OSB boards are an incredibly versatile, multifaceted wood-based material that fully meets and even exceeds today’s expectations in terms of eco-friendliness and usability. And now the large formats available from SWISS KRONO are delivering additional benefits that are felt most strongly in panelised and modular housing construction.

Jointless Construction – The large dimensions of these boards enable structures with a minimum of joints. In addition to being airtight, they are stronger and more energy-efficient.

Simplified Production and Prefabrication – Prefabricated panels for walls or ceilings no longer have to be made by shaping and joining multiple OSB boards. WithSWISS KRONO LONGBOARD OSB, panels up to 18 metres long can be made in a single piece. This significantly speeds production.

Faster Construction Using Large-Format Panels – Extra-long boards permit the fabrication of storey-high panels that extend the entire length of a building. Fewer such elements are therefore needed for a given construction project, and extensive use of them lets buildings be erected in record time. As prefabrication can take place while the site and foundation are being prepared, much additional time is saved. The total duration of construction, with all of its annoying side-effects such as road closures and noise, is also greatly reduced.

Economic Benefits – Because prefabricated panels or modules can be quickly assembled on-site, the actual construction phase is shortened. The building crane and scaffolding aren’t needed for as long, for example, and the work is completed much faster. This in turn lets the building’s owner occupy it or start generating rental income sooner.

Long-Lived Bespoke BuildingsSWISS KRONO LONGBOARD OSB are excellently suited for erecting individually designed, architecturally sophisticated buildings that will last for a century or more – in other words, with a life expectancy comparable to that of houses made with other materials. Nor are there any restrictions worth mention on the design and insulation of exterior walls.

Slender Walls – As the panels are relatively thin, more living space is available; none is lost to thermal or acoustic insulation.
