Gold, silver and bronze for Schöck
"Architects' Darling" gold trophy for Schöck Isokorb
Gold for the Schöck Isokorb: With the Heinze award, “Architects' Darling,” German architects and engineers selected the Schöck Isokorb as their favourite product in the category "Balconies, Terraces, Loggias." Silver was awarded to the Schöck Isolink in the category "Fastening Technology" and bronze to the Schöck Isolink type TA-S as the "Best Product Innovation for Structural Construction".

Whether in new construction or renovation, when connecting concrete-to-concrete, steel-to-concrete or steel-to-steel, the load-bearing thermal insulation element Schöck Isokorb is the best solution for minimizing thermal bridges. That is what more than 2,000 architects and engineers declared when they chose the Schöck Isokorb as their top pick for the connection of balconies, loggias and terraces.
Since its invention 1983, the Schöck Isokorb has been one of the most energy-efficient solutions in the field of thermal insulation for cantilevered, concrete balcony connections. The complete range of the Schöck Isokorb product family covers every requirement for insulated connections of cantilevered building elements. As this insulation element is integrated into the structure, thermal bridges are minimised and structural damages avoided.
The second place in the category “Fastening Technology” was awarded to Schöck Isolink, the thermal break fastener for core-insulated concrete sandwich walls and rainscreen cladding façades. As a Certified Passive House Component, Schöck Isolink guarantees dependable thermal insulation and enables thermal bridge free structural design.
