The best panel for the project? West Fraser’s new guide for builders has all the answers

For builders today, there is a plethora of different engineered wood panels to choose from when looking at a new project. West Fraser UK, which operates two factories in the UK, has produced a guide which makes the selection process simple and speedy –


With imports from Eastern Europe, China and South America muddying the water somewhat, the builder can be sure that West Fraser’s products carry the necessary standards and quality marks for the UK and so comply with UK building specifications.  In addition, the transport and environmental costs are minimised.  The product portfolios comprise SterlingOSB Zero OSB3, SterlingOSB Zero T&G, CaberFloor P5, CaberDek, CaberShieldPlus, CaberMDF and the newest addition to the range, SterlingOSB Zero PrimedPlus, and all are net carbon negative while the SterlingOSB Zero range contains no formaldehyde.


SterlingOSB Zero – is a versatile panel product which is popular for its load-bearing credentials and fashionable visual appearance; be it for hoarding, café walls or SIPs.


Caberfloor – is the most popular P5 flooring range in the UK and comes with a choice of plain, protected, peelable or permanent finishes.


CaberDek and CaberShieldPlus – are BBA-approved and the flooring can be exposed to the elements or 60 days when used with CaberFix.


CaberMDF is the original and best brand of MDF in the UK; it’s over 50 years old and there are different grades to choose from depending on the project.


All products are available nationally in builders’ merchants and distributors which are supported by West Fraser’s technical teams.
