Most American families spend the majority of their time indoors. Providing a healthy indoor environment is critical to our families well being. The technology of Structural Insulated Panels can help provide a healthier home by providing Air Control. This Air Control can assist in the of control pollution, humidity, chemicals and even sound. SIPs can even help provide healthier, filtered air and even keep some common pest at bay.
Stop the Infiltration
SIPs can provide an envelop that is super tight and limits unwanted outside air from coming. Advanced Structural Framing that SIPS provide accounts for dramatic details that air more airtight.
Exchange with Clean
When using Structural Insulated Panels it is always recommended to install an air exchanger or some other form of modern mechanical ventilation. Using a HEPA or Ion filter can greatly reduce indoor air pollutants and make the SIPs environment even healthier.
The solid, continuous design of insulated panels coupled with the dehumidifying properties of modern ventilation eliminates all possibilities of mold growth within the structure. Mold has been link to aggravating asthma, emphysema and other breathing conditions
VOCs and Off Gassing
Our SIPs are manufactured using what is known as "the safe insulation," Expanded Polystyrene (EPS). EPS insulation goes not use chemical gasses for blowing agents and does not suffer from the press of "off-gassing" which can be very harmful. Our EPS SIPs do not contain HCFCs or CFCs which are also know to cause problems with atmospheric ozone.
SIPs by their very nature are more soundproof than most systems. Add certain sound deadening drywall and your can achieve a better STC Rating. Keeping out noise from airports, railroads, trucks or even sirens with a quieter home, can help provide better quality sleep. sleep. Numerous studies have found that insufficient sleep increases a person's risk of developing serious medical conditions, including obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease.
Repel and Protect
Our foam panels are treated with a soap product know as borate. This harmless to humans product, is know to deter termites and other harmful pests. Many pest have been known to cause serious health issues. Remember, no product is perfect and it is always recommended to get professional pest advice when building wood structures.
