Download FTB009 - Formance SIPs as an Interior Lining.pdf

The faces of a Formance panel are constructed from Oriented Strand Board, a unique structural material made from natural wood fibers that are aligned during the manufacturing process to give the panel structural properties.

 

OSB is manufactured to stringent quality standards by certified plants. The manufacturer adds a “millmark” on the board after manufacture to identify the key characteristics of the board and to what standard it has been manufactured.

 

The most common option for finishing the interior of Formance SIP’s is to add a layer of plasterboard. In fact, most sheet material can be readily applied to the inside face of the SIP as a lining. The lining can be fixed directly to the panel or onto a service cavity as per Bulletin # FTB001.

 

However, for some projects, there may be a reason to leave the face of the Formance panels exposed and to direct finish the panels without an additional lining. If choosing this finish consideration will need to be given to the presence of the millmarks on the face of the OSB.

 

These millmarks can be removed by sanding the surface. A considerable effort is required to remove the marks and care needs to be taken not to remove excessive thickness of board, thus affecting the structural capacity. Mostly it is easier to use a solid darker colour to hide rather than remove the millmarks.

 

Other things to consider with exposed SIP’s,

  • The irregularities of the manufacturing process can cause the visual appearance of panels to be inconsistent,
  • The sill plate can be seen and would need a skirting board to conceal it if desired.
  • In some cases, a top plate packer is required, this can be seen on the interior unless concealed with a scotia or similar.
  • The panels have a variable 3mm construction tolerance gap between them which may be inconsistent depending on the installation.
  • The perimeter of each panel has nails @ 300mm centres which are exposed and will be visible.
  • The sheet edges can swell slightly if over-exposed to the elements during construction, affecting the look of the joints. Some joint sanding may be required.

 

See accompanying Resene Spec below for guidance.
