Precast sleepers are commonly used by the rail systems and have replaced steel or wooden sleepers in many rail networks. Precast sleepers last longer than wooden sleepers and do not need to be treated with chemicals. Precast concrete is a versatile product and any shape or size that exsists in other types of sleepers can be substituted with a precast concrete sleeper.

Concrete sleepers can be supplied ready for laying straight from the factory, meaning that all the reinforcing can be built into the sleeper and prestressed in accordance with any required or specified standards.
