UK Oak Sleepers
Long-term outdoor or heavy applications. Ideal for prominent features such as pergolas, signs, steps, seats, walls, fences, edging, or garden planters.
UK Oak timber is grown slowly in cooler European climates, resulting in tighter growth rings producing a sleeper that is more dense and solid, and therefore has greater durability and strength. Possible ex-rail steel and stone indentations combine with rich oak colouring, bringing an authentic railway look and feel to any outdoor setting.
Umber brown with darker shades mixed throughout
3800mm x 250mm x 150mm (+/- 10mm) (longer as per availability)
The tops and sides of our UK Oak Sleepers are generally square, with possible split and/or worn ends. Minor cracks and chips are likely present, as well ex-rail steel and boltholes. These are available in lengths ranging from 2.6m to a rare 4.6m+, as per availability.
Rectangular in appearance, robust and carries a high degree of long-term integrity. Historic preservation treatment typically visually present with shorter 2.6m lengths, and greater weathering and Oak colouring with longer sleepers from 3m+. Visual preservation treatment may still be present.
Extremely durable due to historical treatment and being dense oak from the Northern Hemisphere. Not commonly seen in New Zealand landscapes. Polythene lining is advised if used for edible gardens.
