STRUCTURALLY INSULATED PANEL (SIP)SYSTEM
Avoid Common Problems
These double sheathed, foam core wall panels are processed off-site, and then assembled like lego in a fraction of the time at the job location. For sheathing, common materials include a variety of cementitious boards, magnesium boards, oriented strand board (OSB), plywood, and even metal.
The fault in the SIP structure design lies in the lack of care given to the plates (the horizontal lengths that run under the bottom and on top of the panels) and splines (the vertical connections between panels). Because there is a lack of vapor barrier at these vulnerable intersections, energy and moisture transference is inevitable. The result is mold formation, leaking and cracking. Knowing this, Hulks SIP System is designed to tackle these joints from inside out, eliminating the problems, and brings these structures close to zero energy loss (NET 0).
