What is Integrated Post and Panel (IPP)?
The Integrated Post and Panel (IPP) system from Trinity is a new system of construction that combines energy efficiency, speed of construction and affordability.
The patented IPP system combines the strength and beauty of Post and Beam
construction with the energy efficiency of Polyurethane Structural Insulated
Panels. This airtight technology delivers sustainable savings and quiet comfort
using reduced mechanical systems and substantially less energy to heat or cool a
building. The simplified Post and Beam design and OSB Panel skins use less
timber and new growth forest resources creating an eco-friendly, recyclable and
longer lasting building.
Fixed Cost Budgeting
Every IPP project offers many advantages over traditional framing.
budget and plan with predictable certainty, reducing cost overruns, trade
delays, overlaps, inaccuracies, errors, material waste and costly downtime. The
IPP building envelope installs quickly and replaces a spectrum of trades and
materials. This translates into a larger portion of the project completed in
less time with airtight accuracy.
As a result, your project runs smoother easing coordination and scheduling
tasks. Interior and exterior trades can start and finish sooner improving output
capacity, while simplifying tasks with opportunity for reduced expenses.
What benefits does the IPP system offer?
The IPP construction system's use of existing materials is innovative and flexible. Existing designs can easily be adapted to support IPP innovations.
Your projects now offer more value
for every consumer dollar spent.
Buyers will realize ongoing benefits.
Supplier rebates, energy saving
initiatives, less operating cost, less
energy use, increased comfort and
safety are immediate benefits.
Extra usable space and a longer life
cycle including a higher resale value
makes investing in an IPP built
home a lasting advantage for many
generations to come.
- Extreme Energy savings
- Appeal of Natural Timber
- Comfort & Safety of
Integrated Insulated Panels
- Quicker Build
- Environmentally Friendly
How is the IPP system supported?

Quiet, Strong Eco-friendly and Airtight Technology
The patented IPP system combines the strength and beauty of Post and Beam construction
with the energy efficiency of Polyurethane Structural Insulated Panels.
- At over R-7.5 per inch, the IPP system exceeds the newest building code regulations
- Our insulation rates at R28+ for 4.5-inch walls and R40+ for 6.5-inch roof panels
- Airtight technology delivers substantial comfort and savings
- Polyurethane insulation reduces sound penetration
- Polyurethane insulation results in greatly reduced energy to heat or cool a building
- The Post and Beam design uses less timber (and no old growth timber)
- The OSB Panel skins recycle wood chips
- All materials are recyclable and longer lasting
- Adhesive property of our insulation penetrates directly into the OSB or Magnesium Oxide Board skins
- Polyurethane outperforms the old Polystyrene SIPS whose adhesive can delaminate
- Our insulation is free of CFCs, VOCs and HFCs, resulting in one of the greenest foams available today.

building industry today. The
permeance rating is 1.2. No pests,
No allergens, No dust, No Mildew,

Fire Resistance. With a Class 1
rated foam, the highest rating a
building product can obtain,
polyurethane is not a source for
fire. On its own, it will not burn and
will extinguish itself. Polyurethane
is a thermal-set plastic, which will
not melt. At 1000 degrees it will
only char. An impressive 2 Hour fire
rating that provides extra time and
