• A Sipcrete SCIP Panels can be made in 7 Minutes
  • Any core material can be used  Passive standards easily achieved when PIR Core is used
  • No SCIP Thermal Bridge or Interstitial condensation
  • Sipcrete SCIP Have a much smaller footprint than ICF Blocks to the same U Value
  • The Sipcrete Panel uses sheet polyurethane, EPS, XPS, PIR  ETC
  • Using a sheet instead of cut planks of insulation gives a far better Lambda value to the panels
  • The Sipcrete is easy for self builders to manufacture and build with and much lower in price than any other build system.

 

COMPARISON OF COSTINGS & BENEFITS OF SIPCRETE SCIPs

OVER ICF BUILDING BLOCKS & OTHER MODERN METHODS OF CONSTRUCTION 

SIPCRETE PASSIVE WALL PANEL = U VALUE  OF 0.093  COST IS  NETT £34 PER SQ METER

COMPARE WITH

ICF BLOCK BECO  U VALUE = 0.11 PRICE PER SQ MTR NETT PRICE IS £82 A SQ METER

£48 A SQ METER CHEAPER FOR BASIC WALL AFTER FINISH  CIRCA  £85 A SQ MTR CHEAPER.

SIPCRETE SCIPs CAN BE USED FOR ROOF CONSTRUCTION ICF BLOCKS CANNOT

BUILD RATE FOR ICF BLOCKS IS MAX 5 SQ METERS PER HOUR

BUILD RATE FOR SIPCRETE SCIPs IS MINIMUM OF 15 SQ METERS PER HOUR

FOOTPRINT ICF PASSIVE WALL BLOCK = 438 MM  SIPCRETE PASSIVE IS JUST 300 MM

APPLIED CONCRETE TO COMPLETE ICF BLOCK IS AT LEAST 635 KGS PER SQ METER

CONCRETE TO FINISH ANY THICKNESS OF SIPCRETE WALL IS JUST 200 KGS SQ METER

ELECTRICAL & PLUMBING INSTALLATION IS FAR EASIER WITH THE SIPCRETE SYSTEM

THAN ICF AND ANY OTHER BUILDING SYSTEM.

THERMALL MASS CONTRIBUTION WITH SIPCRETE SCIP IS FAR SUPERIOR THAN ICF BLOCKS OR ANY OTHER BUILDING SYSTEM (APART FROM SOLID CONCRETE BRE)

SOLAR HOT WATER HEATING INSTALLED FOR VERY LOW COST
