Tank hire includes inflation regulator. Contact our office for more information.
Balloons Inflation and Floating Times
– The recommended number of balloons obtained from any gas cylinder is based on using good quality balloons 26 – 28cm in diameter. If the balloons are larger than this, it will reduce the number of balloons obtained from each cylinder.
– Helium quality latex balloons will last approximately 12 hours however extreme temperatures will reduce float time.
– Foil balloons will last an estimated 7 – 10 days – must be 40-45cm or larger to float.
Helium Balloon Safety
WARNING Do not inhale helium. Inhaling balloon gas can cause death.
– The inhalation of helium cuts off a person’s supply of oxygen and can cause dizziness, unconsciousness, an embolism and ultimately death!
– Helium is a non-flammable gas. The gas is inert (doesn’t react to anything), it’s non-toxic, colourless, odourless and tasteless.
– We always recommend using helium gas in a well ventilated area to reduce the danger of asphyxiation.
– Supervision amongst children is encouraged at all times.
Transportation and Storage of Cylinders
– Transport securely and upright without regulator attached. (1 cylinder per enclosed vehicle).
– Store securely and upright in a dry safe place
– When cylinder is not in use turn cylinder valve to closed and relieve the pressure on the regulator by tilting the nozzle up or down.
– CQ Party Hire strongly discourages the intentional release of all balloons into the air when filled with helium or compressed air.
– Please ensure they are tightly secured to a weight, popped and disposed of properly.
