More and more we are seeing structural insulated panel (SIP) manufacturers shifting away from traditional wooden sheathings such as O.S.B. and plywood in favor of alternative cement based structural sheathings.
There are parts of the world where wood is simply a non-starter… Bugs, pests, rot, mold, mildew, fire, you name it. Developers, contractors and their financiers are looking for a cost effective yet durable and long lasting housing solution that is sustainable and eco-friendly.
Magnesium oxide structural insulated panels have ticks in all the right boxes when it comes to the very worst that nature can throw at them. Hot and wet, cold and damp, hurricanes and earthquakes, it doesn’t matter. Extremegreen MgO takes it all in its stride.
A magnesium oxide SIP comprises a sheet of Extremegreen MgO precision laminated either side of a slab of of expanded polystyrene (EPS). This creates a super thermally insulated wall, roof or floor panel that can be cut into pretty much any shape or size. In addition to a healthy home, why not invest in a SIP home and take advantage of arguably the most energy efficient structures on the planet. Not only that, SIPS are quick and easy to build with. A three bedroom home can be built from start to finish in a little as a month.
