Title: An introduction to building with Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs)

Ref Code: IP13/04
Authors: J Bregulla and V Enjily

Abstract1: Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) are a modern method of construction and are becoming increasingly popular as they are light, strong and versatile, thermally efficient and have low air leakage, able to be erected by a fast and predictable construction process. In most applications, SIPs are used as primary loadbearing components. This Information Paper gives information and advice on the design, construction and performance of the generic form of SIPs used primarily for domestic and light industrial construction. It also addresses conformity assessment, purchasing, insurance and other issues.
