Suppliers of: thermal breaks thermal bridging balcony

Schöck are specialists in the supply of innovative and effective solutions for applications such as structural thermal insulation, thermal bridging breaks and noise suppression in new buildings.

Schöck are the UK suppliers of:

 

Isokorb® Thermal Break for Balconies.

Schöck Isokorb® is the heat-insulating load-bearing thermal break for cantilever balconies. Isokorb® prevents thermal bridging and is used for connecting reinforced concrete to reinforced concrete, reinforced concrete to steel and steel to steel balcony decks. Isokerb can be used on both new build and for upgrading of existing balconies.

Tronsole® Stairwell Impact Sound Reduction System.

Tronsole® is Schöck’s effective solution to the problem of impact sound transmission on the stairways of multi-occupier buildings. Tronsole is a maintenance free, ready to build impact sound insulation system that is quick and cost-effective to install and complies with building stairway regulations.

Novomur® Ground Floor Thermal Bridging solution.

The point between the basement slab and outer walls is a danger area where thermal bridges and damp can easily form. Novomur is a insulated block that prevents thermal bridging and damp penetrating buildings at ground level, it serves as the first course at the point where the basement ceiling forms the ground floor outer and inner walls. Novomur® thermal block is built into the first course of brick or blockwork and is available in all regular wall thickness’s: 100 mm, 115 mm, 150 mm, 175 mm, 200 mm and 240 mm and comes in 750 mm standard lengths.

Schöck Expansion Joints in Concrete Slabs.

Schöck shear load connecting dowels are the ready to install stainless steel dowel system that enables the transfer of lateral/transverse forces in expansion joints on concrete slabs in multi story buildings.

Bole® Punching Shear Reinforcement.

The Schöck Bole® is a anti-punching shear system that offers specifiers the advantages of a free floor area. Non-load bearing partition walls are possible, lower noise and reinforcement expenditure, Bole allows room to work freely right up to the ceiling and full use of storey height.

New Schöck Isokorb KS software now available for steel balconies

September 2017

This brand new software from Schöck enables planners to calculate the optimum structural solution for connecting a steel balcony to a concrete frame.

It is fast to download, easy to install and lets you get started immediately. This latest enhancement is an additional module to the existing software available for concrete balcony connections and for steel balconies connected to a steel frame. The software considers load-bearing requirements and internal forces as well as vibration and natural frequency behaviour. It also provides peace of mind that your balcony connection is structurally and thermally compliant with building regulations, with BBA approval and NHBC acceptance. Drawings and/or sketches of correct installation methods are easy to create and it is possible to export in PDF, DWG and DXF file formats.

Schöck and cross-laminated timber feature at Hoxton cinema

Schöck and cross-laminated timber feature at Hoxton cinema

Originally opened in 1914, Hoxton Cinema in London’s East End became a victim of the first wave of mass cinema closures, with its last screening in 1956. The next forty or so years saw the building in Pitfield Street serve as home to a number of different trades and activities, until it eventually fell into disrepair. Today, there has been a transformation and Hoxton Cinema will soon be back in the limelight. The plans, by Waugh Thistleton Architects, are for a replica of the original 1914 Gaumont façade to be reconstructed. Behind it will be a boutique development of contemporary black-brick one, two and three bedroom apartments – and in the basement, with a nod to the past, the doors will be opening to a new three-screen arthouse cinema.

The design consists of two distinct elements. A solid concrete ground level to accommodate the three-screen cinema, and an acoustically insulated cross laminated timber (CLT) upper residential element. This has a stepped western elevation providing gardens and balconies and a lightweight zinc-clad pavilion. The balconies on the western elevation are of steel construction and typically these would be connected to a concrete or steel building frame. However, the less conventional requirement here is to connect the steel balconies to the CLT, fabricated for the project by KLH UK. While cross-laminated timber performs well thermally, the steel cantilever with its high thermal conductivity penetrates the insulation layer, which is the reason why it is still important to minimise the risk of any potential thermal bridging problems.

Schöck Isokorb integrated with CLT

One of the leading solutions on the market for the prevention of thermal bridging, involving practically any cantilever connectivity requirement, is the Schöck Isokorb range. This is a comprehensive range of load-bearing thermal break elements and specifically it is the Isokorb type KST – usually for steel-to-steel connections – which has been cleverly integrated here. The modular design of the Schöck Isokorb type KST ensures that it can be adapted to all profile sizes and load-bearing capacity requirements.

With the Hoxton Cinema project, a right angle steel retaining plate has first been fixed to the CLT outer wall and floor using heavy duty screws. The inner face of the Isokorb KST is then bolted to the retaining plate and the steel balcony in turn is then connected to the outer face of the module. The result is a more rigid structure and the prevention of any increased heat loss or, just as importantly, condensation, particularly where it might occur under the steel retaining plates at the connectivity points with the CLT.

The diverse range of Schöck Isokorb thermal insulation solutions guarantees totally verifiable performance standards, meets full compliance with all relevant UK building regulations, offers LABC Registration and meets the highest standards of BBA Certification.
