How to set up inflatable water park trampoline?

Inflatable water park trampoline is the one of popular element for water park. Our commercial grade Inflatable Water Trampolines are made of 0.9mm PVC tarpaulin, the diameters are from 3-6m(10ft-19.7ft) at your options..With Stainless steel on it, for the safety problem, we will add the mat on the steel to avoid hurt. It can connect with slide, bridge or other elements.Your best unique choice for aqua park.

Today, I would like to share some points how to set up the trampoline as following:

1. Find a flat location with plenty of room to walk around the trampoline frame. Lay out the frame pipes in a circle. Slide the ends of the pipes into each other then insert and screw together each section us-ing the enclosed bolts. When finished you will have a flat round frame.

Next, lay the jump mat in the center of the trampoline’s frame. Take 4 springs and attach one at 12:00, 3:00, 6:00 and 9:00. When installing the springs the hooks should be pointing towards the ground. Pulling the springs will require some physical strength. Complete the spring installation by filling in the rest of the springs until all slots are filled.

On 15′ & 20′ trampolines you may need three people to complete this part. Each person will space themselves equally around the trampoline frame. Lift the trampoline frame and set it on top of the flotation tube. Once the trampoline is in position, strap the frame of the trampoline frame to the flotation tube. Be sure the straps are securely fastened to the hardware. Check the frame straps after each use to assure the proper position on the tube.
6

The final step is to install the spring pad. Tie the spring pad around the trampoline frame. Use a double knot to prevent the spring pad from coming loose.

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.

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.

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.

How many seconds a safe inflatable bouncer should fall down after when blower off?

People always pay much attention on bouncer safety. They will check its material, design and anchor points. However, they may ignore a very important point which is fall down time.

If the inflatable bouncer falls down in case of power off in several seconds, both players and supervisor can’t have enough time to react. It is very dangerous that players were overwhelmed in the inflatable bouncer.

So guess how many seconds a safe inflatable bouncer should fall down after when blower off?
Answer is 15 seconds.
15 seconds is enough for people escape from falling inflatable bouncer.
All inspection agencies require this strictly, for instance, EN 14960 certificate.

East Inflatables meet EN 14960 certificate, of course, our inflatable can fall down after 15 seconds when blower off.
Why can we East Inflatables do this?

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.

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.
1

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.
