Structural insulated panel (SIPS) systems were first developed within a 1930’s research program investigating methods of conserving the U.S. forestry. The system was quickly adopted by the visionary architect Frank Lloyd Wright and later, in the 1950s by Dow Corning.

The SIPS system has a well proven history and having survived earthquakes, tornadoes and extreme weather conditions, is renowned for its strength and energy efficiency.

These advanced insulated wall panels make it possible to quickly erect homes and commercial buildings with minimal expense: And by spreading the structural loads over the entire S.I.P. system, much of the timber or steel framing required for ‘conventional’ construction methods is eliminated.



Superior’s SIPS wall system provides improved structural performance. Panels will not rot or decay, are not susceptible to termite attack and the finished internal and external surfaces are ready for painting or plastering. Their structural integrity is not affected by extremes of moisture or temperature, making them an ideal building material for use in all climates.



In addition to reducing material costs and site labour time, the panel technology is ideal for creating airtight, highly energy-efficient buildings. This is an important advantage considering the ongoing discussions of increasing energy cost.

When combined with the speed of construction, minimal waste and simplicity of construction, the Superior Wall System is rightly regarded as an advanced building method for the 21st Century.
