What determines the quality of an EXIT trampoline?
EXIT Toys has classified its trampolines into the categories bronze, silver, gold and platinum to show the difference in quality. But what makes one trampoline good and another outstanding? EXIT Toys explains:
Super sturdy frame
Because a trampoline needs to be able to withstand the wildest jumps, EXIT Toys has made the trampolines sturdy enough to endure rough handling. The thicker the frame and legs of the trampoline are, the more securely the trampoline will stay in place. The round Elegant trampolines on legs really stand out when it comes to sturdiness: not only do they have the solid frame, but they also have unique L-shaped legs so that the trampoline can never tilt. It is also referred to as an Ultimate Stability Frame. But also, on the frame of the Supreme and PeakPro trampolines you can rely. Did you know that the durable frames have a guaranty of no less than 10 years?
The best bounce
A trampoline is of course meant for fun and jumping! The quality of the bounce depends mainly on the type of springs, the (wire) thickness and the length of the springs. All EXIT toys trampolines have double conical springs, these kinds of springs are thicker in the middle than on the outsides. This allows it to stretch out more evenly and always allows you to create a super great bounce.
The smoothest bounces are best made when the springs are long and thick. At EXIT Toys we have trampolines with different spring lengths and thicknesses: the trampolines from our bronze category have the shortest and least thick springs and the trampolines from the platinum category have the longest and thickest springs.
Please note: for the young, lightweight and less experienced users, the trampolines with short springs will give a better bounce. Long springs work best when the jumper is able to actually push off well. In the blog 'Which trampoline is suitable for my children?' you will discover the best trampoline for your child’s age!
The difference in the EXIT Toys trampoline categories is also reflected in the durability of the trampolines. The PVC-layer of the padding and the way in which the frame is finished off for example influence the lifespan of a trampoline. The thicker the protective PVC-top layer, the more durable the trampoline and therefore the higher the category in which it is placed. The padding of the Supreme and the PeakPro trampolines can, due to its high quality, even be left outside in freezing temperatures and is UV resistant. Therefore completely durable!
All frames and legs of our EXIT trampolines are galvanised which makes them scratch resistant and it protects them against weather conditions and rust. When the frame and legs are then also powder coated, the trampolines have an extra protection layer to make them even more durable.
Safety first: the padding
Is there a difference in safety between the four different trampoline categories? No worries there, whichever EXIT trampoline you may choose: they are all safe! All paddings from EXIT Toys contain a handy foot protection system, so that children will not get their feet caught in the springs.
Thick padding ensures that your landing will be soft even if the jump doesn’t turn out as you had hoped. Because you can jump higher on an EXIT trampoline in the gold and platinum category compared to a trampoline from another category, the padding is also thicker. The Elegant Premium, the Supreme and the PeakPro trampolines really stand out from the rest with their 30 and 40-millimeter-thick padding.
Safety first: the safety net
And last but not least: our safety nets! For trampolines in the silver and gold category we have the EXIT Economy safety net and the EXIT Deluxe safety net. The Deluxe safety net has an extra thick frame to ensure extreme sturdiness. In addition to that the safety net also has high quality XPE foam all around the poles and is pulled tight with a glass fibre ring at the top and bottom of the net. The PeakPro trampoline has the absolute strongest frame, that is protected with XPE foam too. This safety net also has two glass fibre rings to guarantee optimal sturdiness. The thickness of the poles, the kind of foam around the poles and the amount of rings in the net all contribute to the difference in quality.
There is also a difference in the types of closures of the safety nets: the safety nets of the trampolines in the bronze category have a striking zipper and the safety nets in the silver, gold and platinum category have an overlapping door. With such an overlapping entrance, children cannot forget to close the net. The platinum category (PeakPro) not only has an overlapping door, but also a jump meter on the safety net.
With different (bounce) quality trampolines divided up into four different categories there will always be one that is perfect for you. Have you not quite made up your mind yet? Bounce into action and use the choice help from EXIT Toys to find your perfect trampoline!
