State of the Art Manufacture
Manufacturing from their modern carbon neutral production facility based just north of Edinburgh – makes deliveries nationwide very easy. Sips Eco has continued to invest significantly over the past few years in CNC manufacturing lines and the latest 3D design packages. By using the latest technology and a state of the art gluing process, they can ensure accurate, strong and durable frames delivered to site every time.
Award Winning Sips Panels
The Sips Eco SIPs Panel system consists of an insulating EPS foam core sandwiched between two structural facings, typically OSB. The panels are a very flexible product and can be used with any external cladding, be it brick, render, weatherboarding or metal cladding. Equally they can be roofed with slates, tiles, metal roofing or any other roofing system.
- Sips Eco OSB3 panels have a cover width of 1200mm with standard lengths of 2400, 2700, and 5100mm.
- EPS insulation does not deteriorate over time, which may be the case with other forms of insulation.
- EPS is 100% recyclable and has zero ODP (Ozone Depletion Potential) and GWP (Global Warming potential).
Metal Web Joists
All Sips Eco kits, if needed are supplied with engineered open metal web joists for intermediate floors. These are fabricated in the factory to their CE marking, meaning they are all fully approved by Building Control and Warranty Providers.
Our engineered metal web joist systems offer a number of benefits such as:
OPEN WEB SYSTEM. Light but strong with open webs means our joists can span further with less costly notching and drilling.
LONG SPANS. Longer spans than comparable solid timber meaning more open areas and potentially less internal load-bearing walls, saving costs.
QUIETER. Reduced deflection and vibration lead to outstanding acoustic performance.
EASIER SERVICE INSTALLATION. Open web joists lead to less notching and drilling of services and can accommodate larger services like MVHR.
LIGHTWEIGHT. Our metal web joists are easy to manhandle leading to reduced crane costs and easier manoeuvrability.
COST SAVINGS. Less drilling, reduced crane use, the potential for less load-bearing walls mean metal web joists save you money.
Build Faster & Stronger
Working within the residential, education, healthcare, leisure and commercial construction sectors, Sips Eco’s Sip Kits create structures that are seven times stronger than timber frame homes and three times stronger than brick and block builds. They are quick to build, averaging three days to complete a three-bed detached home, and use up to 60% less timber than a timber frame home, as well as being entirely airtight. Building with Sips Eco panels is up to 3x faster than traditional building methods.
All Sips Eco Panels have been rigorously fire and strength tested by BRE and Lucideon. Sips Eco are STA Gold Assure & BBA accredited and members of the Passivhaus Trust.
