Equipment Location:
It is the hirers responsibility to check the space required for their chosen inflatable and equipment including the ceiling height. All asset sizes can be found in the description for each inflatable on our website www.tinytownsoftplay.co.uk. On delivery, if the inflatable will not fit in the space provided the hirer will still be charged the total outstanding amount of the hire. We cannot be held responsible if the inflatable does not fit.

Bouncy castles will not be set up on concrete, decking, astro turf, gravel or sand due to health and safety.

The European standard 4.2.1 Anchorage:
The inflatable shall be provided with an anchorage and/or ballast system and any necessary accessories enabling the inflatable to be securely fixed to the ground. Each inflatable shall have at least six anchorage points.

The maximum wind- speed in which inflatables shall be used outdoors is 38 km/h (Force 5 on the Beaufort Scale); see Annex B. (Max gust speeds of 24mph) Please note that if wind speeds for the day are predicted at (for example) 15mph but gusts are predicted at 30mph, we will not be able to set the inflatable up outside as it is the gusts that can lift the inflatable into the air despite correct anchorage.

When used outdoors, the inflatable shall be secured to the ground, preferably with ground stakes where the ground is suitable. Each anchorage point on the inflatable and all of the components of the anchorage and/or ballast system, e.g. ropes, webbing's, metal attachments, stakes, weights, shall withstand a force of 1 600 N.

The direction of the exerted force shall be at an angle to the ground of 30° to 45°. Ground stakes shall incline away from the direction of the exerted force. Ground stakes shall be a minimum of 380 mm in length and a minimum of 16 mm in diameter and their tops shall be rounded. The system shall expose no more than 25 mm of the stake above ground level. Tiny town soft play will not be held responsible for any damage caused whilst anchoring the inflatable.

When the inflatable is used indoors, the anchorage and/or ballast system should be used, when necessary, to maintain stability.

Although the soft play equipment and balls from the ball pool are cleaned regularly, it is recommended that supervising adults discourage children from placing balls in their mouths for hygiene purposes.

Diving and jumping into the ball pool is not allowed. Climbing, hanging or sitting on the walls of the inflatables is dangerous and must not be allowed at any time. It may also cause damage to the inflatable. Bouncing/jumping on the front step of the inflatable is not allowed under any circumstances. The step is there to aid users in getting on or off the inflatable only and is not a jumping area. Adults must not sit on the soft play shapes as this causes them to lose their shape.

It is responsibility of the hirer to find a suitable site, i.e. flat, clean / hygienic area for the equipment set up. We can refuse to set up in a location that we deem to not be clean or suitable.

Equipment must be returned in the same condition as it was delivered in. It is the responsibility of the hirer to ensure that once set up, due care and attention is given to avoid damage to any of the hired equipment. Any damage to soft play equipment will be chargeable at an appropriate amount, i.e. cost of repair or replacement.

Equipment MUST NOT be moved once set up except for ball collection. All equipment should only be dismantled by ourselves. Please do not attempt to pack away except for the ball pool balls.

The controls on the speaker of the disco dome must not be altered. The speaker including volume can be controlled from your device only. For overnight hires, the disco dome must be left inflated due to the light and speaker inside.

Fun food machinery must be operated by adults only. The machines are very heavy and can become very hot and must be kept out of reach of children. Fun food machinery must be handled with care. Any damage to any of the machines will result in a charge i.e. cost of replacement or repair. Foreign objects are not to be put into any of the machinery i.e. spoons in the bowl of the slush machine.
