Norbord donates to Men’s Shed

The Inverness branch of Men’s Shed has been busy restoring a former 1930’s pavilion on the grounds of Millburn Academy into a new home for the group.

Fundraising for the £115,000 renovation project had been hampered by the pandemic, but a donation of SterlingOSB Zero by Norbord from the nearby plant in Inverness enabled the group to re-open and get back to work!

The renovation task on the derelict pavilion was so big that the local group could work on different parts of the building while still observing social distancing.

The Scottish Men’s Sheds Association and the UK Men’s Sheds Association create resources to look after the wellbeing, health, and education of members, and never has this been more vital than during the pandemic as part of the battle against social isolation.

Norbord‘s portfolio of OSB products is a development of the most popular brand in the building and interior design industries and comprises SterlingOSB Zero 3, SterlingOSB Zero Tongue and Groove, SterlingOSB Zero Fire Solutions, and SterlingOSB Zero StrongFix. They are variants of the popular precision-engineered OSB3 board; BBA approved and designed for humid conditions, it contains zero added formaldehyde.
