Enercept supports the Timber Framers Guild in their quest to preserve the craft of building timber frames.
Our Visionary Partners support the future of timber framing by supporting the Timber Framers Guild at the highest level.
Enercept has been building structurally insulated panels for nearly 40 years.
The hand-crafted timbers are works of art. And, not only do they look great, they are also structurally sound. Insulation plays a key role within the building envelope. Enercept is proud to partner with and support such an amazing community. Timber framing is a distinctive style of building construction in which heavy timbers frame the structure instead of more slender dimensional lumber (for example, 2 x 6-in.). Timber framing was a building practice used throughout the world until toughly 1900 when the demand for cheap, fast housing brought dimensional lumber to the construction forefront. In the 1970s, craftsman revived the timber framing tradition in the United States and have ushered the design style into the modern era.
Enercept SIPs can surround an entire timber frame, leaving all the majestic timber visible in the interior and providing an airtight barrier. A SIP is composed of an insulating foam core (EPS) sandwiched between two structural facings, (OSB) oriented strand board. The result is a building system that is extremely strong, energy efficient, and cost-effective. One of the biggest benefits of using Enercept is that we offer the most fully customizable SIPs on the market.
