What is a SIP Building?
SIP Buildings employ Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs), which are one of the most airtight and well-insulated building systems available.
Sip building panels are constructed from an insulating foam core sandwiched between two structural facings, typically made of oriented strand board (OSB).
SIPs afford impressive thermal performance and airtightness. With their consistently high insulating properties, they dramatically reduce energy consumption.
SIPs disrupt the energy-intensive processes typically associated with construction, advocating instead for lean, efficient installation. The panels have quick installation times, and remarkable strength, making them an attractive option for modern builders and architects.
Do SIP Buildings need foundations?
A building made of sip panels has a relatively low weight, so concrete foundations are not needed. This is why the versatility, price, and strength of our ground screws or screw piles are the perfect pairing for sip buildings.
Sip building solutions are a modern construction approach, and are being commonly used in SIP house building with modern house designs, eco houses, passive houses as well as commercial buildings of all sizes.
Use RADIX’s screw foundations for your SIP building
Leveraging RADIX’s ground screw range or screw pile range of foundations for your next project define a trajectory not just for the future of buildings but for sustainable and efficient infrastructural development.
