What are the main benefits of SIPs panels?

Here we’ve listed some of the main advantages when using our high-performance SIPs polystyrene panels for your project:

  • Up to 3x faster than traditional methods - erect a typical house within a week
  • Reduced U-Values as low as 0.10 W/m2K - leading to increased space with a thinner wall
  • 90% less wastage on site (as our panels are manufactured off-site)
  • Zero reliance on weather conditions - for minimal disruption to the critical path
  • Lightweight - ideal for sites in city centres with access restrictions
  • Easier installation - with reduced drilling and crane use on site
  • Huge savings on labour - with reduced number of trades and supervision on site
  • 60% less timber than traditional build methods
  • Increased usable roof space - fully-insulated roofs without trusses
  • Build up to 4 storeys with SIPs (or five with blockwork or steel first storey)
  • 7x stronger than timber frame - and 3x stronger than brick and block
  • Excellent insulation values for increased resale value
  • Airtight, with reduced cold bridging
  • Lower annual energy costs
  • Does not degrade or deteriorate over time
  • Naturally more eco-friendly than other build types

What are the Benefits of SIP Extensions for Your Home?

Our structural insulated panels are ideal for home extensions for a number of reasons:

Firstly, SIP panels are prefabricated off site in factory conditions, meaning they are not subject to site weather conditions; this also makes them stronger.  They can be delivered pre-cut in manageable sized panels making them easy to construct on tight sites, or sites with limited access.

SIPs are very speedy to erect; a home extension can be walled and roofed quicker than with other forms of construction, making it not only cheaper, but easier and quicker to knock-through.

And finally, SIP panels are insulated, so there’s no need for cavity or internal insulation when building your SIP extension.  This makes things far simpler when constructing your home’s new extension.

Our high-strength, high-performance SIP panels are:

  • Non-toxic
  • Low carbon footprint
  • Made with 100% recyclable EPS
  • Water resistant
  • Fire rated
  • Breathable
  • Mould resistant
  • Extremely Strong

Here's what some of our customers are saying:

"We are very pleased with the quality of product and services Sips Eco Panels offer and the entire build process has both matched and exceeded our expectations."

Richard Weller, Stratford Upon Avon
