• OSB Manufacturing Innovation

Driven by market demand, shifting trends and changing legislation, SMARTPLY is continuously innovating by creating new products and technologies which are at the forefront of wood-based panel products and beyond the standard OSB.

With environmental impact considerations now a crucial requirement in modern buildings and Passivhaus construction methods growing in popularity across the UK and Ireland, SMARTPLY developed a new SMARTPLY PROPASSIV OSB panel to deliver outstanding levels of airtightness which meets these low energy and passive requirements. Fire safety is another essential building regulation and SMARTPLY FLAME RETARDANT OSB3 Euroclass C & B has been developed to combine strength and durability with outstanding fire performance.

The innovative SMARTPLY SITEPROTECT is a durable pre-primed coated panel specifically for temporary site hoarding and long term security applications, designed to save both installation time and money and a perfect fit for housebuilders and developers with a sustainable strategy. Used to provide support for fixtures and fittings in non-structural metal stud partitions, SMARTPLY DRYBACKER is an engineered OSB3 panel with zero added formaldehyde therefore making it ideal for environmentally sensitive interior applications such as hospitals, laboratories, museums and schools.
