Like vertical cooling fins, conventional concrete and steel rooftop penetrations that support parapets, solar equipment and HVAC systems, rapidly conduct heat from warm interior structures through thick rooftop insulation into the cold exterior environment. In addition to wasting heat, cold penetrations can quickly form condensation and mold in today's air-tight, higher-humidity interiors, exposing developers to significant remediation and personal injury liability.read more
Schöck thermal breaks for parapets and other rooftop connections can help you avoid a number of issues that can occur when connections are left uninsulated. Isokorb® thermal breaks for parapets provide load-bearing insulation that cuts energy loss through rooftop connections by up to 90%, while eliminating the formation of condensation and mold.
