SMARTPLY DRYBACKER, an innovative factory prepared oriented strand board (OSB), has greatly reduced the time spent on the latest big build project for contractor SD Plastering.

The project, at Surrey Quays, Canada Water, London has seen 280 commercial and residential units take shape over the past two years with an additional 160 to follow on. Specially designed SMARTPLY DRYBACKER was chosen over traditional board as the material of choice to provide support for heavy fixtures and fittings in the construction of plasterboard partitions throughout. SMARTPLY DRYBACKER features a uniquely designed recess in the rear of the panel, designed to accommodate ā€˜Cā€™ shaped metal studs meaning the panel will fit snugly to most commercially available drylining systems. The panel significantly reduces install time, without adding any thickness to the final partition.
