  • A very good sleeper that is easily handled cut and modified on site.
  • Grade: A Grade - NEW
  • Colour: Chestnut brown that will fade to a drift wood color.
  • Treatment: Non-Treated. Suitable for all uses.
  • Description: Top and sides are generally square with minor weathering. The four sides are well defined. Minor Wane (outer log surface) could be present.
  • About: Due to these sleepers not having been placed in a railway network they do not have the grit , dirt and stones that can be embedded in used sleepers, making them ideal for projects that require adaptable timber that is simple to cut and easy to work with on designs to specification. Consistency in colors, size, shape & weathering.
  • Using product: Cutting, drilling and using fasteners is possible on these sleepers with preferably commercial tools and equipment. Perfect for serious DIY projects and commercial applications. Stainable and sand-able (machine sanding) for a richer, sleeker finish. Takes well to regular oiling.

  • 2.1m - 69.50 +GST & 2.75m - 89.50 +GST
 
  • Facts/ myth debunking:Dense, tight grained, hardwood railway sleepers, especially tropical timbers, are completely different to light, softwood railway sleepers which have to be treated with either creosote or pressure treatment to prevent them rotting and collapsing. Hardwood railway sleepers are much more durable and naturally longer lasting.
    • ---African Azobe railway sleepers, for example, are often used untreated by British Waterways under water, due to their natural preservative qualities. Jarra, Karri, Mora, and Greenheart are likewise placed untreated on the railway track by Network Rail, and are expected to last for up to 100 years.
    • ----So, untreated railway sleepers are popular with those wanting to keep clear of chemical treatments, or contamination, and wanting to use something that is naturally very long lasting. An original used Australian hardwood railway sleeper. Not treated with any preservation chemicals due to the natural durability of the Australian hardwoods.
    Jarrah and Iron bark are the well-known Australian hardwoods, however 23 hardwood species are certified for use in the Australian railway networks, from Grey River Red gum, Tallow wood to Mahogany for example. Which are timber species that are far more durable or higher in strength ratings than Jarrah and Ironbark. Other hardwood species that are logged through out the world in the 21st century are border line if not illegal in their logging operations, Purple and Green heart timbers used in wharf structures from the north east areas of South America “Suriname ‘  or Azobe hardwoods from the African Congo up to Cameroon region . Where the international certification FSC*  struggles to police and regulate logging legally. Australian however works with their own specific sustainability legal requirements set up and strongly enforced by the Australian Federal Government.  Use Australian hardwoods and help protect the fragile Rain forest timbers of our world. *(Forest Steward Council; FSC is an independent, non-governmental, not for profit organization established to promote the responsible management of the world's forests)

  • Facts/ myth debunking: The idea of a main trunk railway between Auckland and Wellington had been talked about since the 1860s, but during the Vogel era of the 1870s rail-building efforts were focused elsewhere in the colony. By 1880, Auckland's southern line reached as far as Te Awamutu, and isolated sections had been built in Taranaki, Manawatū, Hawke's Bay, and between Wellington and Wairarapa. Between southern Waikato and Manawatū lay thousands of hectares of rugged country, volcanic mountains, deep ravines, dense forests and Māori land. On 15 April 1885 Premier Robert Stout, Wahanui Huatare and Rewi Maniapoto ceremonially turned the ‘first sod' of the central section at Pūniu, near Te Awamutu. Despite high hopes, it would take another 23 years of exploration and surveying, parliamentary enquiries, and sheer hard work to complete the main trunk. Fast track to today, the network is now in the best condition it has been in for a number of years following more than $549.3 million in network upgrades and improvements. It is these upgrades & improvements that now allow us to re-gift life back to these historically rich railway sleepers. NZ sleepers are the most cost effective sleeper for their size and ability to lift cut and modify easily. The preservation treatment is to H5, near to marine grade requirements and so durability is assured. This high rating of H5 makes the NZ sleeper not suitable for seats or set in concrete as partitions for your concrete expansion allowance, unless out of the sun as the preservation treatment has been reported to come to the surface in very hot summer conditions. Around vegetable use polythene or a hardwood sleeper. However for all other uses particularly in semi-rural or large garden designs these are the best sleeper to use on any such projects due to their ease of handling and versatile uses with durability assured.

  • About: These are big Hardwood timbers made up of jarrah, ironbark and other royal Australian hardwood species brought into NZ 30 to 50 years ago. The big and impressive factor is what also hinders the supply ability as new timber is to cost effective to mill at these dimension any more, with laminated timber and steel ‘I’ beams etc taking their place. Further the old trees that can provide 400 x 400 dimension heart quality timber are either protected (hopefully) or non existent in the approved logging areas of Australia. Their lives as wharf structures, bridge bearers or railway structures are over but they are available in rustic form to offer a second life.

No beams of these sizes are manufactured any more in commercial quantities and to obtain square rustic timbers is already very rare. Even obtaining consistently the same dimensions is extremely difficult. Please understand used beams are not off the shelve supply. Architects and designers are best to contact Interlink Ltd first to see what beams are available. Talk to us early in your designs, allow time and usually using several different beams of differing dimensions . For example 300mm x 300mm width requests can be substituted for 340mm x 280mm widths, yet the big impressive style is still successfully achieved.

    • Facts/ myth debunking: In 2012 New Zealand First MP Brendan Horan was calling for heads to roll at KiwiRail, despite the state-owned company saying it is responding responsibly to the discovery of a batch of rotting railway sleepers. Kiwirail Chief Executive Jim Quinn responded with a commission of independent DNA testing. "Test results just received by us on a consignment of sleepers contained at one of our workshops indicated that two of the fungus types are new to New Zealand. Testing confirmed that these pose no danger to humans and the Ministry of Primary Industries (MPI) is currently investigating whether the fungus poses any biosecurity risk.However, we are now taking extra steps as recommended by MPI to sanitize and contain the sleepers we are systematically removing from the network." "Until we have resolved a disposal strategy with MPI we will be applying a household bleach solution to the sleepers as they are removed from the network and then keep them covered as we transport and store them." "The results of the testing that found potentially unwanted fungus types only relate to the consignment of sleepers that are being held at our workshop. The initial testing we commissioned on sleepers on the network found they contained a fungus common to New Zealand.Despite this we are implementing a no-risk approach. Even if it turns out the sleepers we are removing don't contain the unwanted fungus type, the extra measures we are taking are a responsible move."

  • Interlinks comments / notes: The used hardwoods this thick are becoming more and more difficult to source, what is obtained goes out the door fairly fast. It is good that Australian hardwoods from decades ago imported into NZ are getting  a second lease of life in NZ gardens, as again their durability and rustic appeal is fantastic.
  • Delivery & logistics: Bundle of 16 = 1120 kg minimum tandem trailer size with adequate tow bar rating is advisable, commercial light to heavy truck is ideal.
  • Facts/ myth debunking: Not all sleepers are naturally durable, in fact most are creosote treated and certainly anything from the USA has chemical applications applied. Australian hardwoods are the only railway sleepers commercially manufactured that don’t require chemical preservation, du e to their natural durability. And now with concrete and composite plastic sleepers being used on Australian railway networks the hardwood sleepers are becoming more and more rare and difficult to secure. If we have them now, then plan ahead and get your project well thought out and know what you require early.
The enjoyment and warmth that old timbers bring to a setting is quite unique, it is not settle and glass but instead a resounding depth of stability and quality.

UK Oak Sleepers – 2.8M & 3.4M A Grade

2.6m: 78.50 /  2.8m: 88.50 / 3.4m: 134.78 [All Ex GST]
Top and sides are square with rustic weathering. Four square sides are square but can have wane (outside log shape).
Ideal for raised gardens, edgings, vertical designs and prominent feature areas.
Brown in colour.
A good tidy used rustic sleeper for its value at extra length of 3.4m
Creosote treatment, has been done on these we have been told, but visually not apparent.
 
  • Grade: A Grade
  • Weight: 2.6m are  75- 80 KG each. 2.7m are 85 -90kg each. 3.4m are  95-100 KG each.
  • Dimensions: 2600mm, 2800mm & 3400mm x 250mm x 150mm
  • Colour: A dark Umber brown with darker shades mixed through
  • Treatment: Creosote treatment has been applied on these we have been told, but visually not apparent. Due to the colder conditions in Europe mean timber growth is slower and hence the wood is more dense and unable to be pentarted by preservation treatments as much as for example softwoods such a NZ  Pinus radiata.
  • Description: Top and sides are square . Four square sides are generally square, these are used railway sleepers so imperfections from years of use will be present. Rustic weathering provides a aesthetic softly-roughened like texture. A great length at 2.6m to 3.4m offering extra value and utility. 
  • About: These sleepers are big and solid, makes for a prominent display of beautifully aged/weathered hardwood for any specification. The durable treated oak makes them robust and very durable, expect a lifetime of use from these.
  • Using product: Can be installed to a high standard to feature permanently and to hold its original features long term. Solid enough for almost any use, together or individually. Steps, entrances, quality retaining walls and prominent features where quality is wanted to be portrayed. Very popular for pergolas, outdoor entertainment areas, equestrian fences and jumps.
  • Interlinks comments / notes: Ideal for DIY and high quality architectural projects, both offering similar results, a wonderful feature trim to compliment larger spaces to create a calm, soft and beautiful hardwood finish. Makes for outstanding feature displays like pergolas. The over sized length of these sleepers comes from where rail tracks spilt (called turnouts) and hence wider sleepers and required. And only for a short distance, hence the 2.8m to 3.4m are hard to source and equally maintain stock levels once arriving into NZ from Europe.
  “Hi Matthew, Just wanted to drop you a mail to say thank you so much. We received our sleepers on Thursday morning. The quality of the product is awesome and they have already received positive comments from the neighbours, can’t wait to get them in place  as the centre piece of our newly landscaped section. But mostly I wanted to thank you for the excellent customer service you showed us, prompt, helpful, going the extra step to get the sleepers to us. Really appreciate it! Best regards Gary, Whakatane June 2018 “            
  • Delivery & logistics: Different bundle sizes exist , but these are heavy and big very big as far as sleepers go. Pickup should be a light commercial flat deck truck or larger  (minimum 1 ton / 1.1M3)
Facts/ myth debunking: Europe has an authentic appeal and its locally produced products have an air of quality. Railway sleepers may not be high end fashion, however the engineers and timber sawmillers do have strict standards and this is reflected in the longevity of the sleepers and the better quality that comes out of Europe. Likely due to the colder temperatures slow a trees growth and hence the timber growth rings are tighter , making a far more solid and dense timber that  last the test of time and are still well intact to grade as A to AA quality. Equally the Europeans do not fell vast areas of forests but selectively harvest their forest.. In fact Europe as more forests now than 100 years ago ” 100 years ago, timber was used for almost everything: as fuel wood, for metal production, furniture, house construction. Hence, at around 1900 there was hardly any forest areas left in Europe. Especially after World War II, many countries started massive afforestation programs which are still running today,” ( The Washington Pos.) A little step towards helping sustain the timbers of Europe.

Testimonials

“I found Interlink excellent to deal with. They had a range of products and sufficient stocks to make specifying the job easy. The rustic character of the timber is perfect for some sites and is often a striking complement to other materials and plants. I would specify materials to be supplied by Interlink again.” Paul Quinlan, Landscape Architect Ltd.

“I just wanted you to know that we picked up the sleepers on Saturday morning with no problems at all. The guys at PBT were great!”

“Thanks for all your help in organising the delivery to Rotorua, it was really appreciated.” Christine
