Structural thermal breaks for your canopy and beam connections.
Without thermal breaks, steel penetrations through the otherwise insulated building envelope conduct heat from the building interior into the exterior environment. This is referred to as thermal bridging – a problem that, if left unaddressed, is responsible for significant heat loss through penetrations in the building envelope. These penetrations are far more likely to form condensation and mold in today's air-tight, higher-humidity buildings, exposing developers to remediation and personal injury liability.
Schöck thermal breaks for canopies and steel beams offer load-bearing thermal insulation that helps reduce energy loss by up to 50%, while eliminating the formation of condensation that leads to mold at steel beam and canopy connections.
