Design Considerations for Insulated Sandwich Panel
This seminar explores a range of design considerations to achieve optimum results with ISP, including; structural, thermal, weatherability and fire properties. Andrew Hudson, Specification Manager and industry expert will share the differences between ISP and ACP, the properties of different ISP core types and how ISP complies with Australian Standards.
Formal CPD Points: 1
At the end of this presentation, you should be able to:
• Identify core types for insulated panel (ISP), their different properties and suitability for different types of construction
• Explain the differences between ISP and ACP
• Explain the benefits of Insulated Sandwich Panel
• Articulate the relevant design considerations when specifying ISP, specific to
o Weatherability and
• Outline the difference between expansion joint steps and end lapping and how new systems overcome the risks of end lapping
