What is Lagging and Shoring?

Lagging and Shoring is mixed hardwood used for support of excavation and other temporary protection applications.

What is the kind of wood used in lagging and shoring lumber?

It is usually mixed hardwood, which consists of oak, maple, gum, hickory, and poplar.

Can you deliver it to me on site?

Yes we can!

Why is the lumber available with random width?

Random width is commonly used for temporary protection because of the relatively lower cost associated with it. In most applications, there is a particular area that needs to be covered, so the width of the lumber does not often matter. This lumber tends to be cheaper, as well.

Does mixed hardwood have other uses beyond lagging and shoring?

Yes, it can be used for crane mats, deck mats, pallets, and ties. The higher grade lumber that is produced from mixed hardwood trees is often used for furniture and cabinetry.
