What are SIPs?
Structural insulated panels are high-performance products used in exterior walls, roofs, and floors for residential and light commercial construction. SIPs are made by sandwiching a core of rigid foam insulation between two skins of structural sheathing, typically oriented strand board (OSB), cement (MgO), or steel. SIPs build better houses.

SIPs Q&A Brochure (pdf)

SIPs Q&A Brochure (pdf)

Q: What are structural insulated panels?
A: Structural insulated panels (SIPs) are high performance building panels used in floors, walls, and roofs for residential and light commercial buildings. The panels are typically made by sandwiching a core of rigid foam plastic insulation between two structural skins of oriented strand board (OSB). Other skin material can be used for specific purposes. SIPs are manufactured under factory controlled conditions and can be custom designed for each home. The result is a building system that is extremely strong, energy efficient and cost effective. Building with SIPs will save you time, money and labor.
