Products may help achieve points by their very nature, if they are specified and included in the design in accordance with Green Star NZ requirements (e.g. bicycle racks)
Products may help achieve an outcome but they must be used in a specific manner (e.g. lightingcontrol and zoning systems) OR this product can contribute towards the outcome but many other products or factor influence that same outcome (e.g. Potable Water Calculator)

Application and Purpose

StrandboardTM panel uses include wall and ceiling linings, partitions in general areas including changing rooms and toilets, flooring overlays, general cabinet carcass work and wall bracing.

Installation and Maintenance

Comprised of engineered wood strands, StrandboardTM is bonded with a pMDI resin system under heat and pressure.  When stored, handled, installed and maintained in accordance with the Strandboard brochure, StrandboardTM will meet the provisions of the NZBC B2.3.1(c) for five years (dependent on end use). StrandboardTM is recommended for dry interior use only and must not be used in external situations or areas subjected to repeated water spill or constant dampness.

During construction and after close-in formaldehyde emission levels can be best controlled by room ventilation and sealing or covering the surface facing the habitable space.
