Our beautiful untreated naturally long-lasting New Planed and Bevelled Oak Railway Sleepers are an all-round sleeper that can be used to create raised beds, retaining walls, raised beds, planters and outdoor furniture.
These sleepers are planed all round and then bevelled for an eased edge to ensure that they are virtually splinter free and safe to use in sensitive applications such as children’s play areas and schools. Planing ensures that the sleepers are of an even thickness and flat on either side. Further sanding may be required should you require an even smoother finish.
Cut from sleeper grade material, your sleepers may have some slight wane to one or two edges, as well as some knots, bark and surface checks.
Being a natural living product, you may also experience some colour variation to the image, and when in place some further natural movement which may cause splits, warping and some sap as the timber adjusts to the changing seasons. These characteristics are to be expected and will give a beautiful natural distinctive appearance.
