HEFTY Homes is a factory direct distributor for EVG 3D Structural Panels otherwise known as SCIP (Structural Concrete Insulated Panels)  – a new innovative prefabricated panel building system for structures in dry adverse climates where Hurricanes and Earthquakes are a constant danger or where Fire is a constant threat. Its also ideal for Termite-free structures.

 What it is – The SCIP 3D Structural Panels are an extremely strong structural product consisting of a super-insulated core of rigid expanded polystyrene sandwiched between two-engineered sheets of eleven-gauge steel welded wire fabric mesh. To complete the panel form process a nine-gauge steel truss wire is pierced completely through the polystyrene core at off set angles for superior strength, then welded to each of the outer layer sheets of eleven-gauge steel welded wire fabric mesh.

Cement is then applied over the welded wire mesh. The polystyrene core acts as backing for the cement. The combination of the polystyrene core and the cement creates a structural load bearing wall of enormous strength. The cement can be hand or machine applied.

With the SCIP 3D Structural Panels we create a Structure that is Hurricane-safe, Earthquake-safe, Fire-safe, and Termite-free for Your family’s safety.  It is disaster proof , tornado safe, and flood-proof.

Load Bearing – Typical 8-foot-high SCIP 3D Structural Panels with 2.5” polystyrene core using eleven-gauge wire has been tested at a structural load of over 60,300 lbs. The typical wood frame and metal frame wall cannot compare to the strength of the SCIP 3D Structural Panels.

Hurricane-safe & Wind Resistant – SCIP 3D Structural Panels homes are built to withstand hurricane force winds. In laboratory testing, the SCIP 3D structures withstood wind loads of 226 miles per hour.

Earthquake-safe – The SCIP 3D Structural Panels constructed homes are virtually tremor proof surviving earthquakes with zero structural effects.

Fire-safe – The SCIP 3D Structural Panels are an ideal building product for structures in dry adverse climates where fire is a constant threat. The polystyrene core will not burn and does not contain ozone-damaging chlorofluorocarbons (CFC’s) in the manufacturing process or in the product. Structures built with the SCIP 3D Structural Panels are non-combustible and virtually fire resistant, with a minimum 1.5-hour fire rating. A higher rating can easily be attained.

Sound Resistant – The double shell configuration of the concrete plus polystyrene plus concrete sandwich minimizes sound transmissions.

Termite-free – SCIP 3D Structural Panels provide no nutritive value to plants, animals or microorganisms which keeps the termites away.

Safe, durable, and long lasting – The poly core is inert, non-flammable, non-toxic, and water resistant. It will not rot and is highly resistant to mildew. Aging has no effect upon it’s performance and it can withstand temperatures from sub-freezing to 180 degrees, assuring long-term performance.

Cost-Effective and Environmentally Comfortable – The SCIP 3D Structural Panel System has been designed with maximum environmental comfort in mind. The system saves 50% to 80% on heating cost and reduces the needed size and cost of HVAC systems. In one documented test maximum heat loss was just 5%. Our homes will keep you cooler in summer and warmer in winter. A wood structure simply cannot compare.

The modified expanded polystyrene core meets all VA, FHA, and HUD thermal requirements.

Flexible – The SCIP 3D Structural Panels building system has tremendous flexibility. It may be used in place of wood or metal-framed walls, masonry block walls or pre-cast panels. It is an excellent structural system for floors, ceilings, and roofs.

You can build curved or radius walls by cutting the eleven-gauge wire on one side of the panel. This will allow the panel to bend to the desired shape or radius.

Shelves can be created by fastening a horizontal piece of panel to the wall width the use of wire mesh corner angles.

Decorative openings can be created by cutting holes through the panels.


Our SCIP 3D Structural Panel Building System offers an innovative and cost-effective building alternative to traditional building methods. It is the ultimate answer for home owners and businesses who wish to create a truly Hurricane-safe, Earthquake-safe, Fire-safe, and Termite-free structure for Your family’s safety that lasts indefinitely – easily spanning multiple generations.

We build with the panels as well as marketing them.
