Are you considering buying a trampoline for your family this summer? It’s a great way for a family to have fun together and at the same time burn of some of their energy.
Deciding what size should not be left to chance, it’s very important to measure your garden to ensure that your trampoline will fit.
Remember to leave a safety area of around 2½ meters on all sides.
Choose a frame that is made from strong, galvanized steel which is rust free, weather resistant and can withstand the impact of bouncing.
Always take into account the weight and age limit of the bouncer(s) and if they are likely to be doing some acrobatic style jumps it may be advisable to invest in a larger size.
Accidents do unfortunately happen so a safety net or enclose which would protect the jumper bouncing off the trampoline would be a wise investment.
Trampolines are available in a range of sizes, take a look at the wide range available from The Entertainer, suitable for most families and many also come with safety nets included
Most trampolines come with easy to follow assembly instructions and should not be too difficult to put together.
Always place your new trampoline on soft, level ground making sure to keep it away from obvious dangers such as washing lines, fences or trees.
Never place the trampoline on a hard surface (i.e. concrete, hard packed mud) without some form of crash matting or safety netting.
Your family will have great fun playing on their trampoline, please ensure that only one person uses it at a time and that they have removed shoes, watches etc before play.
Only one person at a time should use the trampoline and they should bounce in the middle.
Never go under the trampoline when someone else is jumping.
Do not use the trampoline if you see a rip or split in the mat, or if the padding has come away from the metal springs.
Trampolines are a must have toy for summer fun and have the added bonus of being a form of healthy exercise as well as fun for all the family.
A garden trampoline is designed with fun and exercise in mind and is not for professional use, so no acrobatics!
Please ensure that children are supervised at all times.
