IBS EUROFloor
Description

IBS EUROFloor is an OSB3 (Oriented Strand Board) panel. The product is a moisture resistant, engineered structural wood panel made from PEFC forests in Europe. IBS EUROFloor is specifically designed for the New Zealand market. IBS EUROFloor is engineered in Europe with IBS's partner Swiss Krono from environmentally sustainable sources. IBS EUROFloor consists of three layers of wood strands bonded together with heat-cured adhesives.

Each layer is orientated at right angles to the adjacent layer creating a strong, dimensionally stable panel that resists delamination and warping. The absence of natural imperfections such as knots provides certainty of performance.

IBS EUROFloor sheets are available in sizes of 2400 or 3600 x 1200 x 20mm and has a plastic tongue and groove jointing system along the long edge of the sheet.

As an OSB3 panel, manufactured in accordance with EN13986:2004, it is suitable for use in humid conditions where the panel in-service moisture content does not exceed 20%. Compliance with the NZ Building Code (NZBC) is established through product certification (CodeMark).
