We stock Oriented Strand Board, or OSB as it is more commonly known. This is an engineered wood strand panel designed to be super strong, hardwearing, smooth and defective free, making it a superior alternative to some plywood’s available on the market.
Different qualities in terms of thickness, panel size, strength, and rigidity can be imparted to the OSB by changes in the manufacturing process. OSB panels have no internal gaps or voids, and are water-resistant, although they do require additional membranes to achieve impermeability to water and are not recommended for exterior use.
The finished product has similar properties to plywood, but is uniform and cheaper. It has replaced plywood in many environments. While OSB does not have a continuous grain like a natural wood, it does have a specific axis of strength. This can be seen by observing the alignment of the surface wood chips.
All wood-based structural use panels can be cut and installed with the same ease and types of equipment used with solid wood.

E0, E1 and E2. This classification is based on the measurement of formaldehyde emission levels. For instance, E0 is classified as having less than 3 milligrams of formaldehyde out of every 100 grams of the glue used in particleboard and plywood fabrication.
