I WOOD LICENSING PROGRAM COMING SOON! Click here!
I Wood technology uses pre-cut, profiled lumber that fits together like Lego ™ blocks.
The component parts are packaged in kits. The kit homes or relief shelters can be assembled by unskilled people with just an electric screw-driver, or an old-time brace and bit where power is unavailable.
This innovative approach makes it possible for non-tradespeople to assemble tiny homes, sheds, shelters, cabins, workshops, utility buildings, greenhouses and portable structures.
I Wood housing kits can be designed in a range of sizes that are expandable and portable.
~They provide superior protection against inclement weather and a safe secure structure in which a family can sleep, eat and begin to rebuild their lives with dignity.
~The profiling process also generates valuable bi-product in the form of wood chips which are suitable for particle board, pulp or wood pellet production.
~By utilizing profile lumber technology, sawmills can realize up to 30% greater value from high volume operations.
~Higher yield than traditional lumber by using smaller diameter trees.
~Provides significant environmental benefits over concrete and traditional lumber.
~Offers sawmills an opportunity for higher value-add exports.
