OS Bracing Board

OSB – Oriented Strand Board is used for wall, roof and ceiling, interior design, shop fitting, warehouse and stage construction.

This environmentally sustainable bracing panel is a high quality, innovative structural design and manufactured specifically for the Australian building and construction industry.

The resin-bonded wood based panels made of oriented micro-veneers (strands). The strands are compressed into 3 or 4 layers, the surface layer strands are generally laid parallel with the long edges of the panel (“oriented”) while the core strands are ideally at right angles to the surface layer strands

The OS Bracing Board system has been engineered and tested to comply with the performance requirements of the Building Code of Australia (BCA). The design criteria are based upon AS 1684–1999 residential timber framed construction, which provides four simple bracing systems, offering up to 6 kN/m racking resistance.

OS Bracing Board is available as either an Untreated or Treated H2 panel. The H2 treated panel is suitable for use across Australia and is easily identified by a blue stamp.
