How Our Inflation System Works (Explanation & Demonstration)

Experience why the Oxygen Air Frame remains the fastest, simplest and most reliable inflation system on the market in the following walkthrough; this contains the Dynamic Speed Valve (the quickest inflation/deflation valve on the market), Intelligent Frame Relief Valve (our patented ressure relief valve) and our high pressure air tubes.

How the Dynamic Speed Valve Works

The Dynamic Speed Valve remains the fastest, simplest and most reliable inflation valve on the market today; derived from the marine industry, this valve has been tested to its very limit. A quick-release button opens the valve when pressed in and seals it once pushed out, allowing you to effortlessly inflate or deflate at will. We suggest leaving this valve open when packing your product away, as this allows any excess air to be simply rolled out of each tube. The following guide video demonstrates this in a little more detail.

How to Tighten the Valves on an Oxygen Air Frame Tube

Sometimes, when an Oxygen Air Frame Tube begins to slowly deflate over a number of hours; it could be that the Dynamic Speed Valve or Intelligent Frame Relief Valve has become loose in transit. You should find a valve tightening tool in the inclusive repair kit for these products (please request one from if can not locate this), which can be attached to each of these valves (one side for each) and twisted clockwise in order to tighten the leaking valve. Please note that to tighten the valve, you do not have to remove the tube from the product; we have done this for demonstrative purposes only. Please watch the following video for a visual demonstration.

How to Remove the Dynamic Speed Valve & Intelligent Frame Relief Valve From An Oxygen Air Frame Tube

The removal of a Dynamic Speed Valve & Intelligent Frame Relief Valve is really just as straightforward as the tightening process; simply twist the inclusive valve tightening tool packed inside the repair kit (please contact should you be unable to locate this) anti-clockwise, whilst holding the back of the valve in your spare hand, until it unscrews out of place.

How to Swap a Tube & Sleeve

Swapping the internal bladder or external cover from our Oxygen Air Frame Tubes in the event of an emergency sounds like hard work, however as shown by this visual demonstration, this is easier than ever with an Outdoor Revolution caravan awning, drive away awning or family tent.
