SIPs, are an advanced, modern method of Timber Frame construction,
offering far superior insulation, structural strength and air-tightness
than traditional systems
The SIPCO BBA certificates states that structural insulated panels have a durability comparable to that of OSB/3 to BS EN 300:2006. Therefore, provided the installation remains weathertight, a life of at least 60 years may be expected for SIPS.
Additional information can be found within the Structural Timber Association SIPS Technical Bulletin 5 and SIPS Pocket Guide. The SIPCO BBA Certificate provides further information on protection of the building and long-term maintenance and repair requirements.
