Book Description

This Information Paper summarises the findings from a government-funded research project into the performance in fire of Structural Insulated Panel (SIP) systems. It provides recommendations for design based on the results of a series of fire tests on single panels and four large-scale fire tests on complete building systems incorporating SIP wall panels and a floor system comprising engineered floor joists. It will be of value to designers, regulators, warranty providers, manufacturers and contractors.
