22mm Tongue and Groove Chipboard, commonly known as P5 is a structural grade flooring board highly regarded by builders because of its moisture resistant properties. 22mm T&G flooring chipboard is typically utilised in flooring applications. The use of this board in the constructions adds strength when the boards are systematically slotted together and then screwed down to the joists of the floor. 22mm P5 chipboard is utilised in almost all general flooring applications, including bathrooms and kitchens. It is ideal for most domestic applications, and thanks to its sanded smooth surface, it can be used in all kinds of floor coverings. Besides, due to its density, it enhances insulation, especially when used with the right thermal slab or acoustic type insulation. P5 sheets are also narrow, and as such, effortless to work with especially in tight spaces like lofts.
