What are Structural Insulated Panels (SIPS)?
Structural Insulated Panels (SIPS) are prefabricated insulated structural panels used in construction for floors, walls, ceilings, and roofs. They replace conventional stud or “stick frame” construction. These panels are made at the factory and shipped directly to job sites. SIPs may be called foam-core panels, stress-skin panels, sandwich panels, or structural foam panels.
SIPs are today’s building material for strength, durability, and energy efficiency. They consist of two outer skins of oriented strand board (OSB) and an inner core of an insulating material to form a monolithic unit. These components, laminated together, provide a building panel that needs no additional frame or skeleton for support.
