About Springfree Trampoline

  1. Why is a Springfree Trampoline safer than other trampoline models?

    The Springfree Trampoline patented design features have eliminated 90% of product related trampoline injuries. The key features that make Springfree the world’s safest are:

    Mat rods provide the safest bounce - Instead of springs which tend to stretch, rust and trap toes and feet, Springfree’s revolutionary design uses patented flexible rods. The rods provide a smooth, non-jarring bounce and lie beneath the jumping surface, out of harm’s way.

    SoftEdge™ Mat removes hard edges - Our proprietary mat is 30 times more shock-absorbent than pads found on traditional trampolines.

    FlexiNet™ Safety Enclosure keeps the jumper on the trampoline - The patented FlexiNet enclosure has flexible rods to cushion jumpers and prevent falls. The jumper is directed back to the center and cannot make contact with the net rods. The zippered net also ensures jumpers cannot fall through the opening.

    Frame situated beneath the jumping surface out of harm’s way – Additionally, with three layers of rust-preventative coating, our steel frames are built to endure even the most extreme weather.

  2. Is a Springfree Trampoline as bouncy as a traditional trampoline?

    Springfree Trampoline provides a bounce similar to a traditional, spring-based trampoline in terms of how high you can jump. More porosity means it pumps less air and instead gives the energy back to the jumper. You can get a lot more height with more porosity. Springfree Trampoline mat fabric provides porosity equivalent to traditional trampolines of the same size.

    However, the feel of the bounce differs as Springfree Trampoline has a smooth, non-jarring bounce. The deep, soft bounce of a Springfree Trampoline is much gentler on knees and joints for the jumpers. For more information, watch the “Is it bouncy?” video.

  3. How soft is the edge of a Springfree Trampoline?

    Springfree Trampoline’s SoftEdge™ Mat is 30 times more shock absorbent then pads found on traditional trampolines.

  4. Why doesn't a Springfree Trampoline have pads around the edge?

    The Springfree Trampoline proprietary design does not need pads around the edge! The SoftEdge™ itself has much more give than normal safety pads. In fact, the Springfree Trampoline edge is equivalent to the 70mm thick padding used on Olympic standard trampolines.

    Traditional trampolines require safety pads to protect the jumper from falling on the steel frame, falling through or getting caught in the springs. However, independent safety tests show that these pads do not absorb enough impact to sufficiently protect jumpers from contact with the springs and frame. Springfree Trampoline’s superior design has completely removed the springs and steel frame at jumping level, so there is no need for safety pads.

  5. Other trampolines have enclosures - what is different about the Springfree™ Trampoline enclosure?

    Springfree Trampoline’s FlexiNet™ enclosure is strong yet provides a unique flexibility that gently redirects wayward jumpers back to the centre of the trampoline.

    Some spring-based trampolines may have enclosures but they are not flexible and are held up with rigid steel poles, which introduce another impact risk. Basic enclosures only stop jumpers from falling off. There is a risk that these jumpers could make impact with the springs and frame.

    The FlexiNet™ on a Springfree Trampoline is UV-resistant to prevent deterioration from the sun and other harsh weather conditions.

  6. Can a jumper hit the ground even though there’s a net?

    Our FlexiNet™ enclosure system is designed to catch wayward jumpers and guide them safely back to the center of the mat.

    Even in cases where the FlexiNet is challenged by intentionally jumping into the top section of the enclosure, its proprietary design will maintain jumper safety. It is possible for a skilled jumper to make the net flex to the ground but the FlexiNet will still absorb the jumper's impact and decrease the speed at which the jumper is lowered to the ground, minimizing the eventual impact.

  7. Can I have a Springfree Trampoline without the enclosure?

    All Springfree Trampolines are sold with the FlexiNet™ enclosure. While it is possible to install Springfree Trampoline without the FlexiNet™, we do not recommend doing so. The FlexiNet™ enclosure is one of the most important safety components of the Springfree Trampoline. It is designed to gently guide jumpers back to the centre of the trampoline and eliminates the risk of them falling to the ground.

    For more information about the safety enclosure net of your Springfree Trampoline, check out this short video.

  8. 8. Do the Springfree Trampoline rods twist?

    Springfree Trampolines do not have any twisting action from the composite rods, it is a lateral movement.

    For more information, check out this video.

  9. Why do you recommend only one jumper at a time?

    While the Springfree Trampoline is the only trampoline to accomplish the elimination of 90% of product-related injuries from traditional trampolines, trampoline injuries can also occur from jumper collisions if more than one person jumps at a time. To ensure your family avoids injury altogether, we highly recommend enforcing the ‘one at a time rule’ when jumping on the Springfree Trampoline.

  10. 10. How much weight can a Springfree Trampoline take?

    To understand the strength of a Springfree Trampoline, there are two weights you need to be aware of - the Structural Load Capacity and the Maximum User Weight. The first relates to strength and the second relates to safety.

    The Structural Load Capacity is the amount of static weight a trampoline can hold. A Springfree is strong enough to hold more than this weight, but this limit allows for a safe margin before the mat will touch the ground.

    The Maximum User Weight is based on how heavy you are and how high you jump. It is about ensuring jumpers don’t ‘bottom out’ (touch the ground while jumping).

    Springfree ModelStructural Load CapacityMaximum User Weight
    R30 Small Round380kgs (838lbs)80kgs (175lbs)
    R54 Compact Round380kgs (838lbs)80kgs (175lbs)
    R79 Medium Round500kgs (1100lbs)100kgs (220lbs)
    R132 Jumbo Round500kgs (1100lbs)100kgs (220lbs)
    O47 Compact Oval380kgs (838lbs)80kgs (175lbs)
    O77 Medium Oval500kgs (1100lbs)100kgs (220lbs)
    O92 Large Oval500kgs (1100lbs)100kgs (220lbs)
    S113 Large Square500kgs (1100lbs)100kgs (220lbs)
    S155 Jumbo Square500kgs (1100lbs)100kgs (220lbs)
  11. Is the Springfree Trampoline weather-resistant? Can it stay up through all seasons?

    All components of the Springfree Trampoline are weather-resistant, including UV stabilized mat and net rods, a galvanized and powder-coated steel frame and a UV stabilized polypropylene mat and safety enclosure.

    Your Springfree Trampoline can be used all year and does not need to be covered or packed away even during the harshest summers or the coldest winters. Springfree Trampoline mats can hold quite a lot of weight, but in very heavy snowfalls you will need to brush off the excess snow (with a soft-bristle brush, not a shovel) to avoid extra tension on the fiberglass mat rods located beneath the jumping surface.

  12. Where is Springfree Trampoline made?

    When developing the Springfree Trampoline, our inventor, Keith Alexander and his team of professional engineers created a superior design that focused on safety. The team sourced the world for the best quality materials and components. Further, we decided the only way to ensure safety was to build our own plant, with our own employees and our own quality control facilities. Our manufacturing facilities are located in China and we are proud to report one of the most stable workforces; having invested in education and childcare for our associates. We are the only Canadian sold trampoline company that is fully vertically integrated – from design, to manufacturing to dedicated offices and retail stores located within Canada. In order to ensure the integrity of the world’s safest trampoline, it was important to us to oversee all aspects of the manufacturing, delivery and servicing – to maintain the superior safety and quality.

    For more information check out this quick video which explains where the Springfree Trampoline comes from.

  13. Are the plastic covers necessary on the mat and net rods?

    Yes. The high-performance rods on a Springfree Trampoline are housed in light plastic sheaths that protect the composite rods from UV deterioration. These sheaths may deteriorate over long periods of time as they take the full force of UV exposure, but they can be replaced. The rods and sheaths are covered under our 10-year warranty. For further information, please contact our Customer Care Team at 1 877 586 7723.

Choosing a Springfree Trampoline

  1. How much space do I need around a Springfree Trampoline?

    The minimum space required in your yard is important for safety. We recommend a minimum of 4 feet clearance around the perimeter of the trampoline, away from walls, structures, fences and other play areas. The easiest way to think of the required space needed would be to add 8 ft to the length and width. For example, for the 11' x 11’ square you would need a clearance of 19' x 19'. That includes the footprint of the trampoline, which is 11' square, plus 4 feet on every side free of obstacles.

    Minimum space required to set up each model:

    Springfree ModelTrampoline SizeMinimum Space Required
    R30 Small Round6ft diameter14ft x 14ft
    R54 Compact Round8ft diameter16ft x 16ft

  1. How long is the warranty on a Springfree Trampoline?

    Starting in September 2017, we are proud to be the only trampoline to offer a full 10 year warranty on every component. Don’t be fooled by other trampoline warranties – independent research shows that many components of the competitors have reduced warranty periods.

    Springfree Trampoline warrants its products to be free of defects in material and workmanship under normal domestic use and service conditions which do not include general wear and tear, burns, cuts or snags.

    Please note, with all warranty claims, shipping charges apply.

    If you purchased your Springfree on or after September 1 2017, your trampoline is covered under a 10 year warranty. Learn more about your warranty details.

  2. Will someone come and install the Springfree Trampoline?

    Springfree is pleased to offer professional installation services at our retail locations, and within most of Canada via our third-party installer. However, there are some areas we are not able to service. Please contact our Customer Care Team at 1 877 586 7723 to see if installation is available in your area.

    If installation is not available in your area, or you would prefer to self-install, we recommend you view the install hub on our website where installation tips and videos are available for your viewing.

    Installation options may vary during COVID-19. Click here to learn more about COVID-19 FAQ.

  3. How long will it take to self-install a Springfree Trampoline?

    For first time assembly, we recommend allowing 2 people about 2-3 hours to install a Springfree Trampoline. Our installation videos should give you an idea of what is involved in the installation. We recommend you watch the installation videos and review the Install Manual before self-installing.

  4. What can I expect if my trampoline is being installed by a Springfree professional installer or an authorized third-party installer?

    Springfree Trampoline Installations

    Professional installers will come to your house and set up your trampoline, so you are immediately ready to jump! Our installers will take away all the packaging, so you do not have to deal with it. For health and safety reasons, we are unable to install your trampoline if the outside temperature falls to -10C or in bad weather conditions. If this situation occurs, we will call you to arrange an alternate date and time for installation.

    Third-party Installations

    If you do not live near a Springfree showroom, our third-party installer will carry out your installation. They will call you within 3 business days or once you get your tracking number to schedule an install date. Currently, there is no agreement with our national installers (We Install) where they have agreed to remove all packaging. Please note that third-party installation may add incremental time to the delivery of your order.

  5. Does a Springfree Trampoline require any maintenance or cleaning?

    We recommend regular visual inspections of your Springfree Trampoline to ensure everything is as it should be. We also advise removing any leaves, debris or snow from the trampoline.

    Be aware that some cleaning products contain harsh and abrasive chemicals, which can cause damage to your trampoline. For best care of your Springfree Trampoline use a mild dishwashing detergent.

    If you live in a snowy region, we recommend regularly clearing any accumulation of snow off your Springfree Trampoline with a soft bristle brush or broom. Stay clear of sharp bristles or snow shovels as they may damage the mat. With your brush or broom, reach onto the centre of the mat and pull the snow toward you and off the trampoline through the zippered door. With regular snow clearing, your Springfree Trampoline can be used year round! We also recommend this if you are not planning on jumping to ensure your trampoline remains in good working condition.

  6. Are spare parts available?

    Springfree is pleased to offer a full complement of replacement parts available for purchase. Please contact our Customer Care Team at 1 877 586 7723 to make an inquiry. You will need to provide your model and serial number when placing an order for a spare part.
