Our History

Sof’Solutions™ Incorporated (formerly Sof’Fall® Incorporated) was established in 1992 to provide engineered wood fiber for playground safety surfacing. In January, 1999 the current owner of the company purchased Sof’Fall® from its founders and continues to operate the company today.

Due to the growing success of Sof’Fall® engineered wood fiber, and with the desire to offer its customers additional safety solutions, in September 2004 the company added another line of surfacing. The product was a unique two-layer surfacing system utilizing a shock absorbent sub-layer and a top wear layer.

In July 2005, Sof’Fall Inc. added another product solution, Sof’Bounce™ Engineered Rubber. Sof’Bounce is a recycled loose rubber product available in a number of different colors.

Also in 2005, the company changed its name to Sof’Solutions, Inc. to better reflect the broad range of safety surfacing available.

In November 2005, Sof’Solutions continued to add to its line-up of innovative safety surfacing products with the release of Sof’Splash Aqua Surfacing, an interlocking mat surface that provides slip resistant surfacing for spraygrounds, splash pads, and locker rooms. Sof’Splash is available in six bold UV resistant colors and is self-draining, and slip resistant.

The innovation continued into 2006 with the release of Sof’Shield Outdoor innovative mat surfacing in June, and Sof’Shield Indoor in August. These incredibly durable mats use a patent pending overlapping/interlocking connection system to form a seamless recreation surface for superior safety, accessibility, and durability. The addition of these two unique product lines, and their sister product Sof’Path Accessible Pathway was introduced in October 2006, make Sof’Solutions the complete solution for recreation surfacing. Indoor, outdoor, wet or dry, we’ve got your play area covered.

Sof’Solutions Inc., in keeping with the original mission of Sof’Fall Inc., is dedicated to maintaining the highest levels of quality and improving the safety for all children that play on Sof’Solutions’ surfaces. Sof’Solutions does this by rigorous testing and certifying of all the products they produce and distribute.

Currently, Sof’Solutions Inc. distributes: Sof’Fall engineered wood fiber; Sof’Bounce engineered rubber surfacing; Sof’Mat, an “under the surface” mat that protects high traffic areas on playgrounds; Sof’Splash aqua mat; Sof’Shield durable mat surfacing for indoor and outdoor, and Sof’Path accessible surfacing. Sof’Solutions will continue to develop more of the best products available for playground safety.
