Durable OSB boards made from natural wood and sustainably produced for wood and shell construction

SWISS KRONO OSB/3: Revolutionary step ahead in wooden building applications

SWISS KRONO OSB/3 is abbreviated name in English «Oriented Strand Boards», which mean «Oriented Strand Boards».

It is a wood-based product in the form of a flat-pressed three-layer board consisting of rectangular flat strands which, under the influence of high pressure and temperature, with the use of synthetic resin as a binding agent, are pressed down to form a board by the hot rolling method.

It is the first wood-based board developed specifically for the construction industry.


SWISS KRONO OSB/3 is free from any humps, cracks, emptiness or other internal defects, while both surfaces demonstrate the same quality.

SWISS KRONO OSB/3 is distinct for its stability of shape, very good resistance to weather conditions, good sound insulation, easy workability and processability.

The micro-structure consisting of SWISS KRONO OSB/3 interpenetrated strands prevents edges from breaking, ensures high rigidity, bending and shear resistance, what are important properties in framework building.


Board types

OSB/1 board with no load transfer, suitable for interior applications in dry conditions

OSB/2 board with load transfer properties, suitable for applications in dry conditions

OSB/3 board with load transfer properties, suitable for applications in wet conditions

OSB/4 board with high load transfer properties, suitable for applications in wet conditions

Depending on the edge finish, three types of boards can be distinguished:

  • board with square edges
  • board with tongue-and-groove moulded edges along four sides.


SWISS KRONO OSB/3 is the wood-based material of the future. High quality, environmental friendliness both in production and use, coupled with universal applications, are the most important benefits of SWISS KRONO OSB/3.

Houses built by the framework technology based on SWISS KRONO OSB/3 are:

  • environmentally-friendly,
  • energy-efficient,
  • lasting for many generations,
  • quick to construct.

Thanks to SWISS KRONO OSB/3 advantages, single- and multi-family framework buildings are constructed faster and thus cheaper. Erected with precision, they can last for dozens of years. What is more, the houses can be easily and economically heated.
