APA—The Engineered Wood Association (Tacoma, Wash.) has launched a comprehensive new Web site on engineered wood panels used in non-construction applications, including pallets and material handling.
Structural wood panels, such as plywood or oriented strand board (OSB), are useful for a variety of non-construction applications because panels offer workability, long-term performance, durability, economy and a high degree of design flexibility.
The Web site provides information on the varying components of engineered wood panels and how they benefit industrial users. PerformancePanels.com also provides a comprehensive list of the panels’ technical attributes, including tables and other data that will allow users to choose the right panel for their application. Specification information and links to APA member manufacturers of panels are also available.
“In a global economy, companies cannot afford to overlook opportunities to use quality materials designed for high performance,” said Mark Halverson, Eastern region manager for APA’s Field Services Division. “Performance panels are easily shaped, incorporated with other products, and are both strong and light in weight. With unlimited sizes, surface qualities and performance capabilities, performance panels are ideal for nearly every application.”
