Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) Used in Residential Wall Systems

COURSE NO: T04-007
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) Used in Residential Wall Systems
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides prescriptive requirements for the use of structural insulated panels (SIPs) in wall systems in the construction of residential structures. These provisions include definitions, span tables, material requirements, and other related information appropriate for use by engineers, home builders, design professionals, and building code officials.


The Prescriptive Method for Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) Used in Wall Systems in Residential Construction (Prescriptive Method) provides prescriptive requirements to facilitate the use of SIPs in wall systems for the construction of one- and two-family dwellings. By providing prescriptive provisions for the construction of typical homes with SIP systems, the need for engineering can be eliminated or reduced for most applications.


This 4 PDH online course is applicable to engineers, design professionals and construction personnel who are interested in gaining a better understanding of the design and installation considerations of structural insulated panels.
