Huge Balloons For Events
Parades, public celebrations, carnivals, fairs and birthday parties are some of the primary events where huge balloons are used as a part of the festivities. Giant balloons are not only used for festive occasions they’re also used to advertise businesses, to promote motion pictures and for certain holidays such as Thanksgiving and the 4th of July.
Giant balloons can be designed in a number of ways and they’re also manufactured to look like cartoon characters and heroic figures. Animals, appliances, electronic devices and other everyday items can all be created in the form of a large balloon. Basic sphere shaped balloons are primarily used for advertising and other shapes might include squares or spheres. Advance computer technology also allows balloon manufacturer to create any type of design that a customer can imagine. Many of the larger sized balloons are filled with helium and in some cases hot air in order to make them float. Large helium filled parade floats must be anchored with some type of fastener in order to keep them from floating away.
Cold-air is also used for large inflatable balloons that will remain on the ground and not in the air. Many large sized balloons are also created to withstand the weather and ripping apart. Most of the materials that are used to create large helium filled balloons made out of durable nylon and plastic materials. These materials have to be light enough to allow the inflatable to float. Hot-air balloons that are used for advertising typically have propane tanks that shoot flames into a gas bag which is designed to lift the balloon into the atmosphere once the air is heated. Coatings such as silicone and polyurethane are used to make the balloon air resistant. Huge balloons also come in a variety of sizes but most are not larger than 70 feet tall. Many large sized balloons are rented and when they’re done serving their purpose they can be deflated and stored away to be used at a future date.
