Inflatable Structures at Outdoor Events
Skyline WindScape® Exhibit System passed the outdoor test at two triathlons in the Minneapolis area.
Four inflatable structures – a 16-foot tower to welcome 1,800 young triathletes, two 16-foot towers at the finish line, and a backwall for presentations – performed well at the MiracleKids Triathlons.
Skyline designed a customized tethering system to hold the modular components firmly in position. However, Brian Mastel, Triathlon Race Director for the Pinky Swear Foundation was more impressed with other features.
Most races use truss frameworks wrapped with vinyl banners. “And no matter how much time you spend zip-tying, the truss shows through,” Mastel says.
In contrast, WindScape features fabric graphics tailored to the structure. “The graphics were stunning,” Mastel says. “I was amazed at how spectacular they looked. The color popped out, and seeing no structure behind it gives the image a much different look.”
Before and after the competitions, young racers and their families lined up for photos at the finish line. “We left the towers up to the end of clean-up so everyone could get pictures with the them,” Mastel says.
While it may take eight people to erect a finish line with a truss system, Mastel prefers WindScape’s labor-saving advantages. With the touch of a button on the included inflator, a 10-foot backwall goes from case to event ready in less than seven minutes. WindScape components connect with no tools, weigh less than other displays, and are ultra-compact to transport.
“The towers I did by myself,” Mastel says. “Being able to inflate them in 10 minutes was great. I liked how easy it was to put up and take down. Speed and ease of use were a bonus to how they looked.”
