HOW MUCH WIND CAN THE BALLOON HANDLE
AND  IN WHAT CLIMATES ?

 BALLOON on Wheels advertising balloons are designed to always handle winds in the 30+ MPH range. The balloon will whip around, however; there should not be any damage to the balloon fabric. The outriggers are designed to bend in the event of high gusts. We have had reports of winds exceeding 55 MPH. Two of the outriggers bent and were easily straightened. Instruct them to deflate the balloon prior to extreme weather. The balloon is designed to be used year-round in all of the climates of the U.S.; including the cold winter months in the North and the stormy-rainy months in the South, and the intense sun in the Southeast. However, if you are expecting severe weather, you may want to have your customer deflate the balloon and place the transport cover over it until the severe weather passes.

WHAT IS THE LIFE EXPECTANCY OF THE ADVERTISING BALLOON? 

The ultimate life expectancy of the fabric portion of the balloon is three to five years depending on your geographical location. The deep south and southwest

are more vulnerable to the extreme sun's uv. The operating and transport system’s life expectancy extend up to and beyond ten years with minimal maintenance and repairs. However, a number of factors can affect the life expectancy. This is the reason it is very important to follow the CARE TIPS GUIDE.

                        WHAT ARE THE TEN MOST COMMON Advertising Balloons CARE TIPS?

1) Never store the balloon damp or wet. 2) Clean the balloon fabric with a mild dishwashing detergent or a car wash/wax liquid which dilutes with up to two gallons of water. Do not use a harsh detergent or degreaser WHICH may affect the UV coating and also the finish. Exception: Use comet with CHLORINE SUBSTITUTE (Chlorinal®) to remove mildew spots. NOTE: DO NOT MACHINE WASH.  Regular application of a vinyl treatment product such as Sun-of- a-gun® is recommended for the top portion of the balloon.3) Occasionally remove the light bulb and spray the socket with a non-flammable lubricant. This helps keep the contacts corrosion free.4) Always set up the balloon with all of the stabilizer / leveling jacks extended so the balloon is level and most of the weight is off of the tires. 5) chock both tires during set up.6) Cover the photo eye with tape or rotate the eye downward during parades or if the unit is set up under street lights, bright lights or signs7) Remove the tongue and/or lock the front hitch with a pad lock. In addition, run a chain through one of the wheels and secure with a pad lock.8) Use heavy duty cord covers to protect extension cords that extend over sidewalks and driveways. They are made in five foot strips and can be purchased at electrical supply stores.9) The transport cover is designed to protect the balloon during transport. Do not use the cover as a method of protection for storage Unless it is also covered with a vinyl tarp or under a protected cover, such as a carport.10) The four outriggers with ropes that swing outward from the transport unit are designed to bend in high winds (30+ MPH). This protects the balloon from tearing. If THE OUTRIGGERS BEND, SIMPLY STRAIGHTEN them BY BENDING THEM back using downward force with THE WEIGHT OF YOUR BODY THROUGH YOUR ARMS.

4. 

HOW MUCH POWER DOES THE ADVERTISING BALLOON SYSTEM USE?

The balloon is designed to plug into a standard household 110v/15 amp plug. The balloon blower

motor only uses 3 amps and the lighting system only uses 4 amps. The lighting system has an automatic on/off sensor which turns the light on at dusk /off at dawn.
