Oak sleepers from Vastern Timber
The colour of oak is quite variable, ranging between pale yellow and dark brown. The surface of the sleepers is rough sawn. Ends will be trimmed but lengths will not be exact.
Oak sleepers will contain knots, surface splits and odd worm holes. There is no limit to defects providing the sleeper is sound. Because oak sleepers are of a lower grade, they are not suitable for structural applications.
When left outside the colour of the oak sleepers will change to a silver-grey.
Oak sleepers are hard and will require pre-drilling.
Oak contains tannic acid, which will corrode ferrous metals. All fixings used in conjunction with oak sleepers must be stainless steel. Tannic acid will stain any porous materials below the oak sleepers.
