The Importance of Inflatable Safety Testing

January 07, 2019

Bouncy castles and inflatables need to be safe to use. With incidents having occurred in the past, there are strict regulations for ensuring the safety of inflatables.

Any new inflatable should have an initial test to confirm it complies with BS EN 14960. Every 12 months a bouncy castle or inflatable will need to be retested to ensure that it complies with BS EN 14960.

Broken down to its simplest, the test will comprise of the inspector:

  • Identifying the inflatable and blower by their serial numbers.
  • Checking any previous inspection reports and certificates.
  • Inspectecting any part of the inflatable and its equipment that may affect its safe operation.

These should be carried out by qualified inspectors. At this time, there are currently only two inspection schemes recognised by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), one of these is PIPA (we have facilities to undertake a PIPA inspection), the other is ADIPS.

Bouncy castles, inflatable slides and obstacle courses are covered under the PIPA scheme, but bungee runs, and rodeo bulls are not.

When you purchase an inflatable from us at Premier Inflate, they come with a safety certificate, which lasts for 12 months (don’t worry, we send a reminder after 11 months).

When the time comes, you can then either bring them back to us to get them retested, or you can look into local RPII/PIPA inspectors some of whom are mobile and can come to you for ease.
