Why We Wrote a Whitepaper
When you hear the term whitepaper, you wouldn‚Äôt normally associate it with a trampoline company. Your go-to‚Äôs for this kind of document would be with service-based businesses or products that are known to have a lot of technical detail and engineering behind them.
What you might not know, is that Springfree Trampoline falls into both those categories, and it is for that reason that we have created this whitepaper.
As an industry first, Dr Keith Alexander ‚Äì the inventor of Springfree Trampoline ‚Äì saw a need to provide more education around the safety, quality, and bounce of trampolines as well as detail just what it takes to build the World‚Äôs Safest Trampoline and how this compares to traditional trampolines.
There is a lot of misinformation in the market about safety and safety standards, for trampolines, and as a company that is extremely passionate about safe backyard play, it‚Äôs important that there is information available for parents to make educated choices for their children.
So, whether you are looking to understand the engineering feat and background of how the Springfree Trampoline came to life ‚Ä¶
‚Äú‚Ä¶From the trampoline designer‚Äôs perspective, the ideal approach is to re-think the concept from the ground up, engineering out unacceptable hazards by inventing new and better ways to deliver the aspects that children love, while at the same time, incorporating features that avoid the hazards and limit the consequences of misjudgement and over-enthusiastic behaviour‚Ä¶‚Äù
Or, you‚Äôre keen to understand what makes the Springfree the World‚Äôs Safest and how this compares with other brands in the market‚Ä¶
‚Äú‚Ä¶An ongoing analysis of worldwide trampoline injury data initiated in 1994 by Keith Alexander revealed that in order to build a safer trampoline three major impact zones would need to be engineered out of the traditional design‚Ä¶
After 11 years of engineering design, materials innovation, prototyping, and the application of significant international venture capital, a new trampoline technology was brought to the market, with these three major hazards designed out...‚Äù
Or, you simply want to know what the safety standards are and what is required to meet them‚Ä¶
‚Äú‚Ä¶Trampoline standards are concerned primarily with safety. They outline tests that trampolines must pass to ensure they are safe for children to use‚Ä¶
Currently trampoline standards are voluntary. This means manufacturers can choose whether or not to comply with them. This leaves it up to the customer to decide whether or not to buy a trampoline that does not comply with the standards‚Ä¶‚Äù
Then you will find the detail in this Whitepaper extremely enlightening.
It truly covers off all aspects of trampoline safety, Springfree engineering and quality, in detail, and in a very easy-to-read format.
Whether pure curiosity or part of your decision making, this whitepaper has been written for parents, by a parent, so that you may be better educated in knowing how best to provide a safe play environment for your children.
