What Is A Structural Insulated Panel?
Structural Insulated Panel? Otherwise known as SIPs, Structural Insulated Panels are a prefabricated composite building system that consists of a high R-value insulation panel with a structural element that is used for framing residential and light commercial buildings. The first structural insulated panel was developed in the 1930’s, consisting of a cardboard core with plywood applied to either side. Stressed-skin panels, now more commonly know as sandwich panels came of age in the 1950’s with the creation of the first foam-filled panel. Most structural insulated panels on the market today are constructed of a polystyrene foam core with oriented strand board skins glued to the foam core.
A Different Kind of Structural Insulated Panel
In the 80’s Harry Raymond saw a better way to build without all the problems associated with sandwich panel SIPs panels. Take a look at the better structural insulated panel…
RAY-CORE is different!: Would you trust glue to hold up your home? Homes built with traditional sandwich panels do just that. RAYCORE SIPs are different. They have taken the tried and true methods of conventional stick framed construction, using the best quality doug fir studs, adding the high performance of polyurethane foam insulation, and wrapping it all in a foil radiant barrier to produce a superiorly strong, highly insulating and unquestionably dependable structural insulated panel that will last the lifetime of your home.
