Ellpro Timber stock a variety of landscaping sleepers suitable for a multitude of uses, from small garden designs to full scale landscaping projects. We stock multiple grades of oak and supply several sizes and types of pressure treated softwood.
The pictures below give a fair representation of the appearance of our "standard grade" oak sleepers. Although the majority of sleepers in the pack will have a clear face and a clear side you can expect to see some wane and cracking. These features are normal and do not affect the integrity of the sleeper but customers should be aware when ordering.*
Our standard grade sleepers are predominantly produced using Quercus Cerris.
Customers requiring a higher standard of oak sleeper may wish to consider our "premium" option. We do not guarantee all edges and sides are 100% clear but the raw material is selected to try and minimise deep wane. Although some cracking may be present it will be minimal. End cuts are not always cut completely square. Once again the images below will give you a good idea of what to expect.
In addition to our standard and premium grade we offer French Oak sleepers. These are produced using the superior quercus robor species. The finer grain provides stable timber, less likely to open up in the long term. Some wane will be present but the selection process ensures this is minimal.
