However, you might wonder, what exactly is an inflatable entrance tunnel?
What is an Inflatable Entrance Tunnel?
Inflatable entrance tunnels are large walk-through tubes that connect two locations; for instance, a field and the entrance to an event. They allow enough light for people to see while they’re inside the tube, and they’re large enough that anyone can fit through them without feeling cramped.
In short, inflatable entrance tunnels provide people with an unusual and fun way to get from one place to another.
They’re also a great way to ensure everyone knows who your company is through custom branding. At MVP Visuals, we use the latest technology to print your team and affiliate's logo and colors on the tunnels.
Our tunnels are very easy to assemble and disassemble. Simply:
- Clean the site where you plan to assemble the tunnel.
- Tightly attach the blower to the tunnel, ensuring that all the openings and zippers are closed.
- Allow the tunnel to inflate.
- Secure it on the ground using ropes and a weight source.
Disassembling your inflatable is as simple as turning off the blower and opening all the zippers to allow air to escape.
Pro tip: Don’t forget to fold your inflatable tunnel so it can fit into its bag.
You can order any of our standard inflatables, branded specifically to your company through colors and logos, or let us help you with a completely new idea. There are no limits to your creativity with custom inflatable entrance tunnels.
Expert Tip: An inflatable entrance tunnel is a fun and memorable way for schools, teams, clubs, and organizations to make a grand entrance at their next event.
How is an Inflatable Entrance Tunnel Made?
Our first step in making custom inflatable entrance tunnels starts with you requesting a quote of cost and telling us what you’re looking for. A personalized quote will usually be available for you within 1 business day.
Our artisans will then create a 2D mockup and 3D model rendition of your custom inflatable entrance tunnel for your approval. We'll make sure your specific brand colors and logo placement will be exactly to your specifications.
With the 3D model, we can also visualize exactly how the air will flow through your custom inflatable entrance tunnel, so it doesn’t become saggy or puffy.
Once you’re happy with the design, we print each piece of your inflatable entrance tunnel with state-of-the-art dye sublimation and heat transfer printing, followed by hand sewing to put the pieces together.
The last step involves testing your inflatable entrance tunnel to ensure proper airflow and print output. Every step of this process is subject to rigorous quality control.
Production takes between 10 to 20 business days, depending on the size and complexity of your design.
We consider the material of your inflatable entrance tunnel crucial. Usually, an inflatable entrance tunnel is made of PVC plastic or other synthetic materials. But this may slightly vary with custom inflatable entrance tunnel vendors across the board.
Here at MVP Visuals, we offer heavy-duty PVC material: an affordable, durable, and non-corrosive material.
This means sunlight cannot decompose the material, and the mechanical properties involved will not be affected.
PVC can’t be destroyed by either water or air. This makes it a suitable material for all kinds of indoor and outdoor applications.
At MVP Visuals, we take our customers' health seriously. That’s why we comply with the highest standards of health and safety and exceed international regulations.
We use state-of-the-art, heavy-duty PVC that is BPA-free, phthalate-free, and lead-free.
