Playground Borders
Playground Borders

Action Play Systems offers the highest quality playground border in the industry. APS playground borders are 4' 4" long, 4" wide and available in either 8" or 12" heights.

Both our 8" and 12" high playground borders feature our exclusive Surfacing Guide (US Patent #D716,113). This guide serves as a ruler on your playground to enable you to easily review your loose fill surfacing depths on your playground and ensure adequate safety surfacing is always maintained.

Our 8" high playground borders are perfect for Early Childhood environments, or when using rubber mulch and when only a 6" depth of loose fill surfacing is required. The 12" high APS playground border is perfect for all other applications.

Offering a 10-year limited warranty, our product is designed to take the place of wood timbers and offers a permanent, maintenance free solution to keeping your playground safety surfacing where it belongs—on the playground!
