Your decision: Cheap or Useful?

There’s nothing better than getting everything right at the first time, today we need to show up at a client’s home with wrong unit!! Has this ever happen to you?

Left Side Strap is easily broken after several times use, why you should buy it if you cannot use it?

Right Side Strap is our new STRAP, it is best built in the business, made of high strength poly webbing material with industrial grade D-rings.

Why this module bouncy castle is so popular?

This is a module bouncy castle with different themed art panels. Featured by detachable banner, you could update your panel to keep pace with the times. Hence, the castle is always the newest one. The latest panel trend: Frozen, Justice League, etc. Every picture is painted by our professional painter, so the images of panels are clearer & more vivid than those downloaded from the Internet. Purchase cost for one regular castle could buy another more hot-selling banner. This is a wise investment indeed.

Another one point, Double Reinforced manual technique has been introduced into our production. We use double or triple stitched, even quadruple stitched in some place where need to be reinforced. We seam another layer of cloth to reinforce in the inflatable’s joint place as well. All of these details show our products much stronger& more durable than any other product from other companies.

Besides these, each corner of two anchorage points of stainless steel, which have long life span and greatly maintain stability when it is secured to the ground. A step attached to the castle is wide enough to cover the entire access. Your girls & boys will not fall off easily. This unit is equipped with two deflation zips, hidden from your view, which could help you accerlate your deflation process.

The last but not least, the best PVC materials of commercial grade is always first choices, which is water-proof, fire-retardant and lead-free. And the thread is anticorrosive nylon, which greatly increases the life span of the bouncy castle. Windows of mesh design could help observe what your kids inside. And the netting size is less than 30 mm to exclude player’s feet to stop player climbing the netting. The basketball hoop is connected by velcro; hence your kids could not hang himself up. This design protect player from breaking his arm.

Why E1-004 is so popular?

This is our best-selling jumping castle this year. But do you know why it is so popular? Several reasons may account for the phenomenon.

First of all, this unit is equipped with a slide & a climb inside. You can play more games and enjoy more interest with your kids, instead of jumping only. What’s more, it features detachable art panel. With different themed banners, it can save much more purchase cost for some more similar castles.

Secondly, each inflatable has eight anchorage points of stainless steel, which have long life span and greatly maintain stability when it is secured to the ground. A step attached to the castle is wide enough to cover the entire access.

The quality of our company

No sacrifice on quality, safety is always our priority. We have been working towards the goal. Under the guidance of the idea, we have been trying our best to upgrade our product materials and manufacturing techniques from beginning to end. In the past, we just started with some slogans for ourselves. But now, we are getting closer to the goal. In the future, we will make persistent efforts to realize it.

From the three periods, you could obviously find our company has been making good progress.

2008-2012, for a start-up company, we insist that best materials are significant to product quality. But we have to admit that we overcame the manufacture techniques. We didn’t pass EN14960 test, ASTM test and didn’t comply with Au standards.

2012-2014, in the mature stage, we put 0.55mm 18oz PVC tarpaulin from Plato into use, which is much more durable than 0.45mm PVC, oxford cloth or nylon. In addition, Double Reinforced techniques have been introduced into production. We use double or triple stitched, even quadruple stitched in some place where needs to reinforce.

2014 until now, based on the original ones, we add more humanized designs to our products. And we try our best to upgrade our materials with 0.55mm 15oz PVC, which is lighter than 18 oz. PVC, but much stronger than that one. The new material is popular among our USA customers. Durability and strength is important, but the safety is a lot more than that. Having passed the latest EN14960 test, we pay more attention to comfort and reduce security risks.
