Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs)

R-Control® SIPs Structural Insulated Panel (SIPs) are a strong structural system consisting of Foam-Control® Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) insulation laminated to oriented strand board (OSB) forming a structural panel. R-Control® Structural Insulated Panels are used in walls, roof, and floor applications.

R-Control® Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) are custom manufactured to give you control over every aspect of your project from design and timelines, to materials and costs. R-Control® Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) are available in sizes from 4'x8' to 8'x24'.


Structural Insulated Panel (SIPs) Comfort & Design Flexibility


It’s important to design a building that provides style, comfort, safety and durability. R-Control® Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) meet design criteria and are environmentally friendly. R-Control® Structural Insulated Panels have been selected by nationally and internationally recognized organizations to build some of the most energy efficient, healthy, environmentally responsible and disaster safe homes in the world.

Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) can be custom fabricated to virtually any architectural design. Design flexibility and custom manufacturing make Structural Insulated Panels an attractive structural and insulation solution for architects.


Build Faster with Structural Insulated Panel (SIPs)



Building a quality structure at a competitive cost while meeting deadlines is crucial to a project’s success. R-Control® Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) build faster. Labor time savings range from 30-40%. The contractor's crew builds more in less time. SIPs also make inside finish work easier to complete - drywall goes up fast and cabinets are quickly bolted directly into the OSB panel.

In a building blitz contest sponsored by Residential Architectural magazine, architects were asked to propose a high-quality, high R-value home that could be constructed quickly and affordably. To maximize field installation speed and quality, the winning design incorporated SIPs. The entire house, walls and roof, was framed utilizing structural insulated panels.

Energy Efficient & Environmentally Friendly


R-Control® Structural Insulated Panels are 50-70% more energy efficient than conventional stick framing with fiberglass insulation. High R-Values combined with reduced air infiltration make R-Control® SIPs a superior insulation system. The energy efficiency of structural insulated panels reduces heating and cooling costs while maintaining a more comfortable living environment. Projects employing SIPs earn LEED Credits.

SIPs also reduces waste at the jobsite because they are custom manufactured to meet specific project needs. EPS is recyclable and environmentally friendly. ACH Foam Technologies’ EPS contains no CFCs, HCFCs,HFCs, or formaldehyde.
