The “Sipcrete” Thermocore panels are attached to the slab foundation on rebar or channel section mesh strips that are cast into the foundations or fixed with Hilti nails so each panel is continuously fixed to the base/slab.

They are so simple to assemble, only unskilled labour is required

To attach panels to  each other a special connection and aperture closure system is used to ensure thermal bridging does not occur at window and door openings. To connect the mesh simply  joint and secure it with wire ties or a pneumatic fastening tool.

Water penetration across the wall or roof is impossible

Wiring conduit and plumbing are clipped to the steel mesh.The Thermocore Panels are easily cut to prepare apertures for windows and doors.

The Thermocore walls/roofs are then spray coated both inside and outside the building with 40-50 mm of 

The “Sipcrete” Concrete Finish.

Coloured and textured finishes are easily applied
