Power supply

Power Supply

At Gibbons Fans we offer two different types of electrical power supply, AC or DC. Most of our products are powered by AC fans, however we do have a small range of DC products.

AC (ALTERNATING CURRENT):

This is standard mains power that you would get from any mains socket. The majority of our products are powered by AC, especially our larger, more powerful products.

Gibbons Fans currently supplies a range of fans which can utilise AC power of 100V-240V 50-60Hz so we can cater for all worldwide voltages and frequencies.

If you are unsure of which power source is correct for your location please read our Electrical Supply Table, which will assist you in making the correct choice.

DC (DIRECT CURRENT):

This is the power generally provided by batteries. Gibbons Fans has a small selection of DC powered products suited for use on smaller inflatable structures and promotional items.

Gibbons can supply DC fans in both 12VDC and 24VDC outputs so please ensure you choose the correct product for your battery source or DC power supply.

Casing Type

WHICH CASING TYPE ARE YOU LOOKING FOR?

Here at Gibbons Fans we offer two types of casing on our products, our plastic range and our metal range.

Most customers have a preference to use either plastic or metal in their blower inventory.

Plastic:

Our plastic is seen to be our premium product, benefiting from up to date design features which promote both operator and child safety. Our plastic fan is deemed to the benchmark in premium, high quality inflatable blower design.

If you are looking for the best possible premium blower, made with the highest quality components and packed full of innovation then the Gibbons Fans plastic range of bouncy castle blowers is the range for you.

Metal:

Our tried and tested metal range offers reliability and low cost. However, the innovations developed for our plastic range will not be added to the metal range.

If you are looking for a budget, proven and reliable product then you should look at our metal range.

Inflatable size

Inflatable Size

At Gibbons Fans we have a large range of bouncy castle fans to suit all sizes of inflatables. By selecting your inflatable size you will be able to filter our range of products to only show those products which are suitable for use on your inflatable.

We have three filters as follows:

INFLATABLES UP TO 4M X 4M (12FT X 12FT):

Select this option for all inflatables less than 4M x 4M (12ft x 12ft). This is the most common size of inflatable used in back garden rentals and hires. The usual fan size you would use on this size of inflatable is a 0.75hp or 0.55kW.

INFLATABLES UP TO 8M X 8M (24FT X 24FT):

Select this option for all inflatables that are larger than 4M x 4M (12ft x 12ft) but less than 8M x 8M (24ft x 24ft), this would cover the majority of inflatables apart from the very largest units. The usual fan size you would use on this size of inflatable is a 1.50hp or 1.10kW.

INFLATABLES OVER 8M X 8M (24FT X 24FT):

Select this option for all inflatables that are larger than 8M x 8M (24ft x 24ft). This choice should be made for the very largest inflatables for example large obstacle courses or slides. The usual fan size you would use on this size of inflatable is a 2.00hp or 1.50kW.

NB: Please note that these filters are for information only and are only supposed to act as a guide. They do not account for height or for variations in inflatable design. The responsibility of the final fan choice always remains with the customer.
