According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, over 200,000 children are treated in U.S. emergency rooms each year for playground-related injuries. The National Playground Safety Institute reports 45% of these injuries are critical, including internal injuries, concussions, and amputations. With such a high risk of potential injury, how can you promote safe play?
The public playground is one of the few environments where children can come together to discover the value of play, learn about each other, leave their differences behind, and truly be kids. Playgrounds should be inclusive and universally accessible by everyone - a place where all are welcome regardless of age or ability.
To receive LEED certification, building projects must go through a rigorous process that involves satisfying certain prerequisites and earning points (called credits) to achieve different levels of certification. Prerequisites and credits differ for each rating system, and teams choose the best fit for their project.
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.
While safety surfaces in public playgrounds, pools, and other settings are subject to federal and state regulations, the same is not true of residential surfaces.
That does not mean your family should be put at risk, however, and No Fault Sport Group offers a number of surfaces designed for use in residential settings that will help to protect them.
You may have noticed that each of our playground safety surface products - Poured-In-Place(PIP), Rubber Mulch, and Safety Tiles - have "critical fall heights" associated with them. The term is a combination of fall height and critical height.
In this post, we define each of those terms and explain their importance.
Playground safety is a matter of utmost concern here at No Fault, which is why we offer the finest, most high-quality playground safety surfaces on the market today.
As good as our products are, there are steps you can take to prevent injury. Here are ten to consider.
No Fault Rubber Mulch could be called the all-purpose safety surface. Its use spans a variety of applications including playgrounds, equestrian arenas, jogging paths and walkways, and as landscape material.
In this post, we discuss five ways to use rubber mulch along with its advantages over other surfaces such as wood and gravel.
There are several things to keep in mind when choosing a playground surface product. Aesthetics, while important, aren't nearly as critical as ensuring the safety and accessibility of children who play on them.
The answer to that question is an unqualified "yes." Rubber mulch is safe both for the environment and for use as a playground surface.
No Fault Sport Group is the originator of the poured-in-place (PIP) playground surface in the United States.
Due to its resilience, accessibility, and shock absorbency, our PIP safety surfaces have become the standard for use in playgrounds, theme parks, jogging tracks, sports and recreation areas, and water play areas, just to name a few.
In the previous post, we talked about the number of injuries that occur on playgrounds every year. Combined, they rise to a whopping 500,000, more than half of which result from falls to a playground surface not designed to ensure safety.
Recognizing these facts, many organizations, including the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), have issued guidelines and standards for playground surfaces.
No Fault has designed rubber safety surfaces for playgrounds across the country including theme parks, municipalities, schools, and Indian reservations.
