The Versatility of Sip Extensions

SIP Panels, through their strength and ease of connection, offer more versatility than other construction materials, allowing possibilities beyond the conventional; such as sloping roof panels creating an open space that when utilised, properly maximises space and provides an insulated room that will stay warm in winter, and nice and cool in summer.

See also our sister site dedicated to SIP extension kits.

SIPs are 3 times stronger than brick built, and 7 times stronger than timber framed buildings.

You can also choose the exterior look you want.  Brick slips tend to be the most used, but cladding is also very popular and there is a selection of colours and styles to choose from. Or if you prefer to render the outside this can be painted in a range of colours.

What is a SIP panel?

SIP - Structurally Insulated Panel

SIPs or Structurally Insulated Panels consist of two outer layers of Oriented Strand Board (OSB) sandwiched around a polyurethane (PU) foam core.

Each panel is durable, lightweight and extremely strong. SIPs are extremely well insulated and airtight, resulting in a structure that requires less energy to heat and one that provides better air quality for the user.

SIP panels have been used in the USA, Canada, Japan and Europe since the 1950s where they have become a mainstream building material for constructing homes. Now, SIPs are becoming increasingly popular here in the UK.

Sip panels are a structurally sound framed system. There’s no risk of compression shrinkage or cold bridging that is normally associated with stud walls and other traditional methods.

The Manufacturing Process

Highly engineered panel manufacture

Constructed under controlled conditions at our factory, our SIP panels have a high strength-to-weight ratio allowing large sections of your construction to be fitted at once, speeding up the time required on site.

These Structurally Insulated Panels (SIPs) are connected with a unique jointing system for walls and roofs.

SIPs are fabricated using timber from sustainable sources, they use less timber than typical timber frames and are one of the most economical and eco-friendly forms of construction.
