A solution that sits comfortably with everyone. The SchĂśck IsokorbÂŽ thermal break element.
Thermal bridges are a frequent cause of increased heat and energy loss, dampness and mould formation. The problem arises particularly on cantilevered elements such as balconies. The Schöck Isokorb® provides construction experts with an effective countermeasure, not only by thermally separating element from one another, but also acting as a structural component. This is why it is referred to as a load-bearing thermal insulation element. If the Schöck Isokorb® didn’t already exist it would have to be invented!
What is a thermal bridge? Thermal bridges are areas in the external envelope where, due to material and/or design, a greater outward flow of heat occurs than in adjacent areas. A distinction is made between geometrical thermal bridges (the principle of increased surface area with “cooling fin effect”) and material thermal bridges (coupled components with differing thermal conduction). In practice there is often a mix of both effects. The classic example of this is the balcony slab.
Thermal imaging dramatically demonstrates the increased outflow of heat.
The dangers of thermal bridges In the area of the thermal bridge the temperature of inside surfaces drops to such a degree that during the cold months there is a serious risk that the temperature will fall below the dewpoint. This leads to condensation and mould growth, which is one of the major sources of respiratory allergies such as asthma.
25° 20° 15° 10°
A dramatic temperature decrease will result in condensation and mould growth.
Expensive side effects Due to the increased outward flow of heat around the thermal bridge more heating energy has to be used in order to maintain a constant room temperature. Thermal bridges can be responsible for up to a third higher energy requirements.
The Schöck Isokorb® is a noticeable factor in energy savings.
The leader in thermal and sound insulation. The new Schöck Isokorb® XT with HTE Module.
Improved insulating material Decreased thermal conductivity thanks to Neopor®1) (λ = 0.031 W/(m·K))
Increased insulation thickness The insulating element thickness of the Schöck Isokorb® XT is 120 mm.
Optimised shear force rods Compared to the Isokorb with an insulation thickness of 80 mm, the angle of inclination of the shear rods is less but with equal load bearing capacity. For improved impact sound insulation.
Optimised HTE module Schöck has once again improved the time-tested HTE (High Thermal Efficiency) module that has been used for many years: A new recipe for the heavy-duty micro-steel fiber concrete with the aggregate Kronolith2) increases the thermal insulation of the HTE module by more than 40% with a same cross section. The new HTE module also keeps its impressive load capacity and its time-tested safety features. The result is a excellent combination of high load capacity and optimized thermal insulation. This innovative solution is one of the keys to the low thermal conductivity of the Schöck Isokorb® XT.
Schöck, the inventor and innovator of the Isokorb has once again redefined ‘state-of-the-art’ when it comes to thermal break technology. With the Isokorb type XT we have taken a further step into the future by achieving 30 % more thermal insulation and 50 % more impact sound insulation. This exceptional combination of thermal insulation and impact sound protection performance for balconies and walkways is confirmed by the XT being the only element of its type to be accredited to German Passivhaus standard.
Approved by the Passivhaus Institute5) Top thermal insulation element for cantilever balconies. Now even passive houses can be constructed with free cantilever balconies without a problem. The new Schöck Isokorb® XT is approved as a “low thermal bridge construction” by the Passivhaus Institute.

Excellent thermal insulation Thanks to HTE compression modules, minimized reinforcement content, and improved Neopor® insulating material.
The Schöck Isokorb®, with an insulation thickness of 80 mm or 120 mm and HTE modules, offers guaranteed safety and efficiency. With its perfected and detailed solutions, there are many engineering, design and handling advantages for the construction site.
Installation-optimised Whether it's on the building site or at the precaster: No more snags when installing into the reinforcement. This is ensured by particular product components in the Isokorb. With Schöck Isokorb®, the fixing of the tension rods is not done by welding distributor, as before, but is instead released with a plastic bars profile, which also shields the fire protection plates. A clever clip technology in the HTE module contained
with in the insulating material ensures proper fixing of the shear rods and compression modules. The special form of the shear rods and the flush arrangement of the HTE compression modules with in the insulation saves additional time and costs in installation in any situation. This has also been verified in case studies.

Research institute confirms effectiveness of Schöck Isokorb® KST: The fact that the global reduction of CO2 emissions is also an important objective in steel construction is illustrated by the EEBIS European Research Project. The EEBIS project was also the impetus for additional detailed studies carried out in the area of thermal bridges in steel construction by the RWTH Aachen. The results are clear: None of the common solutions meet legal requirements for thermal insulation and energy conservation, with one exception: the Schöck Isokorb® KST. As the only thermal separation for steel construction, the KST satisfies all regulations and thus offers 100 % security in planning, minimized energy costs, and no danger of structural damage.
Free cantilever beams or canopies, balconies or walkways, the Schöck Isokorb® type KST offers complete freedom of design when it comes to steel construction. The unit is able to withstand extremely demanding loads and is effective against bending moment and shear force. Its stainless steel components mean that the unit is corrosion-resistant.

Renovation concept. With Schöck Isokorb® type KST.
Thermal break between steel balcony and timber beam floor.
Thermal break for timber beam floors. In many old buildings the intermediate floor is a timber beam structure. To produce a thermally separated balcony connection the floor structure is partially exposed in the connection area. A steel profile with a faceplate is then fixed to the wooden beams. The Schöck Isokorb KST is connected to the faceplate at the point where the facade is penetrated. The steel structure for the new balcony is mounted from outside. The vertical loads in the connection area are passed into the wall through new supports realised by cast concrete. This ensures an optimal thermal break between the balcony and the slab.
The benefits of the Schöck Isokorb® at a glance. • Effective thermal insulation • Design flexibility • Protection from structural damage • Modular construction • Savings on heating costs • Simple installation
85% of existing buildings are poorly insulated or not insulated at all. It is therefore necessary to upgrade older buildings using extensive thermal insulation measures. Preventing thermal bridges at the balcony connection is critical, if the solution is to meet full compliance with the Building Regulations. Incorporating the IsokorbÂŽ at the balcony connection means that it is possible to guarantee the same high standard of thermal performance for balcony renovation work as was previously only available for new buildings. Experienced structural engineers from our Design Support Department are on hand to provide any help you may require in developing specific proposals for refurbishment projects.
Thermal break between concrete balcony and reinforced concrete inner slab.
Simple solution for reinforced concrete slabs. When dealing with an existing load bearing RC slab, the first step is to cut the concrete back where the balcony has to be connected, exposing the reinforcement. After that a steel angle plate (see illustration) is fixed on site. Concrete is poured into the cut-back area to complete and strengthen the bond between the steel components and the existing slab, creating a load bearing connection. The thermal break is formed by fitting the type KST IsokorbÂŽ to the steel angle plate. This creates two options for the external connection â€“ a steel balcony using a front plate, or a concrete balcony, using a front plate with pre-welded tension bars.
Thermal break between steel balcony and reinforced concrete inner slab.
The renovation solutions guarantee compliance with the requirements for prevention of condensation and mould along with total design freedom.

Having a place with peace and quiet to return to is one of our most basic needs. Especially in a time that's full of hectic activity and noise, people increasingly need a place for quiet relaxation. Therefore, noise protection in buildings can not be considered a luxury, but rather a necessity. Planners need to pay close attention to stairways in multi-family buildings in particular. Indeed, noise in these locations is a frequent, even daily, point of contention. And needless to say, the legal concerns speak for themselves.

They're the same! Or maybe not? A look at practical practice reveals the following: Planners carefully choose building components in accordance with the objective , and based on knowledge and calculations. And then? When the time comes to begin construction, in many cases other products which were not specified in the contract end up being used. This way of doing things is problematic, however, as is clearly indicated by the OLG Munich judgment of July 9, 1983: "If the likelihood of damage arising from an installed product that does not conform to the technical specifications is even one percent, then equivalence shall no longer be present". Specified materials and products should therefore also be used for this reason as well. A substitution is only permissible in cases where the alternate product is at least equivalent or better, or if the client provides written consent to the change.
Subject: Warranty obligation "If a contractor wishes to avoid any resulting restrictions of use or damages - and thus any warranty obligation - he or she must explain to the client the risks associated with the concerned materials or methods, including any limits to what is known, and ensure the cleint's consent. This is all the more advisable considering that when there is uncertainty concerning the risks of use, it must be announced as a structural defect." OLG Munich, BauR 1981, 577

Finishing touches for concrete elements. Schöck shuttering element ASE.
— Time and cost-intensive makeshift formwork made of wood or polystyrene becomes a thing of the past. An important contribution to saving waste and reducing the costs of disposal. — The joint connectors optimise residual quantities in order to make the best possible use of the element. Corner connectors enable reliable and clean mitring in corner areas.
Schöck shuttering elements are well suited for all concrete components that need to have smooth and flawless aesthetical quality that is free of irregularities or cavities.
High quality — The homogeneous, high-density fiberous concrete from ASE has a tensile strength of 15-16 N/mm2 and corresponds to a C40/50 in all relevant exposure classes. It is, thus possible to produce high quality end products. — The effectiveness of the sealing strip has been time-tested, and prevents leaks. An uneveness in the steel formwork of up to 5 mm can easily be covered.
Appearance Clean surface, homogeneous cavity-free concrete with chamfered edges. The chosen synthetic fibers allow for excellent tensile strength. All relevant exposure class requirements of the DIN 1045-1 are met.
Fixed heights ASE slab: 10 to 40 cm ASE stair landing: 9/10/12/14 cm ASE element slabs: 7 cm Other elements on request
Fixed lengths up to 2.70 m 2.70 m 0.50 m to 2.70 m
Rationalisation is currently a key consideration for building work. However, with such pressure to keep costs low, it is important that the quality does not suffer. Schรถck shuttering elements improve the finish of concrete elements and make a major contribution to rationalising production methods. With this system you can cut costs whilst still offering your customers impressively high quality standards.
The right fit for every application
Expert assessment report The extremely low water penetration depth of the highly sealed element passed the freezing and thawing test according to DIN 52 104. The test covered the bond from the concrete filling point up to the fibrated concrete.
A strong connection The tried and tested internal profile secures the bond between the element and the fresh concrete. The connecting technology ensures a better transition between elements in joint and corner areas.
Effective water barrier The form of the strip in the fibrated concrete ensures that rainwater is drained away when the unit is in use.
Sealing strip Extremely easy to remove once the component has been lifted off. Even with uneven steel formwork no cement slurry will run underneath.
ASE for balconies with the specially formed drip nose
ASE without sealing strips for all block-outs such as staircase block-outs
ASE with two sealing strips for element walls
ASE-Thermo for insulated walls
ASE P for stair landings and stair supports
