New Shaped & Profiled Eco Railway Sleepers

New Shaped & Profiled Eco Railway Sleepers

Grade: NEW Shape Profiled railway sleepers. Square cut and machined from German redwood timber to create a choice of 2 different sides. Colour: Light natural pine colour with a tinge of green treatment, that bleaches silver grey in the sun after 6 months or so. If you fancy a bolder darker colour, there is always the easy option of staining these shaped and profiled sleepers with a multitude of colours that can be applied by brush, and are available in most DIY stores. Weight: These are the lightest of our railway sleepers, and considerably easier to lift than the hardwood railway sleepers. (Approx 30 - 35 kilos for the 2.4m x 200mm x 100mm length). Always bear this in mind when you are ordering this particular size of shaped railway sleeper. How do I plan to carry the railway sleepers into position? (e.g. the back of a garden). You'll normally need at least two willing people, with the possibility of incentives to sweeten the lifting process. Treatment: Eco-friendly treatment (Non-creosote treated). A good choice for domestic landscaping, decking, raised beds, steps, retaining walls, growing vegetables, children's play areas, schools, public areas or places where people may sit on these railway sleepers or come into skin contact with them. If you cut any of these railway sleepers you will need to treat the cut end with a wood preservative (available in any DIY shop) Description: These NEW shape profiled railway sleepers have been machined both sides from German Redwood timber to create 2 completely different profiles, that create endless landscaping possibilities for decking, steps, raised beds and retaining walls etc... They are square edged, straight and lighter than most used railway sleepers, and so easy to stack, cut & drill. See pictures above. They are FSC certified, which means that they come from approved well managed forests. Like all new timbers they can crack or move as they season, which adds to that natural weathered finish. Cutting: Fairly easy. The easiest of all our railway sleepers to cut. You can use a circular saw, chainsaw or even a handsaw to cut them. As with any project, it makes sense to try and limit the amount of cuts you need to do. Try and plan a design that fits with the size of our shaped sleepers! As mentioned above, if you cut any of the railway sleepers you will need to treat the cut ends with a wood preservative (available in any DIY shop) Attaching / Fixing: Timberlok will probably screw through these railway sleepers without a pilot hole, so long as the drill is reasonably powerful. So no need to pre-drill, and connecting these sleepers together should be pretty quick and straightforward. Sizes: All sizes below are normally reasonably accurate within 10mm or so. As it happens, most landscaping projects have an element of flexibility or tolerance in them and can cope with this. If your project needs exact accuracy in length, width or depth, then you may need to cut them to your precise specifications yourself.
