A common question that we get asked about our Sips is if plumbing can be installed within the Sips panels. The short answer is yes - plumbing can be run through sips walls as long as there are a few requirements met. In a sips structure, pipes can be incorporated into the walls as long as it is only within the panel and does not cross through any splines or structural timbers. If pipes were to pass through these areas, it would affect the structural stability of the building. When running pipes through your panels you must ensure the hole it the correct size for the pipe and that the channel is fully sealed off after you have completed the running of the pipe. This will ensure you are minimising the heat loss from these channels.
