Oriented Strand Board

Oriented Strand Board

OSB is manufactured from waterproof heat-cured adhesives and rectangularly shaped wood strands that are arranged in cross-oriented layers, similar to plywood. This results in a structural engineered wood panel that shares many of the strength and performance characteristics of plywood. Produced in huge, continuous mats, OSB is a solid panel product of consistent quality with no laps, gaps or voids.

Engineered specifically for sheathing the exterior of residential, commercial and industruial timberframed structures. Replaces plywood bracing and provides structural strength that meets new siesmic bracing standards.

11.1mm/16 inch metric sized Panels range in size from 2400x1200 to 2400x 6000

The beauty of sheathing a home in OSB is that its not only stronger, but it provides for superior insulation.

Combined with our BIOFOAM spray foam, you can get an immensly strong structure and get Thermal Comfort thats equal to that achieved using Structural Insulated Panels. Our partner company Plasticraft ltd (www.plasticraft.co.nz) can spray biofoam in open and closedcell bio foam.

Unlimited Applications

OSB is widely used in residential and commercial construction, and is gaining popularity in markets such as materials handling and the manufacturing of upholstered furniture. The manufacturing process makes it possible for panel makers to add innovative features such as a slip-resistant texture to panels designed for roof sheathing, and to supply oversized and metric panels.

For Detailed and Technical Information

Detailed and technical information on OSB can be found in the OSB section of the APA publications store. Here you will find a complete listing of all APA publications featuring OSB, including case studies, technical sheets, builder tips and more. Many of these publications can be immediately downloaded for free. This section is searchable by keyword.

Environmentally Smart

OSB panels can be manufactured from a wide range of fast-growing species and from relatively small trees. The production process utilizes a maximum amount of wood fiber from each tree that is harvested, and because the process is very highly automated the yield of finished product is very high.
