Helium gas is the only gas that can be safely used for flying your Giant balloon or Blimp because it is non-flammable and lighter than air.
Filling Giant Advertising Balloons with Helium allows them to float up in the sky.
Helium Gas is available from most gas outlets. Afrox sell a product called Party gas number 4; it is less expensive than Pure Helium used for cooling processes in specialized instrumentation and machinery.
Helium cylinders are heavy so it is best to have your gas supplier deliver the helium to your site.
Most gas company’s charge a monthly rental on the cylinder so check how much they charge as leaving empty cylinders on site can be costly.
Read your instructions supplied with your giant Blimp or Advertising balloon – Before you start filling it with Helium and make sure you understand the flying limitations of your balloon.
