Tyler, TX (May 16, 2017) – Big Tex Trailers now offers Blackwood Lumber as an upgrade on all flatbed trailer models. Big Tex reached an agreement with Industrial Wood Technology (IWT), the manufacturer of Blackwood Lumber, in January and began preparing for the May rollout.

“We’re excited to offer this great new option to our customers,” said National Director of Sales for Big Tex Trailers, Johnathan Bradley.

IWT manufactures Blackwood Lumber using the highest quality lumber, infused with industrial grade rubber. This patent pending product provides superior traction on any surface it’s applied to. Even in wet conditions, Blackwood Lumber prevents slipping and makes loading equipment safer and easier.

“When considering partners to help us provide innovative and creative solutions and features for our products, we look for companies that produce quality products and provide excellent customer service,” Bradley said. “We feel that IWT exemplifies those qualities and look forward to a long partnership with them.”

Along with increased traction, the rubber infusion absorbs heavy impact and protects the surface of the board from weathering. This makes Blackwood Lumber stronger and longer lasting than typical decking.

Blackwood Lumber is ideal for any surface that benefits from added traction, strength and durability. This includes boat docks and residential, commercial and industrial ramps and decks, as well as flatbed and livestock trailers.
