FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
-How much does a Bariquin weigh?
A Bariquin weighs 25st or 350 pounds which is approximately 159kgs. Each Bariquin is made up of 15 weighted parts, a jacket plus realistic looking head, hands and feet. The heaviest component is 16kgs (less than the weight of a flight suitcase). Carrying handles are provided on all the heaviest parts, allowing ‘Barry’ to be transported easily.
-How do I clean a Bariquin?
The material used for making a Bariquin, micrAgard Plus™ has been designed to retain its antibacterial properties with very little maintenance. It can be cleaned with just water or mild soap and water. 'Mild soap'is the type of soap that can be used without having to protect your skin. Do not use chlorine-based products or chlorine-containing cleaning agents to clean a Bariquin.
The head, hands and feet of a Bariquin are made from silicone, so dirt and dust should wipe clean with a damp cloth or wet wipe/baby wipe as silicone is waterproof too. Silicone however can be stained with inks such as permanent marker or oil based paints. Fake blood should be wiped clean (although the pigment may stain if left to dry for a prolonged period of time). If grime is ground into the surface of the rubber (damaging the silicone) this will also stain it and for any particularly heavy dirt, cleaning with IPA (isopropyl alcohol) on a clean brush or cloth may be required. If the Silicone is tacky on the surface after using IPA simply dust lightly with talcum powder. IPA can be found easily online, at certain chemists or even computer stores will stock it.

It is a very strong material and has been chosen to withstand use in demanding environments. micrAgard is also fully recyclable and does not have the harmful components that are used in PVC. Bariquins are filled with recycled rubber made from excess rubber collected during the manufacture of new rubber products. The webbing that is used in the manufacture of the Bariquin is extremely strong too.

A special set of clothing consisting of a sweat shirt and jogging bottoms is available for purchase. These are placed on the floor or wherever the scenario is to be held, prior to assembling the Bariquin. Once the Bariquin has been built, the clothing can be fastened around 'Barry' to make him look even more realistic.
A set of overalls as an alternative to the sweat shirt and jogging bottoms is currently in development.
