Louisville Bounce House Safety Tips

Safe Water Slide Guidelines

Unfortunately, when it comes to inflatable safety, not all bounce house rental companies are created equal. Gator Jump takes safety seriously. We follow the guidelines recommended by ASTM and Safety Inflatable Operators Training Organization, which include securing each water slide, bounce house, obstacle course, or inflatable game with 18” ground stakes. All of our inflatables are regularly updated and replaced with new items, and we only offer high-quality commercial-grade products.

Sadly, many party companies rent unsafe older inflatable rentals, which are dirty and outdated. They also lack the safety advancements that new inflatables have. Some bounce house rental companies even offer cheap, low-grade inflatable rentals. These units are designed for residential use, so they lack the necessary safety features to keep your family safe.

Inflatable Safety:

1. The bounce house and inflatables must be supervised at all times by adults to ensure safety, and numbers must be limited in accordance with the ages and size of the bounce house and inflatables.

2. Observe the manufacturer's safety guidelines, which can be found on the unit's safety sign.

3. You must remove shoes, glasses, jewelry, badges, hair barrettes, and any other object that could cause injury or damage to the party rental item before entering.

4. The participants must avoid flips, somersaults, wrestling, roughhousing, pushing, colliding, or any other physical contact in order to prevent sustaining any injuries.

5. No silly string, food, drink, candy, chewing gum, or any other sticky substance is allowed inside or near the inflatable.

6. No one under the influence of prescription medication or any substance that inhibits the users balance, cognitive ability or perception should use the bounce house, waterslides, obstacle course or game.

7. No smoking or flame of any kind can be within 50 feet of the unit.

8. Never allow anyone to bounce on the front safety step or anywhere on the inflatables exterior.

9. It is prohibited to climb into inflatable walls, hang from them, or sit on them.

10. Avoid placing units near swimming pools.
Inflatables should not be used by subjects over the age of 15 unless the unit is designed for adults.

11. Do not tie or fasten anything to the inflatable. Renters are responsible for any damage or excessive debris that occurs and repair and cleaning charges will be charged accordingly.

12. The unit should be deflated during inclement weather with wind speeds in excess of 15mph. When the unit is re-inflated, allow the vinyl surface to dry as it can be extremely slippery when wet.

Safest Bounce House Rentals in Kentucky

The WATCHDOG Blower-Siren (Series 2) helps prevent suffocation, dangerous falls and other common accidents caused by the sudden deflation of inflatable bounce houses.

Make Bounce House Safety Your Priority

Inflatable bounce houses and castles require a continuously operating blower fan to keep them inflated. What happens when that blower fan stops inflating? When an inflatable begins to deflate, it immediately loses structural integrity. This can cause children to fall out of the inflatable, often from heights high enough to injure. Worse, those still in the inflatable can become trapped underneath the heavy vinyl. Once armed, the WATCHDOG continuously monitors inflation. If it detects a problem, it automatically sounds the alarm with its powerful 100 decibel siren.
