Expected from you:

On delivery, if the inflatable will not fit in the space provided the hirer will still be charged the total outstanding amount of the hire. We cannot be held responsible if the inflatable does not fit. Please note: It is the hirers responsibility to check the space required for their chosen inflatable and ensure there is enough space provided, this includes the ceiling height to the lowest part in indoor venues. All sizes are written on each inflatable description. Please contact us if you are unsure. If there is not adequate power available or within 30 metres of the inflatable, we will not be able to set up safely and the hirer will still be charged the full amount. If you require us to supply a generator on the day, there is a minimum £40 surcharge plus hire of the generator and any delivery costs if applicable. Please note: We do not carry more the 30 Metres of cable per inflatable and it might not be possible for us to supply a generator at short notice. The hirer will still be charged the full hire price.

Safety is our number one priority at all times. We reserve the right to refuse a hire for any reason if we feel health and safety law will be breached in any way. Our staff are fully trained in the safe use of inflatables and their say is final. Full payment will still be required by the hirer.

The weather plays a large factor in outdoor hires, in certain circumstances we may need to cancel a hire on the day due to bad weather i.e. extreme rain or wind. Please see the next section for an explanation on anchorage and wind speeds:

Hard surface Anchorage (not grass or earth)

To safely secure a bouncy castle to a hard surface (concrete or tarmac) we use an anchor bolt system. This involves drilling a 10mm hole and inserting a bolt that is securely fastened to the inflatable which we remove when finished. Each hole is filled in using clear silicone upon request. We do not take any responsibility to damages that are caused by these bolts and have the right to refuse any surface which is not suitable for our anchorage systems. Patio slabs cannot be drilled in to but can be lifted (by the hirer) to use our peg system. There is an additional charge for anchoring inflatables on hard surface.

The European standard 4.2.1 Anchorage

The inflatable shall be provided with an anchorage and/or ballast system and any necessary accessories enabling the inflatable to be securely fixed to the ground. Each inflatable shall have at least six anchorage points. The number of anchorage points shall be calculated in accordance with Annex A. They shall be distributed around the perimeter of the inflatable (see also 4.2.3) and shall be fitted with metal ends. The maximum wind-speed in which inflatables shall be used outdoors is 38 km/h (Force 5 on the Beaufort Scale); see Annex B. When used outdoors, the inflatable shall be secured to the ground, preferably with ground stakes where the ground is suitable. Each anchorage point on the inflatable and all of the components of the anchorage and/or ballast system, e.g. ropes, webbings, metal attachments, stakes, weights, shall withstand a force of 1 600 N. The direction of the exerted force shall be at an angle to the ground of 30° to 45°. Ground stakes shall incline+away from the direction of the exerted force. Ground stakes shall be a minimum of 380 mm in length and a minimum of 16 mm in diameter and their tops shall be rounded. The system shall expose no more than 25 mm of the stake above ground level (see Figure 3).When the inflatable is used indoors, the anchorage and/or ballast system should be used, when necessary, to maintain stability. There is no minimum requirement for force resistance indoors.
