Trampoline maintenance tips for longer life span & safer use

All Akrobat trampolines are made of durable high-quality materials and do not need extra special treatments but they need to be maintained with care.


CLEANING

Especially mats and frame pads should not be cleaned with any aggressive cleaning products. Trampoline surfaces are best cleaned with mild soapy water and thoroughly rinsed with water afterward.

SEASONAL CHECKING

Check your trampoline before each season thoroughly – particularly the frame, frame pad, springs, jumping mat. We advise regular check-ups during the season as well. On the contrary, damaged parts could be overlooked, which may result in severe accidents or injuries.

Your checklist should include the following points:

  • All parts are well attached.
  • All springs are well secured to the frame and the rings on the jumping mat.
  • The trampoline has no damages, such as rips, holes, sharp, twisted, or broken parts. If you notice any damage, change the parts immediately.

PROPER PROTECTION

For the best maintenance of your trampoline, also make sure no animals are allowed on the trampoline as they could damage both the frame pad and the jumping mat. The trampoline should be disassembled and withdrawn from use at once in case of any damage or missing parts until the defects are repaired or parts replaced. Extreme weather conditions can impact the trampoline materials, therefore follow these recommendations:

  • Remove the jumping mat during the winter season as the weight of the snow could damage the mat.
  • Protect the trampoline from direct heat, fire, sparks, and fireworks.
  • Protect your trampoline from heavy rain and snow as well.


The trampoline pit should not accumulate water (in which case drainage is necessary) and it should be possible to clean during maintenance.
