How do you dig in a trampoline?
Can I dig in a trampoline myself? How deep should I dig the hole? With the EXIT Toys tips, digging in your trampoline will be a piece of cake.
Are you planning to buy an inground trampoline, but don't know which one yet? At EXIT Toys, you have the choice between a groundlevel and an inground trampoline. Both trampolines are dug in, but they differ enormously on a number of points. EXIT Toys takes you through the differences:
The biggest difference between an inground and a groundlevel trampoline is the way it is dug in. The frame of a ground-level trampoline is fully dug in, so that the trampoline lies at the same level as lawn. An inground trampoline is placed right over the pit. This means that the legs of the trampoline simply rest on the grass. Because an inground trampoline stands higher on the ground, you don't have to dig the pit as deep. In our manuals, you will always find a special pit drawing which helps you dig the right pit.
Because the inground trampoline stands on the grass with its short legs, these trampolines of EXIT Toys have an entrance of approximately 20 centimetres. A groundlevel trampoline lies even with the grass surface and has no steps. This makes the ground level trampoline extra easy to enter by children, but also, for example, by a lawnmower or a go-kart: so be careful!
A third difference lies in the ventilation. While jumping on an inground trampoline, it’s important that the air can escape from the pit. The inground trampolines of EXIT Toys have holes on the side of the protective pads for this purpose. Because the protective pads on a groundlevel trampoline are dug in, ground level trampolines have a special venting system in the jumping mat. Thanks to both venting systems, you can enjoy the benefits of a tightly sprung trampoline and a great bounce: win-win!
Because the EXIT Toys inground trampolines have a small entrance of 20 centimetres, they are standardly provided with a safety net. You can also choose a safety net for the groundlevel trampolines. Do you think this is too conspicuous in the garden? Then go for a groundlevel trampoline with safety pads. The unique Freezone safety tiles from EXIT Toys offer an optimal protection, without disturbing the peaceful look of your garden. Whether you choose an inground trampoline or a groundlevel trampoline: safety is guaranteed!
Now that you know more about the differences between a groundlevel and an inground trampoline, you're still faced with the choice of what shape of trampoline you would like. Will it be round or rectangular? Read the advantages of both shapes in this blog. Already decided? Check out the range of inground and groundlevel trampolines of EXIT Toys. Have fun jumping!
