What are Structural Insulated Panels?
Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs)- a building material that
consists of panels made from a thick layer of foam (polystyrene
or polyurethane) sandwiched between two layers of Oriented
Strand Board (OSB). Structural panels offer very effective
insulating qualities, rapid installation, and consistent quality
(minimizing waste). The use of OSB or waferboard for facings is
considered a positive use of wood resources. In addition, less
wood is wasted at the construction site than stick built homes
making structural insulated panels favorable materials to "green

DPO Construction focuses on building environmentally friendly
homes. Check out the section on Structural Insulated Panels
(SIPS) on the site.
Iowa SIPs (Structurally Insulated Panels) are strong, durable
and super-insulated panels ready for construction. A unique
molding process fuses polyurethane insulation between two
pieces of OSB, making them perfect for hot and cold climates.
