The difference between residential and commercial inflatables is a question new party rental business owners often ask. Residential inflatables are sold in retail stores such as Walmart and Target. Commercial inflatables are sold by manufacturers and distributors such as JumpOrange. It is easy to miss the differences between these inflatables. Here are a few reasons why party rental businesses prefer commercial inflatables.
Commercial inflatables are designed to handle heavier use. Companies such as JumpOrange use lead-free commercial grade PVC vinyl that is fire and puncture-resistant for their inflatables. This material is also easy to clean as it is more resistant to mold and mildew. As a result, this vinyl is 5 times stronger than the nylon material that residential inflatables use. This also means that residential inflatables have shorter lifespans with their lower resistance to mold, mildew, and repeated use. With proper care and maintenance, JumpOrange inflatables can last over seven years.
The extra parts and accessories for both inflatables come with slight differences. For instance, commercial inflatables use replaceable linings on high traffic areas such as the slide, stairs, and pool, which extends the lifespan of the inflatable. They also include metal stakes, powerful air blowers, and tarp. Compare this to residential units that offer no replacement linings and have a shorter lifespan as a result. They also tend to use plastic stakes, weaker air blowers, and no tarp.
Last but not least is the difference in product warranty length. Commercial inflatables have a longer lifespan, and thus include a longer warranty. For example, JumpOrange’s warranty covers up to 18 months on water-based features and 3 years on dry units. Most residential inflatable warranties only cover up to 6 months. Superior warranty policy grants party rental companies peace of mind.
