History of Oriented Strand Board

    Evolving from waferboard in the late 1970s, OSB is unique in that long wood strands are oriented, not randomly placed. Since its debut in 1978, OSB has been rapidly accepted. In fact, in many areas of North America, OSB has virtually replaced other panels in new residential construction. Today, all model building codes in the U.S. and Canada recognize OSB panels for the same uses as plywood on a thickness-by-thickness basis.

What is OSB?


    Oriented strand board (OSB) is a performance-rated structural panel engineered for uniformity, strength, versatility and workability. It is utilized internationally in a wide array of applications including commerical and residential construction and renovation, packaging/crating, furniture and shelving, and do-it-yourself projects.
    Because it is engineered, OSB can be custom manufactured to meet specific requirements in thickness, density, panel size, surface texture, strength, and rigidity. This engineering process makes OSB the most widely accepted and preferred structural panel among architects, specifiers and contractors.

OSB in Construction

    Whether you’re working on plans for the home of your dreams, or carefully inspecting a prospective home for purchase, a basic understanding of oriented strand board and its applications will be a valuable tool in building or selecting a quality home. 
     First, when you look for OSB, you’ll find quality. OSB is fully engineered for strength and durability. That means each panel is specifically designed and tested to meet or exceed stringent quality standards. So when you ask for OSB in construction, you’re getting an engineered wood panel you can count on.
    Second, OSB means strength and durability throughout
your home. Thanks to its versatility, oriented strand board can be used in a wide variety of applications.
    · Walls - excellent strength and rigidity under all types of siding.
    · Roof Panels - uniformly sound and extra rigid to handle snow and wind loads.
    · Subfloors - strong, rigid and impact-resistant for underlayment, carpet or tile.
    · Single-Layer Floors - great for use directly under carpet, light-weight concrete or hardwood flooring.
    · Underlayment - uniformly thin, yet strong and finely sanded, OSB provides a smooth base for vinyl or tile.
    · Structural Insulated Panels - OSB foam-core panels offer high strength, R-value, and easy installation.
    · Floor Joists - OSB I-joists provide a high-quality support system that minimizes floor squeaking.
    · Rimboards - OSB rimboards add strength and rigidity to the floor system.
    Third, OSB is the economical, environmental option. Unlike other structural panels, OSB is made from smaller, faster-growing trees and is therefore easier and more readily available for harvesting. That means it’s less expensive to produce and helps preserve old-growth forests.
