Inflatable / February 7, 2019 / Sydney De La Ronde
The DVD Ant Farm has directions for creating your personal inflatables using plastic bags and an iron. The low technological barrier to building inflatables is additional lowered by DIY instruction sets like the Inflatocookbook. The inflatable party rentals industry is relatively premature when compared to other industries for party equipment and supplies rental. For instance there is no authoritative bounce house safety organization to control the inflatable rental industry. The top safety regulatory organizations are the states which designate the safety rules for that particular area and if there are no such rules then they follow those set by the ASTM.
Next you should tightly secure the blower(s) to the inflatable tube(s) and close any other inflation tubes. Now you should check to see if the location has an electricity outlet with a GFI box. Refer back to the blower manufacturers owners manual to check the correct electricity requirements extension cord type generator information etc. Now once the electricity requirements have been satisfied you can inflatable the product. After the product is fully inflated you will need to fasten all of the tie downs using the correct required stakes to anchor the inflatable into position.
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.
