What is in a Smart Panel?

Smart Panel technology is an advanced prefabricated Structural Insulated Panel made up of two sheets of Structural Oriented Strandboard (OSB), Strandboard or Plywood with an injection molded high density super insulated polyurethane core, which bonds to the board in the 40 tonne molding press.

A weather and air-tightness membrane is applied to the panel sheet (walls only) during the production process to provide a finished exterior surface to the panel, removing the need for building wrap and giving further savings on time and cost.

The cam lock technology quickly pulls the Smart Panels together during the construction process for an easy, fast install and a strong air tight bond between each panel.

Smart Panels internal finish:

All Smart Panels have OSB/Strandboard or Plywood  as the internal face of the panel. Using a 20mm cavity batten for electrical services followed by internal finished lining like plaster board, ply or timber paneling achieves a finished surface. If the panels are left without a lining, it is recommended that the panel joins are taped and battened for air tightness.

All Smart Panels come with a NZ Code Mark certified water & air tight external membrane and tapes to seal between panels, top plate, bottom plate & window openings.
