Rubber Playground & Landscape Border Timbers

Rubberific Rubber Timbers also known as playground borders are the premium recycled rubber solution for both landscapes and playgrounds in North America. 

What are Rubber Playground Timbers?

Rubber timbers are a type of landscaping material that is made from recycled rubber. They are often used in place of traditional wooden timbers for applications such as retaining walls, edging, and borders. Rubber timbers have several advantages over traditional wood timbers:

  • Durability: Rubber timbers are resistant to rot, decay, and insect damage, making them more durable and longer-lasting than wood.
  • Weather resistance: Rubber timbers are resistant to water and UV radiation, making them suitable for use in outdoor applications.
  • Low maintenance: Rubber timbers do not require painting or sealing, and they do not splinter or crack like wood can.
  • Environmentally friendly: Rubber timbers are made from recycled rubber, which helps to reduce waste and conserve natural resources.

Rubber timbers are used in a variety of outdoor landscaping and construction applications, including retaining walls, edging, borders, and playgrounds. They are also used in commercial and industrial settings for flooring, erosion control, and other applications.

What are Rubber Timbers made of?

Rubber playground border edging timbers are made from recycled rubber car tires. The rubber is typically collected from used tires and other rubber products, and it is processed and molded into the desired shape.

The rubber used to make up traditional vehicle tires and these timbers is typically a blend of styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR) and neoprene, which is a durable and weather-resistant material that is well-suited for outdoor use.

Rubber playground border edging timbers are often used to surround playgrounds and other outdoor play areas to create a safe and visually appealing space for children. They are typically installed along the edges of the play area to define the boundaries and provide a barrier to prevent children from wandering off.

In addition to being made from recycled rubber, rubber playground border edging timbers are often designed with safety in mind. They may have a softer surface and be more flexible than traditional wood timbers, which can help to reduce the risk of injury if a child falls or collides with the border.

How to Install Rubber Playground Timbers 

There are several steps involved in installing rubber playground border edging:

  • Plan and prepare the site: Before installing the border edging, you should determine the layout and size of the play area, and mark the boundaries with spray paint or stakes and string. You should also remove any grass, weeds, or debris from the area where the border edging will be installed.
  • Excavate and level the site: Depending on the layout and size of the play area, you may need to excavate the site to create a level surface for the border edging. You should use a shovel or small excavator to remove any excess soil or debris, and use a tamper or compacting tool to compact the soil and create a stable base for the border edging.
  • Lay out the border edging: Once the site is prepared, you can begin laying out the border edging. You should place the timbers along the marked boundaries of the play area, making sure that they are level and evenly spaced. You may need to cut the timbers to fit around curves or corners.
  • Secure the border edging: To secure the border edging in place, you can use a variety of methods, such as using stakes, spikes, or screws to anchor the timbers to the ground. You can also use adhesive or sealant to help hold the timbers in place.
  • Fill and compact the play area: Once the border edging is installed, you can fill the play area with a suitable surface material, such as mulch, wood chips, or rubber mulch. You should spread the material evenly across the play area and use a tamper or compacting tool to compact it in place.
  • Test and inspect the play area: Before allowing children to use the play area, you should test and inspect it to ensure that it is safe and in good condition. This may include checking the border edging for stability, checking the surface material for any hazards, and ensuring that all equipment is in good working order.
