PIPA TESTED! BOUNCY CASTLE PARTIES FROM CROWN CASTLES
A Bouncy castle party has always been a popular choice for a children's birthday party or even just a fun day with the kids during the summer months and they have been a regular attraction at events and fayres all over the world. If you are thinking about having a bouncy castle party always make sure that you research the company before you book!
On the whole, the bouncy castle industry is a safe one and inflatables today are built to the highest of standards, set out by HSE. There is, unfortunately, still a small minority of rouge hirers who only care about making money, cutting corners and safety is put aside. Always check the bouncy castle you are going to hire for your party has been tested and any honest company will provide this to you on request.
The image below is of one of the first inflatables ever made and below is a little history behind the 'Bouncy Castle Party'
Bouncy castle Parties have been going on for as long as many of us can remember and a lot of us will have fond memories of them as a child, but today's bouncy castles are worlds apart from the earliest of bouncy castles.
The first inflatable was constructed by John Scurlock in 1959 after being asked to create inflatable covers and they did not resemble inflatables that we see today at bouncy castle parties, being just an inflatable bed with no walls.
He found his son's jumping on the inflatable bed and having a great time while doing it. This led him to create the first bouncy castle dome which has more of a resemblance to the castles we see today.
Unfortunately, back then there were no regulations surrounding the erection of bouncy castles and accidents did happen and children got hurt for obvious reasons, this is clear to see when you look at an image of the first bouncy castle. Fortunately, today, bouncy castle manufactures need to abide by strict requirements when building any inflatable, from things like the Height of walls, depth of the inflatable, the width of the step and the distance needed between the blower and the inflatable, and even to the type of material used.
These requirements led to safer bouncy castles and a, more enjoyable experience for all. But still, an inflatable is only as safe as the operator and improper setup of an inflatable, misguided use and poorly supervised children, along with improper maintenance can lead to just as serious accidents as a poorly made inflatable.
(Fun Fact - Did you know that in America they call bouncy castles a bounce house! They also do not have the same strict regulations that we have to abide by in the UK)
That is why bouncy castle operators now also need to abide by strict guidelines and laws when hiring out to the public and need to ensure that we have our inflatables tested annually by a qualified RPii Tester, we also need to ensure that everything is done in a safe and professional manner. Insurance is also a must for any hiring company and although it is not a legal requirement many operators including Crown Castles do hold the correct public liability insurance and are members of certain organisations where bouncy castle operators from all over the world can meet and discuss safety issues and getting valuable information from industry experts.
There are, however, still many cowboys out there who hire out dangerous, untested, bouncy castles, normally undercutting the legitimate companies. They can charge significantly lower prices as they have none of the overheads a legitimate company have, things like annual testing, repairs & insurance and are more than likely not paying any tax, this small minority within the industry sometimes undercut companies significantly, hiring a bouncy castle, in some cases for as little as £20!
There is still a lot of good and trustworthy companies out there and Crown Castles is one of them trustworthy companies, we really care about your safety and it always comes first before anything else and this is why our inflatables are PIPA Tested.
Our customers know when booking their bouncy castle party with us that they're in safe hands and that we will go above and beyond where ever possible.
