Trampolines can provide your family with hours of outdoor fun. It’s a great way to get kids moving and spend time outside; however, when it comes to jumping on a trampoline, you want to make sure your children are safe. In today’s blog post from Superior Play Systems, we are going to discuss four features that are essential for trampoline safety. Read on to learn more.
High-Quality Mat or Pad
First and foremost, you want to choose a trampoline that has a high-quality matt or pad around the exterior edge. These mats or pads provide an extra layer of safety for children if they happen to jump or land too close to the edge of the trampoline. At Superior Play Systems, each and every one of our trampolines has a built-in pad or mat.
In order for a trampoline to be safe, you’ll also want to ensure that it has high-impact netting around the exterior. This netting should extend high enough that your child will be kept safely on the trampoline even if they lose control momentarily and bounce into the netting.
A Safety Doorway
In the netting, it’s also essential to have a doorway that is designed for safety. These doorways can come in several different options. At Superior Play Systems, you’ll find both safety enclosure doorways equipped with a zipper that can be closed after your child gets on the trampoline as well as overlapping doorways which automatically create a safe closure after the child enters. Either option can provide you with peace of mind, knowing your child is protected by the netting all the way around.
Trampolines should also have a sturdy, durable frame made from high-quality materials. Without a durable frame, children can easily be hurt. That’s why at Superior Play Systems, we only carry trampolines from brands we know we can trust for the absolute best construction, including Springfree® and AlleyOOP®.
