Trampolines are a popular outdoor sporting equipment for many families in Canada. Before purchasing a trampoline, however, parents want a safe trampoline that will guarantee minimal injuries to playing children. Child safety experts estimate that about 15% of children using a trampoline get injured. Common accidents that occur while using a trampoline include pinches, cuts, and fractures.Most injuries result from falling out of trampolines. And injuries resulting from falls on the steel frame account for an estimated 29% of the known trauma. If you crunch these numbers, it becomes easy to tell why so many people are hesitant about buying a trampoline for their backyard.
This is why Springfree Trampoline has changed the trampoline safety game by introducing the world’s safest trampoline — one that utilizes flexible composite rods instead of springs and hides the metal frame below the jumping surface to prevent bouncers from coming into contact with it. Thanks to this ingenious design, Springfree trampolines have removed 90% of product-related injury on trampolines. Hidden frames are better than exposed frames since they are placed under the jumping surface. This minimizes accidents since a jumper cannot hit the hard frame. An exposed frame can cause fractures and other injuries in case an accidental fall occurs. Springfree Trampoline’s composite rods and FlexiNet enclosure help guide jumpers back to the mat and prevents falls to the ground.
By using flexible carbon rods instead of springs, and by using the same rod material to hold up the net enclosure, a literal 360 degree safety space is created. Where the patented SoftEdge mat ends, the FlexiNet enclosure begins, supported not by steel poles but by the flexible rods. By eliminating both the visible steel frame and the coil springs, your children’s safety is enhanced by reducing chances of injury without limiting play. When you look for trampolines for sale in Canada, you can rest assured that the product is designed to eliminate the most common hazards and maximize fun and safety for your family.
The world’s safest trampolines have a SoftEdge mat that is 30 times more shock absorbent than pads on a spring-based trampoline. The pads used in traditional trampolines may not guarantee safety since they lose much of their shock absorbency after initial impact.When purchasing a trampoline, purchase one that is long-lasting, has minimal injury incidences, and gives children the enjoyment they desire. Subsequently, a parentshould purchase trampolines only from manufacturers with a good reputation in the industry. For instance, the best trampoline manufacturing companies are backed by industry awards such as the Product of the Year Award south of the border. Similarly, International Design awards companies that meet — and in the case of Springfree, exceed — international design standards with their products.

Safety is definitely important when it comes to trampolines, one product that you definitely want to research and maybe spend a bit more money on it to ensure it is safe.
I think these trampolines are awesome, if they were around when my girls were young I know I would of had one, I love that the springs or I mean the rods are underneath, no more getting any body parts pinched!!
I agree trampolines do cause injuries, some are sever, so it is essential to be fully informed before buying one. Safety comes first and rules must be set for its use too.
Well, this is kind of cool! My boys never had a trampoline because I honestly believed them to be a death trap… I broke my arm on one when I was nine, ended up with a black eye and fractured occipital when I was fourteen and had numerous smaller injuries growing up… So this is kind of cool and I am excited about looking into it. Thanks!
We just have a regular trampoline but I dream of getting one of these someday 🙂
Trampolines have sure come a long way over the years…..hoping to own a Springfree trampoline one day soon!
Trampolines nowadays are wonderful. The older ones scare me.
I would love to to get one of these for my kids. Their price is too high though.
