Indigo Inflatables are an accredited Testing Company for Inflatable Play Equipment such as Bouncy Castles, Slides, Obstacle Courses Disco Domes etc. under the PIPA SchemeAccording to the Health and Safety at work act, BS EN 14960:2006 and EIS7 an Inflatable that is used for play such as a bouncy castle needs to be tested annually by a competent person. H.S.E. have set up and adopted the PIPA scheme as ‘best practice’ for the industry.
PIPA requires bouncy castles and inflatable slides to be inspected to a recognised standard prior to sale and on an annual basis thereafter to ensure they conform to the relevant standards and are safe to use effectively an ‘MOT’ for Inflatables.
The scheme is designed to cover Inflatables sold and hired for commercial use and not those inflatable play items sold as toys through retail outlets which are governed by separate legislation. Importantly, PIPA has the full backing of the Health & Safety Executive (H.S.E.), who have been consulted at every stage of the scheme’s development and who have embraced it as a means of eradicating poorly designed or badly worn equipment that can significantly increase the risk of injury to users. Central to the scheme is a tagging system and certificate.
