SMARTPLY OSB Panels
SMARTPLY Oriented Strand Board (OSB) is the versatile, cost effective and environmentally friendly alternative to plywood. It is manufactured by compressing precisely engineered strands of woods with exterior resins at high temperature to create an incredibly strong and versatile panel. SMARTPLY is made from sustainable, fast-growing timber, as MEDITE only use forest thinnings of new-growth pine and spruce, including the tops which are not used to make any other wood-based product.
This is one of the main reasons why SMARTPLY is increasingly being used instead of plywood, which by contrast use large logs cut from old forests.
They produce two grades of SMARTPLY: MAX and ULTIMA. Each is made with a specific resin, has no structural defects such as knotholes and core voids and is simple to work with. It cuts easily, will not delaminate, and can be bored, routed and planed with consistent results. Panels can be nailed 10mm from the edge without spilling or breaking out - critical to structural applications.
SMARTPLY OSB structural panels meet the criteria of today’s demanding construction standards. Manufactured to European Standard EN300, they satisfy BS5268 Part 2 (Structural uses of Timber - Code of practice for permissible stress design, materials, and workmanship).
