Springfree Trampoline

A trampoline that’s going to last, and that’s going to be safe, would make the ultimate Christmas gift this year… and is sure to make the kids squeal with excitement when you do the big Christmas morning reveal!

Springfree’s innovative design is the world’s safest, highest quality and longest lasting trampoline supported by a full 10-year warranty on the entire trampoline. To bring you the safest trampoline Springfree has effectively removed the impact areas that cause injuries on a traditional, spring-based trampoline.

KEY SAFETY FEATURES: 

  • Mat Rods: Springfree trampoline’s flexible composite rods lie beneath the jumping surface and out of harm’s way. Spring-based trampolines have springs that will pinch or injure a jumper.
  • Hidden Frame: Springfree trampoline’s frame is well beneath the jumping surface – you can’t hit it, period. The frame on a spring-based trampoline is a hazard to jumpers, resulting in significant fractures, lacerations and head injuries. 
  • SoftEdge® Mat: Springfree trampoline’s SoftEdge mat is over 30 times more shock-absorbent than the pads. The pads on spring-based trampolines do not protect from injury, lose much of their shock-absorbency after the first impact and have the shortest lifespan of any part on the trampoline.
  • FlexiNet® Enclosure: Springfree trampoline’s FlexiNet enclosure uses flexible net rods to cushion jumpers and prevent falls. Spring-based trampoline enclosures use steel poles to fasten the net to the trampoline, allowing jumpers to collide with a solid pole and be dropped down onto the frame and springs.
