Recent events have led many people to question how healthy their homes are. The more time people are spending at home, the more they are aware of the buildings they occupy.

This presents a challenge for the construction industry, in order to meet new demands and expectations, but it can be seen as a positive one.

It’s possible to level up the strength and vitality of an environment offered by a building a building with simply the right choice of products. Even pattressing panels can help contribute in this way.


SMARTPLY PATTRESS PLUS is an engineered OSB/3 panel incorporating a continuous recess to accommodate ‘C’ shaped metal studs, providing secure anchorage for fixtures and fittings. It arrives on site pre-cut in two easy-to-handle lengths and two thicknesses, which snuggly fit between studs. This makes it easier to install without compromising on strength.

The panels are consistent and made to meet a guaranteed pull out strength, with no knots, gaps or void, making it a suitable alternative to plywood.

Alongside being easier to handle, it’s also healthier. With MEDITE SMARTPLY’s no added formaldehyde manufacturing process, it is safer for dryliners to install and contributes to a healthier environment for future building occupants.

Finally, this versatile, high-performance OSB/3 panel meets the severe duty rating, meaning it is structurally secure enough to hold severely heavy weight.

Additional benefits

As a pre-rebated panel, PATTRESS PLUS allows the stud flange to slot into one side while a dryliner holds it in place and screws the other side to the angle on the next stud, with no unnecessary production of dust or added noise. This also means that dryliners can work independently if necessary – a handy factor in the current climate.

PATTRESS PLUS is manufactured from FSC® certified timber from our own forests, which helps to ensure that your project meets its BREEAM, LEED or WELL Standard environmental building standards–making it healthier for the planet as well.

Make it strong, make it reliable, make it tough—make it PATTRESS PLUS.
