Operational convenience and efficiency have been prioritized in the design of the ProDRY series of kilns. Strategically positioned above the kiln is a cutting-edge ‘Zero Footprint’ Control Room, providing access for monitoring and controlling the entire drying process. By eliminating the need for additional yard space, this innovative design optimizes the overall operational efficiency of the kilns, allowing lumber producers to streamline operations and maximize productivity.

Another standout feature of the ProDRY kilns is the inclusion of a unique ‘Weekend Helper’ staging area. In this enclosed staging area lumber producers can store and prepare multiple zones of lumber, enabling continuous kiln operation even during weekends and holidays. This feature not only maximizes productivity but also protects the lumber from the weather, ensuring the highest quality of dried lumber and providing producers with peace of mind knowing that kiln operations will continue uninterrupted.
