Playground Borders and Edging

Playground borders can be an integral part of a kid-friendly play space. Whether you invest in plastic edging or rubber playground edging, how you decorate the outline of your play space can significantly affect its aesthetic value and even its safety. Playground timbers are more than just an accessory; they also function as a way to guide children toward smart decisions during play time by highlighting paths and marking out designated play areas. In addition, they can give physically disabled people an opportunity to play in the same areas as those without disabilities. With so many potential benefits, borders can be one of the wisest investments you can make for the functionality and potential enjoyment of your play space.

Put simply, borders are a great way to raise the profile of your playground. The aesthetic value of a playground with poured surfaces can increase when rubber edging is set around them. Aside from clearly delineating a play space from other areas, this playground edging can provide an interesting decorative outline. Schools can take advantage of the variety of border colors by choosing hues that closely mirror those used by a mascot for an extra kick of spirit.

Playground timbers can also have practical uses. Borders can be used to inform wheelchair users where accessible areas are and guide them into spaces least likely to present navigation problems. You can help wheelchairs transition between surfaces using half- or full-length ramps, as they provide just the right degree of smoothness on which wheels can roll.

Particularly large play areas can benefit from incorporating borders into their designs if their owners wish to devote sections to equipment made for specific age groups. Sectioning off areas for certain groups of kids can vastly reduce the incidence of accidents that may occur when young children attempt to scale play structures designed for older kids, and a playground border can keep older children playing with kids who are closer to their age and size. With a little adult supervision, these play spaces can widely remain free of accident and injury. They can also serve as active reminders to both parents and kids of which areas are safe to play in and which can present potential hazards.

Playgrounds that have incorporated loose-fill surfaces may consider a playground border to keep the fill inside of its designated space. Playground timbers can significantly reduce cleanup times and keep mulch out of walkways for a safer entry and exit.
