18. Do you hire out castles for parties indoors?
Our castles are very popular for indoor hires especially over winter. The indoor venue will need to be a minimum 10ft high and have mains power electric. We secure the indoor castles using anchor points and sandbags. The 15ft Monkey Bounce is ideal for indoor use.
19. What if its windy?
As we secure our inflatables to the Health and safety requirements, normal wind conditions are fine. However if they reach force 5 which is 24mph or 38kph then the inflatable should be unplugged and not used until the wind reduces below this level. An easy way to know that level of wind speed is that small branches in leaf begin to sway. Our team have anometers on their vans which can check for wind speed in these situations. It is also worth keeping an eye on the weather forecast, an upto date RSS linkto the BBC can be found on our 'Blog' page.
Castles4Kids reserve the right to cancel a booking if the hirer has supplied false or incorrect details in order to reserve an inflatable.
