How does weather affect bouncy castle hire?

You may be wondering how weather affects bouncy castle hire. After all, planning an outdoor even during the great British summer can be a nightmare! As we’ve seen already this summer, the weather can go from record breaking heat to chilly and autumnal in a matter of days, and sometimes in a matter of hours! So how does weather affect bouncy castle hire, and what safety measures do we take to ensure the safety of your kids?

Is bouncy castle hire safe in hot weather?

There’s an urban myth that bouncy castles can overheat and explode when they get too hot, but this is completely untrue. The blower keeps the air circulating around so the air inside your bouncy castle hire never gets too hot. That said, the surface can get hot in direct sunlight.

What precautions should I take?

We recommend that children wear socks when they are bouncing on hot days. It may be worth keeping some spare socks handy for anyone who turns up in sandals. Fortunately, most of our designs for bouncy castle hire in Essex have sewn-in covers that not only stop the castle from getting too hot, but also protect your kids from sunburn and heat exhaustion.

How can I keep my kids cool?

It’s important to keep kids hydrated when they are playing on hot days. It can get several degrees hotter inside your bouncy castle hire, out of the breeze, and all that bouncing and jumping about can make them even warmer. Make sure they take regular breaks to cool off in the shade and they have plenty to drink. A great way of cooling kids down is to add slush machine hire to your order, giving them a cold, quenching drink to refresh them, ready to do it all again!

Can I use a bouncy castle in the rain?

The sewn-in covers also work well at keeping light rain off your bouncy castle hire. This means that a brief, passing shower won’t spoil the fun of your bouncy castle hire, though you should take care to keep the interior dry to prevent slipping. If the rain gets heavier, we recommend that you close the castle until it stops, and then dry it thoroughly before you let the kids on again.

Is bouncy castle hire safe when it’s windy?

The Health and Safety Executive set rules for the maximum windspeed for bouncy castle hire. This means that if the wind is forecast to be over 24mph, even in gusts, then we cannot set up your inflatable. Remember, you can cancel or change your Essex bouncy castle hire booking with Monster right up to 8am on the day of hire with no charge or penalty, so you can wait to see what conditions are like on the day before you make your call. If we have to cancel your booking because of the weather, we will let you know as soon as possible.

Can I plan bouncy castle hire indoors?

With the great British weather so random and unpredictable, perhaps the safest thing to do is to hire a hall and hold your party indoors. You’ll find a huge choice of bouncy castle hire, and bounce and slide hire, with a low ceiling clearance of under ten feet, which means it will fit in most community centres, church halls and village halls.
