Structural Plywood 18x1220x2440mm

High strength premium quality structural panel. 20% lighter than many alternatives. Manufactured using Nordic Spruce. The natural properties of Nordic spruce make it light, easy to work with, easy to saw and easy to nail.. Uses include flooring, roofing, wall sheathing, shuttering, hoarding, packaging, staging formwork, upholstered furniture, lorry bodies and trailers.. This panel has been technically assessed and achieved an agreement certificate for use as wall skins/sheathing in timber frame construction.. Responsibly sourced and E1 emissions compliant.. CE marked and compliant with EN13986 governing panels for use in construction.. When used externally all faces and edges should be treated with an appropriate preserver. Made from a number of thin layers of timber (or veneers) normally laid so that the grain of each layer is at right angles to the layer below. The two outermost layers are placed with the grain running in the same direction. They are bonded together using a special resin adhesive and pressed together under heat. After drying the panels are trimmed, surface defects repaired and then sanded. This construction is designed to give a uniform product that resists warping and bending..

Pros: goodsolid structure to the ply layers
Cons: slightly warped when offloaded due to strapping
"Good straightforward product. Used for a medium sized external roof decking and has held up well under very wet conditions under a tarpaulin awaiting dry weather for felting.
Ply layers are solid when cut with very few cavities so is a good choice for furniture manufacture or external use.
Boards were a touch bowed due to tying down in damp conditions on the lorry over night but straightened out on the rafters when fixed down.

Pros: reasonably light to handle with assistance
Cons: needs to be stored flat or upright

"Better quality panels overall than I've had before from other sources. No edge delamination or surface divots, and no voids found when cutting.
I will order them again for my next project, despite the slight;y higher price than elsewhere."

Pros: cheap
Cons: variable quality
"I bought 11 sheets. 1 proved unusable do to severe bowing. 3 others were also bowed badly but I could use them with additional stiffening in the construction (extra cost to me). Several of the flat sheets had many drop out knot holes on one side which was OK except where the other side had a surface where the wood had become 'furry' which was a pain. I recommend others to visit the store and select their sheets. I don't have transport for sheets this size so they were ordered online and delivered."

Pros: it was the cheapest in my area
"Used this plywood to replace rotten boards on a garage external back wall.
It is good quality, came at a good price, delivered on time and by helpful drivers.
Cuts well and has made a solid replacement to what was there previously.
Covered well when painted and look the part.
Well done Wickes."
