A building system for the 21st century

Structural Insulated Panel Systems (SIPs) are prefabricated building systems with many advantages - they are energy efficient, quick to construct, robust, versatile and manufactured to high quality standards.

SIPs are lightweight building panels that combine two high-density facings bonded to either side of a low density polymeric core. Typical materials include Oriented Strand board (OSB) or Cement Bonded Particleboard (CPB) for the facings, and foamed polyurethane (PUR) or Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) for the core. In the UK these panels are predominantly used as internal and external walls in dwelling and light-industrial construction of up to three storeys. In some applications the panels are also used for the roofing structure.
