Premier SIPs made the final cut as finalists for Environmental Design + Construction’s (EDC) fifth annual Reader Choice Awards.  This annual contest gives readers the opportunity to vote for the best of green building products that best combine sustainable attributes with ease of use and installation.  Both products are listed for the top product award in the “Framing, Structural or Insulation Products’ category.  As the official magazine for the LEED professional, EDC provides education for designing, constructing, remodeling, operating and maintaining a sustainable built environment.

R-Tech®:  An effective roof insulation panel helps reduce overall energy consumption, creates improved comfort for the building’s occupants and provides an excellent substrate for a new or retrofit roofing system. R-Tech closed cell panels pair extremely lightweight expanded polystyrene (EPS) with factory-laminated facers for good dimensional stability and compressive strength.  They offer remarkable physical properties, including excellent moisture resistance, long term non-degenerative thermal properties and extreme resilience. Insulfoam’s EPS is also environmentally friendly and 100% recyclable, containing no HCFC’s or formaldehyde and can contribute toward LEED® credit requirements.

Premier SIPs:  Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) are a high-performance engineered wood framing product. SIPS are manufactured with a super-insulating core of rigid expanded polystyrene (EPS) that is structurally laminated and pressure cured between two sheets of oriented strand board (OSB). When using Premier SIPs for a building’s roof, walls and/or floors, the result is a highly efficient structural building system that is extremely strong, predictable, energy efficient and cost effective.
