RE: OSB Sheathing

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
The APA Product Guide "Oriented Strand Board" (Form No. H315 Issued
October 1983) says that "oriented strand board structural-use panels
range in density between 35 and 45 pounds per cubic foot".  They then
give a table based on 40 pcf.
7/16  =  1.5 psf
1/2   =  1.7
5/8   =   2.1
3/4   =   2.5
