Agricultural Buildings using SIPS
Agricultural Buildings with SIPS
Agricultural Buildings using manufactured structural insulated panels (SIPs) for floor, wall, and roof applications in all types of agricultural buildings. SIPS panels are made of a solid core of expanded polystyrene (EPS) foam laminated between two sheets of sheathing. Sheathing type depends upon the building application. Generally, glassboard/oriented strand board (OSB) is used as the interior sheathing and OSB is used as the exterior sheathing in livestock and poultry confinement buildings. We use a standard 2x stud as a tongue and groove panel connecting member for ag panels. Our EPS is 4.2 R's per inch at 40 degrees Fahrenheit. Enercept manufactures blank panels or custom designed panels. Window, vent, and door openings are cut and framed with dimensional lumber installed at the factory, saving the builder time and reducing job site waste. The durability and ease of construction of SIPS makes them the building material of choice for the agricultural market.
We now offer clear span widths up to 120' with SIPS and Ultra Span laminated beams.
Building small barns, shops and storage buildings is made easy with SIPS. You'll be pleasantly surprised by the speed and ease of construction. Less time building will give you more time to enjoy your new shop or hobby center. Our solid core insulation will keep you comfortable and save you money all year long. We promise that you'll get the same great quality, features and commitment no matter what size your project is.
The Fight Against Moisture
We understand that moisture control is a main concern in livestock and poultry confinement buildings due to the high humidity within the enclosure. The natural rigidity and density of expanded polystyrene (foam) gives it a much greater ability to resist moisture than fiberglass insulation. Fiberglass insulation acts like a sponge absorbing moisture. The weight of the wet insulation pulls it down to the bottom of the stud cavity leaving large un-insulated gaps in the wall. As little as 1% moisture content reduces fiberglass's R-value by 50%. The wet fiberglass compounds the problem by rotting the surrounding sheathing and studs resulting in declining structural integrity. With SIPS, you can take care of your hogs while your barn takes care of itself.
