Stock and Pricing Guide
Tropical reclaimed hardwoods are straight and make good rustic edging, garden features and retaining walls where an attractive ‘seasoned’ look is required. They are extremely hard, durable, strong and suitable for load bearing applications.
They do not need treating and have attractive colour and surface texture however as grade ‘B’ may have some splits. Existing for many years due to their durability they are made from a mixture of species including Jarrah, Ekki, Karri, Angelim Vermelho & Angelim Pedra.
Reclaimed, these are very durable, originally Creosoted and made from ‘seasoned’ Oak. They have quite a ‘Rustic’
appearance and are very good for duties where strength is required, for example retaining walls and bridges. We always try to stock the highest grades which are generally straight with good surfaces.
Unlike new Oak sleepers, they are very stable and are very unlikely to deform or split further. Our good quality Oak sleepers offer exceptionally good value for money and are heavier and stronger than softwood types, thus helping to ensure a stable, durable structure when in place.
Reclaimed, they are fairly straight and make good rustic
edging, garden features and retaining walls where a
‘seasoned’ look is required. However sometimes they have rounded edges and are not so suitable for laying edge on edge.
Although accurately machined and an attractive golden brown when first produced they quite rapidly turn a light grey and are prone to warping and splitting.
reclaimed ‘Rustic’ Oak types new Oak sleepers are likely
to move after installation.
This is partly because they are usually made from
‘Green Oak’ which may not be properly seasoned.
They are more durable than new Tanalised Pine if
properly treated prior to placement. We categorically
recommend new oak should always be treated if in contact
with the ground.
A non-permeable ground sheet is recommended
between the sleeper and soil.
