Currently there are few mandatory trampoline standards. This means that in most countries manufacturers have no obligation to ensure minimum levels of quality and safety. In North America major retailers require testing to confirm that the items they sell are made to standard.
On a Springfree Trampoline, impact zones have been engineered out of the jumping area. Our SoftEdge‚Ñ¢ is 30 times softer than existing standards for padding over springs on traditional trampolines.
We have compiled current trampoline standards from around the world for your reference.
ASTM F381 - 09a
This safety specification covers the components, the assembly, and the use of consumer trampolines. This specification is intended to reduce the demonstrated hazards associated with the use of trampolines by consumers in home environments.
ASTM F2225 - 09b

This European Standard specifies functional requirements for the use of gymnastic trampolines, and highlights basic safety requirements.
The Australian Standard outlines minimum acceptable design standards and appropriate consumer information requirements. Australian Standards strongly encourages manufacturers to minimize injury risk through design improvement. This standard is entirely voluntary. It does not specify or require an enclosure. A revision is in process as of July 2012.
