NZ's Safest Trampoline

NZ's Safest

The only trampoline brand consistently recommended by Consumer NZ.

Ten leading market trampoline brands were tested by Consumer NZ & the CHOICE® Group against the Australian Safety Standards (AS 4989:2015). Based on the safety testing, the Springfree R79, rated the best model tested because of its strong, durable frame and enclosure and the way in which the trampoline protects the user from any impacts against the frame, mat or enclosure.

Springfree was the only one to pass and for a third consecutive time. An accolade no other trampoline brand has achieved. View the complete range that were tested to the Australian Safety Standards (AS 4989:2015).

The Only One to Pass the Safety Test

Only the Springfree Trampoline (Medium Round) had no safety failures. The other 9 trampolines tested 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.

"Our trampoline safety tests look at how children can use the product in real life as well as how the trampoline performs if you follow all safety instructions," says CHOICE® testing expert, Chris Barnes. "We look at what can happen if children bounce against the enclosure net or land hard on the padding."


Meeting Safety Standards

Consumer NZ tests trampolines to the Australian standard (AS 4989:2015) which are not mandatory.
Unfortunately, the current Australian standard for trampolines is only voluntary, which means manufacturers are not required by law to meet them
Springfree is supporting the call for a General Safety Provision – a law that puts the onus on manufacturers and retailers to ensure their products are safe
before they're available to purchase.
