HUD Releases New Study on SIPs
The Prescriptive Method for Connecting Structural Insulated Panel Roofs to Concrete Wall Systems covers all types of concrete wall systems, including insulating concrete forms, concrete masonry, removable form systems, precast wall panels, and autoclaved aerated concrete products. Homes built in high wind or seismic zones, however, are not covered.
Funding for the study was provided by HUD’s Partnership for Advancing Technology in Housing program that aims to break down the barriers for innovative housing technologies. Support for the development of the study was provided by the Structural Insulated Panel Association and the Portland Cement Association. For more information, visit www.cement.org.
