Oriented Strand Board (OSB)

Oriented Strand Board (OSB) is a structural panel product produced by bonding together thin wood strands with adhesive.

Oriented Strand Board (OSB) is a product that has been manufactured and used successfully in North America for decades, but has only been available through Australian suppliers in the past decade.

OSB is a structural panel product produced by bonding together thin wood strands with adhesive. A wax may be added to the resin to increase the moisture resistant properties. The strands are generally oriented with the grain direction in the major longitudinal direction in the outer layers and in the cross direction in the inner layers of the sheet to provide panel dimensional stability. Once in place, the strands will form a large continuous mat. The mat is then heat and pressure cured, which helps to create a uniform finish.

It has similar properties to plywood, yet is generally more cost-effective to produce and is also stronger than particleboard. OSB can be used for internal and external applications.

Design properties for OSB are proprietary so manufacturers of OSB can provide the relevant specifications. OSB is not currently produced in Australia.

Panelling, Interior

Timber panelling creates interiors as warm as they are stylish. Commonly using an MDF or plywood substrate, internal timber paneling is natural and versatile and comes as either solid natural timber panels or as sheets of engineered wood products

Structural Insulated Panel Systems (SIPS)

SIPS are a modern alternative to traditional timber framed construction and function as the structural element for walls, roofs, and suspended floors. They consist of two outer layers of Oriented Strand Board (OSB) sandwiched around an Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) core.
