  • Why Sips Structures are Superior

Why Sips Structures are Superior

 

SIPs are the 21st Century Building Material

Structural insulated panels (SIPs) are a high performance building system for residential and light commercial construction. The panels consist of an insulating foam core sandwiched between two structural facings, typically oriented strand board (OSB). 

SIPs are manufactured under factory controlled conditions and can be fabricated to fit nearly any building design. The result is a building system that is extremely strong, energy efficient and cost effective. Building with SIPs will save you time, money and labor.

Advantages of using SIPS

1. Superior energy efficiency With U-values as low as 0.10 W/m²•K save energy and reduce running costs.

2. Minimising cold bridging The Y-value is a measure of the total heat loss expected from all of the thermal bridge losses in all of the junctions in the building. The SIPs system has a typical Y-value of 0.025 W/m².K exceeding the accredited and enhanced construction details values of 0.08 and 0.04 W/m².K respectively.

3. Speed of build The rapid assembly made possible by the large format SIPS system reduces build time and lowers construction cost

4. Strong air tightness performance Minimal panel joints by virtue of the large format panels combined with the exacting panel tolerances of ±2mm

5. Fewer post construction defects The structural integrity of the SIP system eliminates settlement after building completion, reducing the time required for post-construction snagging

6. Low environmental impact Because reduced energy means reduced emissions, SIP s contributes positively to the environment by helping to lower CO2 levels, all the materials used in manufacture and construction are sustainable and recyclable .

If you would prefer to use your own contractor, or are planning on completing the work yourself, Modularsips can supply a ready to assemble  kit, including  floor ring beam, support members and ancillary items.

You will still benefit from the same level of expert design and manufacture as you get with a full system supply, but Modularsips would not be involved with panel installation. This option would still benefit from full technical support
