Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) have a number of uses in the construction industry. From roofing to flooring, SIP panels are not only cost effective, but they’re naturally greener and energy efficient. Not only that, but SIP houses can be erected in a matter of days. 
 
But what exactly are the top five uses of Structural Insulated Panels? We explore them here. 
SIP panels can be used as a flooring system. They serve as structural framing, insulation and an air barrier on one product, whilst providing a solid, quiet and warm floor. You’ll more frequently find them in new builds and modular homes. 
SIP homes can be constructed considerably quicker that traditionally framed buildings. A properly trained Structural Insulated Panels (SIP) installation crew can cut framing time by as much as 55% compared to conventional timber framing. 
 
What does that mean in reality? When using SIPS, construction of a typical two-story 200m² house, will normally take between five to seven days to erect a shell and roof. 
Thermal bridging, or cold bridging is where there is a weak spot in the insulation surrounding a house. These occur when there is a break in continuity, creating a path of least resistance for heat transfer between an area or component of an object which has a higher thermal conductivity than that of the surrounding materials
