Some of our fans can be used on several types of inflatables, where some can only be used on very specific type of inflatables (such as swimming pool inflatables). Here you can select the type of inflatable you have or the industry sector you are looking for and our site will display the most appropriate fans for your selected inflatable types.
Feel free to select as many (or as few) market sectors as you require and the website will display all of our relevant products to you.

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.
If you know the power of the blower you are looking for then please select it here and all products which match your selection will be displayed. The most common power outputs are 0.75hp (0.55kW), 1.50hp (1.10kW) and 2.00hp (1.50kW).
This option allows you to filter products available to you by your country’s electrical power supply frequency. To help you a little in the UK and Europe the frequency is 50hz and in the USA and Canada the frequency is 60hz. Please ensure you select the correct frequency as using a blower on an incorrect electrical supply may cause damage to the blower. If you need further guidance please see our country, voltage, plug and frequency guide here.
Here at Gibbons Fans we are often asked to advise on which voltage, frequency and plug type is correct for a certain country.
This table and plug key shows you the different options that we have available to you, at Gibbons Fans we can manufacture a bouncy castle blower to suit any worldwide voltage and frequency and can practically cater for every plug type too!
Please use this table as a guide to assist you in deciding on the correct blower electrical specification/ plug type.
Should your country be missing or alternatively you have a question relating to blower electrical specification or plug choice please do not hesitate to contact us.
Or alternatively please check the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) website for further details: www.iec.ch

I have tried many different blowers over the years and always end up back at Gibbons I have around 80 in my rental fleet and would not use any thing else. Although Gibbons are slightly more expensive the quality, service and piece of mind is worth the small additional cost.
