Border Options for Playground Areas!

Funtimbers Plastic Border Timbers!

Each 4’ long Funtimber ships with a ground spike, and is available in 12” or 9” heights.

Safe

Funtimbers™ have rounded corners and no sharp edges, making them safe for any play area, and unlike treated wood timbers, Funtimbers™ will never rot, decay, splinter, or secrete poisonous arsenic like treated wood timbers.

Economical

Funtimbers™ are the most cost-effective, easy-to-install retaining system in the playground  industry. FunTimbers BordersFuntimbers™ are constructed of polyethylene and are extremely durable, yet lightweight, and require far less labor than the conventional wood timber. Once installed, Funtimbers™ are virtually maintenance-free.

Our 4' length is easier to work with than 6' timbers, allows for unlimited varieties of design, and requires only one spike for secure installation. Our snap-in spike containment enables the Funtimbers™ and spikes to ship as one unit, which saves you time and money on installation and prevents loss in shipment.

Note: How to calculate how many funtimbers you will need?

If your playground area length and width dimensions are divisible by the 4’ 'funtimber length', then simply divide the amount of your linear feet by 4’. Example: if your rectangular area length is 40’ long by 32’ wide, you will need enough timbers for all four sides: 32’ + 32’ + 40’ + 40’ = (144’ total). Therefore; 144’/4’ = (36) funtimbers, or: (35) funtimbers and (1) funtimber ADA ramp.

If your area is not divisible by 4’, we offer the ‘adjustable end kits’. You can cut a funtimber to a desired length, and insert the adjustable end (like the image below) to customize your required size. It is easier to settle on an area dimension which is divisible by 4’, however if that is not possible, consider the adjustable end kits.
