Aflex1Nelson-based Aflex Technology transformed Kaiteriteri Beach on Saturday 28th November into a unique inflatable aquatic playground. A fun day for Aflex staff, their family and friends, the company also welcomed beachgoers on the day to join in and play. The inflatable waterpark, measuring an impressive 45 metres long and made up of 18 heavy-duty PVC modules, attracted the young and the young-at-heart alike, providing plenty of fun and challenge for all ages.
100% New Zealand owned and operated, Aflex Technology designs and manufactures inflatable products using flexible fabric technology and exports worldwide to more than 15 countries. Market leaders in the commercial pool inflatable category, the company saw an opportunity to diversify into open water inflatables, known as their 'Aqua Adventure' series. Aflex waterparks around the world include a custom Cartoon Network waterpark in the Bahamas, a waterpark in the UK and another custom-designed waterpark currently being shipped to Dubai. The modular design and unique connecting sleeves of the Aqua Adventure series enables endless configuration possibilities to cater to many locations, budgets and other specific requirements.
Saturday was an opportunity for the Aflex team to enjoy their products out on the water, which are always inflated for testing at their Haven Road factory, but not very often does the whole team have the chance to experience first-hand all of the modules configured into a functional waterpark. Despite the waterpark being set up and packed down in a day at Kaiteriteri, the durable Aqua Adventure products are designed to be anchored in a lagoon, lake, or beachfront for months at a time.
With water safety being of the company's upmost importance, the Nelson Surf Lifesaving Club joined Aflex for the day out on the water ensuring all users were having fun and keeping safe.
The company is no stranger to land-based inflatables, too. In July this year, a 600 metre long inflatable slide designed and manufactured by Aflex for charity Live More Awesome, was verified by Guinness World Records as the world's longest inflatable waterslide, and was featured in a full-length episode of Travel Channel's Xtreme Waterparks series.
