EXTREME ENERGY EFFICIENCY & SUPERIOR R-VALUES
The R-Values are similar to those of other products. R-value is a static measurement of the resistance to heat flow. Premier SIPs have consistently outperformed other methods of construction in both whole wall R-value comparison and energy efficiency.
The most dramatic results are the reports of the happy customers of WEST-ECO Panelized Building Systems, but there is also a significant level of scientific data as well. One of the best measures of energy efficiency of an entire wall assembly has been developed by Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). This testing method considers energy losses for the structural members, corners, joints and around windows, as well as, R- value of the insulation.
Up To Two-Thirds Less Jobsite Waste Than Buildings Framed With Dimensional Lumber
Job-ready SIPs allow installers to install the roof, wall and floor panels without the need to cut, frame and trim excessive amounts of lumber and other materials. The job-ready feature of WEST-ECO panels reduces the amount of jobsite material waste by 60% when compared to buildings constructed with regular dimensional lumber and framing materials. Less waste is obviously better for our environment.
Exceptional Indoor Air Quality And Temperature Control
When compared to buildings framed with dimensional lumber, large SIPs cover greater surfaces with far less gaps in the walls and roofs, to be filled and sealed, offering home and building owners better indoor air quality, reduced infiltration of outside pollutants, smaller HVAC systems needs and superior indoor temperature control. WEST-ECO homes and buildings stay cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter than buildings framed with dimensional lumber.
Stand Apart With Sips By West-Eco
Customers are changing. They are demanding innovation, customization and they want products that are energy efficient and good for the environment.
SIPs are the ultimate solution for builders and contractors who want to stand apart from the competition. SIPs significantly reduce installation time (by about 2/3 a typical framing schedule – structures are framed in days instead of weeks), jobsite waste (again about 2/3 less framing waste), and post-construction callbacks.
Stronger. Straighter. Greener With SIPS.
Stronger: SIPs are significantly stronger than dimensional stick frame construction. The product strength offers many benefits, including a roof system that eliminates the need for a truss system (imagine reducing your framing schedule by removing the labor and installation time for truss construction!).
Straighter: Large, strong panels arrive to your job-site pre-fabricated per floor plans, saving days and possibly weeks of installation time. These panels are engineered and predictable, unlike stick frame construction. These consistent panels enable you to build straight roofs, walls and floors hours of.
Greener: Everyone wants to be environmentally responsible, but few lumber products can truly say they are good for the environment. Made from fast growing trees and 100% recyclable EPS foam SIPs from WEST-ECO create structures that regularly have up to 60% reduction in utility bills. And this is just a glimpse of all the ways our SIPs are greener than other framing options.
