Our standard 2.4m hoarding is an 18mm OSB (Oriented strand board) pre primed in grey or white, other colours are available for top coat. Cover strips and bottom plates are the norm, top plates are also available in treated timber or aluminium. This solution is 100% better than cheap plywood painted on site.
Our boards our factory primed and coated. Applying paint with a brush to raw plywood with no primer leads to flaking of paint and ultimately water ingress and warping of the boards. Our boards are prepped and finished before they even reach your site, allowing for a faster install and improved quality. A good osb will outlast and look better than cheap WBP elliotis shuttering grade plywood and this is why we prefer OSB.
