We can manufacture the heavy lift blimps with custom attachment points designed to meet your payload specifications. We also have different tail materials and designs depending on your requirements. So how do you decide which payload blimp will work for you? Just tell us your payload weight and gust load (wind amount) and we'll help you figure out the details to design the blimp properly.

Construction of the payload blimps is with a polyurethane bladder on the inside and a ripstop nylon skin on the outside. This 2-layer construction allows for durability. UV protection and ease of repair. Some companies use urethane-coated Nylon which cannot be repaired in the field. The Southern Balloon works design is similar to the construction of the MetLife blimp.  Should the polyurethane bladder tear, it can easily be replaced without harming your investment in the nylon skin.

Polyurethane versus PVC

Compared to alternatives our products are more cost-effective. A major reason is that we use a better-performing material called Polyurethane, which is designed to hold the Helium molecule. Cheaper products made of PVC or urethane-coated nylon lose helium quickly - which increases your costs. That means a cheap product costs more in the long term.
