What are Structural Insulated Panels?
Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) join high-performance rigid foam insulation to Oriented Strand Board (OSB) or plywood. The thickness of foam is adjusted to increase R-Value. Exterior and interior facings are shown with standard OSB. Drywall is field applied as needed. The first SIP-type construction was made in 1935 and the buildings are still in use today, nearly 70 years later.
Every EPS home package includes pre-assembled panels, insulated headers along with window and door cutouts and horizontal and vertical electrical chases. Using EPS roof panels, a home can have high vaulted ceilings.
Ridge beams with EPS panels can eliminate trusses and open your vaulted great room with extremely high R-values and air-tight panel systems.
