Sleepers

Railways has the full range of timber, treated and concrete sleepers 

For years old railway sleepers have been used to retain slopes in gardens. With garden designs changing over the years, the humble sleeper has also evolved.

No longer just the traditional, old railway sleeper, they're now constructed of newly sawn hardwood, treated timbers and concrete with a variety of fascias to suit most applications. Whatever the design or slope, Railways will help you find the perfect sleeper.

Some of our great brands include:

Hardwood Sleepers

Our Hardwood sleepers are sourced from sustainable re-growth forests in Queensland and consist of both Ironbark & red gum timber. Very dense & heavy duty timber perfect for retaining walls & garden edging.

Treated Pine Sleepers (H4)

Railways treated pine sleepers are H4 CCA treated. This higher level of H4 CCA (copper chromium arsenic) ensures that the timber is suited for both in, or on ground use therefore ideal for long term landscaping applications.
