If you are building a new home, you want to help future proof it by using a proven energy efficient method of construction, that will help save on energy bills in the future.

Building your home using SIPs is a great solution to outstanding energy efficiency!!

There many Advantages of SIPs, built using the Kingspan TEK Building System including:

Fast, Cost Effective & Predictable

  • The panelised nature of the System can enable a fast track building process, which can help to reduce construction time.
  • Follow on trades can start work sooner, as once a Kingspan TEK® Building System kit is erected and wrapped with a breathable membrane (e.g. Kingspan nilvent ®), the shell is weather–tight, and this can help the contractor complete the project more quickly.
  • Much easier to predict project completion times, as the System is relatively simple to erect and requires no wet trades or brick layers.
  • Defects are vastly reduced due to factory controlled manufacturing, precise engineering and the design of the System.
  • Innovation

  • Can provide a more controllable indoor environment than traditional construction methods, such as masonry, due to the System’s potential for superior air–tightness.
  • First SIP building system in the UK and Ireland to receive BBA and NSAI Agrément certification.
  • Used on the UK’s first house to achieve Code for Sustainable Homes – Level 6 (BRE Innovation Centre 2007).
  • Has since been used on several multiple dwelling projects that have achieved Code for Sustainable Homes Level 5 and Level 6.
  • Perfect high performance building fabric solution for Passivhaus design.
  • Environmental Advantages

  • Can be used to create highly energy efficient buildings.
  • Can achieve whole wall and roof u-values of between 0.20 – 0.10Wm2k.
  • Can achieve air leakages rates as good as 0.08 air changes per hour at normal air pressures (approximately 1 m3/hour/m2 at 50Pa).
  • Creates minimal site waste, as kits are designed, cut and palletised in a quality controlled, factory environment.
  • Creates minimal site waste, as kits are designed, cut and
    palletised in a quality controlled, factory environment.
  • All the components for a typical Kingspan TEK® Building System kit, e.g. panels and ancillaries, come from one source, therefore there are fewer deliveries, less transport, congestion, noise and traffic pollution, which reduces a project’s impact on the environment
  • The OSB facing of Kingspan TEK® Building System panels is PEFC Chain of Custody certified at 70%. .
  • Wall and roof elements, constructed using the Kingspan TEK® Building System in a 142 mm panel thickness, correspond to generic elements with 2008 BRE Global Green Guide Summary Ratings of A+ or A.
  • The insulation core of the panels is manufactured with a
    blowing agent that has zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) and low Global Warming Potential (GWP
