At Atlantic Trampolines we are serious about safety well as being serious about fun. As members of the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).
We fully support the advice the society gives on trampoline safety, which can be found in full by clicking Trampoline Safety.
Alternatively, if you have any safety concerns, please do feel free to call us on the TRAMPO-LINE 0800 032 5879. Our team are experts in trampolining and will be glad to advise you on how you can minimise risk and maximise fun for all the family.
We are proud supporters of the Change4Life campaign being run by the NHS. What is Change4Life?
These days, ’modern life’ can mean that we’re a lot less active. With so many opportunities to watch TV or play computer games, and with so much convenience and fast food available, we don’t move about as much, or eat as well as we used to.
Change4Life for your kids
9 out of 10 of our kids today could grow up with dangerous amounts of fat in their bodies. This can cause life-threatening diseases like cancer, type 2 diabetes and heart disease.
Change4Life for you
By the time we reach middle age, the majority of us could do with losing at least a bit of weight. Being overweight isn’t just about the way we look. It can lead to more aches and pains, problems sleeping and people report a loss of energy and confidence. It also increases our chances of getting heart disease, type 2 diabetes and some cancers. Have a look at the website to see how you can benefit.
July 5th - 11th is National Childhood Obesity Week, and in light of this we have produced an article on how trampolining can improve your child's health, have a look : Could trampolines help fix our kids' obesity problem?

How safe are trampolines
Can more than one person use it at the same time?
If you want to minimise risk then the answer is no. If the weight loading is not exceeded then it can be done, but it would be wrong of us to say this is advisable. Safest trampolining is with one person at a time and incorporating one of our safety enclosures. Collisions are one of the biggest causes of accidents on trampolines and be aware that it is usually the smallest person who gets hurt.
Do I really need a safety enclosure?
We would strongly recommend one. Using a safety enclosure will prevent the bouncer accidentally falling off the trampoline bed or jumping off when dismounting. Around a third of accidents occur when people fall or jump off a trampoline, so a safety enclosure should reduce the risk of accidents significantly.
Can my child use it safely on their own?Again it's up to you, but our advice is that supervision reduces the risk of accidents.
Is a trampoline suitable for all ages?Generally yes, but where you need to be especially careful is with children under six. They are best on the smaller trampolines which are designed for 3 years olds+.
Do you have any other safety advice?Stunts should not be allowed as they carry a risk of severe head or neck injury. If your children are getting adventurous, encourage them to join a local trampoline club. For a national list of clubs see www.nightflyers.co.uk
Does it matter if my trampoline has rips, holes or tears?Yes, any of these - or padding which has come off - can cause accidents. Your trampoline should be maintained in good condition at all times. If you need spare parts give us a call as we carry a huge range for all manner of trampolines. Our experts will simply ask you a few questions over the phone or email to find out exactly which type of parts you need.
My garden slopes, can I still use a trampoline on it?
Yes. If the slope is gentle you may not even need to level your trampoline. However, if you do find the bouncer tends to keep jumping towards the lowest end you can recess the highest legs into the ground by digging a thin trench where they touch the floor.
