Structural insulated panels are typically made using Oriented strand board (type OSB/3), cement bonded particle board, thin concrete panels, plasterboard. Two sheets of the chosen materials are either auto-adhesively or secondary bonded each side of a rigid insulation core. The composite construction of the SIP gives it inherent stability. Complete panels are joined together using proprietary jointing details. Panels can be used to form the main building structure, but may require external cladding as a finish. Structural design and calculations should be undertaken by a structural engineer or other competent person.
