BigAirBag Features: Internal Blowers

By 22nd April 2020December 30th, 2020No Comments

BigAirBag prides itself in constantly innovating and delivering products of the highest quality. Attention to detail is crucial to provide the safest airbags on the market. Features that you do not see on first sight but are essential for an airbag. Such as: an Internal Blower System

01 One feature for all models

The internal blower system is a feature we integrated with all our models. For most of them, it’s standard practice to produce them with this feature. The reason BigAirBag uses internal blower instead external blowers, is because we have been able to eliminate all possible negative impacts from an internal blower system such as a user hitting the blower after a jump (which can happen if a user slides of an airbag with external blower).

02 BigAirBag blower types

Different BigAirBag models require different type of blowers as well as the required amount of blowers. Here is an overview of our most used blowers.

Metal Blower

The silver fan made of high quality, galvanized steel and conforms to all safety standards. It is built into a compartment with foam protection to prevent it from breaking on firm surfaces and held into place with several straps. The compartment is accessed through one or two zippers (depending on the model). The Metal Blower is used in the Freestyle, Revolution, Landing, and the Comfort Adventure.

How exactly we position and use the Metal Blower differs per model:

Two separate blower for 2 individual chambers (impact and safety zone). Placed on each long side in the bottom corner provides a stable position and eliminates the risk of contact.
Used for a constantly pressured safety ring, so you won’t roll off the sides. Built internally on the bottom zone and connected via a operate tube to the safety ring at the top.
The number of blowers needed depends on the size of the BigAirBag and volume required. A safetyring, wedge or individual chambers run on their own individual blower(s) so that when pressure can be adjusted in detail and don’t affect unintentional chambers.
Comfort Adventure & Foam Pit:
Similar as the Landing, the amount of blowers required depends on the size of the BigAirBag. Depending on the height of the BigAirBag it rehires one blower per 40m2 / 130ft2 on average.

Axial Blower

The Axial blower is only used for the Revolution model because the Revolution has so much volume that it needs more air moving in. The Revolution requires one Axial fan for models up to 10 x 10 m / 32 x 32 ft. Bigger models require two Axial Blowers.

Axial Blowers are always placed inside and come with two foam blocks for support and protection. The foam blocks are shaped like a semi-circle and a full circle. The semi-circle block is for the Axial Blower to sit in and is placed inside the BigAirBag Revolution and is attached to the to bottom of the Revoltion using Velcro and straps. The full circle foam block sits on the outside of the Revolution, in front of the Axial Blower, to provide support and protect material from being sucked in.

Low-Noise Air Mover

The Low-Noise Air Mover is used for BigAirBags that require low levels of pressure and silent operations. Due to its larger shape its usually positional external onto a (harmonica) tube yielding 2700 m3 per hour. There are several reasons to choose for this blower as it eliminates some of the downsides of other blowers when placed externally:

Extremely quiet: Probably not surprising looking at the product name, but these blowers are extremely quiet. You can stand next to it and have a conversation without raising your voice. In fact: it is the quietest on the market!
Built to last: With a Polypropylene molded housing with moister and dust filter and it’s sealed motor, this one will last both indoor and outdoor for a long time.
Our final touch: External blowers have the risk of disconnecting from the blower tube. However we developed a tube with housing that eliminates the risk with a triple connecting system. Furthermore, you can connect the housing straight to the BigAirBag so it’s just outside but does not require a blower tube.

Benefits of an internal blower system

Through innovative production, smart positioning, and safe operational protocols, there are only benefits to an internal blower system.

  • Noise reduction: Up to 80% less
  • Supported: Can’t fall over
  • Damage free: With foam covers
  • No risk: Of disconnecting blower tubes
  • Access restricted: Users can’t reach them or trip
  • Out of sight: Gives your setup a clean look
  • Weather resistant: Electricity and water don’t match
  • Less space: No tubes sticking out
