Why Are In-Ground Trampolines Great?

“We want a trampoline!” Have you been hearing this from your children? Are you the one who wants an in-ground trampoline or an above-ground trampoline? If so, we want to share with you why in-ground trampolines are great. We think they are so great that we built our business around offering high-quality, made in the USA trampolines for our clients from across the country!

What is one of the main reasons people want an in-ground trampoline? Well, there are two!

  1. They reduce height injury
  2. They blend in with your backyard landscaping
  3. BONUS: They provide great bounce!

Why Are In-Ground Trampolines Great?

Sit back, relax and read on!

  1. Safety matters. The biggest thing you want to consider for any purchase is SAFETY! An in-ground trampoline is considered safer than above ground styles because of the height factor. With an in-ground trampoline, the distance between the hard ground and a jumper is reduced and that could be safer. Keep in mind that if you jump outside of the trampoline mat area you can still get injured — be safe always.
  2. No exposed metal. An IGT (in-ground trampoline) is safer than above ground trampoline because there are no exposed metal pieces or springs. Yes, we do also sell spring covers for both above ground and in-ground trampolines. The pad covers the lip of the trampoline retaining wall, adding an additional couple of inches protection
  3. We carry safety nets for both in-ground and above ground trampolines.
  4. Aesthetically-appealing option. This style trampoline will not obstruct your view of the backyard. Your sightline will remain as is until you see the happy children jumping on the trampoline!
  5. Performance matters. We have had our customers reach out to us and let us know they purchased the IGT system for the athlete in the family. No matter if you’re a gymnast, runner, martial arts expert or someone looking to get in shape without risk of injury, an IGT is ideal.

6 Things To Look For When Buying A Trampoline

You’ve been thinking about adding something new and fun to your backyard and since you already have a swimming pool, why not add an in-ground or above ground trampoline? We have put together a list of 6 things to look for when buying a trampoline.

Some of these may seem like common sense, but if you have never purchased a trampoline before, you may not know what questions to ask or where to get started.

We are here to help!

6 Things To Look For When Buying A Trampoline

  1. Check out the weight the trampoline springs and mat can hold. Know who the heaviest person is who will use the trampoline and buy accordingly. If you don’t know this information you could invest in a trampoline that could get damaged, or not be as “springy” as you’d hoped.
  2. Where can you get replacement parts? If you buy online (which we don’t recommend unless you’re buying from an experienced trampoline company) where will the parts come from? If you’re buying a trampline that doesn’t have readily available parts when you need them, what will you do? Don’t let your investment go to waste, call us because we sell trampolines and any replacement parts.
  3. Buy an enclosure for the trampoline. Above ground and in-ground trampolines should have an enclosure to prevent anyone from falling off and getting hurt. Remember, though the enclosure isn’t meant to hold weight if you’re thinking of bouncing off of it — don’t.
  4. What safety features does the trampoline come with and what other ones should you invest in? You definitely want spring covers. These will prevent anyone from getting pinched by the springs and will also help keep your legs from falling through.
  5. Make sure you have the space large enough to accommodate the trampoline. You need not only the ground space, but the head space. Don’t put the trampoline by any overhead hazards like trees or overhangs on the house.
  6. If you are buying a trampoline that will be used by a child under the age of five, look for one that has handlebars for safety.
