Structural Insulated Panels

SIPS panels are made up of a rigid (PIR) foam core, sandwiched between two structural skins of Oriented Strand Board (OSB) an “engineered wood” product. The result is a building system that is very strong, energy efficient, and cost effective.

SIPS are now beginning to make a bigger impact within the construction industry as builders and developers strive to find economic and energy efficient alternatives to the more traditional methods in order to comply with the ever tightening Building Regulation requirements for improved U-values and air tightness.

Benefits of Marley SIPs

  • The cost and speed of erection, as well as the structural and thermal performance of SIPS is ahead of almost any current alternative.
  • The insulation values for SIPS is far superior to conventional framing and insulating methods. SIPS buildings are virtually airtight, giving the occupants more control over the interior environment. This energy efficiency will become increasingly important as the cost of heating fuels inevitably increases.
  • SIPS are environmentally friendly. Their facings are made from renewable, farm-grown younger trees, and none of their components contribute to environmental degradation. A SIPS building helps reduce pollution by consuming much less heating and cooling energy. There is also much less waste from a SIPS designed building than a conventional building which means less waste materials being sent to landfill and less pollution from burning waste.
  • SIPS can be used as structural components of a building or simply as cladding solutions to any existing structure offering exceptional thermal qualities.
  • These innovative structures incorporate beauty and simplicity into relatively low-cost houses.
  • SIP buildings are vastly more energy efficient, stronger, quieter, and more draft free than other building systems.
