Please note! Gloves must be worn when handling our sleepers, particularly when they are Creosoted or Tanalised


Please note:    

There are regulations regarding restrictions on where Creosote treated timber can be used.  Where contact with skin is likely i.e.: seating, interior use and children play areas Creosoted timber is not acceptable.

The prohibitions on usage, according to EC & EEC regulations are as follows:-

  • Inside buildings (whatever the purpose), in toys, in playgrounds and in garden furniture.

  • In garden situations where there is a risk of ‘frequent’ skin contact.  ‘Frequent’ is advised by the DTI to mean “habitual or constant”.

  • It is important to wear gloves when handling treated sleepers not only because of the treated surface but also to avoid skin damage.

Fairoak Sleepers trusts that this information is of assistance in your enjoying safe usage of our products and would like to make the following comments:

  • It is our understanding that you can grow produce, (veg etc.) inside a space contained by treated sleepers but not on them and that they can be used for retaining slopes in say a garden or commercial environment.

  • Probably the main issue with reclaimed sleepers is not necessarily toxicity, since the more hazardous low molecular with contaminants and water soluble phenols will have long since dispersed, but the dirtiness of the entrained Bitumen.  Bitumen is potentially more of a problem with pressure treated Pine compared with Oak since Pine has a much more ‘open’ wood grain absorbing more Bitumen and therefore having a greater tendency to ‘bleed’ in warm weather.

  • Reclaimed Railway Sleepers are a natural product inevitably of considerable age and therefore one finds there is a variation of quality between loads.  We recommend viewing a potential consignment to be sure that you are happy with it.
