Source: ASTM International

This safety specification covers the performance and safety requirements intended to reduce the potential hazards associated with the manufacture and assembly of components, maintenance, use, and labeling of consumer trampoline enclosures. This specification is applicable to trampoline enclosures to be sold as an accessory to or packaged with trampolines of a minimum bed size of 3300 in.2 (2.1 m2); a minimum height of 20 in. (510 mm); intended for the purpose of continuous, vertical jumping activities; and intended for consumer use.

This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.

1. Scope

1.1 This safety specification covers the components, assembly, use, labeling, and performance requirements of consumer trampoline enclosures (see Safety Specification F381).

1.2 This specification is applicable to trampoline enclosures to be sold as an accessory to or packaged with trampolines of (1) a minimum bed size of 3300 in.2 (2.1 m2), (2) a minimum height of 20 in. (510 mm), (3) intended for the purpose of continuous, vertical jumping activities, and (4) intended for consumer use.

1.3 This specification includes the following sections and selected subsections

1.4 This specification does not purport to address all of the hazards that may be associated with trampolines or trampoline enclosures, or both. The standard's existence alone will not necessarily prevent injuries. Like other physical activities, trampoline use involves the risk of injury, particularly if the equipment is used improperly. Similarly, the use of a trampoline enclosure alone will not necessarily prevent all injuries.

1.5 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

1.6 The following precautionary caveat pertains only to the test methods portion of this specification. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
