Insulspan® manufactures and delivers high-performance, state-of-the-art Structural Insulating Panels (SIPs) throughout North America for use as walls, roofs, and floors in residential and commercial buildings. The SIPs, which are created by structurally laminating a continuous core of expanded polystyrene (EPS) insulation between two performance-rated oriented strand boards (OSB), are precision-cut to exact design specifications in a controlled manufacturing environment and are delivered ready-to-assemble.
Insulspan Structural Insulating Panel Systems (SIPs) are used to create a building’s structural wall frame and replace trusses on roof systems to form an extremely energy-efficient structural “envelope.” The high R-value of the SIP panels and continuous core of EPS minimizes air leakage and heat loss resulting in high energy efficiency ratings and significantly lower energy costs.
A structural building envelope made of SIPs is so energy efficient that BASF chose Insulspan® SIPs for inclusion in its pioneering “Home, Sweet Hybrid Home,” the Net Zero Energy House built in a residential development in Paterson, New Jersey. This home recently earned a “Platinum” rating from the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED®-H Rating System, one of only two houses in the whole of North America to achieve that rating.
In addition, the LEED® for Homes Rating System now grants certification credits for the use of SIPs in home construction. The LEED®-H Rating System specifically recognizes the “Material and Resource Efficiency” of SIPS.
Insulspan, with more than 30 years’ experience in the building industry, is a leading brand of SIPs in North America. In 2006, Insulspan featured prominently in a construction project that the Public Broadcasting System producers called “the centerpiece” of This Old House’s 25th Anniversary. Insulspan SIPs were also selected as the structural insulating materials of choice for Sunset Magazine’s “Celebration Idea House” built in California. Insulspan also provided the roof for B.C. Canada Place built at the 2006 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games in Torino, Italy, to showcase Canada’s hosting of the 2010 Olympic Winter Games. Insulspan SIPS are the only SIPS in North America manufactured under ISO 9000 certification and the only SIPS with both U.S. and Canadian code listings.
