What are SIP's (Structural Insulated Panels)
SIPs, or Structural Insulated Panels, are a revolutionary building material that has taken the construction industry by storm.
Our SIPs are made up of a rigid foam core of polyurethane that we inject between two sheets of OSB3 (an engineered structural timber sheet), making them the perfect building component.
Advantages of SIP's (Structural Insulated Panels)
One of the most significant advantages of using SIPs is their excellent thermal insulation properties. The Polyurethane foam in the core of SIP panels has a high R-value, meaning it can effectively prevent heat transfer through the walls, floor, and roof. This feature can help you save money on energy bills, as your heating and cooling systems will not have to work as hard to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature. SIPs are known to be about 50% more energy-efficient than traditional timber framing
Another significant advantage of SIPs is their ability to reduce waste during the construction process, because the panels are optimised and cut in our factory, there is very little material waste generated.
Benefits of SIP's (Structural Insulated Panels)
Benefits of SIPs include being lightweight, easy to install, and due to the speed of build; you can expect to significantly reduce labour costs, making SIPs a cost-effective alternative to traditional building materials.
The panels come in various thicknesses (72mm, 97mm, 122mm, 147mm, 172mm, and 197mm) and can be cut to fit any specific design requirements, making them an ideal choice for complex architectural designs.
Overall, SIPs are an excellent choice for anyone looking for a sustainable building material that can save a lot of money on both labour and energy bills.
