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.
