SIP Kits - TEK Kingspan Building System
The SIP Kits -Kingspan TEK Building System is based on structural insulated panels (SIPs). These panels comprise 112mm of high performance rigid urethane insulation sandwiched between two sheets of Oriented Stand Board (OSB). The panels are 1.22m wide and up to 7.50m long and are very strong.
The panels are joined together using a unique sealed jointing system that minimises the amount of air that can pass through the joints, making your home very airtight. In addition, the design of the panel joints means a more continuous layer of insulation in your walls and roof. In a property constructed using the SIP Kits -Kingspan TEK Building System, as little as 4% of the walls and 1% of the roof will be uninsulated. The overall result is a home that is very energy efficient, making it very cheap to run from the point of view of heating costs.
However, your airtight home will need ventilation. We recommend using a mechanical ventilation with heat recovery (MVHR) system. In short, these systems extract the moist waste air from your home and replace it with fresh air from outside. Integral to these systems is a heat exchanger, which will extract the heat from the outgoing waste air to heat the incoming air.
