SIPs Inquiries on the Rise

Barrier is seeing a strong increase in SIPs inquiries lately, which might correlate with all the positive PR we've seen on the strength of the commercial building sector. We're keen on this market sector and welcome any additional queries.

I have a feeling this is a dumb question, but what are SIPs?

One more thing: I live in the Twin Cities and own about 15,000 shares thus far. Is there any chance I can visit the Watkins plant and be shown around? I teach economics in both high school and college and the SEC filings about lower average costs of production and increasing revenues are what attracted me to this stock. I'd like to see the new production facilities first hand, if possible.

SIPs stands for Structural Insulative Panels - they generally are a sandwich of 2 structural panels with an expanded foam material in the middle. They are prefabricated in a plant and used in commercial and industrial modular buildings. For example, an entire roof assembly can be put up in one day using SIPs.

Blazeguard provides the thermal barrier required in these applications. In addition, Blazeguard is the best and cheapest way of achieving this thermal barrier.
