Railway sleepers are recycled timbers removed from the railway lines and are increasingly becoming harder to source! We source these pre-graded timbers in as many grades as we can. As a guide, they are graded by their quality of timber; straight sides & cracking etc.
Please enquire as to what grades of sleepers we keep in stock as the grades & lengths will change depending upon supply.
Majority of sleepers we source come in the following dimensions of 220mm (face) x 120mm (thick) and lengths of 2100mm and 2400mm.
AA Grade: A high quality hardwood sleeper with a ‘nice and square’ appearance with 3-4 good sides with minimal cracking. Excellent for all purpose use, feature timbers, garden retaining walls or for landscape usage with a straight edge.
A Grade: These high quality hardwood sleepers are also ‘nice and square’ with 2-3 good sides with minimal cracking. Excellent for all purpose use, feature timbers, garden retaining walls or for landscape usage with a straight edge.
B Grade: A good solid hardwood sleeper with a minor defect on its face or side, generally 1-2 good sides with some cracking. Very good for all purpose use, retaining walls, vegetable beds or other landscape uses.
C Grade: An older sleeper, more rustic but still full length. Mostly used for garden bordering or rustic feature timbers.
