MgO SIPs combine two important new technologies:

Structural insulated panels (SIPs) are not new to the construction industry but they are not yet common practice. SIPs are factory constructed wall systems that are delivered to a construction site and erected on location. They replace the traditional process of framing, insulating, exterior cladding and dry-walling on site. A number of contractors use this building technology today, however they typically utilize traditional materials such as OSB board, lumber, fiberglass insulation and gypsum wallboard.
Magnesium oxide (MgO) boards replace both the OSB and gypsum wallboard as the skins of the SIP, while the centre of the SIP is filled with EPS (expanded polystyrene) styro-foam instead of fiberglass.

The result is a panel with superior characteristics including:

  • Fire Resistance
