About Springfree Trampoline

The Springfree™ Trampoline’s design process spanned 14 years, and incorporated millions of dollars in research and testing before its launch.  The unique design removes all impact zones associated with traditional “old-style” trampolines.  Springfree™ Trampoline replaces traditional steel springs with a flexible fiberglass rod system, has removed the hard frame at the jumping surface and need for additional padding through its engineered SoftEdge™ Mat, and has a unique FlexiNet™ jumper enclosure, which flexes to absorb the impact of wayward jumpers.

There are currently five models of the Springfree™ Trampoline available in North America with our innovative design for providing children with the ultimate in trampoline safety.   Springfree operates in several countries around the world, including North America, Australia, New Zealand, UK and China.
