Inflatables must be  double and quadruple stitched, and thread used for those seams should withstand a force of 35 lbs per inch before tearingReinforcements Inflatables have high stress points areas. These points may be entry areas, floor and uprights joints, or wherever structure panels meet. A quality inflatable will have strong reinforcements in these high stress point areas, that will ensure the unit stays together and lasts longer.  AnchorsAnchor points are keys to keeping the unit stable in up to a 20 mph winds. A tether, or an anchoring system, is only as strong as its weakest link. Our anchors are constructed of heavy duty vinyl. Two inch heavy duty D Rings are used in the anchor points. Some of our competitors use polyethylene webbing for anchor points. This polyethylene webbing could age and weather in a short period of time.Inflation/DeflationTo keep the unit inflated it is critical that the inflation hose where the blower is connected have a perfect joint, so it won't come detached from the blower, when it is  accidentally pulled  around, when unit is in use.  All units should have a second blower tube, As inflatables get older they tend to lose more air between the seams, compared to when they are new. Down the road you will find the need for this second inflation tube.  Preventing sudden unexpected deflation is very important when it comes to inflatable safety. In the case of a blower failure, the unit should remain inflated long enough time to allow participants to exit safely from the inflatable. Ensure units have air flaps that prevent air from blowing out of the unit in the event of blower failure. For normal deflation, a good quality inflatable should have deflation zippers that have a Velcro sealed flap covers.Removable CoversAfter many years of use, high-volume traffic areas, like steps and sliding and climbing areas of an inflatable, are the first places that require replacement.  Look for inflatables are made with removable and replaceable covers. If you purchase an inflatable from a Chinese manufacturer, when it comes to replacing the covers, you could be in for a big surprise.  Many Chinese manufactures do not sell replacement covers. Finger-Safe InflatablesSome manufacturers use 1" or 2" netting for bounce house windows and netting for basketball hoops. Children playing inside inflatables can catch their fingers or their teeth on this netting, causing serious injury. Make sure the inflatable you purchase use 1/8” mesh for construction on all windows and basketball hoops. The mesh is still transparent enough to allow for easy supervision of children.Safety DoorsIt a good to have self closing Velcro flap on the entrance of every bounce house and combo unit prevents children from possibly falling out of a bounce house, and gives easy access for supervision to enter the inflatable.Safety SignsReputable manufactures places more safety signs on every inflatable. Safety signs ensure that all riders are aware of the safety and operation rules. These signs protect you and your customers. Lead Content
