Safety Notices & Tips

We want all Springfree™ Trampoline owners to enjoy safe jumping in their backyards.

We've removed all the traditional injury causing hazards from the trampoline design – effectively  “engineering out” the elements responsible for most injuries.

From time to time, we are advised of ways people are using trampolines.  We have been notified of what we would consider unsafe usage, even on “The World’s Safest Trampoline”.

We would encourage all owners to ensure:

  1. One jumper at a time - multiple jumpers increase the risk of injury from collision. Statistics show that with more than one simultaneous user, the smaller/lighter of the two is almost always the one sustaining an injury
  2. No somersaults - untrained jumpers run the risk of landing awkwardly
  3. No wrestling - we know kids love to rough and tumble, but this type of behavior can result in injury
  4. No animals on the trampoline - while 'Fido' may love to have a turn this can cause collisions
  5. No toys or furniture on the trampoline while jumping - any new object introduced to the trampoline could potentially be another 'hard surface' and could result in injury by impact.

Make sure your family jumps safely.

Even with the World's Safest Trampoline, injuries are still possible from incorrect or irresponsible use. Customers have asked us for guidance, so we've developed the following tips:

Safe Installation

Please make sure when you install your Springfree™ Trampoline that:

1. It is installed on a flat surface
2. There is at least 1 metre clearance around all sides. This not only allows safe access on to the trampoline surface, but will allow the FlexiNet™ to stretch outwards when catching wayward jumpers.

Safe Jumping 

While independent tests prove Springfree™ Trampoline is the safest trampoline in the world, it is important to follow some basic jumping guidelines.

Adult supervision for younger jumpers: Kids will be kids, so it's important to have an adult present to ensure safe jumping behaviour. Your trampoline itself is safely designed, but it is critical for a "big person" to ensure no hard objects are bought onto the mat bed, children are jumping one at a time, not attempting flips or somersaults or crawling under the trampoline while someone is jumping. 

Stand back from the trampoline enclosure: The FlexiNet™ is designed to deform and catch a wayward jumper. If impacted it will naturally extend beyond the mat boundary. Spectators should stand back from the trampoline to ensure adequate clearance.  

One at a time: There are lots of natural play activities kids can enjoy on a trampoline, but when it comes to safety – one at a time is the only safe way. 17% of trampoline accidents are caused by collision when more than one person is on a trampoline.  

Somersaults and flips need professional supervision: Flips should never be attempted in the home environment. Untrained jumpers run the risk of landing awkwardly and causing potentially serious injuries. Children wishing to extend their skill set, should be enrolled in formal trampoline training lessons. 

No pets: The family pet still counts as an additional jumper, therefore should not be introduced to the trampoline.

Keep objects off the trampoline:  Taking other toys onto the trampoline can be a lot of fun, and it’s a natural thing for kids to do. But sharp or hard objects can cause risk to jumpers or damage your trampoline. We have just launched our new FlexrHoop - designed to allow additional play without introducing hard surfaces. So if your family wants basketball fun on their trampoline, consider our safely designed and tested accessory.

The Definition of Safety

The Springfree™ is ‘a trampoline that’s not a trampoline as you know it’. Springfree™ Trampoline has created the world's safest trampoline products that effectively remove all the traditional impact areas that cause equipment induced trampoline injuries.

tram·po·line (noun)
A strong, taut sheet, usually of canvas, attached with springs to a metal frame and used for gymnastic springing and tumbling.

Spring·free Trampoline (proper noun)
A next-generation design trampoline removing all dangerous design elements present in conventional trampolines – the steel coil springs, the frame at the jumping surface, rigid steel enclosure poles and the risk of falling off.

By removing the impact areas that cause injury in all other trampoline designs, our innovative trampoline products significantly help reduce the frequency of childhood injury and trauma in the backyard.
