The data below compares our inflatable specifications to the requirements set down in the Australian Standard AS3533.1 – 1997 and AS 3533.4.1 – 2005
A larger value represents a higher standard/strength

As you can see from the comparison chart above, all our material inputs exceed what is required in the Australian Standard for Land and Water-Bourne inflatable devices. This gives you the peace of mind knowing that your Jumping Jack® inflatable is intrinsically safe and will easily pass registration requirements set down in states and territories that require this.
You can use the above chart to compare our inflatables to others on offer in the market.
In addition to the above testing our inflatable designs have been verified and certified by professional engineers and have also been design registered with the State regulator when required. Your inflatable will be supplied with a compliant Australian standard logbook which has been compiled by a professional engineer and filled out by Jay A Maxwell himself.
Our components have also been tested and certified by a NATA and ISO accredited laboratory located in Australia.
The new Safe Work Australia regulations with regard to design verification, design registration and plant registration which includes all class 2 and above inflatable amusement devices came into effect on the 1st of January 2012.
Class 1 devices and devices with a platform height under 3 metres are exempt from the new registration requirements however if your inflatable has a platform height when measured from the supporting surface of 3 metres or higher and is operated via a constant (continuous) air flow and patrons interact with it via their own motion (that is, they play on it) then that inflatable will require design verification, design registration and item registration.
Please be aware that some states and territories (including Victoria and WA) have not passed the legislation required to enforce the new regulations and some states including NSW have deferred some aspects including, but not limited to, design registration of devices designed prior to 2012.
If you own/operate a device that has a platform height of 3 metres or greater which was designed prior to 2012 it will need to be verified and design registered with the regulator from the 1st of January 2018. (Applies to NSW)
Please contact Jay for further information on your State or Territories current status.
