BEAUTY, “BRANES” AND BRAWN: INTEGROOVE®
EAGLE PANEL SYSTEMS IS “CEILING THE ENERGY ENVELOPE®”
Well-insulated Roofs are formidable backdrops for Cathedral Ceilings. EAGLE PANEL SYSTEMS Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) conveniently combine the two; Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) Insulation sandwiched between Oriented Strand Board (OSB) Skins. EAGLE PANEL SYSTEMS “Exclusive” Integrated Structural Insulated Panels (ISIPs®) provide dimensional lumber within the SIPs. They are even stronger and will span farther than basic SIPs. The ISIP® with EPS Insulation and OSB membranes along with the added strength of Rafter(s) inside, alone, offers the strongest SIP available. Besides the ISIP®s Strength, Energy-Efficiency and inherent Cathedral Ceilings, EAGLE PANEL SYSTEMS has combined the ISIP® with Tongue & Groove (T&G) Eastern White Pine to form its Proprietary Panel, INTEGROOVE®. This Pine Clad Panel substitutes the inner OSB membrane with one of T&G Pine. INTEGROOVE® is also available in EAGLE PANEL SYSTEMS SIPs.
Concerns over Conserving Energy, in part, have led to the use of SIPs. Yesterday’s time-consuming, piecemeal methods are being replaced by today’s synergized, technologically advanced systems. What was done in three steps, can now be done in one step. This is the case in enclosing Log and Timber Frame homes; although not unique to them. EAGLE PANEL SYSTEMS SIP and ISIP® Roof Systems are a natural fit for enclosing Log and Timber-Frame structures. These homes are known for their Soaring Ceilings and Beautiful T&G Pine finishes. EAGLE PANEL SYSTEMS is well-known for the same reasons. The “piece de resistance” of the EAGLE PANEL Roof System is the INTEGROOVE® Cathedral Ceiling Panel. T&G Pine Clad Ceilings are inherent in INTEGROOVE® SIP and ISIP® Roof Systems. An EAGLE PANEL SYSTEMS INTEGROOVE® Roof System creates an Energy-Efficient and Sturdy Roof, a Clear Span Ceiling and the Beautiful Adornment of Pine; all in one step.
As long as a Log or Timber-Frame Roof is Energy-Efficient, the finished home with its high-pitched Ceilings will be Energy-Efficient. EAGLE PANEL SYSTEMS SIPs and ISIPs®, with EPS Insulation and OSB Skins; within themselves make a ridge and rafter Roof System that provides Cathedral Ceilings. Furthermore, ISIPs® provide even more strength. EAGLE PANEL SYSTEMS “INTEGROOVE®” SIPs and ISIPs® provide an added bonus, T&G Pine. Why settle when you can have the most technologically advanced beautiful product available? You can have Energy-Efficiency, Strength, Cathedral Ceilings and Ambience in the same package. EAGLE PANEL SYSTEMS SIP and ISIP® Roof Systems provide Energy-Efficient, Strong Roofs and Cathedral Ceilings. EAGLE PANEL SYSTEMS Energy-Efficient, Strong Roofs and Cathedral Ceilings are further enhanced by the Beauty of “INTEGROOVE®”; now offered pre-finished.

EAGLE PANEL SYSTEMS also manufactures INTEGROOVE® Vaulted or Cathedral Ceiling Panels. INTEGROOVE® is available in both SIPs and ISIP® Roof Systems. Tongue and Groove (T&G) Eastern White Pine provides a completed ceiling in lieu of the OSB interior skins.
Besides our basic SIPs, sometimes referred to as Stress Skin Panels, of Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) Insulation sandwiched between Oriented Strand Board (OSB) skins, used in the Log and Timber Frame Industries, we offer specialty Panels exclusive to our brands.
EAGLE PANEL SYSTEMS is a pioneer in the field of Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs). Thirty years of experience in the SIP Industry has resulted in the development of our exclusive brands.
Eagle Panel Systems Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) are far superior in strength, energy efficiency, and lasting quality when compared to traditional framing/insulating methods. Creating a permanent energy envelope, the panels provide a more comfortable living space. Significantly reducing heating and cooling bills, Eagle Panel Systems SIPs insure continuous savings throughout the life of the structure.
Eagle Panel Systems SIPs provide the additional advantage of eliminating air infiltration. Commonly referred to as R-Value, the measure of resistance to heat flow through insulation, is based on tests conducted under laboratory conditions which do not take into consideration such variables as air infiltration, settling, moisture, compression behind wiring, etc. Other test studies have confirmed that minimal 15 mph to moderately high 25 mph outside winds significantly reduce the thermal performance of loose fill batt type insulation. Outside air enters through the loose fill insulation, which must be vented by moving air, and passes through electrical outlets and around windows and doors. The results of air infiltration are higher energy costs and uneven temperatures.
The energy envelope created by Eagle Panel Systems SIPs eliminates hot and cold spots caused by air leaks. Unaffected by air infiltration and other variables, the R-Value of Eagle Panel Systems SIPs increases in viability. The ability to eliminate air infiltration provides the difference in energy consumption and energy savings
EAGLE Panels used in the Log, Timber Frame, Conventional Home Building, Commercial Building and Coastal Building Industries, have made us an Industry Leader in SIP manufacturing. We offer more than the basic SIP. The benefits of our brands are many. Ask for our brands by name. You'll find that our INTEGROOVE® ISIP® Roof Panels inherently provide finished cathedral ceilings, structural integrity, energy efficiency and lasting quality.
Our ISIP® Roof System works well for the Conventional Home Building and Commercial Building Industries as well as Log and Timber Frame. Integrated Structural Insulated Panel (ISIP®) Roof Systems carry heavier snow loads and span farther than basic SIPs. ISIP® is also used for walls. The difference between the SIP and the ISIP® is the dimensional lumber included in the latter.
