How A Foam Pit Can Benefit Your Business
Whether you own a gym, a trampoline park or something of the extreme sports variety, investing in a foam pit is something to seriously consider. Foam pits are not fun, they’re and incredibly versatile. Sure, the premise of a foam pit is practically the same in all scenarios, however, they can be used in so many different types of sports and leisure activities.
Our subsidiary company Gym Pit Foam, has been supplying quality pit foam to many happy customers for years now. We’ve not only supplied foam pit filling to customers in the UK, but customers from overseas have also approached us seeking our expertise. But why should you invest your hard earned cash in a foam pit? We’re going to explore the reasons why.
Everybody Loves Foam Pits
Even the most hardcore of Scrooges can’t resist a smile when presented with the prospect of flinging themselves into a foam pit. There’s nothing quite like being able to abandon our primal instincts to protect ourselves from injury and simply letting loose. Jump, flip, spin or cha-cha into a foam pit, it really doesn’t matter, as long as you’re having fun. Foam pits are great fun for people of all ages. They’re a fantastic selling point for any business and are guaranteed to ensure returning custom.
Foam Pits Are Safe
Much safer than a solid floor. It’s very much unlikely that you’ll ever break a bone in foam pit. Injuries that occur within your business are never great for your company image; even if you have gone to great lengths to prevent it. If you happen to own a leisure business, chances are that you’re going to attract the occasional daredevil. Aside from wrapping them head to toe in bubble wrap, foam pits are a great way to keep customers safe from injury. They can still attempt insane stunts and you don’t need to worry about anybody getting hurt; everybody’s happy!
Our Foam Pits Are Fire Retardant
All the pit foam we sell adheres to and exceeds UK Fire Safety Regulations. If you are considering investing in a foam pit, make sure that you’re purchasing quality pit foam. Foam purchased from overseas, for example, does not uphold the same standards of UK safety. Chances are if you choose to purchase pit foam from overseas, it will be of cheap quality and will not be fire retardant.
If a fire did happen to break out in your establishment, a foam pit that is not fire retardant will be the first thing to go up in flames. What’s more, if your insurance company finds out that you haven’t used fire retardant pit foam, they may refuse to pay out. You can’t put a price on safety, so make sure you invest in high-quality pit foam.

Jump For Joy With Trampoline Park Foam
UK’s Trampoline Park Craze Soars.
In 2014 the United Kingdom was home to only four indoor trampoline parks. The first of which, Bounce, in Milton Keynes, opened in May 2014. Today, there are over 100 indoor trampoline parks in the UK, most of which use trampoline park foam.
But what is it that has attracted so many investors to pursue a business in the world of indoor trampoline parks? Why are we at GB Foam supplying more trampoline park foam to businesses than ever before? Why are the people of the UK and mainland Europe suddenly so fascinated with bouncing around? Let’s jump to it and find out.
What’s causing the Jump in Indoor Trampoline Parks?
Trampolines were once seen as a novelty for kids or a tool for gymnasts. Sure, as adults we’ve all had a bounce on the garden trampoline after one too many, the less said about that though the better. Kids still love trampolines today and naturally so do gymnasts. However, we’re also seeing a rising surge in adults who love to bounce and jump for joy. Trampolines are excellent fun no matter what age you are. With the introduction of indoor trampoline parks, the stigma of trampolines being associated with children is being cast aside.
With the introduction and growing success of the UK’s first indoor trampoline parks, many business brains took notice of the increasing demand. Today the UK is home to many trampoline parks, mostly all fitted with trampoline park foam pits.
Entrepreneurs of mainland Europe are beginning to take note of the UK’s successful indoor trampoline parks. Now many are starting to show up across the continent. Although popular with children and teenagers, many adults also show a keen interest in this pastime. This provides a huge spectrum for potential custom. With an average price of £11.00 a session, that’s potentially a huge return on your investment.
How Can Trampoline Park Foam Benefit A Trampoline Park?
Installing a trampoline park foam pit into your trampoline park provides a wide range of potential. A trampoline park foam pit enhances a customer’s experience. Some trampoline parks can prove to be relatively restrictive. A foam pit, however, broadens the possibilities for users.
Trampoline park foam pits allow for much bigger stunts and much more fun, whilst providing unmatched protection. They can also be combined with a number of unique activities such as rock climbing. Our specialist company Gym Pit Foam recently compiled a comprehensive list of the ultimate uses for pit foam. For more on this, make sure to read Foam Cubes and Their Many Uses over on our Gym Pit Foam website.
A trampoline park foam pit has the potential to help introduce brand new elements to a park. This, in turn, helps businesses to stand out from the growing list of competitors. To truly become a cut above the rest, a trampoline park foam pit is a must.

Foam Pit Colours, Why Brand Them?
Foam Pit Colour Association – Understanding the Consumer Mind
What springs to mind if someone mentions a red can, a purple chocolate bar, a blue bird or golden arches? Your mind will have likely linked to a number of popular brands, these being Coca-Cola, Cadburys, Twitter, and McDonald’s. But why is this? If we were to ask the same question but to remove the colour, would you draw the same conclusions? A can, a chocolate bar, a bird and some arches. This question immediately becomes much more ambiguous and is harder to draw a conclusion from. Considering this, we can assume that it is in fact colour which we predominantly associate with branding.
If you value the importance of colour in brand association, then you should definitely consider your foam pit colours for your gym pit and trampoline park.
Why Is Colour Important In Branding?
Studies suggest that our brains considerably prefer recognisable brands. Consumers are likely to trust them to a greater extent and therefore spend money with them. This is exactly the reason why you need to push your brands colour scheme wherever possible. Colours are much easier to familiarise than shapes are. Logos are of course important to any brand, but to an extent, colours are more so.
Think of your favourite sports team. As much as it may not seem that way, they too are a brand. Every sports team has a colour scheme unique to them and marketing teams work hard to ensure that those colours are placed wherever possible.
Players of Chelsea FC, a popular British football team adorn a distinct royal blue and white trim kit. It isn’t by coincidence however that their entire stadium (Stanford Bridge) also follows this same colour scheme. Chelsea FC is well associated with the colour blue and many people recognise this team by their colours alone. If you were to ask somebody who didn’t follow football what colour kit Chelsea FC wears there’s a good chance they would still say blue. Ask them what image is shown on the team’s emblem though and they’ll likely not know. You too can achieve this level of association with the correct foam pit colours.
What Foam Pit Colours Should I Choose?
There’s a lot of speculation as to the way in which consumers respond to the sight of certain colours. The colour red, for example, is considered to evoke excitement in the cerebral cortex. Brands such as Coca-Cola, Virgin, Nintendo, and Lego utilise this colour reaction to their advantage. There is evidence to suggest that this is true. However, most academics agree that relying on these stereotypes is nowhere near as important as building your brands personality.
Our Gym Pit Foam website offers an extensive range of foam pit colours and types. From Best Value Gym Pit Foam to premium XTREME Foam, we can cater to your needs. In addition to the vast range of foam pit colours we offer, we can also colour match most Pantone and RAL colours. This means that you’ll be able to find the perfect colour match which strongly supports your company branding. Whether you’re after bright coloured pit foam in red, blue, green, yellow or more! Our team of experts are more than capable of finding the perfect colours for you.
