SIPs are most commonly used as Components or part of a Building Envelope, however, SIPs are also used on their own and separate from any Building Envelope.
Did You Know?
Structural insulated panels (SIPs) offer a construction system that can reduce both the construction cost and the operating cost of affordable housing, while maintaining a high degree of occupant comfort.
The large Structurally Insulated Panels often offer themselves as
- Insulated Rig Mats
- Hot/cold barriers
- Insulated Road mats buried below the surface
- Curtain walls
- Insulated platforms
- Structural and Insulated walkways and sidewalks
- Insulated and Structural covers for large holding tanks
- A wide variety of substrates can be either fastened or glued to a Structural Insulated Panel which allow for many different applications.
Building with SIPs speeds up construction time dramatically saving labor costs, reducing loan cost overhead, and waste disposal costs.
