The Punapods difference is in the proprietary patent pending SIPrails™ building system. Taking advantage of 21st century innovation, the canted walls are possible due to the increased strength of SIPrails™ and nearly double the living space. The state-of-the-art SIPrails™ system simplifies and shortens the construction process, increases structural integrity 6-fold and ensures standardized quality during the onsite build.
SIPrails™ are fabricated to accommodate Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) thickness ranging in depth from 7.25” to 12”. The unique patent pending SIPrails™ use extruded aluminum rails rather than 2×6’s to band the SIPs giving them six times the strength. In all of our models the SIPrails™ come standard encapsulating 9.25” SIPs, except in the Classic+ that uses 7.25” SIPs. In our factory the SIPs are pre-cut with windows and doors and encapsulated with the SIPrails™.
The unique, proprietary, interlocking SIPrails™ system is incredibly easy to assemble. Each of the SIPrails™ includes a pair of connectors coupling and locking together a pair of structural insulated panels. SIPrails™ eliminate the need screws and nails, wood members and wood inserts. Punapods™ arrive on site with all of the components required for the complete installation and a complete home.
