Yes. When evaluating the insulation performance of a wall system, several factors should be considered. The most common is the “R-value.” R-value is the measurement of the ability of different materials to resist conductive heat transfer (movement of heat through solid material). The higher the R-value of an insulating material, the better it is able to resist heat loss or gain. Over time batts collapse and their R value decreases.
Yes very much so, as energy cost increase so the importance and value of a well-insulated home will have a higher value. In NSW each additional star rating is valued at between $10,000-15,000 on the home resale value.
Yes, fire rating is the same as standard fibre cement sheeting and the polystyrene has a flame retardant built in and will not support combustion on its own, it has to be supported by the continuous presence of flame. Panels are also fitted with secondary protection Termite bates and Termites don’t eat fibre cement board.
Sipsbuild panels can be used in residential and commercial building and are fully compliant to Australian standards.
