Tennis Court with Poured-in-Place Rubber Surfacing

1970’s

No Fault started off as a sport surfacing company, in 1974, initially focused on tennis courts and competitive tracks. Synthetic athletic surfacing provided the basis for No Fault’s development of the first poured-in-place safety surface designed specifically for playgrounds in the United States.

The original poured safety surface was created to fulfill the demand by quick service restaurants and the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) “impact” guidelines. This established No Fault’s unique reputation in the playground market as the original creator of the poured-in-place (PIP) playground surfacing.
