OSB Bracing (OS’Brace®)

OS’Brace® is a high quality, moisture resistant structural bracing panel for timber framed construction that resists splitting and delamination.  OS’Brace® is simple to install – lightweight, easy to cut, nail, screw and drill. Can be nailed or stapled subject to manufacturer’s guideline. 

OS’Brace® provides four simple bracing systems, offering up to 6 kN/m racking resistance when fixed to timber framing (JD5 minimum) in accordance with the manufacturer’s guidelines.

Manufactured by EGGER in Europe, OS’Brace® is constructed as a three-layered OSB panel of oriented strands (micro-veneers) bonded with synthetic resin designed specifically for the Australian building and construction industry.

OS’Brace is available as either an Untreated or Treated (H2) panel. The H2 treated panel is suitable for use across Australia and is easily identified by a blue stamp.
