So What Makes A Square Trampoline So Special?
by: James Druman

Trampolines have gained a lot of popularity over the past decades, and with that popularity, along with advances in design technology, we've seen a lot of interesting new models hit the market. One divergence from traditional design that attracts a lot of attention is the square trampoline. But a lot of consumers want to know is if there is really anything to this shape or if it has limitations compared to the traditional round model.

First of all, is there some marketing involved? Sure, there is—because people like to have something unique as compared to everyone else out there, and even with the rise in popularity of square and rectangular designs, they still stand out and add to the aesthetics of the whole thing. And there's nothing wrong with purchasing something because you like the way it looks. But it doesn't stop there.

In actuality, the square models have more bounce than their round-shaped relatives, so it is the round ones that have limitations in design. The round trampoline surface has less give to it and does not propel a user quite as far into the air—there's just not as much "spring," you could say. But a square trampoline surface provides the opportunity to use a special pattern when arranging the springs, and this is what creates that greater bouncing capacity.

In fact, this unique spring arrangement actually creates a more evenly distributed bouncy area as well. On round trampolines, this is not the case, and users will often find that the most surface play is found in the very center. As they bounce around, they find they are constantly getting weaker jumps and more jarring landings at the edges, and this can even expose a danger of twisting an ankle if minor motor adjustments are off.

Finally, the shape of the trampoline you choose can have a big impact on the amount of room it takes up in your yard. A rectangular or square trampoline is more conserving of space with its flat edges and squared off corners, making it easier to make room and leave enough perimeter clearance when planning a space for it in the yard.

It also becomes easier to set it out of the way if you need to use the yard for another purpose. For the larger 13X13ft models, this becomes increasingly important.

So if you haven't considered shape already, you might want to sit down and think it through a little more before making your purchase—as you can see, it can have a direct influence on the enjoyment you and your family get out of the trampoline. Take a look at the many different design choices on the market and you will likely see that the smallest changes in style can make all the difference in safety and fun.
