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
In addition, less wood is wasted at the construction site than stick built homes making
structural insulated panels favorable materials to
"green building" organizations.
