As one of the leading importers and suppliers of railway sleepers in the UK, we can supply anything from one sleeper for a garden project, to a full load for commercial projects or retail outlets.
Reclaimed sleepers have numerous uses, but it is worthy of note that if the sleepers are to be in constant close skin contact, such as for seating or raised beds, then you are better advised to utilise new sleepers.
They are graded into two main classifications, namely Grade 1 and Grade 2. Grade 1 have the fewest cracks and are the straightest lengths. Grade 2 by definition are slightly lower grade. However, many projects do not require Grade 1, such as retaining walls, load bearers etc., so Grade 2 are ideal and slightly lower in price.
With the limitations on usage of reclaimed sleepers, newly sawn timber sleepers have become increasingly popular. As leading suppliers of sleepers, R F Landscape Products Ltd have risen to that challenge and stock three core ranges, namely Oak and Tanalised Softwood.
New oak is freshly sawn and untreated. Being a hardwood, it provides a long lifetime of use, if installed correctly. They are by their nature, very heavy (around 70kgs) and substantial. Our exotic hardwood sleepers are untreated too but being a dark colour, give the appearance of a reclaimed sleeper.
Tanalised softwood sleepers are available in two colours; green and brown. Because the wood is not as dense, it is treated with a coloured preservative to lengthen its lifespan. They are easy to handle too, being much lighter (around 55kgs) than the new oak equivalent.
