What Trampolines Are Best for Windy Coastal Ireland?

We deliver trampolines all over Ireland, and we quite often speak to customers who live near the coast who want to know which trampoline will be most suitable for their location.

As a general rule, inground or flatground trampolines will be most suitable for windy coastal areas in Ireland, as they have a much lower centre of gravity, and the trampoline frame will be either embedded into the ground or staked into the ground with pegs as a matter of course.

Trampolines on The Wild Atlantic Way

At Trampolines Ireland, we're pleased to specialise in robust, premium quality trampolines where the risk of your trampoline being blown away is much lower than with a lighter, cheaper trampoline.

However, when the right storm comes in it pays to be prepared.

We Recommend Inground & Flatground Trampolines for Coastal Areas for the Following Reasons 

1. Lower Centre of Gravity

As you may know the west coast of Ireland is named the Wild Atlantic Way for good reason, and the winds can be pretty mighty.

An inground or flatground trampoline will be much more difficult for the wind to blow over because - 

(a) either the feet on an inground trampoline will be pegged to the ground or with a flatground trampoline, the whole trampoline frame will be sunk into the ground,

(b) with the weight much lower to the ground there is a lower probability of the wind getting under the trampoline and lifting it

2. Lower Profile in Your Garden

As these trampolines will have a lower height profile in your garden there is a reduced chance of catching the wind.

3. Designed to Be More Wind-Resistant

A combination of the embedded frame on flatground trampolines and the extended skirt on inground trampolines means that there is a reduced opportunity for the wind to get beneath the trampoline.

What to Do If You Have An Above Ground Trampoline In A Coastal Area?

1. Make sure that the trampoline is adequately anchored. 

You can anchor your trampoline using -

trampoline anchors,

sandbags,

metal stakes,

heavy timber and a host of other heavy objects designed to keep your trampoline securely in place during windy weather.

2. Drop the trampoline safety net

The safety net is one of the components that is most frequently damaged during stormy or windy weather, and so a quick and easy step that you can take to protect your trampoline is to drop the safety net.
