Introduction to SIPS

Structural Insulated Panels (SIPS) were first introduced into the UK in the 1970’s and to this day SIPS are still seen as a novel form of construction although it has been a long established form of construction in America and Scandinavian countries. However, several factors including more stringent building regulations aiming for lower U-Values, new government reports calling for improvements in quality and efficiency and environmental awareness in the building industry have led to the recent rapid growth in the popularity of SIPS. Structural Insulated Panels (SIPS) technology is regarded by many influential figures as the future of the construction industry in the UK & Ireland.



SIPS are a sandwich of oriented strand board (OSB/3) with an insulating rigid Polyurethane (PUR) core. The polyurethane (PUR) core used in the SIP Building Systems Structural Insulated Panels is CFC/HCFC-free with zero Ozone Depletion Potential and has a Low Global Warming Potential (GWP).

The OSB and the foam are rigidly bonded together resulting in a strong, stiff, highly insulated panel suitable for structural use in buildings.


Application of SIPS

Structural Insulated Panels are used in all types of construction from;

  • Schools
  • Hotels

  • Hospitals
  • Houses
  • Modular Buildings
  • Leisure Homes

  • Security Lodges
  • Barn Conversions
  • Loft Conversions
  • Flat Roofs


Key Advantages of SIPS

Excellent Thermal Performance - U-value as low as 0.10 w/m²k, limited cold bridging and superior air tightness.

Save Construction Time And Cost - Large engineered components.

Space-Maximising Design - Open habitable roof space could transform a 3-bed house to a 5-bed house for little extra cost.

Light-Weight Structural Strength - The average weight per sqm of a Structural Insulated Panel is 20kg.
