Please remember that when booking for large events the generator can be a key part of the whole function. Whilst our generators are serviced regularly and well maintained, Generators are just as likely to cause power issues as a standard 240volt power supply power cut for example.

The most common generator failure is due to allowing the generator to run out of fuel and not being able to start it again, please ensure all generators are topped up at regular intervals throughout the event.

As such, we strongly advise to have back up power on site. Back up generators can be hired from us at a drastically reduced rate and this is strongly advised, please contact us for details.

We are very particular when it comes to health and safety, however as a company we follow the guidance set out by the HSE as standard. Not private company policies which can often be clouded.

Where the weather is particularly hot during summer months and heat waves for example, The fabric of castles and mats gets very, very hot in the sun.

Make sure the children are wearing socks so as not to burn the soles of their feet. Have a shade erected or position the inflatable so the sun is not shining directly into the castle. Remember our erectors will not know your hot spots during the intended hire period so please let them know on delivery and they will be happy to help.
Do not be tempted to dowse the inflatable in water as this will cool the castle very temporarily but then cause the rays to be magnified under the sun’s rays.


If the inflatable does get too hot, Please ensure no one uses the inflatable to reduce the risk of burns to children’s skin. Please remember to use care and caution at all times in hot weather and call for guidance if required.
Please do not let children use the inflatable if weather is too hot.

The law states that an inflatable must be sited using 165kg of anchorage per anchor point, ie, 7 bags on sand per anchor with a minimum of 6 anchors (Thats 42 sandbags and over 1 ton) and as such we opt to use the raw bolt method.

13.1: REMEMBER: Although most of the entertainment on our website does not require our staff members, they still do require adult supervision at all times, most inflatable items require 2 members of staff at all times. This does not have to be one of our staff members but please ensure a supervisor is available at all time for maximum safety & maximum fun.

13.2: Supervision; All inflatables must be supervised by at least 2 responsible adults at all time. Please ensure these adults have adequate insurance in place and suitable experience. Should you not wish to take the risk, we can provide suitable insured staff on request.

Whilst we do have adult units, these units still attract a 12 stone weight limit for maximum efficiency and safety.

13.3: DISCLAIMER: Whilst we endeavour to deliver all of our entertainment on time and in good condition, On extremely rare occasion’s things don’t always go as planned due to circumstances out of control.

13.4 Other notes; As you will be aware FunBounce offer an overnight hire service which sometimes requires us to collect items from the previous hire just before delivering it to your venue. In extreme cases we sometimes find that the entertainment is wet or dirty and may have to be wiped over and/or dried out once we reach your venue so please ensure you have allowed plenty of time for us to carry out these duties before your party starts. We usually recommend 2hrs just in case.

In addition to this we very occasionally find that the entertainment has been damaged and unreported by the previous hirer and as such we may have to (without warning) substitute your entertainment for something similar to ensure that we don’t let you down on the day.

Notwithstanding the above, our staff will work tirelessly until the equipment is satisfactory and endeavour to keep you updated. Should you still not find the equipment to be satisfactory, you still have the right to refuse delivery on the day r request a substitution, however our drivers keep a very tight schedule and all requests must be made prior to the driver leaving site.

Also please note: ALL delivery and collection times are approximate, so again, please ensure you allow plenty of time before your party start & finish time (We usually recommend 2hrs just in case.)
