Tanalised Railway Sleepers

Tanalised railway sleepers are perfect for all landscaping situations, giving an authentic timber look, but pressure treated with environmentally friendly wood preservative.

This makes the timber suitable for children’s play areas, raised vegetable beds, steps, fencing, kerbing and decking.

Timber that is to be tanalised is first de-barked and profiled before being dried to a sufficient level for the liquid tanaliser preservative to permeate it. The wood is then treated to a particular level dependant on species and end use. The permeatation levels of the preservative are dictated by the wood species and it’s associated hardness. By treating the wood in a high pressure tanalisation chamber it’s ensured that the treatment can be absorbed much further than it otherwise would into the timber. Please watch the below video for a full explanation of the tanalisation process.

Reclaimed Railway Sleepers For Sale

Cheaper than tanalised sleepers, reclaimed sleepers are taken from railway tracks after the end of their industrial life and suit a variety of purposes:

  • Landscaping projects
  • Retaining walls
  • Raised beds
  • Steps
  • Curbing
  • Edging

They are more restricted in their applications due to previous use, but all our reclaimed sleepers are ideal for decorative purposes and available in the highest quality Grade 1.

What Should I Use?
