Splitstone Concrete Sleepers
Splitstone concrete sleepers give the impression of a split rock and look great with any garden design, They are structural for retaining walls, steel reinforced with two 12mm steel bars. There is a choice of three colours available. Sealing with clear concrete sealer is an option once your wall is installed, by sealing the sleepers it will enhance the colour and protect it from possible staining although rock look sleepers tend to look more natural unsealed.
Splitstone sleepers have been designed with rebated ends for a flush finish when post covers are attached to hide the steel posts.

CLEANING CONCRETE SLEEPERS - Sometimes efflorescence may appear (white powder) after rain or heavy dew and frost. It is caused by the water evaporating out of the Concrete Sleepers and drawing salts and lime from the chemical composition of the concrete to the surface it is a natural thing concrete does, It is easily removed by washing the Concrete Sleepers Down with an acid solution.
Concrete Sleepers can be cleaned with 20 to 1 water to hydrochloric acid solution. Wet down sleepers first. Use a broom to apply the solution to the Sleepers. Apply the solution to the whole area so the concrete stays consistent. Be sure to cover up so acid doesn’t go on you. The stronger the solution, the coarser the Sleepers finish will become. Use lots of water to wash down cleaned area.
