Description

Structural insulated panels are relatively new in New Zealand. To ensure they are suitable for local conditions, BRANZ has developed a robust test method. This gives manufacturers a way to demonstrate their durability.

Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) are prefabricated sandwich panels that are used for wall, roof and floor systems. SIPs are typically made of a layer of rigid insulating material between metal or timber-based outer skins.

Scope

This article consists of the following parts:

  • Fast solution, but what about durability?
  • BRANZ stepped in to fill gap
  • Durability test method developed
    • Assessment method
    • Experimental work tested methodology
  • Performance varied according to components
  • Next stage – a more holistic approach
    • Durability workstream
    • Seismic performance
    • Fire performance
