Inflatable / January 17, 2019 / Melodie Mainville
This type of inflatable company is easy to operate but is designed for small-scale growth. For instance renting an inflatable to a household for a childs birthday party typically only happens on weekends and the largest inflatable you can buy is one that fits nicely into a large backyard. Bouncers are the most popular inflatables to buy in this situation and ball pits are a secondary choice. Since this type of business only functions on the weekends and holidays (for the most part) this is a good investment for families who are looking to make a little extra money part time.
Inflatables came very much into the public eye as architectural and domestic object when synthetic material became commonplace. Iconic structures like the US Pavillion on the 1970 Osaka Expo by Davis and Brody and Victor Lundys travelling pavillion for that Atomic Energy Commission popularized the idea that inflatables can be a way to build large structures with very extendend interior spans without pillars. These nice hopes for inflatable structures would later be dashed by the many practical difficulties faced by inflatable buildings such as climatization safety sensitivity to wind and fire proofing that currently restrict their use to very particular circumstances.
If you have purchased a used product you can still inquire about getting an owners manual from the bounce house manufacturer. Usually the owners manual will display a step-by-step instruction of how to setup and teardown an inflatable product. This will also cover where the tie downs are where the enter and exits ramps are located where and when to use the product what age group it is designed for and space requirements. The details covered in an owners manual will differ from company to company since one will be more thorough or precise with clearer images than the other.
