Railway Sleeper Bench …
Super-heavy and steeped in history …
Made from genuine sections of Reclaimed Railway Sleepers that have come to the end of their useful working life on the railways across Indonesia.
This becomes more apparent when you consider the super-impressive dimensions of our Railway Bench – the arms and legs alone are both well over 10cm’s in width.
The seat depth is 65cm which is nearer day bed proportions when you think about it.
A rustic and simple outlook to the design …
This works fantastically well and produces a bench that has massive presence and is thickly set for regular use.
Mortice and Tenon joints are used in the construction and these are further strengthened with the use of teak dowels to guard against that unsightly and unsafe ‘wobble.’
Even though reconditioned after its reclamation from the railways the teak is still dense in nature and abundant in oil content giving it the same natural protection against the elements as other high grade teak harvested freshly from the forest.
In fact, you could say it’s of a higher quality due to its exposure to the elements in previous use.
Each one is completely unique by the very nature of their construction …
Over time it will assume a silver-grey patina as it ages. This can be removed for cosmetic purposes if you prefer the golden hue associated with newer teak.
You may want to look at our Teak Care Advice before doing this.
The Railway Bench fits the bill environmentally as well. By reclaiming the timber local crafts-people are reducing the amount of teak taken directly from the forest which is a positive reaction to environmental concerns across Indonesia.
We have a friendly Sales Team in the Midlands who are always on hand to answer any questions.
