TUFF-STIK

Don’t Settle for Wooden Kiln Sticks 

Temperatures required to dry lumber in softwood mills can be extremely high – breaking conventional kiln sticks after every turn. Without a proven alternative, mills are forced to use wooden kiln sticks that break constantly and jam machines.  

Tuff-Stik™ is the only stacker stick that can handle high temperatures without any shape deformity. Made with aluminum alloy, Tuff-Stik™ provides a service life of 500 or more turns. A mill using Tuff-Stik™ as their primary drying stick will save hundreds of thousands of dollars in labor and operating costs over conventional sticks.

Investing in Tuff-Stik™ empowers managers to operate mills with fewer issues and hazards:

  • Tuff-Stiks™ unique design allows air flow through the stick and seamlessly inside the stack, improving kiln efficiency;
  • The grooved edges around Tuff-Stik™ give it better gripping power so that lumber is secured in place and stays straight during drying;
  • Tuff-Stik™ is light, eliminates water staining and is 100% recyclable.
