Purpose of Trampoline Weather Cover – Your Structure Doesn't Need a Tan

You how you're always telling your kids not to go out into the sun for very long without applying sunscreen to their skin? You do this because you know how harmful the ultraviolet rays of the sun can be when they're allowed to beat down on your skin for hours at a time. Would you believe it if you heard that the sun's ultraviolet rays can have a similar affect on inanimate objects that you might store in your yard? If you've recently purchased a full size trampoline for your backyard, it's important to purchase a trampoline cover that will protect your investment from the damaging rays of the sun day after day.
Although it's often dismissed as a mere children's toy, it's important to treat a trampoline with respect, just like you would any other investment. High quality trampolines aren't cheap, and the last thing you want to have to do is replace your new piece of equipment after only a few months of use, simply because you left it out in the sun, and it became damaged. In addition to protecting the money you invested, proper maintenance of trampoline parts is important because it helps to keep you and your family safe while you're playing on the structure.
If you're thinking about shopping for a trampoline cover, or any other trampoline accessory for that matter, it's important to take accurate measurements of your structure first. There have been many people who tried to "eyeball" the dimensions of their square, rectangular, or circular trampoline, only to find out that they missed the mark by a few inches. Inaccurate measurements will only result in you being frustrated and possibly damaging the new cover while you're trying to force it on to the structure.
Something else you need to look for in a trampoline cover is quality weatherproofing. Stay away from those that say "water and UV resistant" as this means they're not proven to keep the elements away from the trampoline mat and pads for very long, if at all. What you want to purchase is a trampoline cover that has been deemed weather proof, and that indicates that it will block UV rays from reaching the trampoline mat. This will keep your mat from becoming faded in the sun, and will decrease the chances of the fabric developing holes, tears, or frayed edges for many years to come.
