Structural Insulated Panels
Efficient by Design, Sustainable by Nature
What are Structural insulated panels?
...or Sips for short!
SIPs are a highly advantageous building system for residential and light commercial construction. They consist of an insulating foam core sandwiched between two structural facings, typically oriented strand board (OSB).
SIPs excel in strength and structural integrity due to their factory-controlled manufacturing process. This ensures precise construction and makes them durable and capable of withstanding various loads and forces, making them suitable for diverse building designs.
SIPs offer exceptional energy efficiency by providing excellent thermal resistance. Their airtightness and insulation reduce energy consumption for heating and cooling, resulting in lower utility bills and reduced environmental impact.
The Green Way to Build!
SIPs promote healthier indoor environments by eliminating VOCs and harmful chemicals, ensuring better air quality for occupants.
With their airtight construction, SIPs minimize air leakage, effectively preventing the entry of outdoor pollutants and allergens, leading to cleaner indoor air.
SIP homes save 40-60% on energy
R-Values are significantly higher — up to 100% greater for the same thickness wall
Air infiltration is 5 times less, resulting in less heating and cooling loss
Smaller HVAC systems, using less energy, are needed to heat and cool the same space
Entire wall/roof assembly installs quickly and easily in sections
Openings and chases precut at factory sheathing or insulating on site
Uniform nailing surface for siding and trim
