Building a SIPs Home

What makes Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) homes a good choice for self-builders? SIPs are pre-fabricated panels with a high-performance fibre-free rigid urethane insulation core sandwiched between two structural layers, typically oriented strand board (OSB). This integrated structure can be used to build energy-efficient houses, exceeding building regulations without needing thick walls.

Building a home with Kingspan TEK® SIPs offers several benefits:

  • Exceeds building regulations with improved U-values. This helps your home stay warmer in winter and cooler in summer.
  • Airtightness: Potential whole airtightness levels (0.3 to 3), helping to deliver an energy-efficient home.
  • Reduced thermal bridging: Designed to reduce heat loss and contribute to the overall thermal performance of your home.
  • Choice of thicknesses: Available in 142mm and 172mm thicknesses to suit your specific project requirements and budget.
  • Quality-assured offsite construction: Panels are pre-fabricated in a controlled environment, ensuring consistent quality and reducing on-site build times.
  • Design flexibility: Ideal for creating modern open-plan living spaces, allowing you to bring your dream home vision to life!
  • Used to create roofs. This means you can combine a Kingspan TEK® SIPs roof with our Kingspan ULTIMA timber frame wall system.
  • Recognised by major building warranty providers and certified by the BBA (British Board of Agrément)
