Inflatable / January 31, 2019 / Melodie Mainville
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.
Delivery in any closed van or pickup truck (with products securely fastened down) would do. Before you can start actually setting up an inflatable product you should be very confident that you KNOW how to setup and operate your moon bounce. You might want to check how many tie downs are required weight of each tie down electricity requirements weight capacity and so forth. Now once you have arrived at your setup location you should first examine the area to make sure there will be enough flat evened space with no overhead objects. Once this has been satisfied you can begin rolling out your product as designated in the owners manual.
