Life Cycle Benefits of SIPS

The basic design concept for SIPS is elegant in its simplicity, and offers several advantages for constructing walls and roofs. There is general agreement that SIPS provide better overall air tightness and practical thermal performance than conventionally framed walls.

SIPS Environmental Advantage

By providing substantial energy savings and critical reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, the energy invested in the production and delivery of SIPS yields an exponential benefit to the environment, when compared to traditional stick framing.

The exceptional performance of SIPS as an insulator coupled with low air leakage for the built environment offers the construction industry the tools and technology needed to achieve superior thermal performance while making a significant and restorative contribution to the reduction of global warming.
