We get so many questions from potential new in-ground and above ground trampoline owners that we put together a list of what you need to know about trampolines.

What You Need To Know About Trampolines

What is the frame made of? Inground trampoline (IGT) systems use the same 14 gauge galvanized, USA steel frame and 18 gauge galvanized, USA steel wall panels and all stainless steel hardware.

What is the IGT frame/spring pad made from? IGT pads are specially made for in-ground trampoline applications and are constructed with the best 22 oz. vinyl that will stand up to all elements and conditions. Padded with American made, one inch, high-density foam that will keep the children safe. We use a unique bungee system to secure the pad in place while also giving a bit of shock absorption to the attachment points so your pad will always be right where it’s supposed to be with less stress to the seams. And the bungees are replaceable if one ever gives way.

What is the spring count and spring size? We use American made, pre-galvanized or optional Stainless Steel 8.5 x 1 1/8 inch springs. Our 12’IGT system has 96 springs and our 15’ IGT system has 120 springs, the highest spring counts in the industry.

What is the maximum jumper weight? This is a question we field more often than any other question and the answer is 450 pounds.
