ELKA Strong Boards

Product Description

Elka Strong Board (ESB) is a highly diffusion open, structural wood particle board.

Intended for use in load bearing structural elements in humid condition and is categorised as a P5 racking board.

When compared to a standard OSB3 panel, ESB has a significantly lower diffusion resistance factor and is an ideal solution for allowing vapour movement in diffusion open constructions.

ESB is suitable for both internal use alongside an intelligent vapour control layer such as INTELLO PLUS, and externally with a breather membrane such as SOLITEX FRONTA WA.

ESB has a greater transverse tensile strength than OSB3 thus producing optimum screw and nail extraction rates.

ESB panels are largely odour-neutral and support healthy home environment. ESB panels are made solely from virgin wood without any harmful additives.

ESB panels (P5) are fabricated in accordance with EN 312. They can be supplied in FSC®- certified and/or PEFC- certified quality and carry the CE mark for conformity.
