Our brown railway sleepers are a high quality softwood that’s undergone tanalisation, a process that involves impregnating wood under high pressure with TANALITH® E and a small amount of brown dye. This treatment ensures longevity, with our sleepers able to last many years exposed to the elements. These sleepers are both child and pet friendly unlike alternative products that may have been treated with creosote or similarly toxic chemicals. They’re also the ideal way to construct vegetable planters in your kitchen garden or allotment, as the treatment does not leach into the soil.
Railway sleepers 2.4 m
Dimensions of our sleepers are 2.4m (2400mm) long, 200mm high and 100mm wide, with a tolerance of c. 10mm.
New railway sleepers are regularly shaped and sized, with clean edges, unlike reclaimed sleepers which are often damaged, impregnated with creosote, unpleasant to handle and sometimes difficult to install. This makes them the obvious choice for owners of modern properties who would like to incorporate softer, organic material into the design of outdoor spaces while maintaining crisp, straight lines. If you’d prefer a more rustic aesthetic it’s a straightforward process to refinish or roughen the edges while still benefiting from the advantages of tanalisation over more toxic processes. After 3-6 months of weathering, the sleepers will acquire a silver-grey finish complimentary to the design of your outdoor area.
Railway sleeper garden edging
Ideally suited to use in domestic gardens whilst also being hardwearing enough for commercial settings, our railway sleepers are often used for lawn or garden edging, raised flower beds, allotment vegetable planters, steps, small retaining walls and even garden furniture. Some of our customers have used our sleepers to construct raised platforms for lawns and patios.
