Inflatable Options

The difference between temporary inflatable structures using the air flow, the sealed air beam and the binary flow system.

inflatable Construction

Inflatables have been used as temporary structures for decades, from their early use as ammunition stores in wars to covering sports stadiums the world over.

As designers, producers and suppliers of high quality inflatable temporary structures for events and space projects, we integrate three styles of inflatable design and manufacture; Air Flow, Sealed Air Beam and Binary Flow.

Airflow Explained

The original method of inflatable structure design and production. The structure is inflated with a constant supply of air through integral fans. The air is drawn from the structure exterior and is expelled into the air cavity of the structure. The structure is designed to leak on the interior and exterior. Constant power is required.

Sealed Airbeam

A common method used in inflatable product design such as inflatable furniture and toys. Optix Sealed Air Beam structures are designed and produced using an integral air tube frame system that is heat welded together. This framework is the base for the cover which includes the roof and walling system. The structure can be inflated by hand or electrical pump. These structures measure up to 8 metres in size.

Binary explained

The Binary Flow inflatable structure method combines both the Air Flow and the Sealed Air Beam System.

The addition of the Sealed Air Beams increase the wind load of the structure and for extra structural safety, add a temporary fail safe in the event of loss of power.

Your Technology

Choosing the right structure technology for your own temporary space project has many factors that need to be considered.
