All of our inflatable equipment is tested annually and has been issued with a certificate of pass from a PIPA or RPII Inspector.

Also all our inflatables our inspected on each hire and we have a complete record of in-house testing and maintenance schedules.


Although not compulsory, It is strongly recommended that any person organising an event undertakes a risk assessments of the entire site, especially if you are expecting a large number of excited attendees all in one area.

A risk assessment will not eliminate the risks but will assist the organisers to identify any potential hazards and manage the risks accordingly. The risk assessments below have been compiled by us using guidance from the Health & Safety Executive, The British Inflatable Hirers Association and our many years of experience in event management.

The safety steps we take are above and beyond what is required below.
