

When developing the Springfree Trampoline, our inventor, Keith Alexander and his team of professional engineers created a superior design that focused on safety. The team searched the globe for the best quality materials and components. Further, we decided the only way to ensure safety was to build our own plant, with our own employees and our own quality control facilities. Our manufacturing facilities are located in China and we are proud to report having one of the most stable workforces; having invested in education and childcare for our associates. We are the only trampoline sold in the US that is fully, vertically integrated – from design, to manufacturing to dedicated offices and retail stores located within the US. In order to ensure the integrity of the world’s safest trampoline, it was important to us to oversee all aspects of the manufacturing, delivery and servicing – to maintain the superior safety and quality.

For more information check out this quick video which explains where the Springfree Trampoline comes from.

 

13. Are the plastic covers necessary on the mat and net rods?

Yes. The high-performance rods on a Springfree Trampoline are housed in light plastic sheaths that protect the composite rods from UV deterioration. These sheaths may deteriorate over long periods of time as they take the full force of UV exposure, but they can be replaced. The rods and sheaths are covered under our 10-year warranty.

Choosing a Springfree Trampoline

 

1. How much space do I need around a Springfree Trampoline?

The required air space is important for safety. A minimum of 5 feet clearance is recommended around the perimeter of the trampoline. The easiest way to figure the spacing would be to add 10 ft to the length and width. For example, for the 11' square you would need a clearance of 21' x 21'. That is not the footprint. That is the air space clearance you would need. Footprint is still the listed 11' square.

Minimum space required to set up each model:

Springfree Model Trampoline Size Minimum Space Required
R30 Mini Round 6ft diameter 16ft x 16ft
R54 Compact Round 8ft diameter 18ft x 18ft
R79 Medium Round 10ft diameter 20ft x 20ft
O47 Compact Oval 6ft x 9ft 16ft x 19ft
O77 Medium Oval 8ft x 11ft 18ft x 21ft
O92 Large Oval 8ft x 13ft 18ft x 23ft
S113 Large Square 11ft x 11ft 21ft x 21ft
S155 Jumbo Square 13ft x 13ft 23ft x 23ft
O200 Jumbo Oval 12ft x 19ft 22ft x 29ft

10 Benefits of Jumping on Springfree Trampoline for kids

 

1. Teaches persistence

It takes time to master specific skills on a trampoline, but because it’s so much fun, kids will often persist until they get their moves absolutely right.

 

2. Improves self-esteem

As a child masters new skills on the trampoline they begin to gain confidence, which in turn translates into a better self-image.

 

3. Learning made easy!

As kids learn to control the movement of their body, it can help them to learn other things too.

Because a trampoline teaches muscle control and coordination, many children see an improvement in their learning success when they use a trampoline regularly. It can also help kids’ ability to learn. Through calming kids down and improving their concentration, trampolining can improve kids’ engagement in learning.

 

4. Improves flexibility

Jumping on a trampoline strengthens and lengthens muscles and improves flexibility.

 

5. Develops motor skills

When kids jump on a trampoline their brain is forced to function bilaterally as they jump up and down in the air.

Both sides of their brain and both sides of their body must work together to maintain coordination and balance when on a trampoline. This in turn helps increase their motor skills.

 

6. Cardiovascular workouts

Jumping on a trampoline increases a child's heart rate and gives their heart a great workout.

 

7. Improved posture

Along with improving kids balance, jumping on a trampoline can improve their posture.

The trampoline floor is constantly moving and kids must be aware of their centre of gravity at all times.

The balance they learn on a trampoline helps improve balance in other activities too.

 

8. Boost Immune System

Bouncing on a trampoline is also great for detoxifying the body and strengthening the immune system, as it stimulates internal organs and promotes lymphatic circulation. It pushes toxins out of cells and allows nutrients in.

 

9. Regulation of Energy

Many individuals with autism may have high energy levels or difficulty regulating their activity levels. Jumping on a trampoline provides a constructive outlet for excess energy, helping to reduce hyperactivity and promote relaxation.

 

10. Sensory Integration

Engaging in activities on a trampoline involves integrating multiple sensory inputs, including visual, vestibular, and proprioceptive feedback. This can help individuals with autism improve their sensory processing abilities over time, leading to better self-regulation and increased comfort in various environments.
