Superior Quality Trampolines

December 13, 2011 | Comments: 0 | Views: 149

Purchasing a trampoline can be a wise long-term investment if the customer is informed on what a high quality trampoline consists of. A trampoline should not be thought of as a temporary item for entertainment. Instead it should be viewed as a purchase that will provide many years of bonding experiences and heart-warming memories. It is always beneficial for the customer to be informed on what a high quality trampoline consists of so a smart purchase can be made.

The most common shapes offered are round and rectangular. Round shapes are usually the budget-friendly option because they are more effective for manufacturers to produce. Rectangular shapes require sturdier frame materials due to the excessive stress placed on the frame in specific areas. The durable material required is what usually contributes to rectangular shapes being more expensive than round shapes. The sturdier construction required for rectangular shapes does typically allow them to outlast round shapes. Rectangular trampoline are generally used for athletic purposes due to their superior construction and performance. Due to the design of the trampoline the impact is distributed, putting less stress on the springs. Round shapes are often used for recreational purposes. The performance of round trampolines differs from that of rectangular because with each bounce all springs are pulled from multiple directions, causing increased stress on the springs.

One factor that most trampoline customers are unfamiliar with in determining its quality is spring length. It is important to remember that longer springs provide a softer bounce allowing the jumper to bounce higher. Shorter springs provide a shallow jolting bounce and also require replacement more often. Due to how easily shorter springs pull, they are much less resilient to adult jumpers. Typically for sizes ranging from 12 feet to 16 feet, 7 inch to 8.5 inch springs are a good length to have. If possible avoid trampolines with springs shorter than 7 inches. These springs are what would be deemed "short springs" by the trampoline industry. Shorter springs are commonly found on modern produced trampolines and truly reflect the quality. If you already own a trampoline which has shorter springs you can always upgrade your spring length, but can only do so when replacing your mat (the jumping surface). A mat replacement is required when changing spring length because the mat size will need to be adjusted to create the correct amount of tension for the mat and springs.
