Suitable for steel, concrete and glulam timber frame structures, i-SIP infill panels can be used to clad an entire building or set inside apertures, with the external cladding and rain screen finishes fitted directly to the panel. Manufactured in large format, up to 6 x 2.7m, the new i-SIP infill panels offer many benefits over traditional infill methods, including;
To support the launch of its i-SIP infill panel, Innovaré has produced a guide to provide architects and contractors with initial design and installation advice. To download your copy of Innovaré’s ‘Introduction to i-SIP infill panel’ visit www.innovaresystems.co.uk/sips-infill.
Innovaré will provide its full design, engineer, manufacture, supply and fix service for the i-SIP infill system, offering a single supply chain for the customer. Each scheme is independently engineered in accordance with the project requirements and site conditions.
The new i-SIP infill panel has already been used in two healthcare schemes. Innovaré provided a thermally efficient infill solution for the expansion of Lister Hospital in Hertfordshire, installing its i-SIP panel as part of the concrete frame structure. A new neo-natal unit at Stepping Hill Hospital in Stockport also used i-SIP infill for its speed of installation benefits to minimise disruption on-site.
Andrew Orriss, Managing Director at Innovaré Systems believes that i-SIP structural insulated panels are ideally suited to large-scale infill projects. “We can provide a unique approach to the industry with our single supply chain and proven i-SIP product. The thermal performance and speed of installation benefits of SIPs offer clear benefits over traditional blockwork or light gauge steel, helping to reduce the overall build programme. There is an opportunity for architects and contractors to re-think current infill methods and utilise a modern and energy efficient alternative.”
