Details

A retaining wall ‘SuperSleeper’ is a horizontal support beam, made of composite materials. SuperSleepers are used as the primary support of the wall structure. They can also be used in gardenbeds, pathways, and other landscaping features.

 

SuperSleeper™ is a game-changing composite material perfect for a wide range of retaining wall applications. It offers a complete retaining wall solution that includes post sleepers, fence brackets, top capping, and more.

 

Advantages Over Concrete Sleepers.
The key advantages of SuperSleeper™ over traditional concrete sleepers are numerous:

  1. Lightweight Nature: SuperSleeper™ weighs less than 6 kilos, making it significantly lighter than typical concrete sleepers, which are around 75 kilos. This weight reduction translates into substantial financial savings, including reduced labour, machinery, and logistics costs.
  2. Durability: SuperSleeper™ is engineered to last and meets a 60-year design life requirement for retaining walls. It is highly durable and can withstand the test of time.
  3. Ease of Installation: The lightweight nature of SuperSleeper™ makes installation faster and easier. It eliminates the need for heavy machinery and two-man lifts, resulting in approximately 30 to 40% faster installation compared to traditional methods.
  4. Flexibility: SuperSleeper™ can be cut easily using common tools like a circular saw or grinder, allowing for precise customization to fit various project requirements.

 

Features and Specifications:

  • Sizes: SuperSleeper™ comes in standard heights of 200mm with lengths of 2 meters and 2.4 meters.
  • Tongue and Groove System: The tongue and groove system between sleepers ensures a consistent and neat finish for retaining walls.
