Hemsec is a values-driven manufacturer, whose brand is implicitly trusted by the industry for its quality and ethics. It produces the UK’s widest range of BBA accredited, market-leading insulated panels, for buildings created using a fabric-first approach to Modern Methods of construction.
SIPs enable very flexible design, which allows the architect to create beautiful and unique sustainable buildings with built-in insulation, which can meet and even exceed Passivhaus standards. The internal space is significantly greater than traditional brick-and-block, and Hemsec’s unique range of panel sizes means even greater design freedom to use thinner panels to free up more space, and the thickest panels available in the UK for the highest levels of thermal performance.
The high-quality structural strength of Hemsec’s panels means it is possible to design large roof spans with no need for additional roof trusses; this feature is conducive to creating additional space and light.
Hemsec’s robust structural testing regime is central to its brand strength. Its products are tested for fire, acoustic and thermal properties. The company manufactures both steel- and timber-framed insulated panels and its OSB/3 timber is PEFC accredited.
“I believe that Hemsec are best placed to service the needs of the construction industry heading towards new regulations in 2025 and the target of net zero.” Iain Macbeath B Arch Hons DA Edin RIAS RIBA
