Staying Afloat with Inflatable Rafts / Water Sports Fabric
Water parks have become a huge part of summer entertainment growing in numbers over the last 15 years. It’s amazing how some of these parks have grown in park size by adding many new water rides and colorful themes to attract more people. Did you know there are over 1,300 water parks that are in operation in the U.S. attracting over 85 million people each year?
Most of the parks feature water amusements such as floating rivers, water slides and water waves where they require the use of inflatable rafts. This is where the need for durable material is required for these rafts to handle the abuse they will take being used over and over each day.
Waterpark rafts come in all sizes and configurations depending on the ride. A raft may only need to accommodate one person or it may accommodate an entire group of 5 or 6 people.
There are many specifics that need to be taken into consideration to use the correct vinyl. For example, the top coat is important allowing for comfort when the rider’s skin is in contact with the material. Also, having material that will provide a secure weld without the issue of the seams coming undone is critical. Of course, the material itself must be strong that will provide long-term wear and durability.
Value Vinyls offers an extraordinary line of vinyl products that can handle the durable requirements and daily abuse these rafts will take. One of our primary products is StayFloat 80, a premium coated fabric that will hold air and perform exceptionally well under excessive water use.

Inflatable Rafts are used for many other outdoor water sports activities, such as river or lake use that may require an even tougher more rugged material. Value Vinyls can handle your needs.
