U.K Oak Rustic Hardwood Railway Sleepers (Used)

A great valued sleeper with unique, robust sizing. Very Authentic ex-rail feel and look with occasional rail steel and bolt holes throughout. More suited toward outdoor use. The (historically) treated oak makes them very durable, expect a lifetime of use from these with a maintained aesthetic & character.

The oversized length of these sleepers comes from where rail tracks spilt (called turnouts) and is where wider sleepers and required for short distances on the track. Hence the 2.8m to 3.4m are hard to source and to equally maintain stock levels once arriving into NZ from Europe due to their popularity.

  • Great versatility & consistency with various lengths available. Works well with installations that require both vertical and horizontal positioning such as pergola posts and edging.  
  • Not to be found elsewhere in NZ, exclusive to Interlink.
  • Can be installed to a high standard with quality rustic integrity.
  • Treatment: Reasonably heavy (historic) Creosote treated.
  • Durability: Class 2.  15 – 25+ years in ground / 15 – 40+ years exposed.
  • Dimensions: 2600 / 2800 / 3400mm x 250mm x 150mm (+/- 10mm)
  • Minimum order: 12 x Sleepers
  • Weight: 80 / 86 / 104 kg each.
