Operating a ride business isn’t easy. In most parts of the country, weather and passenger rescheduling are challenging enough, so the equipment you choose must be reliable and ready to fly when you are.
Should you ever need service, the manufacturer must be dependable and have a large inventory of parts and fabric so you’re never left waiting when time is of the essence.
At Lindstrand, we believe you should be able to keep your focus on your business and feel secure that your equipment will go the distance. Our 24 and 28 gore construction envelopes offer the perfect platform for corporate fleet branding. Their state-of-the-art design also provides for optimum stress distribution, an important safety consideration.
