Why Choose Murus for your Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs)?

Find out why you should use Murus structural insulated panels

Murus understands that not all structural insulated panels (SIPs) are created equal. Not all companies enjoy the Murus reputation for quality, innovation, and service. More and more architects, engineers, builders, and homeowners are turning to Murus SIPs—the most technologically advanced building system available. Here's why:

Faster Construction, Lower Labor Costs

Murus Structural Insulated Panels use construction methods that offer critical advantages over traditional stick-frame construction. The insulated panel system allows for shorter timeframes, quicker enclosure, and significantly reduced labor costs.

Murus Polyurethane Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) offer a patented cam-lock connection system—a key design innovation that can save up to 30% on installation time compared with other SIP systems.

Tighter Building Envelope

Due to the solid core insulated panel construction, Murus SIPs result in a high performance, tightly sealed building envelope—three to five times tighter than typical enclosure systems.

This is important because, a tighter building envelope improves energy efficiency and provides a more comfortable living environment by reducing drafts, dust, pollen, and noise.

Superior Insulating Value

Murus structural insulated panels (SIPs) create a continuous, whole-wall system that prevents energy-sapping thermal breaks found in traditional framing. Murus SIPs are so highly energy efficient that smaller, less expensive heating and cooling equipment may be used for further savings. Structural Insulated Panels are available with many different r-values.

Fire Resistance

All three Murus foam core types have a Class I fire rating—the best available for combustible materials. Because the foam core of a Murus SIP is solid, there are no cavities or voids in the walls or roof to support a "chimney effect" that can occur during a fire in open-cavity construction.

Environmentally Responsible

Murus remains committed to developing sustainable products that support green building. An airtight structural insulated panel building will use less energy to heat and cool, allow for better control over indoor environmental conditions, and reduce jobsite construction waste.

Murus Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) contribute to points in LEED-NC, LEED for Homes, and NAHB's Model Green Home Guidelines.
