Cleaning / Repairing / Preventive Maintenance

How can BUILDAIR structures be cleaned?

Just normal cleaning, with water and non-aggressive cleaning product (BUILDAIR can recommend some specific ones).

In the event that tubes become torn or punctured, can they be repaired on site?

Yes, with the repair kit (textile + adhesive system for textile patches). Also to be said that for small punctures or damages, there is no urgency to perform the repair: the air blown by the inflation motor will automatically increase (as mandated by the Automatic Control System), to compensate the pressure loss due to the small puncture or damage.

Do the tubes need to be removed from the structure to be repaired?

There is no need to remove the tubes for small-medium damages, as the patches can be applied without removing the tube from the rest of the structure.

 

If the damage is large (several meters long torn), it can be necessary to remove the tube from the rest of the structure, in order to repair it.

What tooling or equipment are required for such repairs?

Simple tooling, plus textile patch and adhesive, all of them supplied by BUILDAIR. The User Manual shall include a detailed and complete description of the repair procedure.

Can these repair works be undertaken by the end-user? Any training required?

The answer is yes. If the damage is not very large, these repair works can be performed by the end-user, after receiving proper training by BUILDAIR (this training can take place during the 1st set-up of BUILDAIR structure).

Is there any planned periodic inspection of BUILDAIR structure by BUILDAIR staff, or is this necessary?

There’s a specific Maintenance Plan to be carried out, with ordinary daily inspections (to be performed by end-user), ordinary monthly inspections (to be performed by Buildair or the end-user, if properly trained), ordinary annual inspections (to be performed by Buildair) and extraordinary inspections (if something unexpected happens: extremely high winds, big torns or punctures, etc.).
