Hardwood timber sleepers are a flexible and vital propping component. Sleepers are used in a variety of underpinning applications and structural shoring systems and used in conjunction with acrow props, aluminium tilt props, multi-props, needle-beams and scaffolding.


Timber sleepers provide stability on loose or uneven surfaces, surface protection, load spreading and can be used in different formations such as grid patterns to form base pads or sole plates to support and spread the load on various surfaces. Sleeper timber is subjected to high stress loads and in ground contact and so must exhibit strength and durability.


Shore Hire can ensure supply of various sizes of hardwood sleepers no matter your project size.


Our timber sleepers have been used in a range of construction projects including Ultimo, Lilli Pilli, Double Bay, Vaucluse and St Leonards
