A close look at trampoline standards

A close look at trampoline standards

Trampolines are subject to several standards to ensure user safety.

It is therefore important to pay attention to the following:

  • The NF EN 13219 standard regarding the manufacturing of trampolines;
  • The NF EN 913 standard relative to the testing and use of trampolines;
  • The NF EN 71-14 standard concerning the safety of toys;
  • The TUV GS certificate obtained after having passed tests carried out by an independent organization.

To enable you to fully enjoy our outdoor trampolines safely and securely, they all comply with the standards listed above, and are certified by Interteck, an independent organization.

Zipped vertical opening

All our trampolines and safety enclosure spare parts feature a zipped vertical opening.

To comply with the EN 71-14 standard created in December 2018 and to ensure user safety, L-shaped openings are no longer authorized by the French authorities.

For additional safety, the opening of our trampolines features a sturdy zipper stitched onto the textile net with thread of a different color. This opening lets users of all ages easily enter and exit the jumping mat.

Maximal weight load standard

Maximal weight load standard

The authorized maximal weight load indicates the weight a trampoline can bear at one given time. Beyond this load, the safety of the trampoline is no longer guaranteed.

According to the EN 71-14 created in December 2018, the size of the frame and height of the trampoline that determine a user’s maximal weight.

The size of a round trampoline frame corresponds to its diameter. As for non-circular trampolines, the diameter is calculated by measuring the maximal distance between two extremities of the frame (such as the largest diagonal of a rectangular trampoline).

The standard requires us to indicate a maximal weight load of 50 kg. for our trampolines measuring 250cm in diameter. However, in each product line these trampolines have the same technical characteristics as the larger trampolines.

Height of the safety enclosure

Safety enclosures are mandatory for medium- and large-sized above-ground trampolines in order to minimize the risks of falling off the mat while jumping.

Safety enclosures are not required for in-ground trampolines (medium- and large-sized models) since these may be delivered with a cushioned floor area in place of the safety net.

The required minimal height of the jumping area is related to the size of the trampoline frame given that the potential jumping height depends on the diameter of the jumping mat and the maximal weight of the user.

Safety enclosures are not required for mini-trampolines because of their low jumping height and / or low falling potential.

The EN 71-14 standard created in December 2018 defines the height of the safety enclosure and the spare parts such as the net posts

  • at least 1.5 m for mini and medium-sized trampolines;
  • at least 1.8 m for large trampolines.
