Sandwich panels / Structural Insulated Panels (Fiber Cement & OSB Facing SIP)
Structural insulated panels (SIPs) are high-performance building materials used in exterior wall, partition wall, roof and floor for residential and light commercial construction. The panels are made by sandwiching a core of rigid foam insulation (EPS, PU, XPS and so on) between two skins of structural/engineered panels like oriented strand board (OSB), fiber cement board and so on. SIPs are engineered to provide more durable, excellent energy efficient homes and commercial buildings.
Using SIPs to create a high performance building envelope is the first step to producing a green building that is earthquake-resistant, more energy efficient and cost effective.
