An Environmentally Friendly Building Material



Rumber® is a truly remarkable product. This is a military grade material. And we mean that literally. We are currently selling to the U.S. Army for it's grenade training ranges. Previously they had a plywood wall along the trench to keep shrapnel  from flying back at the soldiers. Each day they had to rebuild 1000' of wall. They've been throwing grenades at a Rumber wall for over a year now without failure. This is TOUGH STUFF. 

Basically it is available in two forms:

  1. Extruded lumber profiles of S4S and T&G in 2x4, 2x6 and 2x8. Colors are black, gray and brown. Smooth and high traction (buffed) surfaces.
  2. Sheet goods: Thickness of 1/8" to 1/2"; a small variety of textures. Generally 4'x8' sheets but custom runs up to 77" wide and 144" long can be made.
