Some common reasons to measure a trampoline are:
In addition to the following reasons, some may also consider purchasing a bigger trampoline model compared to their existing one. In that case, it may be intriguing to know whether the new trampoline would fit in the yard comfortably.
In general, trampoline manufacturers provide detailed information about their trampolines, such as the height, width, and depth of the trampoline fully assembled as well as the detailed measurements of springs, each frame part, and enclosure poles. Therefore, taking measurements shouldn’t be necessary. However, if you’ve managed to throw away the packaging and instructions, it may be handy to know how to measure a trampoline correctly.
Note that can also contact our customer service to get the correct spare parts and accessories without having to measure your trampoline if you have an ACON.
You need at least two people in order to get accurate measurement of each side. Use a tape measure and make sure to have something to write the measurements, like paper and pen or a memo app on your phone.
When measuring a round trampoline, you’re looking at measuring the diameter of it. Here's how to do it:
Note! The easiest way to measure the mat is when it is attached to the springs and frame. If the mat is detached, make sure to spread it out to the ground fully before taking any measurements.
When measuring rectangular trampolines, you need to measure both sides Measuring rectangular trampolines is relatively simple:
And that’s it! But what should you do if you have an oddly shaped trampoline? Let’s find out next.
Trampolines tend to be round or rectangular, but hexagonal or oval trampolines may also be found. A trampoline with an odd shape can be assessed as one with a rectangular or round shape. First, measure the trampoline's longest side from its furthest point to its opposite side. Next, measure the other sides similarly. By doing so, you can accurately assess an oddly shaped trampoline.
Measure the height of the trampoline like this:
The guide should clear up most cases. There are times, however, when you need to measure the trampoline's height along with the net. For that, we suggest you measure the trampoline height first (ground to top) and then from the top of the trampoline to the top of the enclosure pole. Add the measurements together to get the overall height.
Measuring trampoline springs should be done when they are in their natural state. In other words, do not measure the springs when they are stretched out as this will give inaccurate measurements. Measure it from end to end, including the hook part on each end of the spring and be careful as springs can pinch skin if not held properly. Do not let a small child measure or handle springs.
How do I measure the size of my trampoline?
It is easy to measure the trampoline. Get a measurement tape and measure it with the tape going through the center point. This will give you the trampoline diameter. Rectangular trampolines must be measured on the short and long sides.
How do I make sure I have enough space for my trampoline?
Prior to purchasing the trampoline, measure the space where it will be placed. As a safety precaution, Acon suggests leaving a 3ft / 1m clearance around the trampoline. For instance, if you are looking for buying a 14ft trampoline, add 6ft to the diameter when measuring the empty space needed for the trampoline.
What’s the most popular trampoline size?
In general, the most popular trampoline sizes are 12ft and 14ft trampolines. At ACON, however, big trampoline models such as the flagship ACON Air 16 Sport HD trampoline with net tend to be the most sold options over small and medium models.
