Secure-Lock Steel-Skinned Structural Insulated Panel System
Secure-Lock Structural Insulated Panel System (SIP) units are high-performance building panels for floors, walls and roofs in residential and commercial buildings. Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) use expanded polystyrene (EPS) foam insulation sandwiched between two structural skins of steel (used in the patented Secure-Lock panel). The result is a building envelope system that is hurricane, seismic, fire, pest and mold-resistant, as well as energy-efficient, fast to erect, and cost-effective.
Additional information and specifications:
With a layer of expanded polystyrene or EPS foam between two steel skins, our structural insulated panel system provides you with the best home/building insulation.
These secure lock steel SIPs are 15x more airtight than conventional wood insulation panels. This results in a naturally maintained ambient temperature within the interior space, meaning your home remains cool on warm days and vice versa.
Reduced utility bills
A SIP steel structure system keeps your home well insulated, and this eventually reduces the usage of HVAC systems. As such, your monthly energy bills are also reduced significantly.
Estimates suggest that structural insulated panels, or SIPs, can save you up to 60 percent on utility bills.
For a typical household, this can result in savings of up to $30,000 over a period of 10 to 30 years.
Our steel-skinned structural insulated panels are made using monocoque engineering, a technique used in aircraft manufacturing. This makes the secure lock steel SIPs highly impact-resistant.
Also, these panels meet all Florida hurricane code requirements.
So, by using these steel-insulated panels, you can create a safety shield around your home and prepare it to withstand the coming hurricane seasons.
Low maintenance structures
Compared to traditional home buildings with wooden walls and roofs, homes built with steel structural insulated panels need little to zero maintenance.
You see, while wood is prone to pest and mold infestation, that’s not the case with steel. Further, the steel itself doesn’t need any maintenance and can last way longer than wood.
That means you need not look back on maintenance once you’ve installed a structural insulated panel system.
Healthier indoor spaces
The homes and buildings built using structural insulated panel systems offer healthier indoors compared to traditional insulants.
That’s because, unlike other insulating and building materials, steel structural insulated panels don’t provide a thriving space for mold and mildew.
Steel SIP panels are sustainable building materials. These are mostly made with recycled stainless steel and can be further recycled at the end of their lifespan.
Not to mention, they significantly reduce the requirement of timber during construction, thus helping protect the ecology.
Unlike regular home construction, which can take months to complete, SIP panels can build your home within weeks (or days).
Secure lock steel security panels are prefabricated units built entirely in the factory. So assembling these panels is the only thing one needs to do at the construction site.
Also, these panels are lightweight, which means you can also DIY your home. In fact, studies show that up to 55 percent of construction sites with SIP panels don’t need any labor at all.
You can follow our installation guide to complete the installation of your structural insulated panel system.
There are endless SIP designs and colors you can choose from for your construction project.
One-Minute Video Overview of the Secure-Lock SIP System
Secure Lock SIPs can be used to build up to 3 stories with no additional steel structure, as each steel to steel joint creates the effect of a steel column in the wall.
