Timber structures - Structural insulated panel roof construction - Test methods
|Publication Date:||1 September 2016|
|ICS Code (Timber structures):||91.080.20|
This International Standard specifies test methods for determining, for use in roofs, the structural properties of double-sided load bearing structural insulated panels having
- two face layers, at least one of which is a wood-based structural panel, and
- a core made of a thermally insulating material having sufficient shear strength to cause the face layers to act together structurally.
NOTE 1 Gypsum-based structural boards can be used as one face layer.
NOTE 2 Panels can contain internal framing or bracing.
NOTE 3 The performance of panels with non-structural insulation is generally calculable according to design codes such as EN 1995-1-1, or tested according to appropriate standards.
