Low Grade Lumber

Low Grade Lumber: What is it and is it for you?

Are you a pallet manufacturer looking to reduce costs for your pallet wood material? Low-grade lumber is an excellent choice. This wood product has a wide range of sizes, grades, and species and available just about anywhere. Pallet, crate, and dunnage manufacturers must find a competitive advantage in the ever-expanding world of shipping.

Low-grade lumber is an industrial graded wood which can be softwood lumber or hardwood lumber. It is available in many sizes, from 1×4 and 1×6 through common dimensional lumber sizes like 2×4, 2×6, and 2×12, and larger. The product typically has more wane and knots than higher wood material that is used for residential construction making it a great option for applications not requiring visual aesthetic quality.

Traditionally, low-grade lumber is used in pallets, crates, dunnage, and cut-to-size industrial manufacturing components. It may be pressure-treated wood, or kiln-dried lumber, or green lumber that hasn’t been treated. For many industrial applications, low-grade lumber proves to be a much cheaper source of materials without losing the structural integrity required. 

Finding the right wood supply for the best lumber prices is easy.
