What do I need to know before I use my trampoline?
Before using your trampoline, we recommend clearing the surrounding area of any objects or debris. Aim for 1.5 metres of free space around the outside of the product. This will give everyone the space to get on and off the trampoline. It will also allow for potential stumbles and falls during dismount. Please keep the area beneath the trampoline free of objects, too, and remember that no one should be beneath the trampoline while it’s in use.
How do I make sure my trampoline remains safe?
To avoid risk of injury, we recommend checking your trampoline every four weeks for signs of wear and tear. Please read the below questions carefully. If you answer yes to any of them, we advise refraining from use until you have sought appropriate advice.
- Has the frame become twisted, warped or unsteady?
- Do you notice any holes or rips in the safety net, roof, tents or mats?
- Are the mats and safety padding in their proper position and securely fastened?
- Do the springs show any sign of damage, weakness or wear?
- Do the fabric and stitching appear worn, frayed or in danger of deteriorating?
How do I ensure everyone stays safe when using my trampoline?
Check your trampoline for signs of wear and tear before every use, and make sure the safety padding is secure and in the correct position. If you notice any signs of damage, then stop using your trampoline immediately until the defect is resolved. Here are some additional general safety rules to keep in mind:
- Avoid bouncing on the trampoline immediately after eating.
- Please ensure only one person uses the trampoline at any one time. Multiple users can result in collisions and injury.
- Ensure the zip is fully closed and the bucket securely in place during each session.
- Children and new users should always be supervised.
- To keep your safety net in place, refrain from deliberately leaning your weight on it or jumping into it.
