Marley Modular Systems, a new venture from leading global manufacturer and distributor Aliaxis, has made its presence in the offsite construction market felt, offering its advanced Structural Insulated Panel System (SIPS).
Aliaxis, well known for plastic fluid handling systems used in residential and commercial construction, launched the SIPs solution at this year’s Ecobuild show.
This is a high performance, composite building panel made from a core of rigid polyisocyanurate foam, sandwiched between two structural skins of Oriented Strand Board.
The result is an extremely strong, lightweight, energy efficient and cost effective building system.
Samantha Park, Marketing Manager at Aliaxis said: “We know how important it is to be constantly moving and expanding, so with the increasing trend towards offsite construction methods, we are delighted to launch Marley Modular Systems’ SIPs panels.
“The response we got when we launched the product at Ecobuild was phenomenal, proving that there is a real thirst in the market for this sort of product.”
Perfect for residential, commercial, public and industrial projects, Marley SIPs are designed to meet the growing demand for advanced offsite solutions, encompassing multiple technical and environmental benefits.
Marley SIPs can be supplied in prefabricated wall, floor or roof sections complete with structural openings for doors and windows.
The panels are manufactured in a state of the art factory and fabricated to exact customer dimensions for each individual project.
The market for rapid build, highly energy efficient and dependable systems has been increasing by 25% each year, driven by the shortage of affordable housing, schools, care homes and other facilities.
Marley Modular Systems’ SIPs represent the second generation of panelised products, which, unlike open or closed panel alternatives, feature a homogenous build-up with no cold-bridges, minimal timber usage and excellent airtightness, without the addition of membranes.
The Marley Modular Systems SIPs can be supplied as standard panels or panelised walls, suitable for volumetric construction, ready for on-site assembly. The SIPs feature outer faces of conditioned OSB, which is produced from sustainably sourced, small diameter farmed wood, and by a manufacturing process free from harmful agents. And at end of life, some 65% of the system will remain recoverable for reuse.
Although the capital cost of Marley Modular Systems SIPs will differ depending on client specification, the completed cost of the project can be up to 30% cheaper than traditional buildings; achieved through the benefits of specifying a factory produced system, which can be delivered to site, just in time, for speedy installation, involving particularly no waste, with zero defects.
