Ekologix Garden Sleepers are made from over 90% reclaimed timber and recycled plastic. Its unique construction requires no maintenance when it comes to oiling and painting. Because Ekologix Garden Sleepers are designed for use in the ground (which contains moisture), bamboo has been excluded from the formula to reduce the risk of mould. The formula also has a higher percentage of anti-mould agents to further reduce this risk and helps the product last longer.
Unlike timber or pine sleepers, Ekologix Garden Sleepers require no special treatments to combat mould and termite damage. The plastic deters termites, and because Ekologix Garden Sleepers absorbs less water than timber, it is less likely to suffer from the effects of mould and mildew. Should any surface mould and mildew appear, it is easily washed away.
Our sleepers have been carefully engineered, designed and finished to look and feel like natural timber – but won’t fade, discolour or fade to grey like timber or pine sleepers. Ekologix Garden Sleepers are also equipped with Anti-UV technology to combat fading in sunlight, and helps keep the colour rich and looking great.
Splinters, warping and rot and decay are common problems associated with traditional timber sleepers. Ekologix Garden Sleepers eliminates these safety hazards, making them safe for children and pets.
Although Ekologix Garden Sleepers are a composite product, it does not contain toxic chemicals that are harmful to the environment. This makes them 100% safe for plants and won’t contaminate soil.
Our sleepers have been designed with the end consumer in mind, making them easy and versatile to use for a range of projects in your home. Some examples of applications or projects for Ekologix Garden Sleepers include:
