The Murus Company, Inc. supplies structural insulated panels to the log home and timber framing industries. Murus SIPs can optimize a log structure’s roofing system. Applied over the top of the log rafter, purlin, or truss system, Murus SIPs will provide a clean, integrated interior surface for ease of finishing while providing superior insulation values, performance, and energy efficiency.
Murus SIPs are utilized by a number of log home companies throughout the country as an integral part of their package offerings. Murus SIPs have unique features that make installation over log home structures faster, easier, and more energy efficient than conventional framing methods. A variety of panel skins, panel thicknesses, and lengths ensures the right product for the job. The outstanding energy performance and superior strength that Murus SIPs provide have made them an increasingly popular building material for log home and log hybrid structures.
Murus SIPs are ideal for green building and near- and net-zero projects because of their ability to reduce heating and cooling loads and create a secure building envelope. Using Murus SIPs can contribute to certification under ENERGY STAR®, LEED, and NAHB Green Home Building Guidelines. Murus SIPs are engineered to be thermally stable, maintaining their R-value over time, and can save significantly on heating and cooling energy consumption. With R-values up to R-52 (at 75° F), Murus SIPs can contribute to an energy efficient building envelope to maintain a consistently comfortable living environment in your log home.
Murus Polyurethane foam provides the highest R-value per inch of thickness of any SIP foam core available. The molded tongue and groove edge profile assures quick, proper alignment of panel-to-panel joints. Once installed and sealed with spray foam, the result is a continuous uniformity of insulation that is lacking in spline connection systems. Murus Polyurethane SIP foam is safe to humans and the environment and does not contain formaldehyde, CFC’s, or HCFC’s, or other ozone-depleting compounds. Murus Polyurethane SIPs have a lifetime warranty against delamination. Contact Murus for complete warranty details.
Murus EPS and Neopor® EPS SIPs are a high quality, competitively priced alternative to conventional construction, offering dependable performance and superior R-values. Murus EPS and Neopor graphite-enhanced EPS foams contain no formaldehyde, CFC’s, HCFC’s, or HFC’s. Typical panel-to-panel connection is achieved using plywood or OSB splines. Panels are manufactured with core dimensions that allow dimensional lumber to be incorporated for additional load-bearing support. Murus EPS and Neopor graphite-enhanced EPS SIPs are backed by a 10-year manufacturer’s warranty against defects in materials and workmanship.
Superior energy performance, a healthy and comfortable living environment, design flexibility, fast installation – these are just some of the rewards for including Murus SIPs in your log home plan. We are happy to work with any log home company to provide a Murus SIP roof system that will compliment your home’s beauty and contribute to its superior energy performance and comfort.
