This dissertation researches the types and uses of manufactured wood products and aims to test the effect of real world environment that the various products may experience during the early stages of construction. The residential construction industry, within the local area, is fastly growing, and with tighter deadlines more construction efficient products are being created so that profits can be maximised. New products must meet a criteria outlined in the Australian standards before they can be used in construction. The most common principle used in the design of manufactured wood products is use a common light wood, remove faults and imperfections and bond it together to make a strong lightweight product. This results in the reduction of material costs and labour costs, as the products weight far less and is easier to work with.
