Sites from Dick’s Sporting Goods to Springfree Trampoline to Target can offer any number of trampolines; perhaps even more importantly, you will also receive several sites which advise the buyer on how to purchase a trampoline for your family.
Trampolines are available in a variety of shapes and sizes. The basic shapes are round, rectangular, square, and octagonal. For backyard jumps, you’ll want to use a round trampoline. Rectangular trampolines are meant for a bigger space. Straight sides also allow the jumper to orient him or herself while jumping and turning. In a rectangular trampoline, the springs are very flexible, allowing the jumper to go higher on each bounce. Square trampolines, similar to rectangular trampolines, are meant for a broader space, but they don’t allow the jumper to go as high. An octagonal trampoline allows the jumper to have a wider space in which to jump but also to keep him or her from being drawn into the middle of the space.
Most recreational models have a diameter anywhere from six feet to sixteen or seventeen feet. To be safe, the trampolines will need overhead space. You should allow for twenty four feet of clearance above the trampoline; there must also be a clearance horizontally of two feet on all sides of the trampoline.
In addition to the space required, there’s a few safety suggestions jumpers should follow: A) Have one person jumping on the trampoline at a time; B) Have a spotter or spotters supervise the jumper; C) Don’t jump on a trampoline bed that’s wet; and D) don’t use the trampoline in bad weather, especially gusty winds.
Any number of sites will be happy to offer a trampoline for sale, but it’s up to the individual buyers to be safe with that purchase once the trampoline comes home.
