ADVANTAGES OF THE SE-SIP CONSTRUCTION SYSTEM

Current market requirements, lack of skilled workforce, environmental aspects as well as strengthened regulations and standards place architects and contractors in an increasingly difficult situation. SIPEUROPE’s SE-SIP construction system provides solutions for all aspects mentioned above as well as many other advantages for architects, contractors, developers, and building users.

Drafting and Designing Advantages

Design Flexibility

The SE-SIP construction system is designed for individual and atypical shapes of buildings. The panel structure makes assembling of almost any shape possible. The panels arrive to the site cut to size and are ready for immediate installation according to the installation plan.

No Thermal Bridges

The panel structure of the building, much smaller amount of construction lumber, and the use of “SIP Spline” connections significantly reduce the amount of thermal bridges in the construction. Thanks to using a single SE-SIP construction system, the nightmare of architects is taken care of. They no longer have to consider difficult details in the construction and combinations of different materials.

Airtight Building Envelope

One of the most essential factors of buildings to meet strict standards is the airtight building envelope. Buildings using the SE-SIP construction system achieve the highest scores in the performed “blower door” airtightness tests. They are designed for modern ventilation systems to achieve greater housing comfort.

Variability of Use

SIP panels are produced in four basic thicknesses, which ensures wide range of their uses. We can use them for the construction of perimeter walls, interior loadbearing and non-loadbearing partition walls, foundations of buildings and floors, flat and sloping roofs. The SE-SIP construction system can be used as a single building system for the whole building, or we can combine it with another construction system.

Construction and Physical Advantages

Construction Speed

Whether in the form of individual construction made of SE-SIP panels, or prefabricated houses, the construction is many times higher than conventional brick constructions, which need countless wet construction methods. The construction from SE-SIP panels is a dry construction process that can be carried out at any time of year. The speed of construction thus provides a faster return of investment and facilitates the organization of construction works for the construction company.

Thermal Insulation Properties

Despite smaller thickness, panels provide excellent thermal insulation properties. This provides more usable area and reduces heating costs by up to 50% compared to conventional construction systems. The insulating core is stable and does not disrupt even after decades. Buildings made of SE-SIP panels provide thermal resistance of perimeter walls and roof structures R=6,5 m2. K/W and more. Such buildings fall into the category of low-energy or passive buildings. They provide the necessary thermal comfort during the winter season and keep the building cool during the summer.

High Strength

After the construction of the panel structure, the building system behaves like a monolithic shell, which provides up to 5 times greater static parameters than a conventional timber frame construction. The construction built of SE-SIP panels thus provides a robust and solid feeling, which is difficult to distinguish from the traditional construction system.

More Usable Area

Buildings made of SE-SIP panels provide 7-10% more usable area than conventional brick buildings. Users of the building can enjoy a larger and more spacious environment. For development companies that sell m2 of usable area, this percentage increase will generate their profit.

Stable Insulation

The insulating core of the SE-SIP construction system is strong and stable even after decades. It cannot get wet, sag or be poorly installed, as can happen with conventional frame constructions that are demanding on technological processes.

No Mold or Allergens

The airtight construction is ideal for modern ventilation systems that reduce energy costs and increase indoor air quality. The use of heat recovery units thus ensures a constant supply of fresh air to buildings without additional heat loss. Therefore, the air in the building is always fresh and no molds are formed in the buildings, plus allergens are not spread.

Certified Construction System and Guarantee

SIPEUROPE and the SE-SIP constraction system are the holder of the European Technical Assessment ETA 18/0312. The production process is regularly inspected. Our company provides a 50-year certified warranty for the construction system.

Environmental Advantages

CO2 Reduction

The SE-SIP construction system is classified as a wooden structure, so the overall process of manufacturing, construction, and the possibility of recycling materials significantly reduce CO2 production. It is therefore good to know that your construction significantly contributes to reducing greenhouse gases.
