Timber frame building

Aligning with the cost, speed and sustainability potential of offsite and timber frame construction, MEDITE SMARTPLY’s extensive range of SMARTPLY OSB/3 and OSB/4 panels are developed to meet the most demanding of applications. Furthermore, they can be easily produced to the large scale size requirements often demanded by offsite and timber frame construction, thanks to Contiroll® manufacturing; the continuous pressing of wood strands into panels.

When properly managed, timber is the only 100% sustainable construction material. We have pioneered the sustainable timber industry in Europe, with all our specialised timber panels produced essentially as by-products of the sustainable forest management of the 7% of Ireland’s forests now owned by Coillte. Producing all of our SMARTPLY OSB from this source guarantees the sustainable production of our entire product range.
