For balcony insulation. Schöck Isokorb®.

Cantilever-free balconies are a valuable asset to any residential construction project, providing a higher quality of living for the residents of the building. When a balcony slab without thermal partitioning is cast onto a building it creates a thermal bridge. Schöck Isokorb® can eliminate this problem. Effective thermal insulation using Schöck Isokorb® reduces the risk of high levels of condensation, mould formation and the associated damage caused along the ceiling slabs inside of balconies. Thermal outflow and energy loss through the balcony slab is minimized.

The Schöck Isokorb® consists of a highly effective HCFC-free block of Polystyrene insulation foam, which provides the thermal break. The internal forces are transferred through high strength stainless steel rebars and UHPC concrete compression elements. The Schöck Isokorb® offers a safe and easy solution to achieve better R-values. It is delivered to the construction site ready for installation, generating the highest possible safety at the site and in the finished building. The Schöck Isokorb® is available for the connection of reinforced concrete balconies to reinforced concrete buildings and steel to steel. As no two projects are alike the Isokorb® is available in different load-bearing capacities for balconies. The application engineers at Schöck will customize the Isokorb® to suit each individual project.
