Learn More About Who We Are

Robertson started in Arizona in 1991 and primarily installed pool deck installations in commercial and residential* applications. It was the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) regulations that propelled us into the playground world to help provide the ultimate in accessibility, while meeting all safety guidelines.  We continue to install safer surfaces for commercial playgrounds and recreational spaces to this day.  Since 1991 we have added service centers, installation professionals, and representatives across the US to help provide safer, more accessible playgrounds and recreation for all communities and people with all abilities. In 2017, our parent company acquired the installation company Sport Surface Specialties. Today we work together as one team to install compliant play and recreational surfaces across North America.
