Newport Galvanizers has sprung into action after being called upon to help one of the UK’s largest manufacturers of bungee trampolines.
The plant has been providing its specialist hot-dip galvanizing service to Bungee Trampolines UK for over four years, helping to protect the metal and steel components that the company uses to construct its range of fairground rides and trampolines. As well as designing and creating custom-made bungee trampolines – which is a huge attraction for thrill-seekers and adrenaline-junkies – Bungee Trampolines UK also produces rides for funfairs, such as the ‘Race O’ Rama’, a popular car-racing ride for children.
In addition to galvanizing the steel components used to make the rides, Newport Galvanizers also processes the steel chassis and frames of the trailers which transport the rides to many fun-filled occasions, such as shopping centres, funfairs and private parties across the UK and internationally, with rides even reaching Malaysia.
John Clements, Founder of Bristol-based Bungee Trampolines UK, said: “We find that galvanizing our steel is important because it not only provides the steel with an extremely high standard finish, it also helps protect it from weathering and other types of corrosion. Newport Galvanizers always provides us with a very fast turnover and first-class service, and we look forward to working alongside them in the years to come.”
Mike Small, Sales Manager of Newport Galvanizers, explained: “We are really pleased to have been able to help with Bungee Trampolines UK, their innovative and exciting ideas have been a pleasure to work with over the last four years. John keeps asking me to have a go on a bungee trampoline, but I haven’t quite been able to pluck up the courage yet!”
