Neopor vs Plain White

Neopor achieves another 30% more insulation, compared to the plain white polystyrene.

Words by SIPS Direct

When we look at insulation values, it’s important to consider the total R value of the whole element (for example: wall/floor/roof) rather than just the insulation itself.

A typical framed wall is 11% timber, which reduces the total value. The air leakage of a timber frame hasn’t been considered either, when the frame is assembled, which can be quite significant. SIPS walls leak 20 times less air.

The R-value of our panels are:

  • 110 mm panel R3.52
  • 160 mm panel R5.13
  • 210 mm panel R6.72
  • 310 mm panel R9.93
