Brief Description: This range isnít just for kids, itís for the whole family! Parents, teenagers and children alike can enjoy the Big Air Universal experience and enjoy it, you will. Suitable for large families, small families, young children and old, you really canít go wrong choosing a Big Air Universal as itís perfect for everyone. (The manufacturers state that the trampoline is not suitable for solo use by children under 6 years of age, however younger children can use these trampolines at your discretion and with appropriate adult supervision).
Frame: All Big Air trampolines are constructed with 1.8mm HOT galvanised steel top frame. The HOT galvanisation process ensures that the trampoline frame sections are galvanised inside and out, the better for garden and outdoor use (unlike most other more cheap galvanised frames that are only galvanised on the exterior of the frame).
Springs: 48 Galvanised and Zinc plated 140mm Max Bounce springs. This is the optimum number of springs required to give the maximum bounce for the average user weight. Please see the brand statement below for important information on spring quantities versus max bounce.
Bounce Mat: All Big Air Trampoline jump mats are made in the USA and manufactured from Grade A Permatron. Permatron is a unique material that can be left outside in a garden all year round and gives an excellent cushioned bounce. We have experimented with more cheap Permatron mats manufactured from outside of the USA and found the quality to be considerably poorer. The V rings used to attach the jump mat to the frame are secured with an eight row stitch for extreme durability.
Safety Padding: Big Air Trampolines have been designed with both quality and safety in mind. All Big Air Trampoline safety padding uses a special shock absorbing closed cell polyethylene to provide protection from the trampoline frame and springs. There is an extra thick layer of padding around the edge to provide added protection from the hard steel frame of the trampoline.
Safety Enclosure: The Big Air Trampoline comes with a free standing safety net that secures to the leg of the trampoline with specially adapted galvanised steel clamps. The safety net is manufactured from 16 gauge HOT galvanised steel (better for garden and outdoor use). We have found that although more expensive to manufacture this design of safety net is far sturdier than other more cheap safety nets which attach to the top of the trampoline legs. This safety net frame is free standing and effectively doubles the number of legs that the trampoline has in contact with the ground, thus significantly increasing the structural integrity of both the trampoline and the safety enclosure. The mesh of the safety net is made from super strong and flexible Terylene thread and the intelligent design uses a free standing net to minimalise the risk of accidents involving the upright posts.
Quality Standard: GS/TUV certification comes as standard on all Big Air Trampolines.
Dimensions: 8ft Diameter, 20 Inch Height.
Max User Weight: Big Air trampolines are the industry heavyweights with a maximum user weight of 23 Stone, 150KG. We do not recommend use of trampolines for multiple users as such no multiple user weight is given.
Construction: Simple construction is required using the instruction manual for guidance. All tools and fixings required are included with the trampoline package.
Big Air Brand Statement
Here at Irish Sports Direct we are experienced sellers of trampolines with extensive market knowledge. We are proud to present our range of Big Air trampolines. This is the result of 12 months design and consultation with our manufacturing partners, our goal was to produce the ultimate performance and greatly improved durability from standard sized 8, 10, 12 and 14ft trampolines. Each different sized trampoline has been constructed with the optimum number of springs resulting in the maximum bounce for the average weight user. This configuration has been achieved with extensive research during the last 12 months. All our trampoline frames have been made with a 1.8mm top frame giving extra durability for users up to 23 stone in weight. All tubular steel frames have been through a unique HOT galvanisation process, whereby the tubes are galvanised inside and out thus giving a much stronger and longer lasting frame for garden and outdoor use.
Some Advice From The Experts
We recommend buyers avoid more cheap budget trampolines which tend to use 1.5mm 16 gauge steel for the top frame. With our previous experience in the trampoline industry we have found that this is the most important factor when considering the longevity of the trampoline. To put it simply, a thinner more cheap top frame is far more likely to rust (especially if used in the garden and outdoors) from the inside which could lead to a break under stress.
Buyers should be very careful not to purchase based solely on the number of springs. Our testing has showed that when increasing the spring numbers beyond current levels the performance of the trampoline suffers drastically unless the user is a real heavyweight. It would cost us virtually nothing to add more springs to our trampolines but we have refrained from doing so believing it to be highly unethical.
When choosing your trampoline we urge you to compare the spec of the Big Air trampolines with that of the competition. We are extremely confident that Big Air trampolines will not be beaten on price or performance. You are buying your trampoline direct from the Importer which allows us to provide unbeatable value top specification trampolines at a fraction of the price offered by other retailers.
