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. Flex Spikes
When selecting your border timbers, you have the option to choose between the traditional galvanized steel spikes or flex spikes. The flex spikes are made from impact-resistant nylon 66 polymer material that has been formulated to withstand hammer strikes.
Flex 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. Flex 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. Flex spike tip: If the ground is too hard, or if you’re having difficulty driving the flex 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.
