Springs: The Heart of a Reformer.

Why keeping springs up-to date could cost around $13000.

Your clients demand quality when using Pilates machines. They also need to be safe too.

When other brands request spring replacement every two years, it may be an attempt to disguise their use of cheap, poorly made springs. This can cost you many dollars in many ways. Cheap springs may fail and break within their two-year service interval, potentially resulting in bodily harm and the knock-on effect of a diminished business reputation. Additionally, the high frequency of replacing springs can be a costly exercise.

Pilatesequip prides itself on Australian manufacturing and quality, a great example being our far superior springs. Most manufacturer’s springs are sourced from China and purchased for around $3 each, and yet they retail for around $80-$90 each. Our Australian-made springs are made to last with a replacement interval of eight years. At a retail cost of approximately $85 per spring, five springs per reformer and an average of 10 reformers in a Reformer class, this saves you $13,000 every eight years.

This drive for quality means you can rest assured in the safety of all users of Pilatesequip products. However, it is still vital to look after machinery to maintain longevity and smooth operation. Free and easy to follow maintenance schedules for all Pilatesequip products are available on the instructions and service web page, to keep your equipment safe and working at its optimum performance.
