The NedPanel building system is specially designed to greatly simplify the construction of Modular houses. In fact, we have created a modular building element that takes modular building one step further. Simply adding or changing a NedPanel element easily modifies the length or shape of a modular unit.
The registered NedPanel building element is much more than just a “building block”. The all-in-one element from NedPanel combines the following properties in one product:
– Structural element applicable as a floor, interior and exterior walls and roof.
– High insulation value due to the use of Nontoxic PIR foam free from CFK and HCFK.
– Extremely suitable for airtight construction.
– Directly finish able interior and exterior walls with almost all facade materials.
– Wall construction with A1 Class fire-resistant Mgo façade plating.
– Integration of pluggable electrical cabling.
– Integration of cold and hot water pipes.
– Integrated damp-proof barrier.
– Interior and exterior primed for direct application of finish layer.
R-SIP Building elements
The NedPanel building elements are so-called ‘Reinforced structural insulated panels’ or in short; R-SIP. The R-SIP panels are standardized in size, include a structural loadbearing frame, offer industry leading insulation values (up to R-value 56, U-value 0,1 W//(m2K), have an integrated damp-barrier and are primer coated to protect the panels during assembly in bad (Dutch) weather conditions. The primer also forms a basecoat for direct application of interior and exterior stucco and glue for façade finishes.
Building with NedPanel R-SIP system reduces not only up to 70% labor hours to finish the house. It also reduces more than 30% of different materials needed to build the house because of the integration of damp control layers, primer coating and technical installation.
The R-SIP elements from NedPanel can be used as wall, roof and floor panels. Because the panel thickness matches the standard construction wood sizes, it is easy to connect with CLS or SLS wood. This is especially useful if extra reinforcement is needed in a wall or suspended floor or roof. If maximum insulation is more important you can use the thermal bridge free NedPanel connector. This connector also is available with an internal 40mm PVC tube that can be used for additional system installation after the house is completed.
Technical Panel system
To reduce the onsite construction time, NedPanel created a gamechanger for system installation. We created a unique system consisting of 18 different technical-panels each with integrated pipes for cold &hot water, drains, electric- and data cables. Each offering a specific Plug & Play installation solution. There are for instance technical panels for; Showers, Bathroom sinks, Kitchen appliances, Toilets, Light switches, Smart Ventilation, Power sockets, TV, Co2 sensor & Thermostat, etc.
In the design process or even as late as during the construction of the house you simply position the technical panel in the wall where you want to locate the specific function. The connection of the water- and electric system is positioned on the roof- or elevation floor panel on the topside of the technical-panel and covered with a false metal-stud/Mgo ceiling.
The simplicity of the Plug & Play system installation makes the NedPanel houses easy and quick to assemble with minimum need for specialized, hard to get and expensive professionals.
Difference between conventional SIP Element and R-SIP from NedPanel
Conventional SIP elements are mostly constructed with 2 elements. Two Skin Plates on the outside of the SIP element with a glued or sometimes injected foam core. Mostly the SIP panels are made from OSB board or sometimes cement based- or composite boards. Every house-type needs to be individually engineered. This is time consuming and costly operation. For every SIP-house type a ‘kit’ must be manufactured by cutting and milling the standard sized SIP panels. This process generates waist because of the cutting losses
R-SIP from NedPanel turns this ‘Old-School’ approach upside down. We realized this by limiting the standard width of NedPanel’s R-SIP elements to two width sizes: 0,60m (half Panel) and 1,20m (full panel) and fixed standard lengths.
All the doors and windows are also based on these sizes. With this given were able create our own design method of the R-SIP elements eliminating the need to modify panels. In close collaboration with our sister company BetaalbaarWonen BV a complete range of energy+ house designs were created following our design method. In the near future extreme short lead time can be achieved for our standard house kits, because all the panels can be delivered out of stock. Stocks can be kept in partner warehouses or hardware stores or virtually anywhere. No other building system can offer this flexibility with lead time measured in hours or days, instead of weeks or months!
Building with Magnesium, a proven technology
Mgo building products are already for more than 100 years extensively used in many different fields in civil construction projects. Building with Mgo however is relatively new in Europe. In the United States Mgo is extensively used in the hot and humid climate of Florida to build hurricane proof houses. In Japan they use Mgo construction in regions with seismic activity. The relative lightweight and natural flexibility of the Mgo houses withstand better forces of nature compared to traditional built houses.
Global Warming triggered changes in the climate. Construction projects are more exposed to extreme temperature changes, storms, increasing danger of fires and heavy rain. Building codes need to be tightened to comply with the demand of more advanced and better performing construction materials that meet the new environmental standards and greatly enhance energy performance. NedPanel uses the Mgo construction panels to not only meet these new standards but to exceed them by far.

Magnesium (Mg) is making up 13% of the planet’s mass and a large fraction of the planet’s mantle and an abundant element in the Earth’s Crust. It is the third most abundant element dissolved in seawater, after sodium and chlorine. It is green, renewable, functional, and is used in many modern materials and applications. NedPanel uses reinforced Magnesium oxide (Mgo) as façade boards. Mgo panels are outperforming in durability and price standard building materials. Mgo is a sustainable alternative for gypsum, wood panels, Portland cement products and especially particle boards (OSB) and plywood.
Magnesium Oxide (MgO) is produced by the calcination of Magnesium Carbonate or Magnesium Hydroxide. It is a white solid mineral that occurs naturally and consists of a lattice of Mg2+ ions and O2− ions held together by ionic bonding. To extract the Magnesium oxide less than 1/3 of the energy is needed compared to cement.
The production of the Mgo board is almost energy free. The hardening process to manufacture the Mgo boards is triggered by natural reaction between the components. No ovens are needed just curing in open air-drying stations. Only the energy of the sun is needed for this process. All the components in the Mgo boards (magnesium sulfate, magnesium oxide, Glass fiber and Bamboo fibers) are of 100% recyclable and non-pollutive to the environment.
