Structural Insulated Panels
Structural Insulated Panels (otherwise known as ‘SIPs’) are an efficient alternative to traditional timber frames used within the UK construction industry.
SIPs are typically made from sheets of Oriented Strand Board (OSB) encasing an insulating core material. This results in a structural insulated panel that is incredibly strong, durable and lightweight.
Owing to their design, buildings constructed with SIPs panels regularly achieve significant decreases in their energy and heating consumption. This is because SIPs panels create spaces that are well insulated with high levels of airtightness, meaning less heating is required throughout the year.
Timber, worldwide, is traditionally the most widely used building material. It is easy to handle, natural and brings flexibility to design.
Today, many buildings are built with a traditional timber frame structure and this trend is growing as Building Regulations / Standards strive for better thermal performance and the construction industry increasingly moves towards faster and lighter methods of construction. Structural Insulated Panel (SIP) technology is the next generation of timber-based construction.
In the UK and Ireland, demand for off-site construction methods such as SIPs is growing rapidly. This is being driven by factors such as the availability of on-site skills being at an all-time low.
Building Regulations / Standards are also demanding much higher levels of energy efficiency. This is challenging many traditional construction systems and, in some instances, forcing people to look at alternative ways of meeting the requirements more economically.
Unparalleled energy efficiency combined with high build speed and low site wastage makes the Kingspan TEK® Building System a very cost-effective way of achieving and exceeding the thermal requirements of the Building Regulations / Standards.
