Springfree Trampoline R54 Compact Round is found to be the safest design of all the trampolines reviewed and the only trampoline recommended in a recent test carried out by the People’s Watchdog CONSUMER.
CONSUMER is the number one advocate of consumer rights in New Zealand and the test was conducted by an external laboratory.
CONSUMER tested 5 trampolines in New Zealand (and their sister publication CHIOICE tested 12 trampolines) against the Australian Standard (currently voluntary in New Zealand) for safety risks, ease of assembly and jumping performance. The Springfree Trampoline R54 was found to be the safest trampoline design and judged to be a well-made product with high quality components and manufacturing tolerances. They also judged the Springfree as having the best bounce of the models tested.
Springfree Trampoline was the only trampoline to fully pass the shock test. The other trampolines that did not receive a CONSUMER recommendation failed the shock test and pose potential strangulation and/or limb entrapment hazards between the enclosure net and bed and/or frame.
Springfree Trampoline is the only design that has effectively removed the four areas that can cause injury:
1) the springs
2) the frame at the jumping surface
3) the risk of falls to the ground
4) the risk of falls into rigid enclosure poles
At Springfree Trampoline, we are pleased to see independent research being conducted by CONSUMER. We will continue to work hard to ensure children are not exposed to the risk of severe injury in the backyard, so families can enjoy quality outdoor exercise, safely.
