You remember the childhood game "show and tell?" In this post, rather than merely telling you about our products, we take you on a road trip to show them to you. Our itinerary includes four stops across the South - Texas, Louisiana, Alabama, and Florida.
First Baptist Church (Neches, Texas)
Our first stop takes us to First Baptist Church in Neches, Texas. The church decided to surface its playground with No Fault Rubber Mulch. Church members were extremely pleased with the ease of installation and the results. For this project, our customer requested "Super Sacks," which contain one ton of mulch per sack.
No Fault Rubber Mulch is the safest loose fill playground surface available. Unlike wood mulch, it does not create dust, mildew or attract insects. Surfaces like grass, dirt and asphalt do not have the impact absorbing qualities to be considered safe for playground use. In addition to being a much safer option, rubber mulch is also a very economical choice, making it a great all-around choice when it comes to surfacing.

Behavioral Intervention Group (BIG) (Baton Rouge, Louisiana)
Next, we visit the Behavioral Intervention Group (BIG) located in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, where we installed our No Fault Safety Surface in the play areas.
BIG is a team of dedicated therapists who provide teaching environments and learning opportunities for children with autism and other developmental disorders. For this reason, they chose a warm, soothing red color for their surfacing.
No Fault surfacing proves that even smaller play areas can be "BIG!"
Rocky Ridge Elementary School (Birmingham, Alabama)
Crossing into the "Heart of Dixie,” No Fault partnered with Giffen Recreation to install our poured-in-place rubber surfacing at Rocky Ridge Elementary School in Birmingham, Alabama.
The school wanted a "space theme" for their new playground, so our No Fault designers went to work creating a terra cotta red and purple rocket ship complete with yellow stars in the sky surrounded by a natural tan and black background.
The final product produced a fun, whimsical pattern that the children are sure to enjoy, and that is a credit to the creativity of our design team.
Tom Sawyer Island at Amelia Earhart Park (Hialeah, Florida)
Our final stop takes us to the Sunshine State where we visit Tom Sawyer Island, a one-acre children's paradise located at Amelia Earhart Park in Hialeah, Florida.
In order to get to Tom Sawyer Island, children venture across a swinging rope bridge, crawl through a tunnel, and traverse rope netting to land in a playground filled with slides, swings, a climbing tower, and a shelter to rest.
No Fault partnered with Rep Services to provide more than 3,000 square feet of No Fault Safety Surface for the Island's playground. Our rubber surfacing is seamless, slip resistant and will provide the right fall height protection as children swing and climb all around the playground area.
As you can see, No Fault provides safety surfacing for playgrounds in all sorts of places – churches, schools, public parks, and more.
