Part of Particle Boards in Interior

As you read the name Particle we can understand that these are made of sawdust , wooden leftovers that are glued and compressed . Compression is applied to the particle board sheet multiple times to create the tightest possible bond between the resin and the wood bits.The Popular type of Particle board in the market is Oriented Strand Board (OSB).Oriented strand board is easily identifiable by its manufacturing process that layers strands of wood in specific orientations. Most home and commercial builders use OSB particle board for floor and wall bases

Best use of Block Boards

  • Best use for ready made furniture
  • Less life span of furniture
  • Low cost.

Wood plays the most important role mainly in Interior design industries. It doesn’t mean we are exploiting nature. Wood used for furniture is selected based on their carbon cycle ie., annual growth rings .

“The woods are never solitary-they are full of whispering, beckoning, friendly life.”
