How to anchor inflatable water sport products?

Create rock-solid anchoring

Many of the inflatable water sports products on East Inflatables Manufacturing recommend the use of an anchoring system for the highest level of safety. But which type of anchor is right for you? There are many ways to anchor your inflatable products. Before moving forward, however, it is wise to master some local regulations regarding what types of anchors can be used at your end. Different places own different anchoring suggestions.

Quality Anchor Rope Is Key

Always start with a qualified anchor rope; nylon rope keeps the best in water and sun. It is recommended to use a nylon rope with a strength of 8mm/0.47. Lines do eventually wear out, so it’s important to check on them periodically.

Shock Absorbing Safety Bungee Cords

Are your anchors not staying put? While building a stronger anchor is a requisite option, using the stretchable shock absorbing Safety Bungee Cord will keep your anchor in position (see pic. a). Typically when a strong wind blows against large water inflatable, the anchor tends to move along as well. This is caused by the force of wind being transferred directly to your anchor through the mooring line. The solution is the stretchable shock absorbing Safety Bungee Cord (length: 3m/ 10ft) which absorbs the force from the wind. Instead of your anchor taking a beating, let the Safety Bungee take the force instead.

Mark Line with Buoy

By attaching a buoy or other float to the end of your anchor line, you’ll find it easier to identify (see pic. b). Attaching a stainless steel snap hook to the buoy simplifies the process of removing your water sports inflatable from the water for cleaning or repair. It also makes it simple to return your product to its previous location.

Environmental and Human Causes for Injury

There are several possible causes for the increase in injuries. Among these causes are environmental conditions, operator error, equipment failure, overcrowding, rough housing, etc.

1 Environmental – Wind and Rain

Wind

Wind is often a factor in injuries caused by inflatables. There have been cases of sudden gusts of wind blowing over inflatables. In July of 2005, “at least three children were injured when a gust of wind sent an inflatable castle flying through the air. The children fell 25-35 feet and landed on pavement. One child was hospitalized in intensive care; two others required surgery.
1

Rain

Another dangerous environmental condition for inflatable rides is rain. The rides can become slippery and people can slide off the inflatable causing injury. The rain can also make ground conditions troublesome by muddying the soil. This can prevent the inflatable from being staked down properly or sufficiently.
2

2 Human Causes – Overcrowding, Operator Error and Other Causes

Overcrowding

Overcrowding is an identified hazard for inflatable rides. In June of 2004 “eight children were injured in a 20-foot fall from an inflatable ride after the ride collapsed. The children were taken to hospitals for treatment of their injuries, most of which were minor.

Overcrowding can occur for many reasons. The reason for overcrowding can be as simple as the operators are unaware of the maximum number of occupants. Other times the occupants can cause the overcrowding themselves, either by not listening to the operator or not reading any signs if they are present.
3

Operator Error

Too many operators regard inflatable rides as ‘big and soft’ and relatively harmless.

In May of 2005, a 24-year-old woman died from injuries. She sustained in a fall from an inflatable climbing wall. Normally, the ride attendant wears a strap around his waist or cinches it to the platform below to prevent a climber’s fall; however the attendant who was working with the victim had apparently failed to attach the strap around his waist, and was not holding it incorrectly. Her legs and lower body hit the inflated base and her head and upper body hit the pavement, resulting in serious head 34 trauma. She died due to these injuries three days later.

Throughout the research there has been a recurring theme; that having attentive, properly trained operators is the first step to reducing injuries on inflatable amusements.
4

Other Causes

Equipment failure, though rare, can be very dangerous.Cables that have been improperly repaired or inflatable attractions that have been quickly patched can cause serious injury. Blowers that suddenly stop working can cause the ride to deflate rapidly and often without warning. This can lead to situations that are very unsafe.
5

The human factor can often come into play. Rough-housing on an inflatable ride can be very dangerous, especially on an inflatable slide or other tall ride. A child could lose their balance and fall, potentially hurting themselves.
6

Another problem that occurs in the inflatable industry is insufficient communication with, or training of, the operator. In April of 2005, “an inflatable ride was carried away in strong winds with a 5-year-old girl and her 22-month-old sister inside. The girls suffered only minor injuries. The girls’ parents rented the ride — an inflatable castle in which children bounce. They say that the release form that they signed warned of the dangers that high winds pose to inflatable rides, but that they never read the paperwork. They say that the rental company should have warned them.

What is the origin of the inflatable?

This is a great discover in 1959.John Scurlock designed the first inflatable model.The place is in Shreveport, Louisiana .The inventor is inventing with inflatable covers for tennis courts when he noticed his employees enjoyed jumping on the covers. His job was a mechanical engineer .In spare time, he like physics. Later,he created inflatable domes,inflatable tents and inflatable signs. The greatest achievement during his life was the invention of the safety air cushion. Then it is used by fire and rescue departments.

With the development of inflatable, it appears as a new way of entertainment.Its predecessor is said to be derived from a large number of cartoons produced by the United States. Because of the film’s animation, cute cartoon vivid, it is very popular among many young children, Therefore, this point will soon be some smart businessman value. They are for functions, school and church festivals and used for recreational purposes, particularly for children.
