R-Control SIPs – The Ideal Building Material.
The first time you see R-Control SIPs on a job site, it’s natural to wonder how they could possibly work better than stick framing. But R-Control SIPs do work better—proven in over 30 years of use—because they offer architects, designers and builders control over their projects, without compromise.
R-Control SIPs (structural insulated panels) are engineered and custom manufactured to give you control over every aspect of your project: from design and timelines, to materials and costs, and—ultimately—the quality of the finished project. The advantages of using R-Control SIPs include:
- Unlimited design possibilties for any type of structure
- Superior strength: wind, snow and earthquake resistant
- State-of-the-art energy efficiency and insulation
- Easy to use, fast, and efficient; up to 50% faster than stick framing
- Lower labor costs
- Reduces waste and theft at job site
- Eliminates surprises on the job site
- Comes standard with Perform Guard® termite protection
- Warranted system
Even rising energy costs are no match for R-Control SIPs.
R-Control SIPs provide superior insulation for exterior walls, floors and roofs/ceilings. The solid construction system of R-Control SIPs blocks wind and moisture, providing optimum comfort for temperature, noise and dust control. Heating, ventilating and air conditioning systems can be downsized with R-Control SIPs, creating significant energy savings.
R-Control SIPs are a strong structural system consisting of Foam-Control® insulation laminated between sheets of structural sheathing. This simple sandwich forms an amazingly strong structural panel for building walls, roofs and floors.
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. And every R-Control SIP is custom made according to your specifications and drawings, so you get exactly what you need for your project.
Proven to meet, or exceed, building codes.
R-Control SIPs have been extensively tested by nationally recognized laboratories. R-Control SIPs have been proven to meet or exceed all structural and fire code regulations, greatly reducing your liability exposure. For 30 years, R-Control SIPs have shown they’re the strongest, most reliable, and effective SIPs available anywhere.
R-Control SIPs are heavyweights against the destructive agents of mold, mildew and termites. The Foam-Control 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.
