JOSB Done campaign website gets a fresh new look

Published:  07 July, 2010

UK: The JOSB Done campaign has championed the benefits and uses of Oriented Strand Board (OSB) for five years now and its one-stop-shop website has just been given a new look.

Live from early July, the new website has clear messaging, clear content and a clear aim – to be the industry’s most extensive and reliable online resource when it comes to OSB.

The website is divided into four key zones to make it simple for visitors to track down the information they need:

  • WHAT – all you need to know about OSB, how it is made, what it is used for and answers to frequently asked questions
  • HOW – all the ways in which OSB can be used
  • WHERE – detail on where to find OSB
  • ENVIRONMENTAL – information on OSB’s credentials, quality and recommendation by The Greenpeace Guide

There is also a dedicated news section where further information can be found on the uses of OSB within all manner of building work, including various case studies with merchants, builders and timber frame companies.

The JOSB Done initiative is supported by manufacturers SmartPly and Norbord, resin supplier Huntsman and the Wood Panel Industries Federation. Back for a fifth year, spreading the word about the uses and benefits of OSB as a versatile alternative plywood, the campaign is dedicated to addressing the issues of sustainability and the sourcing of environmentally sound timber panel products within the UK construction industry.
