Birkdale introduces the new FENCEMATE Sleeper Pin

Birkdale has introduced its new FENCEMATE Sleeper Pin to provide trade professionals with a durable, pre-galvanised option when securing and mounting timber railway sleepers; now a regular feature in UK gardens.

Whether creating pathways, raised beds or retaining walls, the sleeper pin is an easy way to ensure reliable support.

The new FENCEMATE Sleeper Pins are designed for swift installation and come in a 440mm length. Simply drive the stake into the ground where the sleeper will be placed using a rubber mallet or club hammer with a timber block, to protect the pin’s striking surfaces. Finish by screwing the bracket onto the single or double-layer timber sleeper that you would like to connect.

Birkdale would recommend installing approximately one pin for every one metre along the sleeper run for optimal support.

John Abernethie, Managing Director at Birkdale commented: “Using timber railway sleepers has become a popular trend in the UK as they are a practical, versatile and attractive way of creating planters, pathways and retaining walls.

“The FENCEMATE Sleeper Pin is the ideal solution when tackling any of these installations – it’s a go-to option that will provide a secure and durable connection.”
