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.
