Fabulous experience and very friendly, very helpful staff. This is the only concrete sleeper company that I found that can mould custom (non-standard length) sleepers to your specific length requirements and/or will cut sleepers to size. This company actually manufactures all the sleepers on site and supplies many others. The list prices here are very competitive - saved an absolute bundle compared to the other local companies out there.

Do you deliver?

Sunset Sleepers delivers concrete sleepers across all of Victoria and we can even organise interstate freight for delivery if required. Our most common delivery areas are in the Greater Melbourne suburbs, but if you want to know for sure whether we can delivery to your suburb, please call the Sunset Sleepers office from Monday to Friday during 7:30am to 4pm on 0410 818 242.

What if I need to change my order or change a delivery booking?

Changing your order is simple. Just call the Sunset Sleepers office from Monday to Friday during 7:30am to 4pm and talk to one of our office staff about your order. Please note all changes should be made at least 24 hours before delivery.

How will I know when my order is due to arrive on site?

You will receive a call from one of our staff the day before your delivery is due. On the day of delivery we will be able to give you an ETA, although please understand that some factors can affect your delivery time on the day such as weather, traffic, and previous delivery. We always strive to get our deliveries out as quickly and efficiently as possible.

What do I do if I have over-ordered?

Sunset Sleepers DOES NOT accept any returns of concrete products due to transport and handling.

Do I have to be on site to take receipt of my delivery?

No, you do not have to be on site to take delivery, as long as there’s clear instructions outlined on the day before for Sunset Sleepers staff on where to place your delivery.

Can we pick up sleepers and steel from your factory?

Yes, of course. We will load your order straight onto your truck or trailer.

Can I build my own retaining wall?

Yes, you can build your own retaining wall. Be sure to research what is needed for a successful and up to code retaining wall.

How much does a retaining wall cost?

Product cost does vary due to the size and variation of the wall. Feel free to call the Sunset Sleepers office from Monday to Friday during 7:30am to 4pm on 0410 818 242 and our staff would be happy to provide you with installer details, to give you the full install and product cost.

How difficult is it to install concrete sleepers?

Concrete sleepers are heavy, so installation can be difficult. Sunset Sleepers can provide solutions to help with installation such as Grab hire for $25 a day.

Do Concrete Sleepers require painting?

No. Concrete sleepers do not require painting, although to give them a darker look you are able to use a concrete sealant.

How long will Concrete Sleeper last?

Concrete sleepers have a lifetime guarantee.

Can I cut concrete sleepers?

Yes, you are able to cut concrete sleepers but keep in mind that they do have two N-12 bars inside of them. We recommend using a demolition saw with diamond cutting blade to cut through the concrete sleepers.

What about the upright posts?

Sunset Sleepers provide most steel sizes starting from 100uc14. We also supply H-beam, C-beam, 90-deg corners and 45-deg corners. Our stock lengths start from 900mm and increase in 300mm increments.

Why should I spend more on concrete sleepers rather than timber sleepers for my retaining wall?

Concrete Sleepers have many benefits over their timber counterpart. There are many designs and colours to choose from and there’s even one that looks like a timber sleeper (‘The Malibu’ Woodgrain Textured Concrete Sleeper). They won’t warp, twist, significantly alter in appearance or rot and can’t be eaten by termites.

Initially, concrete sleepers may be more expensive than timber sleepers, but depending on the height of the wall they can actually be a cheaper alternative as they’re stronger. For the long term it’s a no-brainer, as a timber sleeper wall WILL need to be replaced at some stage and who wants to build a Retaining Wall twice?

Do I need council approval to build a retaining wall?

Retaining walls above 1 meter must have council approval. If council approval is required, it is because a retaining wall may pose a danger to people or the environment around it unless it is properly constructed.

The only way to ensure that it does not is to have the wall designed and approved by professionals. In some areas, you will need to engage the services of a structural engineer.

In this case, you will need to:

  1. Lodge a building application.
  2. Have a qualified drafter or architect draw your plans or an engineer
  3. Hire a building certifier, who will approve your plans and make periodic inspections to ensure the retaining wall is being built according to specifications.

If you think your retaining wall may need council approval, it is probably a job best left to the experts.

What if I don't obtain council approval for my retaining wall?

In Victoria, a building permit is needed for retaining walls over 1 meter high. The landowner is responsible for ensuring a building permit is obtained and must ensure the person in charge of the building work has a copy of the approval.

If they don’t have a building permit, an enforcement notice can be issued requiring the landowner to comply with any building requirements imposed which may involve removing or demolishing the structure.

A breach of the building Act is serious and illegal building work can require a landowner to attend the Magistrate’s Court. Notification of current/recent illegal work may be sent to the “Municipal Building Surveyor”.

How heavy are Concrete Sleepers?

Concrete sleepers vary in weights. They start from 65kg for a 1800 x 200 x 80, to 125kg for a 2400 x 200 x 120.

Sleepers Size (mm) Weight (per unit)
1800 x 200 x 80mm 65kgs
2000 x 200 x 80mm 80kgs
2400 x 200 x 80mm 95kgs
1800 x 200 x 100mm 80kgs
2000 x 200 x 100mm 95kgs
2400 x 200 x 100mm 110kgs
1800 x 200 x 120mm 95kgs
2000 x 200 x 120mm 110kgs
2400 x 200 x 120mm 125kgs

What sizes are available for Concrete Sleepers?

Our stock sizes are 1.8m , 2m and 2.4m. However, we can make custom sizes if required for an extra fee. Please call the Sunset Sleepers office from Monday to Friday during 7:30am to 4pm on 0410 818 242 if you require any custom size concrete sleepers.

How high can I safely go with my retaining walls?

Each sleeper has a maximum height retained for engineering purposes.

Sleepers Size (mm) Maximum Retained (height)
1800 x 200 x 80mm 2.4m
2000 x 200 x 80mm 2.2m
2400 x 200 x 80mm 1.4m
