Product descriptionThe product is an oriented strand board (OSB) that is manufactured to serve as a rim board. The product is available in five grades and three thicknesses as listed below. The factored resistances of the five grades are outlined in Table 2 of the Evaluation Requirements. The nominal depths are available to match engineered wood joist depths of up to 610 mm. Technical product support is provided by APA – The Engineered Wood Association.

This evaluation is issued by the Canadian Construction Materials Centre (CCMC), part of the Construction Research Centre at the National Research Council of Canada (NRC). The evaluation must be read in the context of the entire CCMC Registry of Product Assessments and the legislated applicable building code in effect.
The CCMC was established in 1988 on behalf of the applicable regulator (i.e., the provinces and territories) to ensure—through assessment—conformity of alternative and acceptable solutions to regional building codes as determined by the local authority having jurisdiction (AHJ) as part of the issuance of a building permit.
It is the responsibility of the local AHJs, design professionals, and specifiers to confirm that the evaluation is current and has not been withdrawn or superseded by a later issue. Please refer to the website or contact:
