The offset block for reliable at grade insulation.Schöck Novomur®.

Conventional masonry or thermal insulation solutions absorb moisture at the base of a masonry wall, especially during the construction phase. Insulation effectiveness deteriorates as a result. This can lead to increased thermal losses and heating costs in the finished building, as well as damage caused by the formation of condensation and mould as the wall dries out. Schöck Novomur® insulates the base of the building properly from the beginning.

The effective solution

Schöck Novomur® is a thermally insulating, water-repellent offset block. It ensures highly effective thermal insulation at the base of a building, and a smooth construction process. The thermal insulation elements – Schöck Novomur® for apartment buildings or Schöck Novomur® light for individual houses – are inserted at the base of the building or – more precisely – where the cellar slab meets the rising external and internal wall.

Thanks to its water-repellent properties, Schöck Novomur® absorbs practically no moisture during the construction phase. As a result, it prevents thermal bridges right from the start, whereas conventional masonry blocks take several years to completely dry out. Their thermal insulation performance is drastically reduced during this drying period.

  • Good load bearing capacity
    Adapted to various structural demands: Schöck Novomur® light for single family homes and Schöck Novomur® for apartment buildings.
  • Effective thermal insulation
    Reduces energy costs and prevents damage caused by damp and mould.
  • Water-repellent material
    A dry structure and effective thermal insulation right from the start as virtually no moisture is absorbed during the construction phase.
  • Smooth construction workflows
    No additional workload, unlike designs using conventional offset blocks.
