Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs): What They Are and Why They’re Great for Garden Buildings

What are SIPs Panels?

Structural insulated panels, or SIPs, are a type of construction panel that is made up of an insulating foam core sandwiched between two sheets of structural board. They are used in both commercial and residential construction, and can be found in a variety of different applications. One of the great things about SIPs is that they can be used to construct garden buildings!

When were SIP's Panels first used in the UK?

The very first SIPs were used in the United States in the 1930s, but it wasn’t until the 1970s that they began to gain popularity in the UK. SIPs construction was originally developed as a way to build homes faster and more efficiently. The panels were factory-made and then shipped to the job site, where they could be quickly assembled into a finished structure.

The benefits of using SIPs in a Garden Building

There are clear benefits to using SIPs panels in your garden building construction, when compared to traditional construction methods.

SIPs are extremely strong and durable, yet lightweight and easy to work with. They provide an excellent thermal barrier, keeping your garden building warm in the winter and cool in the summer. And because they are so well insulated, they can help you to reduce your energy bills!

Some of the benefits of using SIPs panels include:

  • Increased Energy Efficiency: SIPs are made with an insulating foam core, which helps to create a more energy-efficient building. This is because the foam core helps to keep heat in during the winter and cool air in during the summer.
  • Reduced Construction Time: Because SIPs panels are prefabricated, they can help to reduce the construction time of your garden building. This is because the panels are already cut to size and shape, and can be easily put into place on site.
  • Improved Strength and Stability: SIPs panels are also very strong and stable, which helps to create a garden building that will last for years to come. This is due to the fact that the panels are bonded together using adhesives and fasteners, which creates a very strong bond.
  • High insulation properties: They can help keep your building cool in summer and warm in the colder months, this means that your garden building can be used year round.
