Duct Balloon®

   Inflatable Isolation Barriers - Since 1998

Many of our customers have asked if a Duct Balloon needs to be hoisted into position prior to inflating them. While hoisting them into position may help expedite the installation process, most can be maneuvered into place during inflation by using the grab handles. If the balloon becomes wedged into an undesirable position during the installation process, it can be easily repositioned without fully deflating it. This can be accomplished by turning off the blower for a few seconds. As the balloon starts to soften, it can then be moved into the desired position. Once it’s relocated correctly, turn the blower back on to secure it in place.   

All Duct Balloons are supplied with a 120V or 240V high pressure blower. Most duct balloons will right themselves upward with some assistance by the installers during inflation. All Duct Balloons are furnished with anchor rings sewn into the corners that can be used as an attachment point to raise them into position. Typically, only a very tall Duct Balloon that is over 20’ (6.09m) in height may be required to be hoisted in place prior to inflation.


This two minute video shows how easily a 10’ (3.04m) wide x 19’ (5.79m) high Duct Balloon can be set on the floor and be guided upwards until it reaches full inflation. All Duct Balloons are provided with one or two deflation zippers which provide a quick way to deflate them so they can be quickly removed from the duct work.
