Parents are always looking for ways to get their kids outside with safe active play. But kids don’t think about putting safety first – even though you’d like them to.
Thankfully, armed with the right information, parents can give kids the safe backyard play they deserve. We are proud to announce that our Medium Round trampoline has recently been recommended by two independent and unbiased consumer groups in Australia and New Zealand.
Australia organization CHOICE® has just announced the results of their latest testing on trampolines – revealing how 8 prominent trampoline brands stand up when tested against the Australian safety standard. CHOICE® tested one size from 8 popular trampoline brands against the Australian Safety Standard (AS 4989:2015), including Springfree Trampoline’s R79 Medium Round.
Of all the trampolines tested, Springfree Trampoline was the only trampoline brand to pass all the safety tests, receiving an impressive CHOICE® score of 93%.
Springfree Trampoline is the only recommended trampoline by unbiased and independent body Consumer NZ. The Springfree Medium Round Trampoline is the only trampoline in the Southern Hemisphere to pass all the safety tests against the Australian Safety Standard AS 4989:2015.
Consumer NZ General Manager, Derek Bonnar, said the “Springfree is the only model Consumer NZ is recommending from the seven trampolines in its latest test”.
CHOICE® testing against the current Australian standard for trampolines covered key structural and safety tests, including:
Structural integrity – A range of tests that applied weights and forces to the trampoline frame, mat and enclosure to ensure the trampoline won’t break or deform under stress.
Impact test – Tested the padding and enclosure to measure how well they reduce the impact force. The structural and impact tests are tough tests and only the better trampolines pass them.
Product marking and safety information – Safety warnings and information that should be present, on the trampoline itself.
In addition to the key structural and safety tests, CHOICE® also included in their assessment how clear and comprehensive the instructions are, how easy the trampoline is to assemble and move around, and how easy it is to enter and exit the enclosure.
At Springfree we believe trampoline safety shouldn’t be an option. We apply the same high safety standards of the R79 to our full range of trampolines. So you have peace of mind that your kids are playing safe.
