Enjoy Party Inflatables the Safe Way!
Installing party inflatables is a surefire way of adding life to any party. But while some see them as a definite source of fun, they can also be a cause of accidents if not managed correctly. The good thing is high-quality inflatables from Astro Jump
are strictly designed for safety. You just have to know how to choose and use them well.
Below, we enumerate facts about safety of party inflatables plus tips on how to enjoy them safely at your next celebration.
1. Consider the materials and craftsmanship
Whether you are buying a party inflatable or renting one, make sure that it is made only out of the best material. Inflatables take a lot of abuse so look for those made of durable materials like PVC tarpaulin and woven oxford cloth. For the stitching, the best ones are those that have double, triple, or if you can manage--even quadruple stitching.
2. Take note of the weather
Wind is the number one enemy of party inflatables. Have an observant eye towards the weather and deflate the inflatable once the wind picks up to 20 miles per hour or higher. How can you know when to pack up? A good indicator is when your pants start flapping around you like a flag!
3. Get good technicians
For those renting party inflatables, one very important consideration is the technicians who will be installing and managing the attraction. Depending on the size of the installation, serious operators even use 30 to 40 inch heavy-duty metal rods to keep them secure. At Astro Jump, our technicians are professionals ensuring that our installations are safe.
4. Ask about the warranty
This can be a little vague because there are no national inspection regulations or guidelines for party inflatables. Parents can ask about state inspections and requirements since this will, of course, vary from state to state. Astro Jump is covered by liability insurance, and we inspect our own products.
5. Be diligent
You rented a party inflatable to have fun, we know. But being diligent about how you use it is also a must to keep everyone safe. Users should be of similar height, weight, and age range. Do not let adults jump in with the children. If you want to have the older ones get a taste of the fun too, consider having a separate unit for the kids.
Unlike what most believe, party inflatables are not "install-and-leave" attractions . Practicing due diligence is still the best way to ensure that people can have fun safely at your next party. Children using the equipment should be supervised by an adult.
