Schöck Isolink® GFRP connectors offer an energy-efficient alternative to the conventional stainless steel lattice girders and dowels used when connecting the concrete skins of core-insulated sandwich and element walls.read more
The glass fiber reinforcement is characterized by its very low thermal conductivity. The thermal anchor improves the thermal insulation performance of core-insulated concrete walls by 45% (comparison of thermal conductivity).
With its modulus of elasticity of 60GPa (8,700 ksi) and tensile strength of more than 1,000MPa (145ksi), this thermal anchor protects the wall against cracks and other damage.
Schöck Isolink® also acts as a connector and spacer between the concrete skins within the double wall. It is suitable for both supported and self-supporting façades and enables prefabrication of large-scale, core-insulated concrete elements (up to 6 x 12 m / 20 x 40 ft).
Compact and easy to install, it also improves cost efficiency when prefabricating concrete parts. Schöck Isolink® can be used in conjunction with any type of insulating material, thus offering prefabricating plants and architects a construction material for thermal breaks in façades that is fit for the future.
Schöck Isolink® thermal connectors are certified as a Passive House component in the façade anchor category.
