SIPs Cold Bridging
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.

Where is cold bridging likely to occur? 
• Between walls & floor/walls & roof 
• Holes in the construction to allow for cables & pipes 
• Window & door reveals 
 
How do Sips prevent this? 
Our award-winning system uses Sip joining splines to connect the panels, thus providing continuous insulation and high levels of air tightness compared to a standard timber frame kit. Traditional timber frame has a much lower thermal resistance and has been known to lose in excess of 30% of a household’s energy.
