With 30+ years experience in trampoline production we’ve learnt what makes a trampoline fun, safe & long lasting. A lot of the trampolines you’ll see for sale on Amazon have been made in our factory under OEM. The Zero Gravity brand is our premium offering and utilises the latest technology for a great value, fun, safe & long lasting trampoline. Plenty of models for sale tick a lot of the boxes but can you tell if they are built to a budget with corners cut? Just a few tips on what to look for.
ENCLOSURE- There are two types of enclosure either an inner (attached to the edge of the jumping mat) or an outer (fits on the outside of the frame). Both are safe but if you are looking at a model with an outer enclosure ensure that the padding is as thick as possible over the frame as your childs head can easily come into contact with this whereas with an inner enclosure this cannot happen.
PADDING- The thicker the better. Find out what the outside of the padding is made from, PVC is preferable as it doesn’t rot under UV light unlike PE which can crumble after a year or so.
LEGS- Rectangular trampolines have a habbit of walking when in use. Take a look at the design of the legs on the Ultima 5 and you notice that the contact points to the ground is significantly increased reducing the amount of movement that can crack the welds on the frame.
SHAPE – You’ll see from the images above that the Ultima 5 is in fact barrel shaped with an elongated curved outer frame. Why? Well its all down to strength, a curved frame is significantly stronger than a straight frame which increases resiliancy of the components and reduces stress on the joints.
For over 10 years Zero Gravity has been synonymous with high specification, quality trampolines. During this time they have shied away from the cheaper end of the market as it was impossible to produce a safe high performance rectangular trampoline at such a low price. For 2 years they have worked on producing a design that gives the bounce performance of a rectangular trampoline whithout compromising safety and yet at an affordable price. Introducing the Zero Gravity Ultima 5 trampoline…
Why not buy a cheaper round trampoline? Its simple if you want to go to great heights then a rectangular trampoline really does give a much better bounce. This trampoline is not for the very young but for the experienced trampolinist who has outgrown their round trampoline and wants to extend their trampolining skills.
All Zero Gravity Ultima 5 trampolines feature a state of the art safety enclosure. A netting sited directly on the edge of the jumping surface supported by arced uprights improve safety in the event of a fall, whilst a wired top ring retains the shape and structure of the netting.
The safety padding’s top surface is made from PVC rather than cheaper, inferior PE giving a quality look and feel that unlike PE will not disintegrate under UV light. SAFETY IS OF THE UTTERMOST IMPORTANCE so inside the padding you’ll find 20mm thick EPE foam protecting your child against the steel frame.
