Protect Indoor Air Quality with SIPs

Structural insulated panels (SIPs) can protect a structure's indoor air quality

Murus structural insulated panels (SIPs) are designed to maintain a structure's indoor air quality. Murus foam cores do not contain formaldehyde, CFC's, or HCFC's. Murus SIPs create a tight building envelope that enables the building occupant to maintain control over the indoor environment through the use of mechanical ventilation and filtration. Because a structure that was built with SIPs can be very airtight, many manufacturers, including Murus, require that the structure have a heating and cooling system that includes a mechanical ventilation system.
