WHAT ARE SIP PANELS?
Structural Insulated Panels; these panels consist of two sheets of OSB3 (oriented standard boards) adhered to a sheet of rigid foam insulation. Varying thickness of insulation achieves the required level of insulation for the desired end use or product.
These panels are compressed together under high pressure to form a structurally strong panel, set with specialist adhesive.
Using walls formed from SIPs can greatly reduce the labour and time cost associated with timber frame or masonry construction.
Insulated joining splines also reduce cold bridging, which can occur with timber framed studwork.
All of our SIPs are manufactured in house, allowing us to keep quality control at the forefront of our production.
USES FOR SIPS
Our SIPs are ideal to use for the construction of garden rooms, garden offices and garden studios. They can also be successfully used for holiday lodges, garages and single storey home extensions. For these we can create a panel to suit your building needs and to pass Building Control requirements.
Whether you are a home owner, builder or DIY enthusiast, SIPs construction can make your project quicker and more efficient than standard builds.
5 REASONS TO BUILD WITH SIPS
• Strength; stronger than traditional timber build
• Speed; save time and labour on construction
• Energy efficiency; excellent u values and thermal performance
• Reduced cold bridging
• High levels of air tightness
