SIPs definition: structural insulated panels with a polystyrene core used for modern roofs & walls to build an earthquake proof house & efficient green thermal home designs for hot and cool climates. Structural insulated panels (SIPs) are high performance building panels used in construction of floors, walls, & roofs in residential & light commercial buildings.
“SIPs share the same structural properties as an I-beam or I-column. SIPs replace several components of conventional building such as studs and joists, insulation, vapor barrier and air barrier. As such they can be used for many different applications such as exterior wall, roof, floor and foundation systems.” wikipedia
