SIPs technology has many advantages over traditional construction methods;

Architectural Advantages

  • Panels can be used for diverse applications including internal and external walls, floors and roof surfaces.
  • Roof trusses are eliminated allowing you to create living space in the roof.
  • Structural superiority of panels has been proven by independent testing.
  • Massive energy saving is achieved – typically a 50% saving over conventional construction.
  • High thermal efficiency for the building envelope.
  • Smaller wall footprint than a conventional wall built to achieve an equivalent U-value.
  • Sips Industries panels can be combined with many other materials including brick, block, stone, tiles, slate, wood, steel and glass.

Advantages for the Builder

  • The simple construction speeds building up time 2 to 3 times.
  • There is reduced supervision at the building site.
  • No specialized tools required.
  • Costings are simple and accurate. Pricing remains firm.

Advantages for the Architect

  • Assistance can be given from an early stage in the panel design process.
  • Provide freedom from the constraints of conventional building materials.
  • Provide full CAD assembly shop/drawings with every project.
  • SIPs can be used in many different applications including housing, light commercial and industrial buildings. It is also compatible with other forms of construction. SIPs Industries panels can be used for extensions, loft conversions, barn conversions and roofs.

Advantages for the Designer

  • Assistance can be given from an early stage in the panel design process.
  • Provide design, engineering, estimating, construction support and site erection.
  • Provide full CAD assembly shop drawings with every project.
  • We are the only company offering complete Sips Industries Panel technical and construction services.
  • Our panels are designed and manufactured for a wide variety of projects. We support individual and creative designs and we fabricate the panels according to your plans.

Advantages for the Occupier

  • Comfortable occupancy – the insulating, dense and non-permeable core of the Sips Industries panel ensures your house is airtight, eliminating draughts and cold areas.
  • Maximising of space use – additional space is gained by using a panel roof system. A roof built from SIP panels does not use roof trusses and is fully insulated, allowing full use of the roof space as additional living space or for impressive high ceilings.
  • Speed of build – building with panels reduces the build time when compared to standard construction methods, resulting in easier planning, less stress, less disruption and reduced labour costs.
  • Energy efficiency – low fuel bills due to the physical characteristics of our insulated panels, the rate that heat escapes from your building is reduced compared with standard builds. A SIPs house can save up to 60% on heating bills when compared to conventional construction.
  • Quieter occupancy – sound proofing is an important factor in today’s buildings. There is an increasing need to exclude traffic and other external noise and growing recognition of the value of peaceful living or working environments. Whatever the requirements, Sips Industries panels can be included as an integral part of the sound proofing design.
