For Warm, Comfortable Living


We're told by homeowners from all over New Zealand that living in a Formance home is like no other.

Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs, or SIP panels) are high-performing thermally efficient composite panels that consist of a sandwich of two layers of structural board with an insulating layer of foam in between. Used as walls, roofs, and floors in residential and commercial buildings.

Superior Insulation


Formance Panels combine superior insulation with near-zero air leakage, creating a consistently warmer, drier, and healthier indoor environment.

Formance Structural Insulated Panels come in various standard thicknesses and associated R values. If you're wanting to go the extra step with higher R-Values, Formance offers graphite-infused EPS which has approximately 18% higher R-value than standard EPS.


Climate eco friendly sustainable

Caring for our Climate 


Living in a highly energy-efficient home means higher levels of comfort, lower energy bills and lower carbon emissions.

Most methods of construction include high volumes of waste and many products contain nasties that aren't good for our environment. Our approach is different. We ensure the Formance System maximizes the use of limited resources while being eco-friendly and sustainable to have a positive impact on future generations.

Save time on site.


Formance SIPs can be a lot faster than traditional framing, particularly when you consider pre-nailed walls and roof sections. 

If you're building one home or several, time is of the essence so the faster you build the sooner you can make use of the homes.  Project managers will understand the time advantage of closing a home sooner, as this means work can be completed outside as well as inside the home at the same time.
