Posted By: JSHarrisMy only slight worry about this system, and the other foam sandwich structural systems, is the longevity of the PU/PIR foam,
Posted By: JSHarrisThe snag is height. If I have internal timbers in the roof, they will take up maybe 200 mm to 250 mm to cover the span needed, then I'd need another 200 mm of insulation, then battens, slates etc, pushing the total roof thickness up to around 450 mm or so I think. With SIPs I could get away with a 175 mm SIPs panel plus 60 mm of internal PIR, plus internal skinning and the roof battens, slates etc for a total roof panel thickness of around 300 mm.

Posted By: Cav8andrewJonti, if as my situation it is not an internal measurement issue. It is an agreed overall height of building (taken from some datum point) and established at planning approval stage. Once this is fixed everything works back from it.
