Log and Timber Frame SIP Panels

While SIP panels are a practical way to add energy efficiency to a home, log and timber frame SIP panels can complete your project faster and beautifully.

Timber Frame and Specialty Panels

In addition to a standard SIP panel, FischerSIPS also manufactures several specialty panels. Most frequently used by log and timber framers, our specialty panels combine the energy efficiency and practicality of a SIP with the ability to expose one side, typically on the ceiling. Specialty panels include pine or cedar tongue and groove, ‘barn siding,’ or drywall panels.

By manufacturing panels with a pre-finished side, builders are able to construct quicker with the ease of a single product. Log and timber frame SIP panels are each custom manufactured by our team in a factory-controlled setting to your dimensions based on your design plans. Ask your salesman to explore all of the pre-finished options.

Pine Tongue and Groove (T&G) SIP Panels

Available 4×8 up to 8×24

These structural panels have a Pre-finished or unfinished 1×8 V groove Pine Tongue and Groove glued and nailed to the inside OSB skin of the panel. The tongues over hang the panel to allow for connecting to the next panel without a joint showing. There will be a butt joint on the ends of the panels that will need to hidden behind a beam or trim. If you get the pre-stain, once installed, they will not need another coating. 

T-11 SIP Panels

Available only in 4×8

They will have a sheet of 4×8 ‘barn siding’ laminated directly to the EPS foam. They have a lap joint along the long sides for connecting the panels. There will be seam visible along the 4’ side.

Drywall SIP Panels

Available 4×8 up to 8×24

These panels are made by gluing and screwing a layer of ½” Drywall to the interior OSB skin. They are not finished and will thus have to be finished on site. It is best to plan to hide the joints behind your TF or Log structure beams.
