No Fault worked on this amazing playground project with Jennifer Ferriell Birge of Bluegrass Recreation Sales & Installation (Little Tikes Commercial). Jennifer stated, “The planning for this playground at Holy Trinity School in St. Matthews, Kentucky started with a child in a wheelchair sitting outside the school’s playground watching while her friends played. She wasn’t able to access the entire area, and there weren’t any activities for her to engage in. People began to take note and from there conversations began expressing the need for change.”
The School aimed to create a playground that provided the opportunity for children of all abilities to be able to play together. Several planning meetings later, an amazing playground design emerged, and Bluegrass Recreation was awarded the project. Bluegrass provided a variety of slides, an incredible amount of climbing activities, a wheelchair swing, a spinning platform for standing and wheelchairs, a rocking ship for wheelchairs and standing, musical instruments, and imaginative play opportunities throughout the roughly 9,500 square foot playground.
To ensure the playground was easily accessible and slip-resistant for children using mobility devices, we installed 9,500 square feet of No Fault Safety Surface in a 50% tan/50% black color combination. No Fault’s ADA accessible surface is poured-in-place by our certified installers as a 2-layer system at varying depths in alignment with the required critical fall heights. The impact absorbing layer is made of clean, recycled rubber. The top decorative EPDM/TPV layer comes in a variety of colors and provides the option for fun, theme-shaped designs.
Both Bluegrass Recreation and No Fault were proud to be part of such a worthy project! Contact No Fault today to speak with one of our Regional Account Managers.
