5 Reasons to Choose a High Pressure Inflatable Structure
Published on 12/02/2019
When it comes to sourcing a temporary structure for your event, the choice has never been greater. With more and more moving away from the traditional tents and marquees, brands are looking for the opportunity to stand out from the crowd with something unique. We’ve taken a look at some of the benefits of high pressure (HP) inflatable structures and why to consider air-beam structures for your next event.
Firstly, you might be wondering what makes a structure ‘high pressure.’ Here’s a quick explaination of how we use high frequency welders to manufacture our inflatables.
High frequency welding uses an electromagnetic field and pressure to join materials. The electrical energy passes through the material, usually PVC or PU, and the molecules within start moving. This creates heat, which in turn softens the material and fuses it together. We use bespoke tools and parts to make our manufacturing process as efficient as possible.
Here’s why you should consider using a high pressure creative temporary structure:
High Wind Loading and Performance
The weld seams of inflatable temporary structures means less airloss through the seams and the pressure inside the structure can be easily monitored and maintained. Our range of air-beam inflatable structures includes the EventStation and AirDesic, with wind-ratings of over 60mph.
The use of high-frequency welding machines increases the accuracy of the seams during manufacture. Based in the UK, Baconinflate’s manufacturing facility uses bespoke tooling to further simplify our designs. This means the structures can be fabricated using less parts and less time!
We understand that power is sometimes limited at events. Thats why it is important that our inflatable structures use efficient fans. They draw only 6-8amps on running. This is only possible because the welded structures hold their pressure very well.
High pressure structures are silent in operation. Sound associated with air movement is lessened because minimal air can escape from the seams. In addition to this, the fans used are much quieter – they don’t need to be so powerful in order to maintain the pressure.
Covers and canopies that are welded are fully waterproof, as all of the seams are bonded tightly together. This avoids having to spend many production hours sealing stitch seams by hand – so we can keep manufacturing costs to a minimum!
