SIPs Panels (Structural Insulated Panels)
Insulation is key to protecting your home from high energy bills, since air leakage is the premier reason for heat loss in most houses tested. This is an element we incorporate into your oak frame build with the use of Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs Panels).
We have been producing our own custom made SIPS for over ten years – longer than any other oak frame manufacturer in the UK. The SIPs panels are fixed around the outside of our timber frames and control the flow of heat, air and sound. This encapsulation makes for a home that has minimal ‘cold bridging’, providing outstanding protection from the cold in winter and maintaining a cool house in the summer.
People may be under the misconception that SIPS can only be used in very simple, prefabricated designs, when in reality they are flexible and can be tailored to the needs of any building.
