European Hardwood - Oversized Lengths

These oversized bearers are direct from the railway lines in Europe and cannot be found elsewhere in New Zealand. 

The generous 300mm widths combined with the unusually long lengths from 2600mm to over 4600mm are a true rarity in railway sleepers. They are the perfect medium where beams are not suitable, but prominence is desired.
These pieces can be used in large, linear installations or together for robust practical functions such as walls and pergolas.

Made from historically mixed hardwood species with varying weathering and grades available. Bundles of these sleepers generally contain mixed and varied lengths, perfect for flexibility on site.
