SIPs are the 21st Century Building Material
Structural insulated panels (SIPs) are a high performance building system for residential and light commercial construction. The panels consist of an insulating foam core sandwiched between two structural facings, typically oriented strand board (OSB). SIPs are manufactured under factory controlled conditions and can be fabricated to fit nearly any building design. 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.
Are Structural Insulated Panels More Expensive?
Building with SIPs generally costs about the same as building with wood frame construction when you factor in the labor savings resulting from shorter construction time and less jobsite waste. Other savings are realized because smaller heating and cooling systems are required with SIP construction.
What makes our SIPS different?
EcoScape Structurally Integrated Panels are comprised of revolutionary composite facings that include strands of structural fibres such as fibreglass, Kevlar and Aramid which are consolidated with a thermal plastic carrier and are in turn integrated with a structural framework containing an insulating core material. Our product is unique in the industry; it’s different than anything else that has been done in the past. Our skin material is engineered to be impact resistant and testing has proven that it meets the Dade County, FL impact requirements. Its unmatched strength-to-weight ratio allows EcoScape panels to replace steel, concrete, wood and other structural materials conventionally used. Our panels can be used in virtually unlimited applications and as the structure, insulation and interior and exterior finishes are integral to our panels, structures are pretty much ready to occupy upon completion of installation.
