Don’t wait for your wooden sleepers to collapse. Our concrete sleepers are specially engineered for the homeowner to install and are the perfect landscaping feature for low walls.

Wooden sleepers without the problems of wood

Australian backyards have used wooden sleepers as retaining walls for decades. But, over time wood rot, pressure and insect infestation have taken a toll.

Can backfilling occur before the core filling?

No.

Core filling must occur first and be allowed to set before backfilling can occur.

The setting of the core fill only takes three days, and then backfilling can occur.

Can the 400 series components be used for marine walls?

No, this is because the core fill does not provide sufficient cover for reinforcing steel to meet marine standards for wall construction.

Our 600 series should be used to provide sufficient cover.
