The frame and springs are two important components of a trampoline. The trampoline frame must be made of a fully galvanized thick steel tubes with rust resistant coating. Only then it can provide good performance and long lasting use.
The springs must be tightly coiled and longer enough to provide better bounces. The springs should have rust resistance to stay rust-free and last longer.
Jump Mat and Spring Pad

The safety pad (also known as spring pad/cover) is made of PVC with foam padding inside. It hides all the springs and frames to prevent the users (especially kids) from hitting or falling on the springs/frame.
Ladder and Anchors
A backyard trampoline is incomplete if it does not have a ladder and anchors. Some manufacturers provide a ladder and wind stakes with the trampoline. If it is not included then you should buy them separately to make your trampoline ready to use in your backyard.
The ladder allows you and your kids to easily climb on trampoline surface. The trampolines anchors (wind stakes) protect the trampoline during strong winds and storms. The anchors prevent the trampoline from flying away.
