The Versatility of OSB Panels in 12 Projects

The Versatility of OSB Panels in 12 Projects

OSB (Oriented Strand Board) can be easily recognized for its distinctive appearance. This material consists of cross-oriented layers of wood strands compressed and bonded together with resin, applied under high pressure and temperature. As a result, the standardized panels have great stiffness, strength, and stability, and are often used as wall cladding attached to the steel frame of a building or as partitions. Also, they have good soundproofing capabilities, since the panels are uniform and have no internal gaps or voids. It is also worth mentioning that OSB can be fully recycled, thereby being considered eco-friendly.

Based on its various applications, from wall cladding, flooring, and ceilings, to furniture design, as well as its low cost and properties mentioned above, we have gathered a collection of 12 projects already published in ArchDaily, which stand out for the versatility of this material.
