Our 2.4m oak railway sleeper measures 200x100mm. This substantial piece of timber is a brand new product, so does not contain any messy creosote.
Oak is a naturally dense timber, your new railway sleeper will not require treating with a preservative; but you can oil or stain to suit your individual requirements. Left untreated they will silver with age.
Use to make great garden walls, steps or raised beds. Please be aware that extremes of dryness and heat may cause these sleepers to move and form splits and shakes.
- New Sleepers are machined from natural, organic timber that has not undergone any drying process. They will naturally season over time.
- As the timber dries, shrinkage will occur in different directions. This will develop that natural look and will not affect the integrity of your sleeper.
- Sleeper dimensions may vary slightly to sizes stated. They are not machined to an exact tolerance which helps gives them their individual, natural character.
