Trampoline Placement

For safe use of the trampoline please be aware of the following points when selecting a place for your trampoline:

  • Make sure the area has good lighting
  • Make sure the surface area is level
  • Make sure the surface is firm and stable, i.e. grassed area or approved safety matting
  • Do not place the trampoline on concrete or similar hard surfaces as this will cause higher wear rates on the trampoline joints which will affect your warranty.
  • Make sure the trampoline has sufficient overhead clearance, a minimum of 8m (26 feet) clearance from cables, wires, tree limbs and other possible hazards from ground level is required
  • Make sure there are no obstructions at all beneath the trampoline - no foreign objects, garden rocks, taps, etc.
  • In terms of horizontal clearance, please ensure that no hazardous objects are near the trampoline such as tree limbs, other recreational objects (e.g. swing sets, swimming pools), electrical wiring, walls, fences, structures, concrete or other hard surfaces or any other stored items. This is especially important due to the natural take up of weight if the users end up pushing against the netting.
  • Minimum clearance on all sides of the trampoline required is 1.5m for trampolines with a full net enclosure.
  • Make sure the position of the trampoline is not exposed to high winds NOTE: The surface area of the mat and the net makes the trampoline susceptible to high winds, the trampoline can become airborne and move uncontrollably, causing major damage to itself or anything in its path. As an example trampolines can become airborne and become entangled in power lines creating secondary hazards. For further suggestions on securing your trampoline, contact your supplier.
  • Make sure the position of the trampoline does not put users at risk from other hazards, e.g. recreational or road going vehicles, other people, pets, animals, etc.
