Good points

  • Passed all impact tests, giving the user good protection from impacts against the frame, mat and enclosure.
  • Easy to assemble with good instructions.
  • Easy to use.
  • Easy to enter and exit - the overlapping sash entry means it can't be used with the entrance open.
  • Easy to relocate.

But

  • Failed 3 major safety tests: the frame failed a structural integrity test and there are hazards from pinch or crush points.
  • Failed 1 minor safety test.
  • This soft-edge springless model has a different feel to traditional designs; the bounce is focused in the centre of the mat and feels softer. There is relatively little bounce at the edges of the mat.
