Trampolines are great to have around the house. Not only do they provide for children’s recreational fun time, they’re also used for fitness purposes such as gymnastics or aerobics workouts. Trampoline activities can be a lot of fun for the family and a good form of exercise if accompanied by adequate levels of safety measures and accessories. There are several types of trampoline accessories available on the market, based on size, the type of safety provided, and other uses such as protection from elements etc.
Enclosures: A trampoline enclosure, also known as bounce arena, is the most popular safety device used today. It is specifically designed to prevent falling when jumping on a trampoline. Enclosures for trampolines should always be used when the trampoline is placed near objects such as trees, fences or patios. There are two main types of trampoline enclosures – those constructed with the netting on the inner side of the trampoline padding and those having the netting on the outer side.
Trampoline Covers: Trampoline covers help extend the life of the trampoline and protect the padded edge by keeping leaves, bird droppings and other debris off the surface of the trampoline. There’s a wide variety of covers for trampolines such as U.V. resistant covers that have elasticated edge made from weatherproof rubberized vinyl, those that come with draw string edges and leg ties etc. Most trampoline covers also use central eyelets to drain rain water.
Ladders: Trampoline ladders are intended to assist smaller kids who want to get on to the trampoline. Most products are weather-proof and some ladders are made entirely of plastic while some of them may come with metal tube steps. Adult supervision is a must when trampoline ladders are being used.
Trampoline Anchor Kits: Trampoline Anchor Kits and tie-down kits hold the trampoline securely on the ground during high winds and storms. They are most ideal for areas frequently exposed to these elements. Anchor kits protect the trampoline from damage and being blown away. Most kits are equipped with heavy duty straps, buckles and elastic; and come with ties that are screwed onto the ground. The strapping connects to the tie and loops over the top rail of the trampoline which prevents the frame from detaching from the legs.
Trampoline Bounce Boards: Another recent addition, bounce boards are intended for training skateboarders, kite surfers, snowboarding, water surfing and skiing and those who want to practice “new moves” on their trampolines. They come with adjustable foot straps hook and loop closure.
