We provide tanalised softwood railway sleepers which are available in two sizes - 2.4 or 1.2 metres long (8 feet and 4 feet approximately). They are guaranteed against rot for 15 years. Changing weather conditions may cause these railway sleepers to distort slightly over time.
if you are creating a children's playground or play area containing sand pits, benches, play features etc then these are railway sleepers for you. These sleepers undergo a non toxic pressure treatment ensuring a life span of usually around 25 years. Softwood railway sleepers are very easy to work with compared to hardwood sleepers. Please note that if you are designing load bearing features such as bridges you will need to use hard wood railway sleepers.
Our reclaimed hardwood sleepers are guaranteed rot free and come with all ironwork removed. We source them from around the UK and occasionally Europe and they are always sold at competitive prices - amongst the cheapest in London.
