The exploding popularity of kids trampoline models means that there are more brands on the market than ever before. To the untrained eye, the materials they’re made from seem to be very similar, but nothing could be further from the truth.
It becomes even more confusing when every company claims that their products are made from the highest quality components. When shopping for the best trampoline for kids, you want to ensure that you really are buying a high quality, safe product.
But there is an easy solution: Shop Vuly trampolines!
The Vuly R&D Team is involved in every aspect of our product development – from design and material to manufacture. We don’t just claim that our products are the best, we prove it with extensive research and testing to get the best results for you.
See why Vuly Play offers the best kids trampolines and how long a quality trampoline should last for your family.
When purchasing a trampoline for kids it’s crucial to consider the quality of its materials.
At Vuly Play, our engineers, collaborating closely with our in-house design Vuly team, are always working hard to ensure that we create the best kids trampolines.
But what defines quality?
For a start, how does a 10 years warranty on your trampoline frame sound?
This is very important, because the frame is the key component that makes up a trampoline and essentially holds it together.
The steel used for a Vuly trampoline frame is twice galvanised on the inside and outside the tubes for extra protection from corrosion and rust.
It’s not just the high quality frame that stands out on a Vuly. We ensure every part of our kids trampolines – are made to last.
Our steel springs are chromate conversion coated to protect against corrosion, and both the hooks and springs themselves are larger than the competition, allowing for a better rebound.
Vuly engineers have also thoroughly tested spring tensile strength and our renowned dual-layer spring system generates the optimal bouncing experience for all weights and sizes.
Top-quality, Vuly jumping surfaces are made of thick and durable polypropylene, which is tough and heat resistant.
It's also light-weight, impact absorbing, stress cracking-resistant, and boasts a very high compressive strength.
These qualities are vital for the pressure exerted on a trampoline. Vuly adds to the athletic fun by printing games on our jumping surfaces (known as our HexVex™ Game Mat), providing your child with hours of additional enjoyment.
Our safety nets are composed of Terylene, a synthetic polyester fabric that is known for its lightweight yet sturdy qualities.
An extremely versatile and UV-resistant material, Terylene is commonly used in ropes and sails. With strong synthetic materials, you can be assured that you or your kids will remain securely within the confines of the enclosure.
Our fortifying reinforcement strip is located around the middle of the net for additional safety.
You've probably heard that kids trampolines cause a lot of injuries.
With Vuly trampolines, these ideas couldn't be further from the truth!
Vuly Play has addressed primary concerns about trampolines expressed to us by parents everywhere! We understand that there's nothing more important than the safety of their children.
Today, we talk about how we go further than the safety requirements outlined by Standards Australia, and address some common misconceptions that are promoted by other trampoline manufacturers.
Standards Australia is the country’s leading independent standards organisation, specialists in the development of internationally-aligned standards in Australia.
They are the body behind safety standard AS 4989:2015 Trampolines for domestic use.
This standard introduces trampoline requirements for enclosures, structural integrity, the need for UV-resistant materials and impact reduction systems.
All of our trampoline models pass these Australian safety standards.
Our trampoline enclosures prevent any contact with springs or frame, eliminating impact zones in the bouncing area.
We also provide loop padding connectors and a self-sealing door – just two small (but important) areas in which Vuly goes beyond what’s required for safety.
In short, you can be assured every single safety aspect is covered when choosing a Vuly kids trampoline.
Read more on how we exceed safety standards below:
Rust won't form in places that you can't see and degrade the integrity of the frame, unlike other competing trampoline models.
The 'no-contact' springs on our Lift trampoline models also feature special ‘Chromium Conversion Coating’, which provides an extra rust-free guarantee.
Vuly’s frames offer an incredible 10 year warranty, ensuring a guaranteed sturdy and safe jumping platform not found in competitors.
Made from ultra-soft silk terylene or longer-lasting polyethylene material, Vuly safety enclosures feel gentle on the skin and are woven to consist of the smallest holes possible.
Unlike many competitors, Vuly trampoline nets are attached directly to the mat to prevent any contact with springs or frames, and there's nowhere for little digits to get caught.
The net is also the perfect level of tightness; you'll never fall off the side! All of our nets will gently guide you back onto the mat every time.
Vuly trampolines provide fantastic vertical bounce, which is low-impact and gentle on joints young and old.
Some activities – like running, tennis or basketball – can be taxing on knees and ankles, and other competitor trampoline models have a diagonal bounce, which can also be harmful for joints.
However, gentle bouncing on a Vuly trampoline mat is a great way to raise your heart rate without causing damage to your body.
Many of our competitors claim to not sell tents and shade cover roofs for their trampolines – or advise customers to steer clear of them — because they “conflict with the height restrictions in the safety standards”.
This is simply not true.
In fact, the Australian Standard makes specific provisions for these products. It recognises that “[…] accessories specifically designed to cover the trampoline, such as tents or sunshades, may be provided with the trampoline or sold separately”.
When it comes to the question of how long do trampolines last, there are several factors that need to be considered.
Of course, the most crucial factor will always be the overall quality of the trampoline and its materials.
While trampolines are available from most large stores and online – and at very competitive prices – you should always look for the highest quality that you can afford.
Take a good look at the frame, jump mat, safety padding and safety net on the kids trampolines that you shortlist.
Here are some of the important aspects that also impact how long a trampoline lasts for.
A weaker frame is one of the main issues that causes trampolines to break down over time.
Some trampoline manufacturers compromise on the galvanised thickness when fabricating the tubes that make up their trampolines. Others use materials that are not correctly treated for exposure to the weather.
Also, think carefully about the age and weight of the potential trampoline users, and make sure the trampoline frame you're looking to buy can support those users.
Unlike most other brands, Vuly trampolines take up to 150 kg of weight. Our frames are also twice galvanised, so they won’t bend or break.
All Vuly kids trampolines use reinforced square joiners, meaning that the frames are a lot sturdier than the round joiners used in other trampolines.
The inherent strength of a Vuly frame also comes from its double-ring foundation – ensuring its made for the utmost stability.
A trampoline jump mat takes a lot of bouncing over its life.
Not only must it be made of a super-durable material, it's also essential to frequently check that the mat is free from tiny holes and tears, as this will allow you to spot any damage before there is a problem.
Trampoline jump mats with small tears will need to be replaced as soon as possible, so that the strength of other trampoline parts – and the jumper's safety – are uncompromised.
Jump mats made from polypropylene are stronger than others – especially if they're also UV-treated.
Tested for 40,000 bounces, Vuly trampoline mats are strong and robust, suiting Australian weather conditions.
Not only that, even when you're outside of the warranty period, you can still get half-price jump mat for life – along with any other core component of your trampoline.
Vuly jump mats even have printed icons on them, for your family to create fun trampoline games and increase the enjoyment that you get from the trampoline.
Watch the kids bounce and use their imagination to make up contests using the images on the mat!
If you buy a low-cost trampoline with springs, you'll need to check the condition of those springs – especially if the safety padding is not to the frame secured over the springs.
Kids trampolines may also break if their springs become overworked and worn-out. Some cheaper trampolines use shorter springs, with smaller diameters, than others.
Not only will longer and ‘fatter’ springs outperform the smaller ones for quality and smoothness of bounce, they'll also last a lot longer and won't break as easily.
Take note of the material used to make the coils and if they seem tightly wound and strong.
Vuly springs use thicker hooks, tapered ends and a chromate conversion coating that safeguards against snapping. Because they attach to the topside and underside of Lift or Lift Pro frame tubes, Vuly springs activate based on user weight to push bouncers higher.
Not only that, Thunder and Thunder Pro don't even have coil springs to worry about!
The amazing Leaf Spring design from Vuly uses a single piece of shaped steel, with no rivets, to offer a bounce that far surpasses Australian Standards for safety.
At Vuly Play, we’re often asked what exactly makes a trampoline heavy duty.
Well, not all trampolines for kids are created equal.
Some are designed with sturdier frames, to hold higher weights and to endure rough weather – others are not.
We define a heavy duty trampoline as one that lasts, no matter the conditions or how much a family bounces on it.
However, unlike what the word ‘heavy duty’ normally implies, these must-have qualities don’t make these trampolines eyesores, at least with Vuly trampolines.
Heavy duty trampolines can take more weight. Through a combination of a well-designed structure and solidly made components, they are able to rebound much heavier weights than normal trampolines.
This is ideal for larger parents or older kids, and means that the legs are less likely to buckle or the mat stretch.
Vuly kids trampolines boast 150 kg weight ratings – among the highest of any trampoline on the market.
Unofficially, Thunder Pro can even hold the weight of an entire car!
Its closest no-spring competitor can only manage a 80 or 100 kg rating, while most coil spring trampolines can only manage 130 kg.
We’ve all seen at least one in a friend’s backyard: the sad, buckled-leg trampoline sitting in disuse.
Some trampoline frames simply aren’t designed well enough to prevent collapsing and don’t get the steel treatment that an outdoor product needs.
A robust frame is essential for a heavy duty trampoline.
Luckily, all Vuly kids trampolines use click-together frames that are completely secure and sturdy for the long term.
Our Lift trampoline and its variants, as well as our Thunder model, use double-ringed frames for extra strength.
Even better, all our trampoline for kids are guaranteed to last for years – 10 years, in fact!
A protective safety enclosure also withstands weather is just as important as a hardy frame.
Many cheap safety nets and net poles come apart of collapse in heavy wind, and too many frames aren’t rust resistant – that’s not heavy duty!
After all, what good is outdoor play equipment, if it can’t handle being outdoors?
Vuly frames are double galvanised on both the inside of the tubes and on the outside to prevent rust.
Thunder Pro and Lift Pro are even powder-coated for extra protection. Their rigid net poles have been tested in the wild Australian weather.
In fact, the nets on Thunder and Lift use the most UV-resistant material on the market.
Have you seen any other trampolines that stack up and could claim to be ‘heavy duty’? We think that our trampolines are the hardiest out there!
