Certain customers require kiln dried sawn timber. Kiln dried sawn timber is also required as a material for MWTI’s timber moulding operations.
The kiln drying process reduces the moisture content of the sawn timber without damaging the structure and strength of the timber. In this process, the rough sawn timber is dried in oven-liked structures called kilns before they are rolled out for sale or further value added manufacturing. The kiln drying process takes between one and half weeks to six weeks depending on the species and thickness of the rough sawn timber.
