Structural Insulated Panels (SIPS) have become more popular in the UK in recent years as builders and developers strive to deliver increasingly energy efficient building fabric to comply with or exceed the requirements of current building regulations and social housing funding criteria.
If you are building your own house, you will most likely be keen to deliver the most energy efficient building envelope. SIPS can provide a simple solution with inherent air tightness and integral insulation as part of the structural external wall and roof components.
A typical SIPS timber frame building system consists of
Range of high performance windows and doors
Temporary roof covering or finished roof
Range of panel thicknesses / thermal performance levels with inherent air tightness - from building regs compliance to passive house standards
SIPS external walls and roof panels
Studwork internal partitions
Engineered floor joist system and protected floor deck
Optional VCL and service battens + stage 1 air test
We will design, supply and install the complete SIPS structure to provide a weather tight / air tight envelope.
