Four application sections cover structural thermal breaks for: concrete and steel balconies; concrete slab edges; steel canopies and beams; and concrete parapets and steel rooftop connections. Each section compares applications with and without thermal breaks in terms of energy savings and prevention of condensation and mold.
Corresponding product pages detail 12 product types categorized by concrete-to-concrete, concrete-to-steel or steel-to-steel connection methods, and offer technical PDF downloads on features, specifications and installation.
Separate case study sections on concrete and steel applications contain in-depth articles from interviews with specifiers involved in completed projects that incorporate Isokorb® structural thermal breaks in low- to high-rise residences, office complexes, museums, universities, stadiums and public buildings.
Sections devoted to the individual interests of architects, engineers, developers and contractors/installers are provided with resources including: technical design services, general brochures, application brochures, technical articles, technical manuals, installation instructions, research reports, specifications, approvals/certificates, CAD/BIM library, code requirements, lunch & learn sessions, FAQs and green building trends.
"The new site adds numerous images, videos, animations and PDFs geared to first-time users, as well as experienced specifiers accessing resources to expedite a project," says Dacko.
