Laboratory Capabilities

The manufacturing plant is equipped with a lab to test products. We batch test daily to ensure that each shipment meets or exceeds industry standards and manufacturers’ guidelines. OHC utilizes the only TTMA approved testing unit for testing flatbed truck trailer flooring in the country. This testing unit allows us to follow the TTMA Recommended Practice procedure RP No. 67-03 for “Rating of Platform Trailer Floors for Lift Truck Loading.”

Other testing equipment includes a Tinius Olsen – Deflectometer Type D-2 which is calibrated and inspected annually by a Tinius Olson certified technician. This machine measures to various ASTM standards, including Modulus of Rupture and Hardness. A Leica EZ4 D Microscope allows us to inspect lumber up to 35x magnification to dissect whether our glued products meet our exacting standards. The microscope is a powered by a Windows computer which digitizes images for further magnification and sends pictures via email.

Our manufacturing facility is equipped with two 7.5 ton Deshazo Bridge Cranes, and Lancer and Combilift side loaders with extension forks to manage such long lengths safely.
