Further information

UC4 Railway Sleepers are large, sawn cut sleepers that have undergone a vigorous tanalised pressure treatment that protects the wood against rotting and damp.  This UC4 treatment involves the timber being kiln-dried to reduce the moisture content to around 28%, before preservative is then added to the timber whilst under hydraulic pressure to ensure a deeper penetration of the preservative than standard UC3 treatments.  This more in-depth treatment gives the railway sleepers an extra long life of up to 15 years. 

These railway sleepers have a green colouration initially which will fade to a honey brown and finally to a silvery grey over time when exposed to the sun.  However, if you would prefer, these sleepers can be easily stained to suit your aesthetics with our Barrettine Wood Protective Treatment.  It is also advised that this treatment is applied if the railway sleepers are cut - using a circular saw, chainsaw or handsaw - as newly exposed cut surfaces will otherwise be exposed.

Available in our most popular length, 2.4m, these railway sleepers can be used for a variety of other landscaping and applications, with softwood sleepers being most popular for gardening.
