How to choose the best kids trampoline 2022 for your needs?

For maximum comfort and safe use, there are several criteria to consider before embarking on the purchase of a kids trampoline.

The size

The size of the kids trampoline is measured edge to edge, springs and frame included. It will have to adapt to the age of its users. If it is for children, opt for a diameter between 1.40 and 4.30 m. It will take between 20 and 30 cm less to have the size of the jumping mat.

However, the quality of this type of installation is not judged by its size. Large models do not necessarily offer a better jump, on the contrary. For a smaller surface, there is less deformation and therefore is more dynamic.

The structure

Most often the structure is made of galvanized steel. Indeed, it must demonstrate solidity, resistance and stability in order to ensure optimal safety. It will be necessary to check the thickness of the tubes which must be at least 38 mm in diameter and 1.5 mm thick. The structure is the criterion that ensures the durability of the kids trampoline. But it will still be necessary to respect the maximum weight.

The jumping mat and the rebound

The canvas is the element that offers the user enough rebound for ever higher jumps. It is therefore important to choose a quality fabric that is able to filter rainwater. This prevents deterioration of the kids trampoline over time.

Generally jumping mats are made of polypropylene, a material that is both strong and flexible. In addition, it must be ensured that the springs are well positioned and have the right dimensions. Their length is between 180 to 20 m and the number should correspond to the size of the kids trampoline.

Thus, for a product 4 m in diameter, there are generally nearly 72 springs. For a model of less than 3 m, has about 48 springs. For a permanent outdoor installation such as an above-ground swimming pool, the springs will have to resist corrosion well.

The accessories

These allow you to get the most out of your kids trampoline. Thus, they facilitate access to this passenger compartment or make it safer. These accessories include a weather cover, a ladder, an anchor kit to add stability, a shoe storage net, and more.
