Tropical hardwood untreated reclaimed sleepers are straight and make good rustic edging, garden features and retaining walls where an attractive ‘seasoned’ look is required. They are extremely hard, durable, strong and suitable for load bearing applications. They are particularly good for walls, where between RSJ's they produce a strong cost effective wall.
They do not need treating and have attractive colour and surface texture however as grade ‘B’ may have some splits. Existing for many years due to their durability they are made from a mixture of species including Jarrah, Ekki, Karri, Angelim Vermelho, Cupiuba, Piquia & Angelim Pedra.

Reclaimed, these are very durable, originally Creosoted and made from ‘seasoned’ Oak. They have quite a ‘Rustic’ appearance and are very good for duties where strength is required, for example retaining walls and bridges. We always try to stock the highest grades which are generally straight with good surfaces. High grade Oaks can be difficult to obtain.
Unlike new Oak sleepers, they are very stable and are very unlikely to deform or split further. Oak sleepers offer exceptionally good value for money and are heavier and stronger than softwood types, thus helping to ensure a stable, durable and strong structure when in place.

These are light weight hardwood sleepers, Alder, Aspen & Birch are ideal for an attractive ‘fitted’ look, being accurately sawn to size. They are an attractive golden brown, durable, generally straight and relatively light to handle unless new and wet.
Features utilising these sleepers have an ‘engineered’ look many find appealing. Their regular features makes them ideal for steps or a base for a structure and they are readily laid edge on edge or flat on flat. It is wise to use a non-permeable ground sheet between the sleeper and soil.

Although accurately machined and an attractive golden brown when first produced they eventually turn a light grey unless treated and are occasionally prone to warping and splitting. We normally stock French Oak which is probably the most stable.
Unlike reclaimed ‘Rustic’ Oak types new Oak sleepers are likely to move after installation. This is partly because they are usually made from ‘Green Oak’ which may not be properly seasoned. They are more durable than new Tanalised Pine if properly treated prior to placement.
We categorically recommend new oak should always be treated and a non-permeable ground sheet is recommended between the sleeper and soil.
