Build with SIMS

SIMS by Quinn is a unique offering which ultimately delivers an end product which is a step above the major alternatives on the Irish market in terms of thermal, structural and fire performance.

SIMS (SUPER INSULATED MASONRY SOLUTION) is a modern method of masonry construction combining the benefits of Quinn Lite thermal blocks with a certified external insulation system. This is tried and tested construction methodology, which is well established as best practise in many European countries and beyond. Its adoption is on the rise in Ireland thanks to the many advantages it offers, and it’s positioned to become one of the most widely used construction solutions here.
