What Are Structural Insulated Panels?

SIPs or Structural Insulated Panels are high-performance construction materials used in homes and small commercial establishments. They are considered the most advanced building system that you can employ in your home or business. They are durable and energy efficient as well as cost-efficient. They also allow builders and homeowners to save a considerable amount of time, money and labour. Let's learn more about this technologically advanced building system.

How are SIPs made?

Each structural insulated panel is composed of an insulated foam core sandwiched between a couple of structural facings. These facings are usually made of OSB or oriented strand board. If you live in an area where the cold weather can be unforgiving, you can stay indoors without having to worry about too much cold getting in, thanks to these insulated panels that you can use all over the building. These panels can be tailor-made according to your building measurements.

Are they costly?

Many people ask if the SIPs panels UK constructors use are costlier than their alternatives. The answer is no, the amount that you will have to shell out using a wooden frame and other materials is about the same as if you use structural insulated panels. The savings will be realised in the cost of labour because you can install SIPs a lot quicker than other building materials. There are other sources of savings with SIPs. You can save more on heating and cooling costs, because of the additional insulation in the building, it no longer requires the typical amount of heating or cooling.

Other types of sheathing and foam materials

Besides OSB or oriented strand board, other materials used for sheathing the insulated foam core are metal, cement, plywood or magnesium oxide board. On the other hand, the insulated foam core can be made of polyurethane foam, composite honeycomb, extruded polystyrene foam, expanded polystyrene foam or polyisocyanurate foam.

Similarities of SIPs with I-beams

The structural properties of SIPs are the same as the I-beam. The insulation foam core acts as a mesh while the casing of the foam core accomplishes the flanges’ roles. Utilizing SIPs in building and construction uses a number of the usual construction elements. These are the air barrier and insulation, as well as studs and joists.

Structural insulation panels have many uses. You can choose to use them for roofing, flooring, and exterior walls as well as in foundation systems. You no longer have to worry when the cold months come because your whole building will be protected from the harsh weather, while still saving money on heating costs. Many constructors working on new and even existing structures turn to structural insulated panels because these advanced construction systems offer additional protection for everyone and everything inside the building structures. SIPs are most suitable in places where the cold or heat is unforgiving, but most especially in cold areas where temperatures can drop to impressively negative ranges for prolonged periods of time.
