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 building" organizations.
