Spring Trampolines

Classic trampolines with springs offer great value, have strong padding, and give you optimal bounce right in the centre of the mat. If you’re concerned about the safety of the springs, look for a model that has an enclosure on the inside of the springs, preventing any contact.

COMPOSITE TRAMPOLINES

Composite trampolines are considered premium models for ultimate jump action and safety. These spring-free models have a hidden metal frame and unique flexible net rods that eliminate pinch points and prevent injuries.

HOW MUCH SPACE DO YOU HAVE?

Backyard trampoline diameters range in size from about 6 feet up to 17 feet. They also require about 4 feet of lateral clearance, so make sure you choose one that will fit in your space and that there aren’t any trees obstructing the area.

WHAT’S YOUR BUDGET?

Depending on the bounce system and feature you’re looking for, the price range for trampolines can vary. Review the options in terms of type, size, and price point to find the one best for you.

WHAT’S YOUR MAXIMUM WEIGHT REQUIREMENT?

Most trampolines are constructed to support jumpers of about 200-250lbs, but some premium models can handle up to 300lbs or more. Keep in mind that all trampolines recommend only one user at a time for maximum safety.
