Products / Services Summary

Oriented Strand Board
Oriented Strand Board (OSB) that is conditioned for structural applications in humid environments.

In comparison to Medium Density Fibreboard (MDF), Chipboard and other plywood alternatives, OSB sacrifices a smooth surface for enhanced mechanical performance by using longer strands of wood.

The trade term OSB/3 comes from the technical class denoted in BS EN 300 for ‘load-bearing boards for use in humid conditions’. Humid in this instance meaning environments where boards are protected from external conditions but moisture content can increase because of humidity.

Typical Applications

  • Roof decking
  • Roof sarking
  • Wall sheathing
  • Flooring
  • Packaging
  • Site Hoarding
  • Signboards
  • Portable Buildings
