Trampolines FAQ US

  • 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.

    Usage on a Regular trampoline:

    The cover is pulled over the round top frame of the trampoline (the weather cover can be installed with and without the protection padding on the trampoline). For extra firmness there a a couple of elastics with a hook attached to the protection cover of the trampoline. These elastics with hook can be pulled underneath the round top frame and be attached to the triangles (spring connection) of the jump mat

    Usage on an InGround trampoline:

    The cover is pulled over the round top frame of the trampoline (the weather cover can be installed with and without the protection padding on the trampoline). For extra firmness there a a couple of elastics with a hook attached to the protection cover of the trampoline, but in order to do so the pins of the frame net need to be loosened so the elastics with hooks on the weather cover can be pulled underneath the frame. These hooks of the cover can then be attached to the triangles (spring connection) of the jump mat.

    Usage on Flatground trampoline:

    The weather cover can only be installed if the protection cover is on the trampoline. The weather cover is pulled over the protection cover. For extra firmness the elastics with hooks of the weather cover can also be attached to the triangles (spring connection) of the jump mat.

  • 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.

  • 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

  • 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.

  • 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.
