Precision Panel laminates Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) to fit your architectural plans.
All SIPs are manufactured (laminated) under a strict quality control program that is monitored by RADCO, Inc. All panels will be pre-cut to size according to detailed shop / assembly drawings generated from your architectural drawings.
Electrical wire chases are pre-cut into the foam core prior to the laminating process. Typical wire chases are 1.5" in diameter and are placed at 12" and 48" up from the floor horizontally around the walls and vertically every 4’. However, custom wire chases can be placed anywhere in your wall or roof panel package. Wire chases can also be added for alarm systems, cable TV, etc.
Rough openings for doors and windows are pre-cut and this includes removing the foam around the doors, leaving room for the dimensional lumber to be installed.
Bottom and Top Plate foam will be cut out along bottom and top of each panel so panel is ready to fit directly over the bottom and top plates.
All foam will be cut out on edges of panel to accept predetermined spline. In addition, foam will be cut out on center gable end panels to allow for assembly around the posts supporting your ridge beam (when applicable).
Panels are numbered according to the shop drawings to allow for easy identification and faster installation. Interior finishes can also be added to the panels at the factory (such as tongue and groove pine or cedar). All of this adds up to accelerated on-site construction schedules!
We can also calculate the dimensional lumber required to assemble all the panels. The dimensional lumber can easily be supplied and installed (wherever possible) by Precision Panel Structures and shipped with your Precision Panels. In addition, we can spend time at the job site with you to ensure that the project gets started smoothly and / or completely erect the panel portion of your structure with our personnel and boom truck (limited installation area, contact Precision Panel for details).
