Comment | More

Schöck has introduced Isokorb, a thermal bridging element for the building envelope, to the U.S. construction market.

Isokorb is a load-bearing and thermal-insulating element for connecting cantilevers, such as balconies and canopies that penetrate a building’s exterior.

Schöck bills the product as an “off-the-shelf solution to thermal bridging in the building envelope.”

Features and Benefits

Schöck says Isokorb reduces heat transfer through the building envelope and can be used for both concrete to concrete cantilevers and steel to steel canopy connections.

Schock Isokorb

Schöck says Isokorb helps create energy-efficient connections for reinforced concrete and steel.

The product is designed to:

  • Reduce risk of damages from condensation and mold;
  • Save energy and heating costs;
  • Contribute to sustainable building practices and LEED accreditation; and
  • Warm surface temperatures for greater living comfort.

Forming a thermal break in the building envelope with Isokorb also ensures full structural integrity, according to Schöck.

‘Energy-Efficient Connections’

Isokorb is already being implemented in the United States in projects at the Indianapolis Museum of Art, the University of Massachusetts, and the Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth, TX, the manufacturer says.

Matt Capone, national sales manager for Schöck USA, says the technology offers a variety of design options and “plays a vital role in creating energy-efficient connections for reinforced concrete and steel.”

New York City-based Schöck USA Inc. is a subsidiary of Schöck in Germany. Schöck focuses on the development, manufacturing and distribution of innovative construction elements for applications such as thermal insulation, impact sound insulation and reinforcement technology.
