EPS is a recognized leader as a manufacturer of pre-engineered buildings which are custom designed to fit your needs and then built for you by our network of professional builders.

Energy Panel Structures manufactures pre-engineered building components designed for post frame construction, structural insulated panels and refrigerated and freezer structures.

SIP construction is used for new home construction, commercial buildings and on the farm use in storage, shop or office buildings. Structural Insulated Panels join high performance rigid foam insulation to Oriented Strand Board (OSB) or plywood. The thickness of foam is adjusted to increase R-Value. Regardless of the final use, building with structural insulated panels gives the owner a high-performing energy efficient building. An EPS insulated panel walls are up to 15 times more airtight than stud walls. SIP construction offers great design flexibility with larger clear spans and high vaulted ceilings.

For those on the farm, EPS can engineer and manufacture a post frame or SIP building for any size and need. Use it has a horse barn, machinery storage shed or work area. Our pre-engineered buildings are used for livestock, equestrian, poultry, dairy or storage needs. Post frame buildings can incorporate long span trusses to provide large open areas giving you flexibility for real world use. Our post frame buildings use laminated columns that are placed in direct contact with the ground or on concrete. These laminated columns are pressure treated with preservatives to increase their longevity. EPS posts carry a 50-year warranty. 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.

Solid Core Agricultural Buildings

Insulate Panel Systems

Our solid core panel structures are versatile. We'll help design the best possible solution to fit your agricultural needs. EPS can provide combination post-frame storage and Solid Core Panel walls in on ebuilding to enhance insulation and performance.

Structural Insulated Panels join high performance rigid foam insulation to Oriented Strand Board (OSB) or plywood. The thickness of foam is adjusted to increase R-Value. 

Energy savings is measured in whole wall R-Value, not just insulation values. Our 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. Our core panel system is 15 times better at stopping air infiltration. This offers you a comfortable building by virtually eliminating drafts.

Choose from the standard R-18, R-26, R-33 or R-40 walls. The colder the outside temperature--the better the R-Value. All types of buildings can be engineered in just about any dimension.

EPS panel systems offer complete customization of roof materials. The most popular are trusses with purlins or structural insulated panels over the top of trusses which offer open attic designs. Shingles, standing seam roofs or virtually any roofing material can also be used.

As with the roofing, siding options are also limitless. Brick, vinyl, cement board siding or just about any material is easily attached to our core panel surface. 

 Proven Stronger:

Impact resistance is another standard feature of structural insulated panels. The continuous bonding of EPS insulation to the OSB or plywood offers incredible strength and resistance to impact.

Vertical and horizontal stress loads are tested two times stronger than conventional stud walls. EPS walls resist up to 7,000 pounds per foot which results in structures that are stronger, straighter, taller and wider.

EPS buildings are engineered with IBC codes to your wind and snow loads and can be stamped in 50 states. EPS has state-of-the-art production facilities and five truss lines to give you cost-effective solutions.
