Inflatable / September 30, 2018 / Tempeste DAvis.
Inflatables should also never be used during rain or thunderstorm. Playing in an inflatable during a rain or when it is wet can create the surface to be extremely slippery and thus lead to a participant injury. Also you dont want to use the inflatables when the weather is extremely hot. Inflatables can get pretty hot especially during the summer heat and thus cause heat stroke or worse. Since inflatables take a lot of energy out of participants it is vital to keep participants hydrated so they do not experience dehydration or heat stroke. The person renting the inflatable should ALWAYS be trained and instructed how the inflatable works so there is no confusion about the functionality and how its supposed to perform.
Some of these optional rudders just help the kayak track straight. A lot of inflatable kayaks have maneuverability comparable to hard-shell boats. If youve been looking into the inflatables industry and have decided you want to get involved then you should know that you have four main options to choose from. After all inflatables arent just for backyard play rentals anymore. To be a really successful businessperson you will need to choose a specific avenue of operation for your company. I will list these avenues in order of size. Your first option is the basic backyard rental company.
If youve owned one of the older cheaper style inflatable boats you know you also have to invest in repair patches or a roll of duct tape. New high quality inflatable kayaks are changing peoples impressions of inflatable boats. New inflatable crafts are made from puncture and abrasion resistant rubber often reinforced with polyester fabric. This is much stronger than the PVC material used for most cheap inflatable boats. Under normal circumstances it is quite unlikely that you would puncture these new rubber materials. Even if you did most inflatable kayaks have at least three separate air chambers.
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.
