As the difference between ambient air and the air encapsulated in the EPS foam in a Net-Zero SIP panel become more and more pronounced, the r-value of the foam increases. The practical implication is that the colder it gets, the more insulation value the foam has.  For example, one inch of Type I EPS foam, like what we use in our SIPs, has an R-value of 4.15 at 55 degrees F which increases to 4.8 when the ambient temperature drops to -25 degrees F. This amounts to an approximately 16 percent increase in R-value at -25 in comparison to + 55 degrees F - How convenient...

Energy-Efficient Chalet on Hudson Bay Mountain Built with SIPs

When Jodie and Rob Blackburn decided to build a private chalet on Hudson Bay Mountain, they knew a conventional stick-frame construction was not going to be the most efficient building for their needs. 

“I began to research energy efficiency and affordability and your companies’ product quickly became the front-runner,” says Rob. “We chose Net-Zero Structure’s structural insulated panels (SIPs) for many reasons including ease and speed of erection as well as cost and availability.”
