Safety instructions for safe use of inflatables

It is the responsibility of the person who is hiring this Bouncing Castle to ensure that all possible steps are taken to avoid injury or damage to the Inflatable. Please ensure that the following Safety instructions are followed:

These units have an age limit of 15 years of age. Please ensure that no-one over this age uses the equipment. Unless specified adults are not allowed to use the equipment.

No food, drinks or chewing gum to be allowed on or near the Bouncy Castle which will avoid choking and mess (Please note that if the Inflatable is collected in a dirty condition then the person hiring it will incur a cleaning charge of a minimum of £25).

All shoes, glasses, jewellery and badges MUST be removed before using the Bouncy Castle.

No face paints, party poppers, coloured streamers or silly string to be used either on or near the Bouncy Castle.

No smoking or barbecues near the Bouncy Castle.

Climbing, hanging or sitting on walls is DANGEROUS and must not be allowed.

A responsible ADULT must supervise the Bouncy castle at all times.

Always ensure that the Bouncy Castle is not overcrowded and limit numbers according to the age and size of the Children using it. Try to avoid large and small Children from using it at the same time.

Always ensure that Children are not pushing, colliding, fighting or behaving in a manner likely to injure or cause distress to others.

No pets, toys or sharp instruments are allowed on or near the Bouncy Castle.

If the Bouncy Castle is not being used for any part of the day, please switch the blower off at the mains.

Do not allow anyone to bounce on the front safety step as a Child could easily bounce off the inflatable and get hurt. The step is there to assist users to safely enter and exit the castle.

Ensure that no-one with a history of back or neck problems is allowed on the Bouncy Castle or any Child that is feeling unwell.

Do not allow anyone to be on the Bouncy castle during inflation or deflation as this is DANGEROUS.

Please ensure that Children are not attempting somersaults and are clothed appropriately, and that nothing can fall out of their pockets.

The Bouncy Castle should not be used if it becomes wet on the jumping area. In the event of rain, and a rain cover is not fitted, the unit should not be used.

In the event of heavy rain, it is strongly recommended that the Bouncy Castle be switched off. Any wetness, including bubbling (which is normal)can be dried with a towel.

In the event that the blower stops working, please ensure all users get off the inflatable immediately. The extension lead has a safety reset button, try pressing this, also check the fuses and make sure the blower tube or deflation tube has not come undone or something has not blown onto and is obstructing the blower. In the event that it overheats, or loses power, switch the blower off at the mains, then switch it back on again 1 or 2 minutes later. If it does not restart then contact us straight away.
