SIP TECHNOLOGY FAQ - WHAT IS SIP? HOUSE CONTACT


Sip panel is a structurally insulated building panel, 1250x2500mm standard which is a high performance, very strong, energy efficient pre-insulated panel. It then
consists of external OSB, and internal insulation EPS, internal OSB with glue pressed. The material is cut in size or shaped into a desired shape. Just as needed.

What can be built from SIP panels?
Everything can be built, from a barn to an apartment building. Sip panels are divided into: floor, partition, exterior wall, partition, ceiling panel - for this purpose, the necessary technical characteristics of the Sip panel are produced.

How much does a SIP panel cost?
Sip panels are available in different types and with different technical functions. From partitions to ceiling panels. For example, 8 mm thick OSB can be used in partitions, 22 mm OSB can be used in floors, etc. The thickness of the insulation also varies depending on the application. The actual cost of SIP ㎡ depends on the complexity of the project. By using Sip panels, you save up to 50% on construction time and up to 60% on labour costs. The price of a similar insulated building is about 30%, but again everything depends on the complexity of the project. Ask for an offer and we'll answer info@sipelement.eu

Can I build them myself?
Yes, you can. We can offer customer support for each customer or the ability to provide construction services.

Can SIP panels be used to renovate an existing building?
Yes, of course, depending on the needs, we can also produce SIP panels for special needs. Internal surface or fireproof panels.

How fireproof is the SIP panel?
The Sip panel is covered on both sides of the OSB surface. OSB does not burn but shines in the event of an open fire. EPS Sip inside the panel also does not burn with an open fire but melts. Thus, the SIP panel is more fireproof than a regular wooden construction and a poor fire conductor. A house made of SIP panels is very airtight, which in turn prevents the spread of the fire - there is no oxygen available for the fire to spread.

Are our houses designed for year-round use?
All our buildings are built with SIP panels and are available all year round. The houses are very energy efficient and have low heating costs.

Do houses need a foundation?
Houses do not need a foundation, only the building blocks on which the house is located For softer bases, it is necessary to fill the base of building blocks with gravel. It i also possible to place houses on a screw foundation.

What type of EPS is used for insulation?
Inside the EPS, sip panel we use products from Estonian manufacturers. EPS is 98% airtight, providing better U (thermal conductivity) values.

What are the U-values on your constructions?
Our standard wall panels can achieve values between 0.23 and 0.12 without additional insulation. It all depends on the thickness of the panel insulation.

How good or bad does the SIP panel control audio?
Since the SIP panel is 98% airtight, the sound is very poorly transmitted. And it is probably the best material to build a more soundproofed unit.

What are the benefits of SIP panels?
Materials with better insulation and air tightness than anything else with similar thickness and also efficient. A thinner wall with corresponding insulation provides additional ㎡ and the building is 2-3 times stronger in construction than an ordinary wooden chair. Building speed and environmental friendliness ensure savings unlike other materials.

Are our houses designed for year-round use?
All our buildings are built with SIP panels and are usable all year round. The houses are very energy efficient and have low heating costs.

Do houses need a foundation?
The houses do not need a foundation, it is only the building blocks on which you can build the house. As for softer grounds, it is necessary to fill the base of the building blocks with gravel. It is also possible to place houses on a screw foundation.

Do I need a building permit?
Houses that are 20㎡ do not require building permits or project specifications, it is enough for the municipality to make a notice of construction. In rural areas, i.e. on larger lots, notification is also not required..

Is transportation included in the price of the house?
No, added depending on the distance.

Can I order a house according to my project?
You still can.

How big a house can I order from you?
The bigger the better.
