When you research Energy Efficient Homes Australia, you will see that some of the most advanced systems are now being designed and built using a Structural Insulated Panel Building System ( Sips). These homes are pre-fabricated under  controlled factory conditions then Flat Packed on pallets for easy transportation Australia wide.

However, there are many different styles of panel building systems out there so it is important to determine what an energy-efficient home means to you, and research them well before deciding if they meet your new home requirements.

 Many years of research and development have gone into Panelock’s Energy Efficient Homes Australia, not just into the fabrication of the home packs, but also into the simplicity, ease and speed of the construction process.

 Each panel consists of a Bamboo Fibre Cement board on each side of a solid core EPS foam and a steel surround channel.

 Where panels meet they are joined and screwed into a steel male adapter, so all fixings are structurally screwed through steel into steel providing enormous strength.

Our panels are standard for 2.7m or 3m ceilings and available in standard widths of 1100mm, 900mm, 600mm & 300mm. This range of widths allow us to use full-length panels on each side of any openings such as windows and doorways.

 The panels are strong but light-weight and easily carried by 2 people and can be erected without utilizing a crane, by a small work team utilizing stepladders and battery-powered screwdrivers.

1Increased energy effectiveness.

Our SIP home has an airtight envelope and can utilize a smaller air conditioner system, saving energy and money. Most of our homes reach a Nathers energy star rating of between 7 to 9 stars.

2. Improved internal air quality.

Reduced air leakage increases the control over the indoor environment, which leads to a healthier internal living conditions.

3. Durability

 Panelock Energy-Efficient Homes Australia are engineer designed to a base standard of a Cat 2 Cyclonic this SIP system is proven to be more powerful than traditional stick-built systems, supplying sturdiness and resistance to winds and seismic forces. 

4. Labour cost savings.

Precut SIP wall panels are so much faster to erect with no onsite fabrication required and only 3 stages to a complete wall stand, conserving labour.

5. Waste decrease.

The construction of a SIP home produces much less waste than a conventional home, which is good for the environment and your wallet.

6. Robust and Durable internal and external Cladding.

Our Bamboo Fibre Cement ( BFC) wall cladding provides a smooth internal finish that is far more robust and resistant to damage than plasterboard and the same cladding on the external is non-combustible and perfect for a modern rendered finish.The same cladding is insect resistant, water resistant and mould resistant.

7.  Ease of fitting services.

All panels have cavities in the foam from top to bottom for making it easy for your Electrician to run heavy duty cabling to fit power points and switches almost anywhere throughout the home.

 Plumbing fitout is equally easy with steel channel cavities prefitted for shower fittings, where a 300mm face BFC board comes out and the flexible piping and taps are screwed to the steel channel and the face board refitted.

 8.Upvc Double Glazed energy efficient Windows & Glass Sliding Doors.

These are quoted as standard for cold climate areas and Aluminiun Framed Low E energy efficient glass windows and doors for warmer climate areas.

Below you will see some plans  and examples of some of our standard homes but we also specialise in building to your custom plans.
