Schöck Isokorb® structural thermal break applications include insulating balconies, canopies, slab edges, parapets and rooftop equipment connections where they penetrate the building envelope.read more
Uninsulated balconies, canopies, slab edges and parapets and rooftop equipment connections that penetrate insulated building envelopes create thermal bridges between the exterior structure and the interior supporting structure. This thermal bridge is a weak point in the building envelope insulation layer and allows heat to easily transfer through the building envelope. Not only does this lead to energy waste, but also results in uneven interior floor temperatures, as well as condensation and mold growth.
When Schöck Isokorb® Structural Thermal Breaks are incorporated into your design, they prevent these problems by insulating the building envelope precisely at the point of penetration, offering multiple benefits:
