Official TBE WTBEA Member.
The TBE WTBEA was founded in 2015 due to a lack of regulation in the inflatable industry.
There have been several schemes in place over the years to make hirers far safer & more responsible, however the various schemes have been flaunted due to a major lack of enforcement, which has lead to some members hiring out toy inflatables, untested equipment and inflatables that fall short of the required en14960 standard. Other members have been found to be operating without public liability insurance..
The BCE WTBEA is an organisation of well established hire professionals who meet regularly to discuss urgent and pressing industry issues along with health and safety & en14960 related regulations. This is the most knowledgeable organisation to be a part of and all members are checked regularly to make sure there castles are of an acceptable hire standard, insured, safety tested & following best practices within the industry.
The group is made up of over 1,600 professional hirers with thousands of years of combined experience, Inflatable manufacturers & inflatable testers, all with one purpose in mind. Cleaning up the industry and raising the standard of inflatable hire throughout the UK.
The joining criteria is VERY strict with many falling short of the entry requirements. The BCE WTBEA are committed to ejecting anyone falling short of the requirements with a zero tolerance policy in force. The criteria for continued membership is as listed below;
- Must have Public Liability Insurance
