The entertainment value we get, from having a good bounce around on an inflatable can put a smile on anyones face. However, like most things in life, danger can be lurking around every corner. Un-inspected and faulty bouncy castles can take the fun out of any party. When choosing a bouncy castle hire company, you should always have safety factors, like the following in mind. Here are some points to keeping your bouncy castle hire in Sheffield a safe one.
A responsible adult over the age of 18 years, should supervise children on the Bouncy Castle at all times. This person should ensure, that children on the bouncy castle don't do any of the following. Acrobatics, horseplay, climb on the walls of the inflatable, are all a similar height, do not exceed the height/age limit of the inflatable. A whistle is always handy to have on you to get the children's attention. There are many more safety points that I could mention here but the list really can be an extensive one.

All reputable Bouncy Castle Hire companies will have annual testing carried out on their equipment. There are various testing bodies including PIPA, RPII and ADIPS. The testing methods and procedures are identical and ensure all inflatable equipment conforms to EN 14960 standard. Every piece of equipment is issued with a certificate after passing the inspection. Certificates should be presented whenever requested and any reputable company will have no hesitation in doing so.
Public Liability Insurance
All reputable bouncy Castle Hire companies will have public liability insurance. Cream Castles has insurance for up to £5 million. We always provide an email copy if requested and also have a laminated copy onboard delivery vehicles. However this insurance covers the hire company for safe set up procedure and faults with equipment. Anybody who hires a bouncy castle must have their own public liability covering his/her liability arising from the use of the equipment. Don't always assume because the bouncy castle hire company has insurance, this then protects you from any subsequent claim. The inflatable hire company would have to provide you with supervision, to be covered on their insurance.
