Safety Tips

Hiring any inflatable is the icing on the cake for ANY event. To us here at 8 Ball Inflatables safety is paramount and below we have provided a few tips for you to help keep everyone safe and the most out of your hire with 8 Ball Inflatables.

Bumps and Bruises.

The most common injuries occur from people bumping into each other. To avoid this happening, adult supervision is necessary. There should always be a responsible adult monitoring, regulating the number of persons in the castle at one time, and assisting when needed. This is the responsibility of the person hiring the inflatable.

Poor Set-Up.

This is the top reason for injuries. It’s also the reason we insist on setting up the inflatables for your. We have years of experience in setting up bouncy castles and our staff has been specially trained to safely install and remove inflatables. It’s best to leave the set up and removal to the professionals.

Power Failure.

Bouncy castles and other inflatables need electricity to stay inflated. They can deflate very quickly in a power failure. While this is unlikely, it is important to be aware that it could happen and to supervise accordingly.

Sticky Situations.

With kids around, not much stays clean for long. Little hands covered in frosting can quickly make a bouncy castle quite messy. We recommend keeping wipes on hand so little ones can clean up before entering the bouncy castle.

Wind and Rain.

Yes, we’ve heard reports of bouncy castles taking flight, too. Yes, it’s scary. We take careful precautions, however, and keep an eye on the weather forecast. We will never set up inflatables in high wind situations we class high winds to be anything over 20mph on the day of hire. If this was to occur we will have to cancel your booking for health and safety reasons and a FULL refund or FREE future hire will be provided. If there is adverse weather and your event goes ahead we will insure that ALL inflatables are securely fastened to the ground.

Following these few precautions will ensure your special event will be memorable. We here at 8 Ball Inflatables want to make sure that your days if fun, affordable and more importantly safe for ALL to enjoy. For safety, be sure to work with professionals.
