SMARTPLY DRYBACKER is an engineered OSB3 panel incorporating a continuous recess, designed to accommodate ‘C’ shaped metal studs used in the construction of plasterboard partitions.
It is tested to the relevant sections of BS5234 Part 2 demonstrating high pull-out strength. SMARTPLY DRYBACKER is an OSB3 panel with zero added formaldehyde and therefore may also be useful in environmentally sensitive interior applications such as hospitals, laboratories, museums and schools. Manufactured in accordance with EN300, CE marked and FSC approved, SMARTPLY DRYBACKER is a fully certified alternative to tropical plywood.
SMARTPLY DRYBACKER is designed to provide support for fixtures and fittings in non-structural metal stud constructions. The ready prepared modular panels are quick and easy to use and fit all commercially available drylining stud systems. The high performance solid core OSB3 ensures secure anchorage at any point on the panel face. SMARTPLY DRYBACKER does not add to the finished partition thickness and provides a robust partition structure suitable for use in in public access areas including corridors and stairwells, contributing to higher levels of impact resistance.
