R-Control SIPs meet Building Codes

Structural Insulated Panels meet Building Codes.

SIPs meet code requirements R-Control SIPs meet building codes because they have been extensively tested by nationally recognized laboratories. R-Control SIPs meet building codes for structural and fire code regulations, greatly reducing liability for designers using SIPs. For 30 years, R-Control SIPs have shown they’re the strongest, most reliable, and effective SIPs available anywhere.

R-Control SIPs Meet Building Codes – here’s why

R-Control SIPs are a strong structural system consisting of Foam-Control® EPS (expanded polystyrene) insulation laminated between sheets of structural engineered sheathing. This simple sandwich forms an amazingly strong structural panel. This is why structural insulated panels meet building codes.

Structural insulated panels meet building codes, but there’s much more to a quality SIP than that. That’s why R-Control SIPs are also heavyweights against the destructive agents of mold, mildew and termites. The Foam-Control EPS in our R-Control SIPs is treated with Perform Guard® termite protection. And the entire SIP, when treated with FrameGuard®, prevents mold, mildew and termite damage to its wood components.

Structural Insulated Panel for Building Walls

No other building method can deliver the strength and energy performance of a structural insulated panel for building walls. Its laminated composite of engineered wood skins and foam core delivers durability and an envelope that stops air leaks and heat movement. You can always count on a structural insulated panel for building walls to perform better than any other method of wall construction. And a structural insulated panel for building walls goes up faster and is already sheathed both sides and is insulated, ready for windows, doors, exterior claddings and interior finishes.

Structural Insulated Panel for Building Roofs

When long spans and a clean ceiling line are part of the design, a structural insulated panel for building roofs is the preferred building component. With the use of structural spines, a structural insulated panel for building roofs can clear span up to 24’ depending on the roof loading. Using Roof SIPs can get you closed-in, ready for temporary conditioning, exterior claddings and interior finishing. No other roof construction method is equal to a structural insulated panel for building roofs.

Structural Insulated Panel for Building Floors

When a structure calls for a strong, insulated and air tight design for a floor, a structural insulated panel for building floors can do the task. Structural splines used with a structural insulated panel for building floors can span long distances proving a sturdy, durable and energy efficient floor system. When your design calls for the best structural and energy performing floor, a structural insulated panel for building floors meets your needs and beyond.

With their versatility, strength, cost effectiveness, and energy efficiency, R-Control SIPs are ideal for a wide range of residential and commercial projects. R-Control SIPs open the door to virtually unlimited design possibilities; putting you in control of your building system, not the other way around. Every R-Control SIP is custom made according to your specifications and drawings, so you get exactly what you need for your project. And local support for R-Control SIPs is second to none.
