Safety Advice for Inflables with Netted Walls
DO NOT jump against the sides.
- No way for kids to safely bounce against walls
- No protection against strong wind
- No solid structural support
- No consistency in netting quality and density
- No rain protection
“In my experience with over 10,000 inflatable rentals every year, I have never seen an inflatable with netted walls that could support 8-12 kids bouncing in and around the walls. You have the choice!”
