Complete your playground design with the Border Timber with Spike – 12″ Tall to hold in the safety surfacing of your choice. Whether you’re using wood mulch or rubber mulch, you’re going to need a way to keep it under the play structure. In most cases, a playground will need at least 12-inches of wood mulch when first putting in a playground as to get a 9-inch depth, it will compact down over time. While less rubber mulch is often needed, 6-inches of any loose item needs a barrier to hold it in place.
Each Border Timber is 4-feet long with 2-inches on either end for overlapping. The overlapping design is what keeps the surfacing in the designated play area. It also allows you to create a shape rather than just a box. Every four feet the border can be turned in the direction it needs. This allows the flexibility to make curves around larger playgrounds.
A playground should be a place where every child can play. That is why we offer ADA Half and Full Ramps that fit with the Border Timbers. This can make the area accessible for children in wheelchairs, that are unable to hop over the borders, or even for parents trying to follow their children to keep an eye on them.
If you’re thinking about using rubber mulch, more than likely you’ll only need the Border Timber with Spike – 8″ Tall.
