Tips for SIPs
Clean simple designs work best.
Maximise the opportunity for a healthy indoor environment.
Install a heat recovery ventilation system - using a bypass heat exchanger.
Use full panels wherever possible, or easy fractions of panels (1/2, 1/3, 1/4).
Work within standard panel heights of 2.44, 2.74, 3.0, 6.1 for most effective use of panels. All panels are 1.22 wide.
Minimise the size of heating/cooling units.
Allow for the much greater insulation capabilities of SIPs.
Minimise panel cuts.
Make use of the boundary joist in the roof panel as a lintel.
Floor to ceiling windows are super easy!
Use the loft space!
Free extra floor space available - make the most of it!
