Utilizes Conventional Framing Practices
RAYCORE SIP roof panels and SIP wall panels combine three labor tasks into one smart panel system. This system utilizes conventional proven building materials: premium Douglas fir members, state-of-the-art foamed in place rigid polyurethane foam, and foil radiant barrier. This brilliant panel coupled with jobsite materials will meet all local standard building codes.
For code purposes, RAYCORE Structural Insulated Panels - SIPs, with integrated studs, are considered conventional framing and fall under the provisions of the IRC Section 6, when applicable to wall framing. (Section R610 does not apply, as RAYCORE SIP’s are not a “Sandwich panel” style SIP as defined by the IRC and regulated by that section.) No special code, No special ICC reports required.

RAYCORE Polyurethane Foam
This state-of-the-art custom blend of high density closed cell polyurethane foam not only produces some of the highest R-values available, it has a low perm rate and will not retain or allow moisture to pass through it, so no problems with condensation or mold and mildew. It also ensures an airtight structure. Further, it produces all of these benefits while maintaining a Class 1 Fire Rated standard. Class 1 means that the foam will not sustain a flame. Far, far superior to polystyrene foam, RAYCORE’s quality control standards will not settle for less.
Foil Radiant Air Barrier
This paper thin high-tech foil radiant barrier, similar to an emergency heat blanket, helps to reflect the outside temperatures out and the inside temperatures in on any structure.
Only RAYCORE combines these advanced technologies into one energy saving SIP panel.
