The Benefits of Structural Insulated Panels

Using SuperSIPs means:

  • Construction times are shorter and labour costs are cheaper
  • SuperSIPs panels can reduce installation time by up to 60%
  • SuperSIPs roof structures do not require roof trusses, this creates an open and habitable warm room in the roof.
  • A SIPs structure is a lightweight shell and therefore does not require a heavy foundation design.
  • A SIPs structure is pre-engineered off-site to avoid both the additional labour and the ever increasing cost of the safe disposal of waste materials.
  • Insulation is built into SuperSIPs panels, negating the need to install further insulation during the construction process
  • SuperSIPs negate the need for bricklayers or masons
  • Heating costs are much lower
  • Unbeatable insulation value means energy costs can be reduced by up to 60% over conventional construction
  • SuperSIPs create an air tight structure with no heat loss or condensation
  • Manufacturing is greener
  • Waste from creating SIPs can be recycled
  • 50% less raw timber is needed to manufacture SIPs than with conventional timber frame structures
  • The core insulation is polyurethane foam (PUR) which is CFC and HCFC free and has an ozone depletion potential of zero.
  • SIPs are even the panel of choice for structures built in the Antarctic!
