Jump safely on a safe trampoline!
Jump safely, jump freely!
Buying a trampoline can be quite difficult. You want a safe trampoline, preferably even the safest trampoline around, but also one that has the quality to last for years. We do not make any concessions when it comes to quality and safety.
We are happy to explain the differences between the trampolines, edges, springs, mats and frames.
This way you can make the best choice regarding your own situation and budget.

The space you have available can determine the type of trampoline best suited for you. If your space is limited, we recommend using a safety net to ensure the safety of the jumpers.
For a “built-up trampoline” we recommend that you keep at least 1.5 meters of free space around the trampoline
A minimum of 0.5 meters is sufficient for a trampoline with a safety net
For trampolines with a diameter of over 2 meters, keep at least 5 meters of free space above the trampoline
For a trampoline without safety net we recommend a soft surrounding surface. Place the trampoline on flat ground so that all legs touch the ground.
The differences in quality between trampoline frames are reflected in the thickness and quality of the steel, the welds and the galvanization (protective layer against rust formation) of the trampoline.
The minimum thickness for the steel is 1.8 millimeters. The quality of the steel is also important. Chinese steel (unlike Taiwanese steel) is often made from waste material. As a result, it has an uncertain composition. Taiwanese steel will last a minimum of 15 to 20 years and, due to its thickness and quality, offers support for stronger welds
The pipes must be properly treated against rusting. This can be done with powder coating or by galvanizing. Powder coating scratches more easily, which still causes pipes to rust. A zinc layer (galvanizing) is less likely to damage and therefore protects your frame against rust for a longer period of time. A strong zinc layer is at least 20Mu thick on both the in- and outside
The thickness of the steel frame also determines the thickness of the welds. Certain brands work with thinner pipes and compensate this by welding a loose plate to the pipe, or by placing a T-piece of thick steel around the pipe. A plate makes the trampoline fragile with lateral forces and a T-piece weakens the edge between the tube and the coupling. Make sure you pick a trampoline frame with thick steel and strong welds.

The trampoline mats are woven from polypropylene. Differences in the quality of jumping mats can be found in the attachment points for the springs and the finish of the mat.
To avoid injuries mats need to be completely smooth. This process of smoothing is skipped by many Chinese manufactureres to reduce costs. All Avyna jumping mats are produced and smoothed in Vietnam
For the Inground- and Flatlvel trampoline we have an extreme open airflow mat. The mat ensures that the air under the trampoline will leave through the jumping mat. Click here how the extre open airflow mat works
As a mounting ring for the springs, cheaper brands often choose an open steel ring. These rings have a thin zinc coating and experience a lot of friction which causes them to erode and rust quickly. As a result, the attachment point to the mat wears out. The open steel rings not only wear out faster, but they are also dangerous for children who can easily get their fingers stuck in between. Our so-called D-ring is completely closed and has a strong galvanized steel plate incorporated in the plastic. This not only keeps the ring from eroding quickly, it is also 1.5 times stronger than a normal steel ring.
The strength and quality of a protective edge is determined by the thickness and strength of the plastic (PVC) and the thickness of the foam. This edge functions as an important protection against getting caught in the springs, even if someone lands directly on it from a greater height.
The plastic edge is sometimes made of material that resembles construction tarpaulin. This is often weathered after two years, because trampolines are generally outside
PVC sheaths can be made by pressing two layers of PVC together with a nylon net in between. A slightly stronger option is a 'coated' version, where a nylon net is immersed in a PVC bath. Avyna advises to maintain a minimum thickness of 0.3 millimeters as a PVC thickness
If weather-resistant foam is used for the edges, the edges will last considerably longer
The thickness of the foam then provides the cushioning and stiffness of the protective edge. A thickness of at least 2 centimeters is required to ensure safety
Finally, it is important that the protective edges completely cover the springs and have a strong attachement, so that they do not shift easily. This result in a smaller chance that someone will slip under.

Differences in springs are in the length of the spring and the degree to which the springs are rust resistant.
The springs largely determine the resilience of the trampoline. Longer springs provide more resilience
Springs made from a fully galvanized sheet hardly rust because they are completely covered with a thick layer of zinc. These springs can be recognized by their color
Shiny springs are often galvanized only after manufacture. They are coated with a thinner layer of zinc that does not cover the entire spring, so the chance of rust forming is very high. These springs can be recognized by their shiny color
Protective caps ensure that the sharp end of the spring is well protected.
Trampoline safety net
If your trampoline is not In-Ground and you still want to guarantee safety, a safety net is a good option. The following points of attention are important when choosing a safety net.
As with the protective edges, the quality of a safety net is determined by factors such as the thickness of the PVC and the foam. Also keep in mind that the PVC needs a minimum thickness of 0.3 millimeters and that the foam is weatherproof
The same requirements are imposed on the frame of the safety net as on the frame of the trampoline. Quality steel, full galvanization and a thickness of at least 1.8 millimeters is therefore recommended.
