With a trampoline in the garden you can not only inspire your child for sporting activities, but also promote the body perception, balance and coordination of your offspring. However, what you should look for when buying a trampoline and what you should know for the safe handling of this device, you can read in the following article.
When buying a trampoline, you should first pay attention to the TÜV or GS mark. In addition, the steel frame should be sturdy and non-rusting, and the jump sheet should have a secure zig-zag seam. The trampoline must be accompanied by an instruction manual with the construction manual and further details.
The springs and the edge linkage should also be covered with padding to avoid injury. Keep in mind that springs are softer when jumping than shorter ones.
If the trampoline is intended for a toddler, it is advisable to build a net for protection.
For a fully equipped garden trampoline including ladder and safety net you have to spend between 300 and 400 €.
Jump with safety
The right location: Only place the device where there are no obstacles such as trees, hedges, fences or garden huts nearby.
Safe anchorage: For a stable stand, the trampoline must be securely anchored in the ground. Regularly check the anchorage, springs and connectors and inspect the trampoline for damage and defects. Cover the trampoline to protect it from the weather.
Not in all weathers: In rain or snow, your child should not jump because of increased risk of slipping and thus injury.
Alone, not lonely: Your child should not be left unattended on the trampoline, so stay within reach and make sure that not several children jump at the same time. Above all, it is not recommended to jump as a teenager or adult with the child together.
