When you compare a Springfree Trampoline with a traditional trampoline, you’re not comparing apples with apples.
Springfree Trampoline was born out of a desire to make trampolines safe. The inventor, Dr Keith Alexander, completely revolutionised and redesigned the traditional trampoline to remove all the parts that cause harm to the jumper.
Once your child is in your Springfree Trampoline, there are no parts of the trampoline that can harm them.
Springfree is a SoftEdge™ trampoline that uses strong, flexible composite rods in place of springs with a Flexinet™ enclosure that keeps the jumper from falling off the trampoline.
Springfree Trampoline provides a bounce similar to a traditional, spring-based trampoline in terms of how high you can jump. However, the feel of the bounce differs. The smoother bounce of a Springfree Trampoline is much gentler on knees and joints.
In 2012 consumer watchdog CHOICE reviewed 12 popular trampolines sold in Australia. Springfree Trampoline was the only model they recommended as safe and CHOICE also concluded that Springfree had the most comfortable bounce.
Unlike a traditional trampoline, there is no hard frame at the edge of a Springfree Trampoline. The SoftEdge™ on a Springfree is just that – soft! And it is 30 times more shock absorbent than pads found on traditional trampolines.
Springfree Trampoline’s design has completely removed the springs and steel frame at jumping level, so there is no need for pads.
Traditional trampolines require pads to protect the jumper from falling onto the steel frame and springs and independent safety tests show that these pads do not absorb enough impact to sufficiently protect jumpers.
Springfree Trampoline’s FlexiNet™ enclosure is strong and fully flexible. It will cushion wayward jumpers and gently redirect them back to the center of the trampoline.
Traditional trampolines may also have enclosures but they aren’t flexible and are held up with rigid steel poles which introduce another impact risk. Basic enclosures only stop jumpers falling off and jumpers end up landing on the springs and frame.
Our FlexiNet™ enclosure system is designed to catch wayward jumpers and guide them safely back to the center of the mat.
Even in cases where the FlexiNet is challenged by intentionally jumping into the top section of the enclosure, its key design characteristics will maintain jumper safety. It is possible for a skilled jumper to make the net flex to the ground but the FlexiNet will still absorb the jumper's impact and decrease the speed at which the jumper is lowered to the ground, minimizing the eventual impact.
The FlexiNet™ is an integral safety feature of a Springfree Trampoline that comes with the trampoline when you purchase it. It is not attached to the mat, so in theory you could install the trampoline without it. However falling off the trampoline accounts for almost 50% of all trampoline related injuries which means the FlexiNet is really important for jumper safety.
Springfree Trampoline's composite rods are designed to work in unison, bending inwards as a jumper bounces. The mat movement is negligible and has no effect on jumpers.
The Springfree Trampoline design has eliminated 90% of product-related injuries that the traditional trampoline design causes, however the one injury causing element we haven’t been able to eliminate is jumper collision. To ensure your family avoids injury altogether, we highly recommend a one-at-a-time rule.
To understand how strong a Springfree Trampoline is, there are two weights you need to be aware of - the Structural Load Capacity and the Maximum User Weight. The first relates to strength and the second relates to safety.
The Structural Load Capacity is the amount of static weight a trampoline can hold. A Springfree is strong enough to hold more than this weight, but this limit allows for a safe margin before the mat will touch the ground.
The Maximum User Weight is based on how heavy you are and how high you jump. It is about ensuring jumpers don’t ‘bottom out’ (touch the ground while jumping). The Australian Safety Standards allows for a minimum 15% safety margin to ensure that even when you jump about as high as 1m off the mat, and you weigh the maximum user weight, you won’t touch the ground.
|Springfree Model||Structural Load Capacity||Maximum User Weight|
|R54 Compact Round||380kgs||80kgs|
|R79 Medium Round||500kgs||100kgs|
|O77 Medium Oval||500kgs||100kgs|
|O92 Large Oval||500kgs||100kgs|
|S113 Large Square||500kgs||100kgs|
|S155 Jumbo Square||500kgs||100kgs|
All components of the Springfree Trampoline are weather-resistant, including UV stabilized mat and net rods, a galvanized and powder-coated steel frame and a UV stabilized polypropylene mat and safety enclosure.
Your Springfree Trampoline can be used all year and does not need to be covered or packed away even during the harshest summers or the coldest winters.
Springfree Trampoline is a global product. We source the individual parts from around the world from our own specialist suppliers who are selected based on their ability to provide us with the highest quality componentry that we demand.
It all comes together in our own production facility in China where each component undergoes rigorous testing. Every frame is assembled and each trampoline is individually inspected to ensure that you receive the best quality trampoline we’ve ever made.
Yes. The high performance rods on a Springfree Trampoline are housed in light plastic sheaths that protect the composite rods from UV deterioration. These sheaths may deteriorate over long periods of time as they take the full force of UV exposure but they can be easily replaced.

Choosing the Springfree Trampoline that is right for your family simply comes down to two things:
We encourage you to keep in mind that your children are going to keep growing (and keep on loving their Springfree!) so we recommend you choose the biggest trampoline that your yard can accommodate.
Top tip: to work out how much space the model you’re considering will take up in your yard, we recommend laying out your garden hose in the shape of the trampoline. This will give you a good visual idea of how much space the trampoline will take up. Remember, you need 1.5m of clear space around the trampoline for safe jumping.
A clear space is required around the trampoline to account for the FlexiNet. We recommend 1.5m of safe lateral clearance around your trampoline.
Minimum space required to set up each model:
|Springfree Model||Trampoline Size||Minimum Space Required|
|R54 Compact Round||2.5m diameter||5.5m x 5.5m|
|R79 Medium Round||3.0m diameter||6.0m x 6.0m|
|O77 Medium Oval||2.4m x 3.4m||5.4m x 6.4m|
|O92 Large Oval||2.4m x 4.0m||5.4m x 7m|
|S113 Large Square||3.4m x 3.4m||6.4m x 6.4m|
|S155 Jumbo Square||4.0m x 4.0m||7m x 7m|
