SIP PANEL EXTENSIONS
SIP PANEL EXTENSIONS
A Structural Insulated Panel (SIP) is made from a sandwich of two layers of stressed skin and one layer of insulation. The stressed skin layers make it exceptionally strong, whilst producing thinner overall wall thicknesses than other forms of construction. With no need for cavity or internal insulation, structural insulated panels can provide a very fast way of constructing very efficient walls with u-values as low as 0.15, without additional insulation.
SIPs are a very flexible product and can be used with any external cladding, be it brick, render, weatherboarding or metal cladding. Equally they can be roofed with slates, tiles or metal roofing. Internally they can be simply finished with plasterboard and a skim coating (with service cavities where needed) meaning that wet trades are kept to a minimum, speeding up build times even further. They are suitable for new builds and home extensions as well as being ideal in-fill panels between other structures like steel or oak frames
SIP PANEL EXTENSIONS
SIP Panel Extensions were first developed in America in the 1930’s and have been widely-used in the UK since the 1980’s. They have a proven track record of performance and testing, and have a C.A.T.G. SIP Mark Scheme. The Building Research Establishment, an independent testing body, have produced an Information Paper (IP 13/04) on structural insulated panels and have conducted testing on SIPs on behalf of the Government and insurers.

PEACE OF MIND
We provide a 10 year guarantee on every SIP panel extension that we install. Through Consumer Protection Association we also provide a 10 year insurance backed guarantee.
ORDERING FROM US
We supply and install SIP Panel extensions throughout Berkshire. All of our engineers are approved to install the Guardian Warm Roof system and Guardian Extension Berkshire is also approved by Guardian to install their specialist panels.
SIP PANEL EXTENSION EFFICIENCY INFORMATION
Our extensions utilise the Kingspan TEK® Building System for the walls, which has environmental sustainability at its core. All of the components for a typical extension, e.g. panels and ancillaries, come from one source. Therefore there are fewer deliveries, less transport congestion, noise and traffic pollution, which reduces a project’s impact on the environment. In addition, a project will create minimal site waste, as kits are designed, cut and palletised in a quality controlled, factory environment.
The insulation layer is not interrupted by repeating stud work, so there is less repeating thermal bridging, yielding better thermal performance. The SIP panels are certified to BES 6001 (Framework Standard for the Responsible Sourcing of Construction Products) as `Very Good’. The insulation core of the panels is manufactured with a blowing agent that has zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) and low Global Warming Potential (GWP).
For roofs we use the Guardian Warm Roof system, which is fully tested and approved to all thermal and structural standards. This high performance insulated roof system comprises of a pre-engineered lightweight frame, two layers of rigid insulation board, internal insulated plasterboard, exterior grade plywood and a vapour membrane. Altogether this creates a thermally efficient living space; keeping the warm air out in the summer and preventing the heat from escaping in the winter thus saving the amount of heat energy required to keep the room at an ambient temperature.
COMPLETE CONSTRUCTION EFFICIENCY
Finished constructions produce a superior U-value of just 0.16 W/m2.K with a total wall thickness of 275.5 mm. To achieve an equivalent U-value using traditional methods of construction the wall would have to be 453 mm thick. Thermographic imagery on completed roofs has demonstrated 100% thermal reliability and continuous insulation, with:
• No cold bridging
• No condensation risk
• No interstitial moisture risk

GUARDIAN™ ROOF KEY INFORMATION
THE GUARDIAN™ ROOF
The lightweight, insulated Guardian™ roof system was designed and developed over a ten year period and with one purpose – to replace the typical glass or polycarbonate roof that was used in the construction of most UK conservatories.
The main focus was on the dynamics and performance, however the overall weight of the replacement roof, which needed to be installed onto the existing conservatory windows, doors and frames was always a big priority. During this period extensive tests were carried out both for compliance and approval to very vigorous structural and thermal standards. The result is not only a brilliant product but a very practical solution, one which has been the biggest home improvement.
