Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs)
SIPs are high-performance building panels used in residential and light commercial construction. The panels are fabricated to a specific building design, saving time, materials cost and labor hours on a building site. SIPs are constructed in three layers: an insulated foam core sandwiched between two structural components- an exterior sheathing & and interior sheathing. The resulting building material is strong, energy efficient and cost effective for building operations over the long run.
Structural Integrity: SIPs were adopted into the International Residential Code in 2007. SIPs have structural characteristics similar to steel I-beams.
Energy Efficiency: SIPs are a green construction material that help to seal the building envelope completely. The result is better building insulation and an airtight structure. That means you’ll use less energy to heat and cool your home.
Air Quality: SIPs allow for better control of indoor air quality, as only controlled ventilated air is cycled throughout the building. Controlled ventilation filters allergens, contaminants and humidity, thus creating a healthy indoor environment. SIPs meet strict stand.
