Structural Insulated Panels — a Green Alternative
Construction processes have a notable impact on the environment. Constructers are increasingly making use of sustainable building methods that use less energy and minimize carbon dioxide emissions—ultimately, playing a role in effectively combating global climate change. Since buildings use tremendous amounts of natural resources, the construction of sustainable buildings focuses on using these resources efficiently while simultaneously minimizing the pollution.
As one of the most insulated and airtight building systems; Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) are an inherently green product. The amount of energy required to heat or cool a room can be reduced by 50% in an airtight SIP building.
Additionally, the advanced Magnesium Oxide SIP technology offers impeccable structural strength and superior insulation over traditional building systems. The MgO SIP panels are used in roofs, walls and floors of commercial and residential applications, providing energy efficient and environmentally-friendly buildings.
Let’s look at some of the other green benefits that SIPs have to offer:
No Toxic Materials
MgO SIP panels consist of expanded polystyrene sandwiched between two laminated sheets of magnesium oxide boards. Since there aren’t any toxic materials like organic solvents, asbestos or heavy materials used in their construction, SIPs are 100% safe to use.
In addition, SIP panels prevent mold growth, owing to their moisture-resistant nature. This is also the reason why this building system is ideal for wet and humid climates. Plus, their tough structure offers high resistance to impact, making them perfect for regions prone to hurricanes.
Studies show that China was responsible for 28.3 % of the global carbon dioxide emissions in 2017 alone. The primary causes were the fossil fuels burned for heat, use of products that emit greenhouse gases and handling of toxic waste.
That’s where eco-friendly MgO SIPs come in! They don’t release harmful gases into the air—setting them apart from the use of plywood and particle boards in building systems. Additionally, the construction process of SIPs produces a lot less waste at job sites—reducing costs and the amount of materials that eventually end up in a landfill.
MgO SIP panels are revolutionizing the construction process in a green and ecological way.
Superb Energy Efficiency
One of the main reasons why the use of SIPs has blown up the marketplace is its superior thermal performance. Industries measure energy efficiency through the measure of R-values. R-values measure how well a material slows the heat movement through it.
Premier SIPs have outperformed traditional construction materials in energy efficiency and R-value comparison. Less air movement through SIPs results in lower energy bills, less drafts and noise penetration. This makes for a welcoming and controllable indoor environment with improved air quality.
