MAGNESIUM OXIDE SIP PANELS

What are Magnesium Oxide SIP Panels

Structural Insulated Panels (SIPS) are the core of our advanced building system. The outer structure is Class A Grade Magnesium Oxide (MgO) board, which is highly water resistant, fireproof and extremely strong. The high-performance thermal core comprises either premium carbon treated expanded polystyrene EPS foam insulation. Combined these materials create a very strong construction panel that is easy to assemble, air tight and rapid to deploy, typically taking days to erect the shell of the building.

We also supply a Hybrid panel with  an overclad MgO outer face.

 

Manufactured in the UK to exacting standards

Manufactured in the UK to CAT G ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001:2004 standards for design, manufacture, delivery and erection of buildings. Our build system is one of the highest certificated products in the UK which will allow third party warranties and guarantees including BOPAS, NHBC and LABC.

 

Magnesium Oxide is fireproof (2 hours for our 12mm board, that's each face) and highly water resistant, which means that this is an all weather build system. Combine this with our integrated slab, windows and ventilation systems to form a highly efficient thermal envelope.

 

We can also offer a hybrid panel with overclad MgO outer face.

Outstanding Thermal Performance

Our panels are available in a range of panel thickness which alone achieves U-values of up to 0.12 W/m2K. When used within a thermal building envelope this will allow architects and designers to easily achieve performance up to Passivhaus standard.

 

SIP panel build system benefits:

Rapid deployment and build

Little on-site waste.

Outstanding thermal properties

Excellent acoustic performance

Prevents water infiltration

Recyclable, resistant to rot and vermin

OSB SIP PANELS

What are OSB SIP Panels

Our 144mm panel comprises of two layers of Oriented Strand Board (OSB), either side of 122mm of premium carbon treated expanded polystyrene (EPS).

 

The nature of the stressed skin panel makes it exceptionally strong, whilst largely comprising of insulation, meaning you can achieve high levels of insulation in thinner wall thicknesses than other forms of construction. With no need for cavity or internal insulation, structural insulated panels can provide a very fast way of constructing very efficient walls with u-values as low as 0.14 (without additional insulation) using standard panels.

A cost effective alternative to MgO

OSB SIP panels have been used in the UK for decades and are a cost effective building system. OSB panels will require further treatments to ensure fire and waterproofing, this usually means the application of membranes and tapes which are all supplied and delivered to site. (along with any other fixings).

 

Manufactured in the UK to CAT G ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001:2004 standards for design, manufacture, delivery and erection of buildings. Our build system is one of the highest certificated products in the UK which will allow third party warranties and guarantees including BOPAS, NHBC and LABC

Outstanding Thermal Performance

OSB panels are available in a range of panel thickness which alone achieve u-values of up to 0.14 W/m2K. When used within a thermal building envelope this will allow architects and designers to easily achieve performance up to Passivhaus standard.

 

Our OSB SIP panels are manufactured in the UK in a highly controlled factory environment, working to ISO 9001 standards, to produce one of the most advanced performance build systems available today.

 
 

 WINDOWS & DOORS

High quality, high performance units

Viking Window is now an Estonian window/door manufacturer; our main products are outward opening, Nordic design, energy efficient and weather proof timber and aluclad windows.

We manufacture a wide range of custom designs available for profile and panel door leaves.

Our product range include Scandinavian style energy efficient and traditional doors and German style inward opening doors with triple or double glazing. Doors come equipped with threshold and multi point locking hardware (including cylinder). Aluclad units are available in any RAL colour.

Viking Window is the first to introduce outward opening, Nordic design Passive Window, certified by Passive House Institute in Germany.

Timber windows and doors to Passivhaus

Viking windows offer a range of timber and aluclad windows, doors, sliding doors, bi-folding doors up to Passivhaus standard.

 

The SW14 Passive Windows with 50 mm 3-glazing unit or insulated panel it's possible to achieve overall U-value Uw = 0.7 W/m2K.

Viking Window AS was established in 1996 as a joint venture with a Danish window manufacturer Rationel Vinduer.

Since the beginning company's activities have been focused on core values which are quality, bespoke products, accuracy and continuous improvement. In product quality we line according Vindus Industrien (Denmark) Technical Requirements which is considered the best practice in window industry.

High quality, high performance windows and doors in timber with Aluclad options. Available in a range of double and triple glazed profiles and a fully certified Passivhaus model. Any RAL colour finish.

 

 

MECHANICAL VENTILATION 

AND HEAT RECOVERY

All of our buildings will be highly insulated, with exceptional  levels of airtightness, allowing performance up to Passivhaus standard.

Effective management of ventilation and heat within this performance envelope is achieved through installation of a quality mechanical ventilation and heat recovery system (MVHR).

Our stand-alone system is designed to fully integrate with each building, without the need for a centralised unit and difficult to install ducting.

Why decentralised systems are better

Our SIP panels help to develop a whole house thermal envelope, which is very airtight. Ventilation and heat control is achieved through an MVHR system.

 

Centralised systems can be difficult to integrate, within the building because of complex ducting design.

 

 Also once installed most ducting cannot be cleaned, leading to air pollution problems in years to come.

 

Our simple decentralised system does not require complex ducting installation. Our system saves costs in fitting and maintenance, running costs are very low and the units are extremely quiet. The system can be controlled by Bluetooth units.

Heat Recovery Systems

 

Efficient energy-saving supply and exhaust single-room ventilation in flats, houses, cottages, social and commercial premises.

 

Reducing heat losses caused by ventilation with highly efficient heat recovery units. Humidity balance and regulated air exchange create individually controlled microclimates. Coordinated networks based on several integrated single-room ventilation units with central control using wifi on Android or Mac OS.

ULTRA LOW ENERGY HEATING

Ultra low energy heating systems

Nexgen is a new, unique radiant heating technology that provides extremely efficient low cost, high-energy, warming a room using radiant far Infrared rather than conventional gas, oil, LPG radiators 

or electric heaters.

Infrared radiant heating systems work by emitting long wave Infrared Rays better known as FAR Infrared or Radiant Heat.

 

Radiant Heat is a completely safe invisible form of energy that only heats the surfaces of solid objects, walls, ceilings, floors and people. This is achieved by a conversion process and means that no energy is wasted by heating any of the surrounding air in the same way as conventional radiators, storage heaters or underfloor heaters.

 

Once a solid object heats up it radiates heat back into the surrounding air effectively turning your whole room and all objects and surfaces within it into a giant radiator. We benefit from this in several ways, we feel the effects of this type of heat almost immediately, no waiting for rooms to heat up.

Simple installation and 24 volt power consumption

Nexgen heating foils can be installed by any competent trades, painters, decorators,

drywall installers, plasterers, stucco masons, etc. No specialised electrical training is required as the heating system could simply be plugged in to an existing 220v electrical outlet or can be wired into a mains system (240v or 24v) by a competent electrician. 

 

If the system is connected to the 240v mains then a transformer will supply the 24-volt current to the panels. The low-tension current ensures risk-free installation and operation, while allowing you to hang paintings and other objects on the walls or ceilings.
