movement for building with Structural
Insulated Panels (SIPs). SIPs are the basic
component to create sustainable, selfcontained shelters, homes and buildings.
PFF’s structural insulated panels (SIPs) are an
innovative choice to meet domestic and
international housing needs.
STRUCTURAL INSULATED PANELS
PFF practices environmentally
responsible building methods that
result in a small amount of waste – all
of which is recycled. The production
methods allow for the construction of
housing that is stronger, quicker to build
and better insulated than conventional
building products. This provides a
PFFs’s SIPs are composed of
composite-building materials that consist of a
rigid foam core (expanded polystyrene)
sandwiched between 26-gauge galvalume
steel. PFF panels have been ASTM tested and
UL fire-tested and are certified by the Florida
Product Approval Commission, FL #13379 and
FL #13381. PFF’s high-quality manufacturing
process and panel composition makes our
panels a superior product, as noted by
obtaining Florida’s Product Approval.

STRUCTURAL PERFORMANCE
weather and warmer in the cold weather,
SIP-built structures are better than traditional
construction because they are:
· Structurally stronger than conventional
stick-framed housing construction
· Erected quickly
· More energy efficient
The steel exterior layers combined with the
rigid foam core is much stronger and replaces
the framing, sheathing, insulation and vapor
barrier associated with standard-frame built
homes. PFF’s SIPs replace all of these standard
housing components and, in most cases, our
SIPs are structurally self-sufficient. SIPs can
span longer distances, therefore reducing the
amount of supports that may be needed in
conventional housing design.
which results in a significant reduction
of energy costs. Houses constructed
with the PFF building system are fully
sustainable and will last for generations.
All PFF buildings are designed to use
solar and wind power for continuous
electricity which allows for the inclusion
of water purification systems.
PFF’s SIPs are engineered to the highest
rating for both hurricane and earthquake
protection. Florida International
University’s (FIU) Engineering
Department has designated the PFF
panel as the product of choice for its re-

PANEL CONSTRUCTION
‚‚
The complete assembly allows for a system that is
structurally stronger than conventional stud frame
structures. The EPS core provides rigidity and the metal
skins provide flexural and compressive strength.
‚‚
The structural characteristics of PFF’s panels are similar
to that of a steel I-Beam. The galvanized steel skins
act as the flange of an I-Beam, while the rigid foam
core provides the web of an I-Beam. This design gives
SIPs an advantage at handling compressive loads.
SIPs can be engineered for most applications.
‚‚
Roof panels and walls are engineered to withstand winds
up to 150 miles per hour and are flexible and stable in
earthquake-prone areas. Three-dimensional structural
continuity provides rigidity and stability by creating an
uninterrupted layer over supporting or load-bearing beams.
‚‚
The solid foam core of the insulated panels is
resistant to moisture absorption, thus making
it resistant to insects, mold and mildew.
FEATURES
‚‚
Factory fabrication helps to speed up and
simplify a builder’s construction schedule,
greatly reducing construction time.
‚‚
Fewer trades are needed.
‚‚
Prefabrication reduces chance of material losses
from job site keeping the cost under control.
‚‚
Panels readily meet US building codes in the
hurricane or earthquake prone zones.
‚‚
Structural insulated panels replace traditional
frame construction and fiberglass insulation.
‚‚
A special structural-grade adhesive is applied
to both sides of the unfaced foam core.
‚‚
EPS foam core and metal skins are permanently bonded
together by a 2-part thermosetting structural adhesive.
‚‚
Environmentally friendly component materials are
used in the panel fabrication process. Our foam core
is formulated and treated to resist moisture, heat,
cold, termites and other wood boring type insects.

GREEN BUILDING
US Dept Of Energy Testing Proves SIP Systems Outperforms
Conventional Frame Construction By At Least 66%
SIPs are one of the most airtight and well-insulated building systems available, which makes them
an inherently green product. An airtight SIP building will use less energy to heat and cool, allow for
better control over indoor environmental conditions, and reduce construction waste.
PFF STEEL-FACE SIPS EVEN OUTPERFORM OSB WOOD-FACED PANELS
Studies for the DOE conducted by the Oak Ridge Nation Laboratory (ORNL) document the energy savings of insulated panels versus
traditional insulation. ORNL’s testing shows that the whole wall R-Value of a 4-inch OSB-faced SIP wall rated at R-14 outperforms a 2x6 stickframed wall with R-19 fiberglass insulation (see illustration). However, PFFs’s eco-friendly, steel-faced structural insulated panel has a 30%
higher R-Value than the OSB-faced SIP. Our higher R-Value means that PFF’s panel is safer for the environment and uses less energy than the
OSB-faced panel. PFF SIPs are simply the smartest choice.
PFF SIPS ARE 15x MORE AIRTIGHT THAN
TRADITIONAL CONSTRUCTION
Up to 40% of a traditional home’s heat loss is due to air leakage. In
response to this, SIPs have demonstrated amazingly low blower door test
results when properly sealed. ORNL’s blower door tests reveal that a SIP
test room is 15 times more airtight than its stick frame counterpart with
fiber glass insulation. Based on the reliable performance of SIPs, “ENERGY
STAR for Homes” chose to eliminate the required blower door test for SIP
homes to meet Energy Star standards.

Housing Unit
Solutions In Haiti
During the course of restoring the Florida
“International
University (FIU) Solar House, which
was demonstrated in Washington DC in 2005, we
observed first hand the PFF product in conjunction
with ESPs’ Planet Earth Water Purification &
Delivery System. We are aware that these products
have since been incorporated in the design and
construction of one of the solar-powered 600 sq.
ft. building sent to Haiti for a medical center in
Sean Penn’s J/P HRO camp and another doctor’s
workroom for “No Boundaries” Prosthetic
Organization which provides prosthetics for children
hurt in the earthquake. These PFF sustainable
units will definitely aid the Haitian people in their
rebuilding efforts, as units built with the product
can be constructed quickly with local labor and
are very safe against the elements. It therefore
accomplishes multiple purposes as it employs the
currently underemployed and unemployed and it
provides safe and permanent housing units when
adopted widely.

PFF’s mission is to provide safe, affordable and
sustainable housing for populations throughout the world.
Whether responding to a disaster or supplying
eco-friendly buildings, all structural panels are
pre-designed and constructed in the factory and
assembled on site. The PFF technology allows for building
with strength and speed. In addition, we train unskilled
local labor for installations. The PFF effort to use local
labor in the construction process is a large benefit for
government and corporate clients, as jobs are created for
their constituents. DR. YOUNG TAO
