Before Buying Your First Trampoline
If you’re thinking of buying your first trampoline, there are a few things you should know before buying one. First, trampolines can be a lot of fun. But, you should know what you’re getting into before purchasing one. Here are a few tips on buying a trampoline, and several things to look out for when making sure you find the perfect tramp kit to fit your needs.
Who Will Use the Trampoline?
When buying a trampoline, one of the most important aspects is safety. If you are buying a trampoline for your children, you need to make sure it is the safest one for them to use. Children don’t weigh as much as adults, so if several children are jumping on the trampoline at once, there could easily be an injury. Regardless of the expert you speak with, no more than one person should be allowed to bounce on a trampoline at a single time. In fact, the American Academy of Pediatrics stresses how dangerous trampolines may be for children. We at MaxAir strongly urge only children over the age of 6+ allowed to experience our products. Most trampolines by MaxAir are intended for active, sporting adults and children. As a parent, carefully judge wether or not your child or children are responsible enough to enjoy their maximum air time.
How Much Space Do You Have for a Trampoline?
The next thing you need to know is how much space you will need. If you have a smaller yard, you may be concerned about finding a trampoline that fits in your yard. Make sure you know the size of your yard and also the size of the trampoline. You will need to know how much space the trampoline takes up and if there is enough space around it. If not, draw the measurements on paper first or ask to see if someone from the trampoline company can check your yard to see if it will fit.
Which Shape Trampoline is Right for You?
Trampolines come in round, oval, square, and rectangular shapes. MaxAir’s trampolines are typically square or rectangular. They are best for professional use and high jumping. Our trampolines are built for gymnastics and athletics, meaning you can do tricks, flips, and complex jumps on, or rather, above and over them. If you plan to use the trampoline for gymnastics, our Super Tramps are an excellent choice for back-to-front momentum-based routines. For extreme athletes, our line of Super Quads will keep you safely in control and center-straight for multiple twists, turns and off-axis movement.
Other Tips on Buying a Trampoline
Before you buy a trampoline, consider your budget and other trampoline accessories you might need. Purchase accessories like a pitch mat or weather cover. Invest in an optional netting enclosure or thicker, deluxe spring padding to cover the gaps left between the bed and frame. These are essential for protecting your investment and ensuring that all your jumpers are safe when they are practicing their tricks.
