What are SIPs?
Structural insulated panels (SIPs) are high performance building panels used in floors, walls and roofs for residential and light commercial buildings. The panels are made by sandwiching a core of rigid foam plastic insulation between two structural facings. Other skin materials can be used for specific purposes. SIPs are manufactured under factory-controlled conditions and can be custom designed for each project. The result is a building system that is extremely strong, energy-efficient and cost effective. Building with SIPs will save you time, money and labor.
MgO SIPs Have Even More Benefits than Traditional SIPs
MgO SIPs differ from traditional SIPs in several ways. Firstly, they do not have OSB (oriented strand board) face sheets. Instead have Magnesium Oxide (MgO) face sheets. The MgO face sheets are more durable, unaffected by fire, water, water vapor, or insects. Also, they do not need an additional layer of gypsum board prior to finishing the interior.
Even better, the MgO SIPs from SIPs Madison have face sheets that are made with a specially formulated MgO composition. We offer a variety of insulation core materials that are bonded together with superior adhesives featuring the Gluestream® equipment. Our MgO panels provide a reliable and environmental-friendly building component for use in nearly any project.
