Schöck says its thermal break modules have outstanding thermal efficiency

Schöck has supplied its Isokorb range of thermal break modules for the new East Park Design Centre at Loughborough University. The modules thermally isolate balconies from the rest of the building. The company says that with zinc cladding and sheer glass surfaces being used on the external envelope, the prevention of thermal bridging and its consequences needed to be considered in the design. The firm claims the Isokorb range was chosen for its outstanding thermal efficiency, as well as allowing connections to be made from concrete to concrete, concrete to steel, and steel to steel.
