Inflatable / January 20, 2019 / Melodie Mainville
These are a step above the event rentals but with the same basic concept. Instead of renting inflatables and choosing some employees to man them this company targets specific carnivals fairs and public events like the California State Fair. They set up a permanent location at these events pop up a large inflatable and people purchase tickets to enjoy the inflatable area for a certain period of time. For this company the wear and tear on the inflatables is less sporadic and more of a full time concern. However they make a constant stream of money during the events unlike the one-day rental options.
All it requires is a prime location a large indoor space and a series of inflatables to fill the space. Because of its indoor nature these companies dont experience the same problems with sun damage and accidental punctures that outdoor rental companies face. However with constant use comes typical wear and tear so be prepared to have backup inflatables for replacements while used inflatables are patched and repaired. Also the cost of a large enough rental space will be rather high as well as the cost of utilities and maintenance. So as you can see there are four main options if you want to start an inflatables business.
Many inflatables are made of material that does not stretch upon inflation; a notable exception of that is the balloon whose rubber stretches greatly when inflated. The airship is usually inflated with helium because it is lighter than air and doesnt burn unlike hydrogen airships such because the Hindenburg. Inflatables are extensively utilized for the construction of specific sports pitches military fast-assembly tents camping tent air beams and noise makers. Inflatable aircraft including the Goodyear Inflatoplane were used. Inflation by dynamic ram-air is providing wings for hang gliding and paragliding.
