| In recent years more and more families have
become aware of the long term benefits of having a trampoline in their garden
- children never seem to lose their enthusiasm for them, and parents are
finding a new form of fun exercise. However, as there are now so many people
using trampolines these days, it is perhaps inevitable that accidents, although
actually very rare, becomes more of a concern to parents. Here at eurocosm.com
we are very keen to promote trampoline safety, and our sales team is always
on hand to advise, help and support our customers in this respect. The most
important thing to remember is to make sure that children understand the
simple rules of how to avoid accidents when using a trampoline. In addition,
the use of a safety net can provide a second line of defence against a particular
type of trampoline accident - falling off. Here we try to explain some of
the issues that may help customers to decide which safety net enlcosure
is necessary for them.
What is a Trampoline Safety Net?
A Safety Net, sometimes called a trampoline enclosure or fun ring etc, is
a circular net, that fits around your trampoline and prevents you falling
off your trampoline. Although there are many safety net models available,
quality does vary quite considerably, and is not always related to price.
How does a Trampoline Safety Net prevent accidents?
The primary function of a Safety Net is to stop anyone falling off a trampoline.
Accidents on trampolines are, in fact, very rare. The types of accidents
that result in injury are usually not related to falls on the trampoline
bed or the part of the pads covering the springs, but to falls onto the
outer circular rail, and falls onto the ground around the trampoline. Falls
off the trampoline are more dangerous if the ground around the trampoline
is not free of obtructions (eg chairs, bikes, walls etc), or if the ground
is particularly hard (eg stone patios). The likelihood of such accidents
increases if children are not aware of safety rules, such as not jumping
too close to the edge, not trying advanced moves, such as somersaults, and
using the trampoline one person at time.
What are the benefits of a Safety Net?
Without a Safety Net, the level of supervision required by parents increases.
It is not uncommon to see parents standing each side of a trampoline, with
their hearts in their mouths as their little three-year old joyfully runs
round the edge of trampoline in complete gay abandon. This can be very stressful
for parents, which can even sometimes spoil the fun your child is having.
If you fit a safety net, parental supervision is still advised, however
you will notice that, as a parent, stress levels will reduce dramatically.
Another benefit of a trampoline enclosure is that it enables you to do more
on your trampoline, giving you more confidence to try out new manoeuvers.
Are all Safety Nets the same?
No - the quality of trampoline safety enclosures does vary quite considerably.
Almost all mid-range and upwards safety nets available today are capable
of preventing children and adults from falling off the trampoline, not all
are capable of preventing the another type of potentially dangerous accident
- falling onto the outer rail. The outer rail is the circular bar on the
trampoline frame to which the trampoline springs are attached. Although
this part of the frame is usually covered by the trampoline pads, it is
usually the hardest part of the trampoline on which it is possible to fall.
We therefore recommend trampoline safety nets that are held INSIDE the circumference
of the outer rail, so that the chances of falling onto the outer rail are
greatly reduced. Budget safety nets are often NOT constructed in this way
- the net is often hung directly onto the vertical enclosure poles, outside
the outer rail, and making a fall onto the outer rail unpreventable. Worse,
with this type of budget construction, you have the additional risk of falling
onto the safety-net metal poles themselves!
Which Safety Nets do you recommend?
We recommend trampoline enclosures whose net is held off the enclosure frame,
since this is a safer design. Our favourite safety net is the JumpKing Safety
Enclosure - not only from a safety aspect, but also because it represents particularly
good value for money, and blends well into the garden too!. The frame looks
like a series of upside down "U"'s, giving greater strength, and preventing
the vertical poles from bending inwards over time. The net is held off the
frame, and away from the outer rail, making it safer than earlier safety
net designs. In fact, the net on this model actually comes inside the padding,
which increases safety even further (and, yes, protects the pads too!).
The quality of the netting itself is also good (some nets tend to use a
particularly rough type of netting that does't look or feel nice at all).
Also, the colour of this safety net is black, which is a very good colour
if you want your trampoline to blend well into the garden, and not be too
Are your Safety Nets compatible with my trampoline?
All our safety nets are compatibtle wil all 10, 12 and 14 foot outdoor trampolines
that have a standard leg construction - ie 8 vertical legs (4 sets of leg
pairs). You will rarely see trampolines with 6 leg pairs, but these non-standard
trampolines are generally not very sought after anyway. All you need to
do is select the correct diameter - a 14ft Safety Net is suitable for a
14ft trampoline (in this case, 14ft is the overall diameter, including the
Is a Safety Net easy to fit?
All our trampoline safety nets bolt onto the vertical legs poles on your
trampoline. This is a simple assembly operation, and no special tools (or
strength!) is required. Fitting usually takes about 40 minutes.
