The breaking strength is 325 pounds.
It is recommended to have enough bungee strands for no less than five times the person’s weight.
Bungee will stretch more when it is hot so this must be factored in. Also, the cover is UV sensitive so you cannot expose your bungee to sunlight. When using outdoors, cover your bungee when not in use and keep out of the heat as much as possible.
If performing where there is heat over 68 degrees, your bungee will stretch more no matter what type it is.
The bungee has a life and must be examined prior to each use and must be retired and replaced depending on the use pattern.
Each use is different. You must weigh the person using the bungee to ensure you have the correct number of bungees for their weight. Guessing a person’s weight is not accurate.
It is recommended to have experience when using bungee for any use involving acrobatic or dance use.
