Schöck is known as the thermal break specialist in all areas of insulation and support of cantilevered structural elements. Schöck Isolink® extends this competence to façades – enabling freedom of design and mastery of relevant design issues.read more
We have expanded our product portfolio based on the existing Thermoanker for core-insulated concrete walls and incorporated this into the Schöck Isolink® product family. This now includes a new thermal break fastener for rainscreen cladding façades, which not only complements the product portfolio perfectly, but also offers more freedom in terms of design and material selection.
The requirements stipulated in the EnEV energy-saving regulations have given rise to an increased demand for products that minimise thermal bridges. These requirements can no longer be met with thicker insulation alone, since increasing the thermal insulation layer also increases the effects of the thermal bridges. In core-insulated concrete façades and rainscreen cladding façades, for example, thermal bridges are created by fastenings made or stainless steel or aluminium. As a ‘Certified Passive House Component’, Schöck Isolink® with its glass fibre composite design guarantees dependable thermal separation.
When it came to developing Schöck Isolink® for rainscreen cladding façades, we started by speaking to the people who deal with façade day in, day out: our customers. Working together with experienced architects and façade engineers allowed us to establish a clear need.
All Schöck Isolink® product types have been tested and approved by the German Institute for Structural Engineering (DIBt).
