No trees are used in the manufacturing of our PowrPanel™ SIPs panels. They
of 6" or 8" thick EPS foam slabs sandwiched between .030 aluminum
combination, when chemically laminated forms a very strong
structural panel with outstanding
insulation values and incredible span
capabilities. EPS foam and aluminum are both completely
interlocking panels are used to form the exterior walls and roofs in commercial
buildings. Our structures are engineered for winds up to 150 mph .
Any type of finish can be applied to the panels, stucco, siding, brick, stone, etc.
Our structures are fire resistant, surpassing the requirements for a non-load
fire endurance rating from either side of the panel. When combined
with interior drywall and exterior stucco or brick they are near fireproof.
Aluminum skins provide a double radiant barrier for the roof and walls of the
building. In addition to improving air quality this aluminum/foam
combination saves up to 50% or more in energy costs.
Compared to a building envelope constructed with conventional framing, the
of SIPS panels can result in a shell that has a 58% better thermal
according to tests performed by the University of
Tennessee and the the U.S. Department of Energy's Oak Ridge Laboratory.
High R-factor is just one measurement with aluminum SIPS. The radiant barrier and tightness of the overall envelope is the key to extreme
