What is Structural Plywood?
Structural plywood is a durable and stable variety of plywood that is extremely versatile.
While it is most suited for internal cladding applications, you can use it externally without any fuss. A wide range of softwood and hardwood species of wood are the sources of our external plywood. We also treat our structural plywood with preservatives, to ensure durability in exterior weather conditions.

Your Structural Plywood Supplier in Sydney and NSW
With many of the overseas distributors, you can hardly be sure about the source of the ply.
First, manufacturers may have made them hastily in Bali or Indonesia. Next, they can purposely deliver the finished products to Australia through Singapore. Moreover, most overseas suppliers do not offer any zero formaldehyde emission rating. Thus, the absence of this crucial quality parameter means the quality of the plywood you’ll be getting questionable.
At FA Mitchell, we stick to stringent levels of quality. Sourced from accredited plantation forests in Australia, the structural plywood we offer is consistently of very high quality. We have our products audited by the Engineered Wood Products Association of Australasia (EWPAA), without exception.
