UC4 Treated Sleepers

Are the garden sleepers you are buying described as pressure treated for longevity? This does not mean it they are suitable for sleepers and ground contact. Sleepers are primarily used with ground contact. Used for numerous garden and landscape purposes such as raised beds and retaining walls all sleepers should be treated to Use Class 4 BS 8417 table 4(link).

We stock garden sleepers which are treated to Class UC4 meaning they are suitable for close ground contact and come with a 30 year desired service life! Not the usual 15 years! We treat to UC4 and more!
