Inflatable Temporary Structures: Everything You Need To Know!

Updated: Sep 5

Inflatable temporary structures aren’t a new concept. People across the world have been using it for decades, with early usage going back to storing ammunition during the war. But the demand for them has spiked recently because of several changes that we will be outlining in this article.


But first, let’s address the elephant in the room: What are inflatable temporary structures?


What are Inflatable Temporary Structures?

When we think of the word ‘inflatable’, the first thing that comes to our mind is often balloons, party domes, or children’s pods (indoor tents). But that’s just the tip of the iceberg.


Thanks to the advancements in technology, inflatable temporary structures today are available in a variety of different sizes and complicated structures; these are extremely portable, and reliable. These structures can be used in an exhibition, in emergency medical care centres, or while hosting a large convention.


The possibilities with inflatable temporary structures are quite literally, limitless.


Now that we understand the basics, let’s try to shed some light on the reasons that lead to the sudden rise of these ephemeral structures in recent times.


Inflatable Temporary Structures- What sets them apart?

Inflatable structures, or as we like to quote them, ephemeral structures, are gaining relevance in different markets across the world for various reasons, including,


  • Easy Set-Up

These structures can be brought in and set up within a few hours. At Optix Structures, we even provide powerful pumps that can catalyse the setup process.


  • Nominal Maintenance

Unlike traditional facility structures, inflatable structures have nominal maintenance. What more? The repairs are often easy and inexpensive.


  • Adaptability

Inflatable temporary structures are extremely versatile and adaptable. Their overpressure determines their load capacity. The higher the pressure, the higher the capacity.


However, it’s critical to mention that these structures are often inadequate in environments with high external loads; in layman's terms, these structures can’t be used in places with bad weather and high winds.


With that out of the way, let’s highlight the different types of inflatable temporary structures you can get at Optix Structures.
