We can deliver any quantity of 10 or more sleepers. Standard Sleepers - TR - The most popular and commonly used sleeper by far. They are treated with creosote and are best applied wherever longevity and durability are the key requirements. The creosote treatment means the rules on the previous page apply at all times , but they are fine for any and every other purpose. These are just about the best value-for-money pieces of timber you will ever find.

In Europe the untreated Redwood ties have been in track for approximately 50 years. Most major railroads in North America have used these ties in special situations such as high speed, heavy duty traffic on curves with a super elevation, and where regular wood ties have failed early and concrete ties have also had a difficult time performing. Azobe hardwood also has been used successfully as bridge timbers, turnout ties, fir crossings, and crossties for chemical plants, steel mills, wetlands and tunnels. The “RedwoodTie” can be made to specification for crossties, switch ties, bridge ties, bridge stringers, bridge caps, raising pieces, short cross tie sections embedded in concrete or cross ties for elevated structures. If ties are not embedded into ballast, our saw mill can offer these ties waxed to prevent deformation and splitting. They can be pre-drilled according to your specification and also be equipped with gang nails at both ends. Redwood is a coarse textured wood with a very tight interlocking grain that not only offers resistance to natural enemies of other woods, but also makes pressurized treatment unnecessary and virtually impossible. Tests confirm Redwood to be resistant to plate cutting, gauge widening and decay. Because Redwood has many superior properties, it is excluded from the Buy American Act. The premium grade material does command a premium price. Standard Cross Ties 2.6 metres Long x 250 x 150CM

C Grade Sleepers - TR - When we buy such large quantities of sleepers there are, of course, some that are not up to standard. We do our best to remove these, and we sell them at a lower price; these are our 2 nd grade sleepers and they can be in a variety of conditions; ideal for shed bases, hidden supports etc. where they cannot be seen as they often don't match, but still provide strength and durability
We also have larger untreated sleepers which are rather unusual; they are the same size as the standard sleepers and they are just as tough. With almost the same level of durability they are ideal for maintaining a natural appearance while also being untreated they are safe to use inside buildings and in playgrounds.The wood, as seen here, is a rich red colour and these can often be used to make fantastic furniture.
