Single and Double Layered Vacuum Insulation Panels of the Same Thickness in Comparison
The thickness of VIP used in the building envelope of primarily 20 mm in 2004 has reached a value of up to 60 mm in 2010. Hence a VIP double layer represents an alternative to thick single layers. The presented study on staggered, non-staggered and thick single VIP layer compares these alternatives with respect to thermal bridge and aging effects. These effects are both dependent on VIP thickness.
