WHAT ARE RAILWAY SLEEPERS?

Railway Sleepers are made out of a wide range of timber types, a lot of the time it depends on which state they were made in and the timber that was on hand at the time. The most common timber types are Redgum, some Jarrah, Iornbark and Yellow Box. These Railway Sleepers come from all over Australia, depending on where the railway lines are being fixed and upgraded.

 

 

 

 

WHAT ARE THE SIZES AND WEIGHTS OF RAILWAY SLEEPERS?

The average Railway Sleeper weighs between 50-65kg each, depending on the grade. 
There is a variety of sizes available. The most common size is 2.1m long, 225mm wide and 125mm high/thick. We can get longer sleepers up 5m long and 150mm high/thick which are great for more structural uses such as outdoor entertaining and bigger landscaping projects..

 

 

 

 

WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES IN THE GRADES?

The Railway Sleepers are graded when they come into the holding yard. The condition of the sleepers determines the difference between AA, A, B and C.
AA Grade: Highest quality sleeper available, all corners square with little to no wear.
A Grade: All four corners in good condition, straight edges and very little wear.
B Grade: All four corners intact, some cracking and some structural wear.
C Grade: Well worn, some cracking and great for garden edging.
