Oriented Strand Board OSB
Oriented Strand Board or OSB is an increasingly common sheet material used in construction. It is an engineered panel made from wooden strands laid across each other and glued using a variety of adhesives.
It is a cost effective engineered panel that possess good structural properties and can also be used as temporary facia and hoarding. It is said to have been invented by Armin Elmendorf in California in the 60's, where it continues to be manufactured and used in ballon frame timber structures. Today it is also manufactured in Canada and Eastern Europe and more recently in the UK.
