Marley Modular Systems, a new venture from global manufacturer and distributor Aliaxis, has launched into the offsite construction market, offering its Structural Insulated Panel System (SIPS).
This is a composite building panel made from a core of rigid polyisocyanurate foam, sandwiched between two structural skins of oriented strand board (OSB).
Marley SIPs can be supplied in prefabricated wall, floor or roof sections complete with structural openings for doors and windows. The panels are manufactured in a factory and fabricated to exact customer dimensions for each project.
Marley Modular Systems’ SIPs are said to represent the second generation of panelised products, which, unlike open or closed panel alternatives, feature a homogenous build-up with no cold-bridges, minimal timber usage and excellent airtightness, without the addition of membranes.
