Tethered Blimps and Custom Inflatables
Tethered Blimps and Custom Inflatables
Tethered Blimps are used for advertising a brand, product or promotion. Although we have standard size blimps, we can custom make almost any size blimp or airship to suit a specific requirment. We also operate the blimps that we make, so we understand how to build you a product that will work best for you.
Our standard sizes are depicted above.
When it comes to purchasing a blimp the following questions should be considered.
What size blimp do I think I would like? As the blimps become larger, there volume will increase significantly. The larger blimps are very difficult to store and more expensive to inflate. Larger blimps will also have greater loads making them more difficult to raise and lower.
What are the logistical Considerations with a blimp? Cost of operating? How will I tether the blimp? Do you have specific lift requirements for scientific equipment?
What colors would I like? And what graphics will be best readable by my clientele?
We would welcome any questions you might have, and do our best to assist with some options to the above questions.
The blimps are made in either 3 standard colours (red/white/blue) or non-standard colours orange, green, light-blue and yellow, or can be custom painted to a specific PMS.
We can create a series of computer generated models of your logo’s on blimps, spheres or custom inflatables. If you would like view how your end product might look, be sure to send us your logo when you CONTACT US.
