At Enercept we like to say that structural insulated panels (SIPs) are “the future of framing,” but in truth, the future is now. Enercept has been fabricating SIPS since 1981, and has built a reputation for delivering the most customized SIPs on the market. That is why we are the “builders’ choice.”
Enercept’s solid core of expanded polystyrene (EPS) eliminates the thermal bridging, or cold spots,
common with traditional insulation. What’s more, Enercept insulation maintains its integrity over time
and won’t settle or absorb moisture. Your SIPs home will be 2.5 times stronger than other homes;
laminating the exterior and interior of the EPS core with oriented strand board (OSB) gives the SIPs an I-beam-like strength.
Because you are insulating, sheathing and framing in just one step, you will save time — and money — in
construction. Moreover, since the entire inside wall is sheathed with 7/16” OSB, hanging sheetrock,
cabinets, curtains and even pictures is easier and faster than in other homes.
Enercept clients are sold on the SIPs when they realize that SIPs are an improvement upon stick-framing. SIPs take what’s good about sticks (straightforward building, ease of use and customization) and upgrade all the specs, from improving structural capabilities, to increasing energy efficiency, to speeding up installation while keeping the project fully customizable. Compared to the traditional stick-built route, SIPs provide a stronger, more robust and highly energy-efficient structure built for a lifetime.
Enercept Structural Insulated Panels have also been approved by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) as specified in Structural Engineering Bulletin Number 1067.

Quieter and Healthier Environment
EPS insulation is an excellent sound barrier and reduces wind and other outside noises. The naturally tight construction of a SIP shell prevents dust and other allergens from penetrating the home.

Fact: Though there are many terms associated with building panels, such as “sandwich panels” and “stress-skin panels. Many of these panels are non-structural and some have no insulation. These terms are not necessarily interchangeable. Be sure you're comparing apples to apples.
