  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS
  • A trampoline system 1 according to the invention is shown in FIG. 2. The trampoline system 1 comprises a flexible rebounding mat 2 and a frame 3, the mat 2 and frame 3 held in position and in tension on the frame relative to one another by a plurality of support rods 4. The frame 3 of the embodiment shown is generally rectangular in plan view, but may alternatively be for example, square, oval or circular. The mat 2 has the same shape as the frame 3, but larger, so that when the mat is placed above the frame, each edge of the mat overlaps the frame. The mat is formed from a resiliently flexibly material such as woven polypropylene.
  • Each the support rod 4 has a lower end 7 which is connected to the frame 3, and an upper end 8 which is connected to the mat 2. Apertures are formed in the frame 3, along the outer side and slightly towards the upper part of the frame 5, and the lower ends 7 of the support rods 4 insert into these apertures. The sides of the apertures can be reinforced with support inserts or similar if required. In the preferred embodiment the lower ends 7 of the support rods are connected to the frame such that the rods angle outwards, with their longitudinal axes aligned substantially perpendicular to the longitudinal axis of the frame. Each support rod 4 has a free length 9, which is that length of the rod between the upper end 8 (connected to the mat) and the lower end 7 (connected to the frame). The free length 9 bows, bends or extends outwards from the frame 3) along the entirety of the free length to form an outwardly bowed arc. In the preferred form, the rods 4 form a row along each side of the frame 2 and mat 3. The corners of the trampoline do not have support rods associated with them. In the most preferred form, the corners of the rectangular mat 3 are ‘cut off’ diagonally between the end one of each row of support rods, to avoid an unsupported or loose portion of material at the corner.
  • The support rods 4 are, in the preferred embodiment, formed from fibreglass or a similar material. The support rods 4 may be formed as flat bars—that is, elongate members with a square or more preferably rectangular cross-section, or of any other suitable cross-sectional shape. In the preferred embodiment the support rods are flat or straight when no external force is applied—that is, they are not pre-formed with a curve. The sides of the rods (that is, the narrower ones of the longer faces aligned along or with the longitudinal axis of the rod) are, in the preferred embodiment, fully radiused.
  • The enlarged upper end 8 of each support rod 4 is formed as an edge connector 114 to connect the upper end 8 to the edge of the mat 2 in co-operation with an edge fitting fitted to the edge of the mat. In the preferred form the mat is fitted with mat edge fittings comprising female connectors which receive the male edge connectors 114. Preferably the female connectors are ganged in single unitary components one connected to each edge of the mat. This is shown in FIGS. 6 to 8. A mat edge fitting or attachment component—attachment component 20 c—is shown connected to the edge of the mat 2. Along each mat edge an attachment component 20 c is held in position on the underside of the mat edge by a series of webbing straps 25 c that are looped over the attachment component 20 c and have ends stitched or sewn to the upper and lower surfaces of the mat, the webbing straps aligned substantially perpendicular to the edge of the mat 2 and passing across and over the attachment component 20 c.
  • FIGS. 7 and 8 show how the rod edge connectors 114 couple to the attachment components 20 c. The attachment component 20 c has a hollow interior (it may be formed by extrusion for example) and the front of the attachment component 20 c comprises as series of spaced outwardly facing openings one indicated in FIG. 6 at 21 c. In assembly of the trampoline, a catch rod 44 is passed in through one of the open ends of the attachment component 20 c. The rod 44 is the same length as the attachment component 20 c. The catch rod 44 rests at the lower front internal corner of the attachment component 20 c; after the lower ends of the support rods 4 have been attached to the frame as outlined above, to connect each support rods 4 to the attachment component 20 c, the upper end 8 of the support rod 4 is bent backwards/inwards towards the mat 2 and the connected attachment component 20 c. The angled top surface or face of the top of the rod engages and pushes the catch rod 44 upwards within the interior of attachment component 20 c until the catch rod 44 passes over the top of the rod end and drops down behind it to the position shown in FIG. 8, engaging in notch 45.
  • Referring to FIGS. 3 to 5 and 9 to 11, in accordance with the invention the enlarged upper ends of the support rods 4 comprising the edge connectors 114 comprise an integral skirt 180 which surrounds and encases at least an upper end length of the support rod below the enlarged end. Preferably the integral skirt surrounds and encloses a major part of the length of the support rod. As shown in the embodiment of FIGS. 3 to 5 the integral skirt 180 may surround and enclose substantially all of the length of the support rod, or as shown in FIGS. 9 to 11 the integral skirt 180 may surround and enclose a major part of the length of the support rod 4, and in particular that length between the top of the rod and the frame of the trampoline when installed. In preferred embodiments an enlargement or surround 181 is also integrally formed with the skirt 180 towards a lower end of the support rod at or adjacent a connection or entry of the support rod to or into the frame (in the assembled trampoline). Preferably the enlarged upper end 114 of the support rod and the skirt 180 and optionally the enlargement or surround 181 towards a lower end of the support rod and are formed of a plastics material and by injection moulding around and to or onto the support rod or at least an upper end thereof.
  • FIGS. 3 to 5 and 9 to 11 show a support rod 4 of the trampoline embodiment of in particular FIG. 2. Alternatively, in a soft edged trampoline as shown in FIG. 1 and as described in U.S. Pat. No. 6,319,174 referred to previously, and international patent application publication WO03/043704, comprising resilient spring rods angled or spiralled around a lower frame and extending outwards and upwards from the frame to connect to fittings on the underside of the edge of the mat, the rods may also be formed as described above, with a ball end and integral skirt and optionally an enlargement or surround 181 towards their lower ends of the support rod all integrally and of a plastics material by injection moulding around and to or onto the support rods. The foregoing description of the invention includes preferred forms thereof. Modifications may be made thereto without departing from the scope of the invention as defined in the accompanying claims.
