All of our Sleepers are Green tanalised (pressure treated), which is a treatment that ensures a deep penetration of the wood preservative into the timber cells, this provides long-lasting protection against fungal decay, insect attack and rotting caused by water for up to 15 years. Tanalised wood has a green colouration initially which will fade to a honey brown and finally to a silver grey. However, if you would prefer, these sleepers can be easily stained to suit your needs.
It is possible to cut the sleepers using a circular saw, chainsaw or a hand saw – please bear in mind that any newly exposed cut surfaces will need treating with a wood preservative.
Idea projects include, Raised Beds and Planters for Growing Vegetables, Herbs and Flowers. Retaining walls, Garden steps, upright solid fencing, sandpits for children etc.
Each sleeper weighs between 20 – 30 Kg and the dimensions are 2.4m X 200mm X 100mm
