Structural integrity

  • SIPS are load bearing walls with structural characteristics similar to a steel I-beam. The skins act like the flanges of an I-beam and the rigid core provides the web of the I-beam configuration. This composite assembly yields stiffness, strength and predictable performance
  • Marley SIPS panels are manufactured using an advanced manufacturing process to produce a structural load bearing panel of superior strength and quality.
  • Specially formulated polyisocyanurate (PIR) foam forms a high strength bond with the OSB3 facing boards to produce a composite panel which out performs most other SIPS. (No adhesive is used in the manufacturing process)
  • The structural integrity of SIP buildings is significantly superior to a conventionally framed building in term of shear resistance, flexural strength, compression and uplift resistance.
  • SIP is fully designed and fabricated in a controlled factory conditions, ensuring accurate dimension and tolerances, therefore the end product that arrives on site is accurate and defect free; this assures the quality of your building.
  • SIP constructions are certified for 60 years lifespan, while the concrete buildings have a scientific lifespan of 50 years.
