Pressure treated to increase their working life; softwood sleepers are a cleaner and regularised version of the reclaimed ones, also easier to handle and cut. If you are looking for a clean square cut timber, these new softwood sleepers are an excellent option. Ideal for making simple benches too. Find out how to make soil-retaining timber wall with our guide.
Our suppliers use unseasoned timber to manufacture our new softwood and hardwood sleepers. As this timber has not been subjected to a fast drying process it will season and mature over time, expanding and contracting with the weather. This process may create splits, checks and shakes in the timber which add character to their unique appearance. These natural changes do not affect the integrity of the product. The colour of the sleeper will also change, silvering over time.
All sleeper sizes are nominal as this is rough sawn products and not machined to an exact tolerance. This enhances their individuality and appearance. Please contact us if you require any further information.
