Industry Leaders in Structural Insulated Panels
What are SIPs?
Our high performance building system consists of insulated foam core between two structural facings, typically oriented strand board (OSB).
What are the benefits of choosing to build an energy efficient SIP home? There are many, but some of the highlights include: a lower cost to heat and cool your home, increased comfort levels, healthier indoor air quality, and knowing that you are doing your part to reduce energy consumptiom.
Speed of construction is a key value to many residential builders. Using SIPs can reduce labour by up to 35%. This is because your prefabricated SIPs are produced in our facilities before arriving at your build site. The SIP’s arrive on the build site pre-cut with all the timber required for assembly.
Our extensive experience will help you go beyond simply specifying SIP materials. Use our detailed technical library to get the information and details you need. Then, utilise our expertise in order to design using SIPs with greater flexibility and creativity. We want to be your trusted partner.
PRIMARY BENEFITS OF LIVING IN A SIP HOME
What are the benefits of choosing to build an A rated energy efficient SIP home? There are many, but some of the highlights include: a lower cost to heat and cool your home, increased comfort levels, healthier indoor air quality, and knowing that you are contributing to reducing energy consumption.
Save on Energy Bills
Did you know heating and cooling accounts for about 40% of your total energy costs per year? The best way to reduce your energy consumption is to reduce energy loss. This is where SIP panels have the greatest influence. SIP homes provide improved resistance to the energy lost through air leaks and thermal transfer.
Live More Comfortably
Most of us living in traditional homes have learned to deal with rooms getting too hot, and then too cold– as well as spaces that feel colder in one spot than they do in another. The tightness of a SIP home helps keep cold air from entering your warm spaces and causing drafts. Many homeowners who choose to build an energy-efficient SIP home for the energy cost savings, spend more time talking about how amazingly comfortable their new home feels when compared to past homes.
Choosing a home constructed with SIPs is a great way to build green, or sustainably. For one thing, prefabricated SIP homes reduce waste during construction. SIP homes also consistently reduce energy consumption through the life of the home. Finally, these homes tend to remain in use longer than conventionally built ones. This is important because all homes consume resources in order to be built. So, the longer a home remains a viable living space, the more sustainable the building materials are.
A home built with SIP? How can it be structurally sound? The truth is the composite nature of the SIP panels create an incredibly strong structure. SIP homes have withstood all kinds of environments. You can also use the structural features of a SIP home to create more open interior spaces, without adding extra posts or interior walls.
WHO WILL DESIGN YOUR SIP HOME?
Structural insulated panels are drawn into all kinds of designs. SIP’s Ireland has a team of dedicated production designers who have worked with plans from architects, designers, and even pre-purchased floor plans. We determine how the panels will fit with your design and then produce the panels to fit your exact needs..
WHO WILL BUILD YOUR SIP HOME?
Building a SIP home is different from the typical timber frame construction.
Sips’ Ireland is happy to design and install your new home. We also work with builders to wish to erect the SIP panel kits themselves.. We provide builders with detailed construction documents, offer on-site technical assistance, and provide builders with hands-on training.
