Inflatable Buildings and Structures


New for 2020 (but on hold until the end of Covid 19) Splash entered the Inflatable Buildings and Structures Service where we offer a series of Australian and European Inflatable concepts. 


Splash Air Arch Inflatables is a service for sourcing and developing temporary and semi-permanent spaces such as Industrial Shade Shelters; Sports and Entertainment Pavilions; Public Event Shade Structures; Floating Roofs; Inflatable Igloos for Cabins and Offices; plus other industrial or public spaces.


The difference between Euro Pavilions and Air Arches is inflation management.


Euro Inflatable Pavilions


Splash Air Europ Inflatable Pavilion


Euro Inflatable Pavilions are aerostats (big balloons) i.e., filled constantly with air (no gas) using electrical inflation systems.   Entry and Exit is via space hatches, revolving doors or vertical blinds that hold air inside structure.  These massive types of structures have been popular in Europe for some decades, particularly as sports pavilions.


Cost effective electricity can be gained through portable solar and wind turbine generators.

Inflatable Air Arches


Air Arch Inflatable Pavilions


Inflatable Air Arches (external view at top of page) Pavilions and Floating Roofs are supported by air tubes filled with air (and occasionally helium), which is retained and locked within the structure, topping up as necessary. 


Again, cost effective and sustainable electricity can be sourced through portable solar and wind turbine generators. 


Industrial Strength Air Arches tubes are stabilized by a tensile canopy and/or straps plus a clever internal valve system that keeps structure tight and prevents early deflation (even if damaged). Extra stabilizing is supplied by steel uprights for high wind sites. 


Engineering of Air Arches and Roofs is the brain child of Aerostat Aviation Engineers.
