Planning your budget for an inground or an above ground trampoline? Don’t forget to budget for the highest quality trampoline, mat and springs you can but also for an enclosure. How to choose a trampoline enclosure is something we talk with potential trampoline owners about all the time.
Just as when you buy a swimming pool there is safety equipment you will invest in — a pool cover, pool alarms and more — there is safety equipment you can (and should) buy for your trampoline. A trampoline safety enclosure is as important to the safety of those who use the trampoline as are covers for the springs and a high quality jump mat.
How To Choose A Trampoline Enclosure
There are several styles of trampoline enclosures and they vary based on who will use the trampoline and whether it is an above ground or an inground trampoline.
Trampolines purchased online or from toy stores, may not be as safe as you’d imagined they would be. When you buy a trampoline from a dealer who only specializes in trampolines and trampoline equipment can, and will, provide higher quality and therefore safer trampolines. When you’re buying a trampoline for you and your family you want to get one of the highest, and safest quality available, right?
Look for a trampoline enclosure that is:
- Easy to install (this is true if you’re installing it on your own
- That is tall enough to prevent any accidents from happening if anyone jumps too high
- That has small enough netting that no one will get their arms or legs caught in the mesh
- That has a safety zipper strong enough to withstand someone bumping into it
