Houses built technology of SIP panels, which suffered natural disasters, remained standing almost no damage. It’s the construction of the panels, so rigid insulating core on both sides and across the board pasting OSB board. The strength characteristics of the panels, together with special connections that are performed by gluing in combination with the clips or bolts, give this type of construction famed strength and rigidity despite the relatively low dead weight.
Interestingly: After floods in the Czech Republic in 2010 spol. EUROPANEL had the opportunity to assess three houses built of Europanel that were flooded to a height of about 120 cm. Water is ever gotten into panels. Facade with thermal insulation system ETICS were practically damaged. The owners were removed from the walls in the interior soaked drywall and then measured moisture foundation sleepers. After about two to three weeks decreased humidity of the frame from the original 56% to 20%, and there is a correction to interiors.
