New OSB sample service from JOSB Done

Published:  08 July, 2011

ONLINE: JOSB Done, the industry-wide campaign to promote the uses and benefits of Oriented Strand Board (OSB), has launched a new sample order service on its website to get OSB into the hands of builders and specifiers who want to know more about the panel.

Alastair Kerr, director general of the Wood Panels Industry Federation (WPIF) and spokesperson for JOSB Done, commented: “We’ve been championing the use of OSB for all manner of construction projects, small and large, for six years now and the JOSB Done website is a very useful tool and one-stop-shop for all OSB related information.

“Knowing how useful builders, merchants and specifiers have found the website, and with OSB consumption continuing to rise due to its competitive price point, strength and reliability, we wanted to take things one step further. For anyone who wants to find out more about OSB and see a sample for themselves, all they need to do is visit and fill out their details.”

A cost-effective and sustainable solution to the everyday tasks that builders face, as well as a high quality, consistent and reliable on the job solution for large scale construction projects, OSB is becoming increasingly popular.

“A recent report BIS Shrapnel details an upturn in the global economy over the next five years with a general increase in the demand for OSB, driven mainly by housing construction and furniture manufacturing,” said Mr Kerr.

“This latest assessment paints a picture of great opportunity for the growth of OSB. Recognising that there has been a massive shift in favour of strong and sustainable wood panels in the last decade, the research indicates that this trend will continue and more countries will begin to benefit from its structural and environmental benefits.”
