Structural Insulated Panels – SIPS – are an advanced method of construction, offering superior insulation, structural strength and air-tightness over traditional construction methods or systems. SIP panels are used in floors, walls and roofs for residential, industrial, educational and commercial applications, providing ecologically friendly and energy efficient buildings.
SIP technology has been developed around composite (or sandwich) panel techniques, creating a product with excellent structural and thermal characteristics.
MgO Sandwich panel is a composite building material. They consist of a sandwich of two layers of structural board with an insulating foam in between. Panel skins are magnesium oxide boards. Insulation core can be Expanded Polystyrene(EPS), Extruded Polystyrene(XPS).
Facings materials vary with the advanced techniques, MgO board, fiber cement board, wood bonded cement board, etc. These boards currently have replaced traditional facing.
