ALDER SUPERIOR VOLUME 2.1 HARDWOOD INDUSTRIES INC. PROPRIETARY GRADING SPECIFICATIONS GUIDE PROPRIETARY GRADES SUPERIOR HI SUPERIOR CHOP SUPERIOR VENEER SUPERIOR PRIME SUPERIOR PRIME A B C 03 04 05 06 07 PAGE WHY PROPRIETARY GRADING Years ago in order to maintain some sort of standard the National Hardwood Lumber Association NHLA created grades for lumber that the industry has traditionally followed. The problem is there are so many different variations within each grade that many boards produce very low yields or are unusable for many customer applications. WE DO LUMBER DIFFERENTLY. THE JOURNEY FROM GOOD... TO GREAT REVOLUTIONARY See back cover for our new PROFIT PACK Small in size BIG in savings REMARKABLE Re-Manufactured Re-Graded Re-Tallied OUR SOLUTION At Hardwood Industries we created a proprietary grading system to give customers availability to lumber that can more specifically meet their needs. Our own NHLA trained graders follow a very rigid set of guide- lines in selecting boards based on our proprietary grades. If a board is of questionable grade we will rip or chop the board to improve the value. If we cannot improve the value we will downgrade the board to the next lower grade. Boards are graded for application instead of to a minimum standard. OUR ALDER GRADES The following pages show pictures representative of Hardwood Industries Brand grades of Alder. Select the grade that values best for your application. When the grade of Alder arrives at your facility you will see for yourself how a more refined grade will improve your profitability using HI Brand lumber. Our goal is to improve your yield reduce your labor reduce your inventory and minimize risk associated with your job REVOLUTIONARY PROFIT PACK. BIG in savings.
