Inflatable / February 17, 2019 / Laetitia Beauchesne
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.
Inflatables are basically commercial signages that are filled with air. It can assume any imaginable shape-from a simple circular ball to a giant robot. Hot air balloons can also be categorized under inflatables advertising. Inflatable costumes and inflatable balloons are some of the most popular forms of inflatables.
