Quality 

Frank Lumber has a reputation for manufacturing the highest quality lumber products in the industry.  In 1963 we were the first lumber manufacturer to install a CLT MSR machine.  This was done to improve grade recovery and help us fill a market niche in the high stress lam market.  We supported this direction by hiring a Quality Control Manager who was responsible for the development and training of highly competent lumber graders, as well as the oversight of our manufacturing and grading processes.  This commitment to quality continues to this day.

With the exception of hirakaku which is kiln dried down to a MC level of 19%, all of our products are dried down to a MC level of 15%, and are surfaced to the highest standards.  This ensures a very stable and consistent product that performs well in all markets, even in the driest and hottest regions of our country.  All products contain a KD HT stamp.  Our QC Manager takes daily lumber samples off the production line to verify grade, strength characteristics, and manufacturing details to ensure we are delivering the highest quality lumber products to our customers.   We utilize West Coast Lumber Inspection Bureau as our independent grading agency.  On a monthly basis, they perform a lumber check and inspect our records to ensure all the testing and grading systems we use are accurate.

We manufacture 2×4, 2×6 and 2×8 in 8’ – 20’ lengths.  For our international customers we produce 2×5 lam stock.  Also, we manufacture Hirakaku for the Japanese post and beam construction market.  Most of it is shipped to pre-cut plants, where lumber packages are assembled for single and multi-family housing projects.   Currently, we offer Hirakaku dimensions ranging from 105x105mm through 105x300mm in the following lengths:  3.0M, 3.65M, 4.0M, 4.8M, and 6.0M.  Other specialty products we offer are Fascia grade in 2×6, Select Dex in 2×6, j-grade and Cross-Arms in 4×6.

Most of our lumber gets hand wrapped in high quality paper that has a water proof exterior and cellulose interior which absorbs moisture.    Even the simple process of hand wrapping our lumber units gets extra attention to ensure that the wrap does not tear off in transit.
