Consumer NZ have just released findings of their NZ trampoline survey, with Springfree being the only brand they recommend from the brands they tested.
Only the Springfree had no major safety failures. The other 6 either failed structural tests, didn’t protect the user from impact on the frame or enclosure, or had dangerous head entrapment problems or pinch points.
Amongst trampolines tested, a number of prominent brands that are promoted as being designed for safety were shown not to be. Consumer found:
Failed 4 major safety tests: the frame, mat or enclosure failed a structural integrity test, there are impact hazards for the user, and there are possible pinch or crush points.
Failed 3 major safety tests: the frame failed a structural integrity test and there are hazards from pinch or crush points.
Consumer NZ general manager business, Derek Bonnar, said the Springfree is the only model Consumer NZ is recommending from the seven trampolines in its latest test.
