Beginners Guide To The Different Types of Trampoline

For many, there is one type of trampoline - the type you jump on and try not to fall off. However, if you are in the market to buy a trampoline, for the children to play on during the summer, there are several on the market that might be suitable.
Now all trampolines are essentially metal frames with a piece of fabric stretched across them for people to jump up and down on, but there are subtle differences between the various types. If you are looking for one to buy, the sheer selection can be overwhelming and at times, confusing. With that in mind, here is a beginners' guide to the many different types of trampolines that are available. To choose the best trampoline, check out the article at: https://medium.com/@BestTrampoline/how-to-choose-the-best-trampoline-5ad533e39b75.

The Recreational Trampoline

If you are looking at getting a trampoline for the garden so that the children can play on it over the summer, you are essentially looking for a recreational trampoline. These are often made with a Permatron UV resistant canvas so that they can stand up to being outside in the elements for long periods of time.


They also come in an assortment of shapes and sizes - large, small, rectangular circular and even octagonal. Essentially, they come in a large variety in order to cater for anyone and everyone's garden and yard. One thing to remember about recreational trampolines is that they can often be heavy in order to support the users' weight, so you may need help constructing and moving it.

The Competitive Trampoline

If you are an athlete and take part on the competition circuit, then you need a specific type of trampoline. Competitive trampolines have to be a certain size, shape and weight so that they can be easily transported and everyone is using similar equipment.
They are also made of specific materials; the frame is lighter than recreational trampolines, it has an open wave in the jumping mat allowing for air to pass through, the springs are stronger and are made with a special fabric to take the stress of athletic competition. Of course, these are going to be more pricey than normal, everyday trampolines, so only get one if your child is a budding athlete or in

The Water Trampoline


The water trampoline is purely for summer usage and not for any form of exercise or competition. It is strictly for fun and playing in the pool. The trampoline comes with large inflatable tubes that allow it to float in pools or at the beach. children and adults (depending on their weight!) can then jump on it to make creative entrances into the pool. Extremely popular during the summer time, water trampolines are essential if you're planning on having a pool party/BBQ.

The Mini-Trampoline/Rebounder

Made for indoor use and for personal exercise, mini-trampolines are used by people to keep fit. As they are relatively cheap and popular with many adults and children alike, mini-trampolines are ideal for those with limited space. Not only do they give a decent workout, but because of how they are made they won't propel you through your ceiling.
Whatever trampoline you end up buying, you'll find that there is no more fun way to exercise and keep the children entertained during the summer.

Look for a local hose and hydraulic shop. Some forklifts etc use metric fittings, so they may be able to fabricate for you.

They won't be 'aircraft spec', they'll be better.
