Standard structural insulated panels (SIPs) are conventionally used among tiny house communities to offer robust insulation in a modular home. One of the new inventions reinforces the compression strength in electrical and plumbing systems. Below post explains where these panels are used and how.
Builders Use Thick Panels on A Modular Home
In a community, individual homeowners use one-side walls with thick panels. Homebuilders use structural insulated panels and reinforced structured panels for constructing modules. The modules that are built from these panels are lightweight, consume less space and offer stronger walls to a modular home.
Reinforced Panels Eases Module Transportation
Insulated modular home has layers of foam put between walls. The panel thickness may vary depending on the type of panel used by the builders. The Reinforced SIPs are easier to transport and assemble in remote locations.
One Inch Panels Provide Support to Roofs
Patented RSIPs are rated to withstand forces of 660+ PSI which is actually stronger than steel. One inch panels could be used as beams on a roof to offer strength to the tiny home interior. A panel so thin is advantageous for the tiny house owners looking to save interior space. Strips of wood or steel are used to make large modules, which are preferred among posh communities.
Using the RSIP Insulation in Floor Plans
High-end modular home manufacturers use RSIP insulated panels on the floor. They also offer floor plans that combine strength and customization or each individually. Homeowners could combine strong panels together or opt for a customized tiny home. Some RSIP panels are offered in kits for ease of final assembly. Kit panels are a modern trend in tiny prefab housing.
Insulation as a Means for Compression and Wire Management
RSIP panels are used to offer compression strength to electrical wires. Modular home manufacturers think outside the box to come up with efficient ways to channel pipes and conduits under the floor. With RSIP the panels get reinforced and will require only little hardware. There are more panel options that encourage builders to come up with reinforced solutions in electrical and plumbing systems.
