THE STRUCTURAL INSULATED PANEL
ASSOCIation (SIPA) cites recent Oak Ridge National Laboratory results as evidence that SIPs can help homeowners cut energy costs.
Oak Ridge National Laboratories (ORNL) recently completed testing for the Structural Insulated Panel
Association (SIPA) that proved a 4-inch SIP wall had a higher whole-wall and clear-wall R-value than its more traditional 6-inch counterpart: stick framing (Fig.
