HIRD Group is the official UK service partner for the KLP® Hybrid Plastic Bearers and Sleepers manufactured by Lankhorst Mouldings in The Netherlands.

KLP® Hybrid Plastic Sleepers have been developed as an effective and sustainable alternative to concrete, steel and timber sleepers, S&C bearers and bridge bearers.

Both concrete and steel sleepers must be installed and repaired using heavy lifting machinery; their weight and bulk present significant disadvantages when it comes to cost - in time, labour and money. Timber sleepers are extremely susceptible to wear and tear and they are increasingly being replaced with concrete or steel sleepers in areas where environmental conditions can warp, or rot timber.

The advantages of the KLP® Hybrid Plastic Sleepers include:

The material can be manipulated and machined just like wood
With an expected service lifespan of over 50 years, they are very durable
Easy to install and compatible with most fastening systems
Environmentally friendly, made from 100% recycled plastics

The different types of KLP® Hybrid Plastic Sleepers deliver low life cycle costs due to their very long lifespan.
