Trampolines FAQ IE
- What could be a possible cause of stains or discolouration on the padding?
UV radiation environmental factors: The protective edges have been developed to resist UV radiation from the sun, but over the years UV radiation will contribute to discolouration of the protective edge. In comparison: when you apply suncream you can lie in the sun for longer without getting sunburnt, but after a while you will still burn, even after using suncream.You can read more detailed information here.
- Can a Weather Cover also be installed on a BERG InGround or BERG Flatground trampoline?
A weather cover can be used to keep the trampoline free from leaves, twigs, dirt etc. In all situations BERG recommends to use the cover in situations where the trampoline is not used for a shorter period of time. When the trampoline is out of use for a longer period (e.g. the winter time) we recommend to take the protection cover from the trampoline, to dry is thouroughly and to store it in a dry place. The weather cover has holes for drainage thus preventing a large amount of water to stay on the trampoline. Through the holes the water can be eliminated gradually through the jump mat. The weather cover is not directly intended to keep the trampoline dry.

- What can I do to prevent stains on the protective edge?
The trampoline is outside in all kinds of weather and has a lot to endure. Naturally, it is unavoidable that traces of use and weather effects can be seen on the product over time, but with our advice you can keep the protective edge clean and fresh for much longer.You can read more detailed information here.
- How do I dig my BERG Trampoline into the ground?
To make digging your BERG Trampoline into the ground as easy as possible, a step by step explanation can be found on this page. In addition, handy instruction videos have been made to make the installation even clearer and easier!
- Does a safety net fit on every BERG Trampoline?
BERG has a matching safety net for all trampolines, with the exception of the BERG FlatGround trampolines.
- Can a BERG trampoline be entrenched in the ground?
Yes, most of the BERG Trampolines have an InGround variant. These InGround trampolines are specially designed low trampolines, which are placed in a hole in the ground. If you need help, you can refer to this page.
- Does a BERG Cover also fit a trampoline with a safety net?
Yes, that is possible. There is a clearance of three centimetres between the poles of the safety net and the trampoline frame, so there is sufficient room for a BERG Cover.
- Does a SafetyNet fit on every trampoline?
A Safety Net does not fit on an InGround trampoline. These trampolines are designed to be installed in the ground, so a safety net is not really necessary. A super safe trampoline is the BERG Elite+ InGround (T-series) trampoline with the Safety Net T series. This is the only InGround trampoline with a safety net. For the high round trampolines, we have the following options: BERG Favorit - BERG Safety Net BERG Favorit, BERG Champion, BERG Jumping Styles - BERG Safety Net Deluxe BERG Elite+ (T-series), BERG Elite+ InGround (T-series) and BERG InGround Jumping Styles - BERG Safety Net T series
- What is the difference between a round and a rectangular trampoline?
A round trampoline has an optimum “bounce point” in the centre of the trampoline, which is where you can make the highest and the best jumps. When jumping you are slightly pushed back to this centre point, which means you can make the best jumps all over again. A rectangular trampoline has an optimum “bounce line”, which means that the line along the middle of the trampoline is the best place to jump. When jumping you are pushed back to this line instead of the centre point. In this way, very efficient use is made of the ideal jumping space.
- Can you put a cover over a trampoline with a safety net?
Yes. The safety net poles are attached to the frame leaving a three-centimetre space. This space is sufficient for a protective cover.
- Why is a BERG Trampoline the best choice?
Many trampolines are offered in various shapes and sizes around the world, but BERG is the best choice because you are not just choosing BERG, you are also choosing quality, safety and loads of fun!
- What is the difference between a round and a rectangular trampoline?
A round trampoline has an optimal ‘bounce point’. The middle of the trampoline provides the best bounce and during each bounce you are pushed back to this centre point. A rectangular trampoline has an optimal ‘bounce line’. The whole middle line over the length of the trampoline offers a good bounce, constantly pushing you back to this middle line instead of the middle point. This enables you to make very efficient use of the bounce surface. Our rectangular trampolines also have a stronger frame than our round trampolines. With a rectangular trampoline, the forces which load the frame are not equally distributed, requiring a stronger frame to absorb peak forces.

- What is the best way to maintain my BERG Trampoline?
It is important to regularly maintain a BERG Trampoline to ensure a long service life. Regular checks should be carried out on the springs, the jumping mat and the frame.
