First stop for the latest information on insulated panels
Engineered Panels in Construction (EPIC) is a not-for-profit trade association established in 1991 to represent the metal-faced PIR-cored insulated panel industry in the UK. It is a major contributor to UK and European consultative groups and projects, particularly in the areas of regulatory requirements, design, energy conservation, sustainability, fire regulation, waste and end-of-life analysis. It is also the main dissemination service for all issues relating to insulated panel use in construction.
As an industry trade body, EPIC actively participates in the development of various BS and EN/ISO standards and regulations, whilst also working with stakeholders to develop best practice techniques and guides.
By leveraging the experience of its member companies, supported by a range of specialist consultants and stakeholders, EPIC can provide a range of up-to-date technical information and regulatory guidance for specifiers and building specialists. The material it produces covers the many benefits of using insulated panels (also known as sandwich panels), their performance, and any best-practice information available from within the UK and Europe.
The ‘Technical Guides’ include information which is relevant to those working with building envelopes and also reference supporting evidence from industry research programmes, case studies and independent testing.
EPIC guidance documents are available as free PDF downloads, which can be easily accessed via the guides page.
