Playground border timbers from 2by2 Industries are incredibly durable, making them great for a variety of applications. They are most commonly used as playground borders to contain loose-fill surfacing or to create Gaga Ball Pits. These border timbers are ideal for high traffic areas because of their heavy duty, maintenance free construction. They are also IPEMA certified, won’t harbor termites or other insects, and include a 10-year limited warranty.

Each Border Timber is 4-feet long with 2-inches on either end for overlapping and includes a steel spike for quick and easy installation. When used as a playground border to contain surfacing, the overlapping design keeps the mulch in the designated play area. The versatility of the timbers also allows for more organic shapes, since the direction of the border can be adjusted every four feet. This creates the flexibility needed to construct curves around larger playgrounds. The borders also features a reversible aesthetic, with “wood grain” on one side and a standard texture on the other.

Galvanized Steel Spikes vs. Versa Spikes
When selecting your Gaga Ball Pit, you have the option to choose between the traditional galvanized steel spikes or versa spikes. The versa spikes are made from impact-resistant nylon 66 polymer material that has been formulated to withstand hammer strikes.

Versa spikes are significantly lighter weight than their steel counterparts. They weigh only about 1/8th as much as steel spikes. This means they cost less to manufacture and ship, so we are able to pass these savings on to you. Versa spikes are made in the USA and are readily available for fast shipping.

Which type of spike is suitable for your installation will depend largely on the composition of the ground where it is to be installed. Versa spike tip: If the ground is too hard, or if you’re having difficulty driving the versa spike into a hard area, use a 5/8” or 3/4” drill bit to create up to a 12” deep “pilot hole” before driving in the spikes. The ground closest to the surface is often the hardest.

Versa Spike FAQ

Q: Are the Versa Spikes as strong, durable, and reliable as the steel spikes?
A: The surface you’re hitting the spikes into will, in part, determine that conclusion. Versa spikes are not universally accepted in all ground types. They have been field tested in Oklahoma, Texas, Florida, North Carolina, Arkansas, and Oregon. These tests concluded that versa spikes can be used everywhere, but sometimes the ground (or what’s beneath it) can be impenetrable. For that reason, it’s important to know what your local ground is made of. Certain materials like bedrock, sandstone, and limestone won’t accept steel, either!

Q: Are Versa Spikes a good option for Gaga Pits?
A: Versa Spikes are a great choice for Gaga Pit installation. The versa spikes actually help the walls versa out a bit (without the spike breaking) when kids inevitably run into or lean against the walls. This creates a little bit of “give” to absorb the impact during play. And since versa spikes reduce the overall weight substantially, you’ll save both money AND potential back pain!

Q: Do Versa Spikes work with Gaga Pit Flooring Kits?
A: Yes! Versa spikes are able to travel through the rubber flooring material and into the ground.

Q: How long is the Versa Spike warranty?
A: Versa Spikes includes a 5-year limited warranty.
