PFF, SIPS are the Best Choice
STRUCTURAL INSULATED PANELS
SASS’s SIPs are composed of composite-building materials that consist of a rigid foam core (expanded polystyrene) sandwiched between 26-gauge galvalume steel. PFF panels have been ASTM tested and UL fire-tested and are certified by the Florida Product Approval Commission, FL #13379 and FL #13381. PFF’s high-quality manufacturing process and panel composition makes our panels a superior product, as noted by obtaining Florida’s Product Approval.
SIP-built structures are better than traditional construction because they are:
- · Structurally stronger than conventional stick-framed housing construction
- · Erected quickly
- · More energy efficient
The steel exterior layers combined with the rigid foam core is much stronger and replaces the framing, sheathing, insulation and vapor barrier associated with standard-frame built homes. SASS’s SIPs replace all of these standard housing components and, in most cases, our SIPs are structurally self-sufficient. SIPs can span longer distances, therefore reducing the amount of supports that may be needed in conventional housing design.
There is a great demand for worldwide housing needs, whether the needs are driven by natural disasters, poverty-stricken countries requiring assistance or the global initiative to become more eco-friendly, known as “green building.” Our structural insulated panels (SIPs) offer an alternative solution to a global problem. PFF‘s “Little Haiti House” has earned international recognition. This small modular home can be constructed in less than 2 hours.
SLIP-JOINT PANEL SYSTEM OF THE SIP
The Slip-Joint Panel System is recognized as one of the most effective panel joining systems in the industry. Panels slip into place every time, making installation easy. The slip-joint panel system forms the edges of both surface skins which are bonded to the Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) core under pressure, using a two-part thermo-setting adhesive.
