SmartPly OSB3

Oriented strand board (OSB3)
'SmartPly OSB3 is an engineered, load-bearing wood-based panel product, free of knots and voids, and suitable for structural use in humid situations.

FSC certified SmartPly OSB3 is a safe and sound choice for the construction industry and is used extensively in timber frame housing and for flooring, wall sheathing, roofing, site hoardings, packing and the DIY sector.

Manufactured in Ireland, SmartPly OSB3 is sourced From locally managed forests that are independently certified to Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) criteria. Logs used to manufacture SmartPly OSB3 are a natural bi-product of the thinning process that takes place in managed woodlands to help it thrive. Only the smaller trees are selected to make SmartPly OSB3, leaving the larger, stronger trees to grow on for years and provide suitable raw material for the saw milling industry.

As the forests providing the logs are local to SmartPly Europe and the manufacturing of the FSC certified OSB boards takes place close to the UK construction market, the carbon footprint is minimised when it comes to transportation miles too. Consistent in quality and backed by the correct credentials, FSC certified SmartPlyOSB3 is a sound environmental Choice for Green specifiers.'
