Energy Panel Structures (EPS) manufactures pre-engineered building components designed for post frame construction, structural insulated panels and refrigerated and freezer structure. Whether you choose a post frame or SIP building, it is designed to provide a high value in ease and speed of construction, quality and durability of the final building.
EPS is a manufacturer of pre-engineered post frame buildings. Whether your new pole barn construction (now called post frame construction) will be used for implement storage, horses or a work area, EPS can engineer and manufacture post frame buildings to any size and need. Their years of experience combined with the latest in technology goes into all pole building plans. If you are looking for pole building plans, be assured that EPS provides state-of-the-art engineering into every post frame building they design. With custom pole barn construction, you will enjoy long span trusses with wide open areas that offer the flexibility you need in a storage or work building.
Structural Insulated Panels (SIP) join high performance rigid foam insulation to Oriented Strand Board (OSB) or plywood. The thickness of foam is adjusted to increase R-Value. Solid core panel structures are versatile. We'll help design the best possible solution to fit any of your building needs. EPS can provide combination post-frame storage and Solid Core Panel walls in one building to enhance insulation and performance.
Energy savings is measured in whole wall R-Value, not just insulation values. The 6-inch core walls outperform standard steel or stick built walls by over 50%.
Interior wall temperatures are much improved over stick or steel walls. Solid core walls have no sagging insulation, no compressed insulation, no air movement, only solid cores. With no thermal shortcuts to external walls, they simply translate to large savings on your utility bills. The results speak for themselves. The core panel system is 15 times better at stopping air infiltration. This offers you a comfortable building by virtually eliminating drafts.
All types of buildings can be engineered in just about any dimension.
Solid Core Homes
The first Solid Core type construction was made in 1935 and the buildings are still in use today, nearly 70 years later. Every EPS home package includes pre-assembled, insulated headers, along with window and door cutouts and horizontal and vertical electrical chases. Drywall is field applied to the OSB panels as needed. Using EPS solid core roof panels, a home can have high vaulted ceilings. The biggest benefit of Solid Core Design versus a stick built home is energy efficiency. Don't pay to heat and cool the outdoors! Air leakage and improperly installed insulation can waste 20 percent or more of the energy you pay to heat and cool your home. Typical homes have so many leaks, it's like having a window open all the time, winter and summer.
