What is Structural Plywood?
Structural plywood is a durable and stable variety of plywood which is extremely versatile in nature.
While it is most suited for internal cladding applications, you can use it externally without any fuss. The plywood can be manufactured from a wide range of softwood and hardwood species of wood. To ensure durability in testing exterior weather conditions, structural plywood is treated with preservative.

Your Structural Plywood Supplier in Sydney and NSW
Sourced from accredited plantation forests in Australia, the structural plywood we offer is consistently of very high quality. With many of the overseas distributors, you can hardly be sure about the source of the ply. For all you know, they were simply manufactured in Bali or Indonesia and delivered to you via Singapore. If that is the case, the quality of the plywood you’re getting remains a big question mark.
To make matters worse, most overseas suppliers do not offer a zero formaldehyde emission rating- a crucial quality parameter. We stick to stringent levels of quality and have our products audited by the Engineered Wood Products Association of Australasia (EWPAA) without exception.
