Modern and quick builds with Hemsec’s SIPs

  • 28 Jul 2021

SIPs mean you can build modern, superinsulated buildings and extensions much faster, with fewer materials and workers, explains Hemsec

SIPs provide a building’s structure and insulation combined in one modular panel, so your projects are:

 – Quick to build – a garden room can be up in as little as two weeks
 – Easier to build – fewer workers and materials are needed
 – Durable and low-maintenance
 – Superinsulated up to 0.14 U-value – minimal fuel bills for your customer
 – Bigger inside than a traditional build
 – Eco-friendly – few if any emissions from the finished building


Home-owners happily recommend their SIPs builder

It’s very common for SIPs building owners to become evangelists and recommend their builder SIPs builder, because they gain:

 – Superinsulation (cool in summer, warm in winter – all-round use and very low heating bills)
 – Space utilisation
 – Low maintenance
 – Durability
 – Design flexibility

If you’re considering SIPs, it’s important to use high quality products. Hemsec is one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of insulated panels. Its SIPs have BBA accreditation, and are extensively tested for Structural, Acoustic and Thermal properties, including Fire Resistance.

The company consistently manufactures dimensionally accurate SIPS, ensuring uniformity and reducing any additional manipulation.

As an example, design and build specialists JML SIPs has been partners with Hemsec for 10 years. It has total confidence that when the panels arrive in its processing factory, team members are able to cut the materials to size easily, ready for use with both the company’s garden room kits and bespoke designed buildings.

In 2018, JML supplied and erected the SIPs kit for the RIBA House of the Year and it has won countless other awards before and since, attesting to the quality of the partnership with Hemsec.

Stephen Painter, Hemsec Managing Director, spoke about the company’s commitment to sustainability and the ‘focus on the need to construct low energy homes and buildings’ as a key part of the Net Zero Carbon building agenda.
