The Funtimbers™ Difference

Funtimbers™ are your answer to permanently maintaining safety surfacing.

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


  • Funtimbers™ are the most cost-effective, easy-to-install retaining system for your playground. Funtimbers™ are constructed of polyethylene with UV stabilizers 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. This allows for unlimited varieties of design, and requires only one spike for secure installation.
  • Our patented snap-in spike containment enables the Funtimbers™ and spike to ship as one unit, which saves you time and money on installation an prevents loss in shipment.
  • Our Spikes are ¾” diameter x 28” long button head, zinc coated steel spikes.
