Survey Shows in SIP Panel Industry

Filed under: General, SIPs — Tags: , , — admin @ 12:44 pm

A recent survey conducted by the Structural Insulated Panel Association, SIPA, identified 78 companies in the US and Canada that manufactured SIPs in 2007, for a total of 69 million sqft of sandwich panels… This is a 4.5% increase from the previous year.

The survey mentions that although residential SIP construction has slowed through the housing decline, the use of SIP sandwich panels has increased greatly in commercial construction.

SIPs and Sandwich Panels Can Help Climate Change

Filed under: General — Tags: , , , — admin @ 8:43 am

In the middle of last March at the annual meeting for the Structural Insulated Panel Associations (SIPA), the President of the Federation of American Scientists (FAS), Mr. Henry Kelly, gave a lecture to the building panel and SIP construction industry on climate change, energy use, savings, and the role sandwich panels can play in reducing energy consumption.

What it boils down to, is residential and commercial buildings are significant contributors of greenhouse gas emissions. Heating and cooling of these buildings is currently extremely inefficient, and with the successful implementation of SIPs and insulated sandwich panels as a whole, vast amounts of energy can be saved. The potential environmental gains domestically are great, but even better for growing countries abroad.
