Oriented Strand Board (OSB) is an engineered panel product alternative to plywood. It is manufactured by pressing three layers of wood strands together under high temperature and pressure. The result is a highly durable, rigid and reliable board that can be drilled, sanded, sawn, stained, painted and planed.
OSB is very similar to plywood but has a number of added benefits. Firstly, OSB doesn't suffer from defects such as weak areas and knots as it is made from wood strands. Secondly, it can be manufactured from environmentally friendly, fast growing wood species and can be recycled at the end of its life.
Our OSB2 panels are strong precision-engineered boards ideal for structural use in load-bearing dry conditions. The tougher OSB3 panels are ideal for use in construction in humid conditions.
