The Sleeper Hut Difference
What Makes Us Different?
All concrete sleepers are made with a unique and internally developed specified mixed design providing 50mpa minimum strength concrete by the time of installation. This ensures that the strength and overall quality of our product is not subject to uncontrolled curing methods or shrinkage cracking. All Sleeper Hut’s concrete sleepers have a minimum of two 12mm reinforcing bars installed to a maximum of 2m in any wall height and three 12mm reinforcing bars installed for the remainder of applications.
A vigorous auditing and quality assurance program are paramount to our continued efforts to improve and maintain our high standards of concrete sleepers.
This testing regiment includes 3- cylinder crack tests administered at 30mm intervals and reportable at 12-hours, 7-days, 14-days and 28-days, to ensure the integrity of our concrete is absolute.
Additional to concrete testing, The Sleeper Hut has dated manufacture and marking of each sleeper, which includes registered KPI tracking that can source every element of the production. Our products and internally driven design manuals are industry specific.
The Sleeper Hut products are manufactured locally and conform to all Australian standards.
Our minimum steel post prescription on any commercial project is 100 UCH 14.8 kilograms per meter – this ensures strength, provides optimal coverage of our sleeper ends and promotes the steel reinforcement in the concrete sleeper within the UCH channel.
We offer up to and inclusive of 25KPA wall designs for our concrete sleeper retaining walls and can provide specific design and engineering consultation for any project requirements.
