Our OSB (Oriented Strand Board) used in our structural rated panels is 7/16’ thick and conforms to APA PRN-610 and DOC PS 2-04, Exposure 1, Rated Sheathing with a span index of 24/16. We buy our OSB in 4’x8’,x10’,12’,14’,16, & 24’ and in 8’x24’ sheet sizes. We manufacture SIP panels in those sizes and custom fabricated lengths.
Our foam used in our structural rated panels is 1.0 pound per cubic foot nominal density expanded polystyrene (EPS) foam. The foam core has a flame spread rating not exceeding 75 and a smoke-developed rating not exceeding 450 when tested in accordance with ASTM E84. Our foam is also UL (Underwriters Laboratory) listed.
Our EPS foam cores on our standard thickness SIP panels are the approximate dimension of 2”x4”, 2”x6”, 2”x8”, 2”x10”, and 2”x12” dimensional lumber. We can also do custom thicknesses upon request. Each 4’ wide section of foam comes with two horizontal electrical chases at outlet and switch heights and one vertical chase allowing for ease of electrical wiring installation. Custom thicknesses and custom wire chase locations are available upon request. Contact the factory.
We can also provide custom foam densities (less and more dense than our structural rated panels) and even recycled content (up to 30%) for those unique applications that require something different. Changes in foam density may impact the structural rating of the panel.
Our use of plant fibers like bamboo and recycled crumb rubber from spent tires is much greener than alternative current choices in the marketplace. Our experienced researchers are constantly working on ways to improve on this technology . Our mission is to make a positive impact on humankind with little impact on mother nature.
Our adhesive is a Type II, Class 2, laminating adhesive as specified in the approved quality control documentation.If you are looking for a scalable and sustainable solution to these needs, call us at (321) 293-0180.
