Isokorb® Thermal Break Applications.Insulate building envelope penetrations.

Schöck Isokorb® structural thermal break applications include insulating balconies, canopies, slab edges, parapets and rooftop equipment connections.

Uninsulated balconiescanopiesslab edges and parapets and rooftop equipment connections that penetrate insulated building envelopes create a thermal bridge between the cold exterior structure and the warm interior supporting structure. This thermal bridge is a weak point in the building envelope insulation layer and allows heat to easily escape. Not only does this lead to energy waste, but also results in cold interior surfaces, which can encourage mold growth and present uncomfortable and even unhealthy conditions for occupants.

When Schöck Isokorb® Structural Thermal Break products are incorporated into your wall assembly, they prevent these problems by insulating the building envelope precisely at the point of penetration, offering multiple benefits:

    • Prevent condensation and mold
    • Reduce heat loss by up to 90%
    • Improve the effective R-value of your building envelope by up to 50%
    • Increase warmth of interior floors by up to 19°C/34°F
    • Meet code requirements for continuous insulation
