Lumber protected like a deck.

Iron Stick® is made from the same species used for building decks, such as Ipe, Massaranduba, and Cumaru. This makes our stacking sticks last much longer than domestic species such as Ash and Oak. Need more proof on how durable and valuable our Iron Stick® is? Click or tap on the links below.
