Traditional Green Treated Railway Sleepers are large, sawn cut rectangle sleepers..
All of our sleepers are green tanalised treated, which is a treatment that ensures a deep penetration of the wood preservative into the timber cells. This provides long-lasting protection against fungal decay, insect attack and rotting caused by water for up to 8-10 years. Tanalised wood has a green colouration initially which will fade to a honey brown and finally to a silvery grey. However, if you would prefer, you could stain these sleepers using our Barretine Wood Preserver.
It is possible to cut the sleepers using a circular saw, chainsaw or a handsaw – please bear in mind that any newly exposed cut surfaces will need treating with a wood preservative.
