SIP - BUILDING
HIGH PERFORMANCE OF SIPS BUILDING
Quacent® Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) offer several advantages over traditional stick frame construction. The RTA system consists of a core of expanded polystyrene (EPS) insulation and engineered oriented strand board (OSB) or fiber cement board laminated to the top and bottom faces. The strength and quality of the SIPs make them a popular choice for builders. In addition to their superior construction, SIPs also offer design flexibility, allowing for creative and interesting architectural possibilities.
The Quacent SIP system not only provides superior structural strength and durability, but it also offers exceptional design flexibility. Using laminated performance-rated oriented strand board (OSB) or fiber cement board, SIPs allow for reduced use of dimensional lumber in building design. Additionally, SIPs can span large distances, providing unique and interesting design opportunities for architects and homeowners.
Because of the strength and size of SIPs, they can span significant expanses within a structure, creating more design flexibility and unique spaces than traditional stick framing. From vaulted volume spaces to deep overhangs and larger open spaces, SIPs can conform to a variety of architectural styles without sacrificing structural strength. With SIPs, designing and building large, open spaces is easier than ever.
One of the key advantages of Quacent SIPs is their exceptional structural strength, which is comparable to that of steel I-beams. This is due to the solid core, pre-cut SIP panels that are precisely manufactured to match computer-drawn specifications. The EPS insulation core acts as a web while the OSB sheathing serves as flanges. The continuous lamination of the EPS insulation to the OSB provides both strength and resistance to impact. SIPs have demonstrated their durability and resilience in extreme weather conditions and natural disasters like hurricanes, tornadoes, and earthquakes.
In fact, according to the Department of Energy’s Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Clearinghouse, SIPs perform better during tornadoes than traditional stick framing because they have fewer seams and gaps in the walls.
SIPs are also used for structural roof sections and floors, making them an all-around solution for building construction. Our comprehensive ready-to-assemble system approach sets us apart from the competition.
To ensure a high-quality construction project, Quacent SIP manufacturing utilizes a quality management system (QMS) and detailed drawings with exacting specifications from our design team. Our CNC machines and cutting team precisely cut the panels for your project, resulting in superior materials and decreased subcontractor costs.
Our quality construction process is also designed to make installation easier and faster. With pre-cut panels and an Installation Guide, there is little need for on-the-fly calculations, reducing the risk of errors and ensuring a longer-lasting, higher quality structure.
Quacent SIPs offer a superior building solution that not only saves time and money but also results in a higher quality, more durable structure.
