What is it made out of?
Flogos are synthesized from proprietary surfactant (soap) based foam formulations and lighter than air gases such as helium.
How long do they last?
Flogos are designed to last for as long as their visual impact is needed. Specific formulations are available to provide a life expectancy of a few minutes to an hour or so. The visual impact also greatly depends on atmospheric conditions such as wind and relative humidity. On average Flogos last for thirty to forty minutes.
Will they travel over my target?
Flogos travel with the direction of the current wind flow. The wind current changes at higher altitudes. Flogos take flight to hundreds then thousand of feet high and miles of travel before they evaporate; all the while remaining visible
How far and high can they travel?
They sometimes travel 1 to 30 miles and as high as 5,000 thousand feet. They travel slowly and remain visible for quite awhile.
How complex of a logo can be made?
Our designers use Flogo software to develop and test custom shapes. The Flogo machines come standard in 24 inch and 36 inch versions and can come in 48 inch sizes. The larger the Flogo machine the more complex the logo may be.
Are they environmentally safe?
Flogos are 100% environmentally friendly.
Can you color flogos?
Currently Flogos are a white cloud version, but we have been successively testing color Flogos. We can currently do some colors for an extra charge, but not all colors are available.
How many Flogos per minute can be produced?
With one Flogo machine, on average, you will produce one Flogo every 15 seconds to 50 seconds depending on the machine size and desired thickness. We recommend at least two machines for events, so you have, on average, Flogos produced every 7 seconds to 25 second depending on the machine size and desired thickness.
What sizes are the Flogos?
Currently available in 12 inch, 24 inch, 36 inch and 48 inch models.
We can change out stencils; making many different Flogos fly in the air at one time. We have our standard shapes to add in to the event along with your custom Flogo.

These machines have been designed for the event industry. They travel in attractive road cases and set up in less than 30 minutes. They are broken down in about in 30 minutes.
Is it possible to change the Flogo stencil in one machine?
Yes, the stencil can be changed out as many times as the client requests. We have performed events with multiple sponsors where they have requested multiple custom Flogos. At these events the stencils were changed out every 15 minutes but it can be done to the clients’ specifications.
