Structural insulated panels are one of the most efficient and sustainable construction materials, both during manufacture and construction, and long after.

SIP panels are traditionally made with timber; a renewable resource that uses five times less energy to produce than concrete and six times less than steel. The outer faces of the panels are made using oriented strand board (OSB) using young, fast-growing trees from plantations managed by the FSC. SIPs are also manufactured using around 40% less timber than traditional methods, making them a faster, leaner and smarter method of construction.

In addition to their sustainable manufacture, SIP panels greatly increase the thermal efficiency of buildings thanks to their low U-Value, with values as low as 0.10W/m²K being achieved. These insulating properties reduce the need for artificial heating methods, decreasing the levels of harmful CO2 emissions as well as the cost of heating bills.

At Sips UK, we are committed to being as sustainable as possible throughout every stage of the SIP panel process. Not only do we ensure all our timber is sourced from PEFC, SFI and FSC certified suppliers, but we also strive to keep our environmental impact and waste to a minimum during manufacture by recycling material back into the manufacturing process.
