Further information

European oak is a premium hardwood, making these oak railway sleepers remarkably strong and durable.  As the longest-lasting railway sleepers we offer, these sleepers have a lifespan of up to 25 years. Slow-grown in colder European climates, these oak railway sleepers are made from naturally dense timber that is more resistant to rot, making them a popular choice for professional landscaping applications.

As a naturally dense timber, European oak railway sleepers do not require treating with a preservative, however, you can oil or stain to suit your needs and preferences with our Wood Treatments & Preservatives. If you decide to leave the European oak railway sleepers untreated, then the European oak will silver beautifully with age, creating incredible rustic sleepers.

These sleepers are sawn from organic timber that has not undergone any drying process leaving it to naturally season over time. This means they may have waney edges, will split, and may move over time - like all oak, but this is part of the natural beauty of the product. Large cracks, splits and irregularities are to be expected with this product - it is not kiln-dried, but green oak, meaning they are fresh, new oak railway sleepers cut down within the last year. Given the expected irregularities with this product, it is not recommended for construction, but for landscaping.
