Trampoline pads, or bumpers as they are sometimes referred to as, are guaranteed to be fine outside in the elements. However it is recommended to cover the padding over the harsh winter months for the best life on your trampoline. Trampoline pads should not deteriorate if they are properly looked after and sheltered from the elements. This can be done by covering both the padding and trampoline bed with a cover or by removing the padding over the harsh winter months. It is important that you use a trampoline cover as this will allow water to pass through while protecting the pad from freezing during the frosty mornings. Providing the padding is looked after and correctly stored away over the winter you will usually find good quality pads lasting well over five years.
