Yellowhead Wood Products manufactures plain and grooved
lumber, known within the industry as dunnage. Dunnage is used at the
base of a package in association with metal or plastic banding to create
stable packaging for wood products being shipped throughout North America
Maximum and minimum thicknesses, widths and lengths
are manufactured according to buyers' specifications. Thickness varies
from 1 1/2 inch to 2 1/8 inch.
Competitors typically supply only 1 1/2 inch dunnage.
The advantages of our oversized dunnage are; easier handling due to
greater fork clearance and reduced scuffing of finished lumber and damage
to paper wrap.
Widths vary from 3 inch to 3 1/2 inch. Lengths are
according to the needs of the client. We currently manufacture 41 inch,
42 inch, 43 inch, 44 inch, 46 inch, 47 inch, and 48 inch lengths. Our
milled groove is 1 inch wide and 1/4 inch deep. A 3/8 inch radius edge
is manufactured onto the grooved face to provide for reduced paper tear
and easy end-loading of our customer's product into containers or vans.
