ADVANTAGES & BENEFITS Energy Efficiency Due to their components and the homogeneous material layers, SIPs have a high R-Value that gives you an excellent thermal performance, therefore lower monthly energy bills. As an example, for a typical SIP panel 12 cm thickness, R-Value = 4,55 m2 K / W.Environmental Sustainability ·         SIP technology sustains the earth’s natural resources, due to its GREEN, RECYCLABLE components:
