The Insulspan® Structural Insulated Panel (SIP) System is an industry-leading, ready-to-assemble (RTA) system
The Insulspan® Structural Insulated Panel (SIP) System is an industry-leading, ready-to-assemble (RTA) system. It provides homeowners, builders, architects, and timber framers a competitive edge over traditional stick frame construction. The RTA process reduces construction time and improves efficiency from beginning to end.
IT STARTS WITH DESIGN
Insulspan’s experienced design team produces precise SIP drawings based on your plans using HSB AutoCAD. These detailed drawings include all panel configurations along with ridge and purlin details, deck connections, panel connections, sealant and fastener details, insulated header and lumber details, and joint tape details.

During the design process, we optimize the panel package for your residential or commercial building. This ensures your panel package gives you optimal panel usage as well as speed and ease of construction.
Our detailed construction drawings accompany the SIP package to your job site. The Insulspan Installation Guide is also included.
Using detailed shop drawings created by our design team, panel manufacturing begins with pre-cutting per your specifications and takes place in our controlled environment. Our manufacturing includes all straight, miter, and bevel cuts needed for the eaves and rakes as well as openings for doors, windows, and skylights. As a result, you will not have to cut the panels on the job site (unless the foundation or architectural plans deviate from the original estimated contractual plans).
The expanded polystyrene (EPS) insulation in the wall and roof panels is relieved to receive the 2x lumber components that are included in the Insulspan RTA package. While this is happening, another member of the Insulspan manufacturing team cuts the lumber components, including ripping and beveling the material as required; drills all lumber for wire chases; and assembles the insulated lumber headers. Supplied lumber components include:
- top and bottom plates
- corner and spline connections
- window and door bucking
- all built-up header material consisting of standard or engineered lumber and insulation
Finally, all lumber components that can be installed prior to delivery are, including window and door bucks and connections as well as corner and structural spline connections.
