Schöck are the UK suppliers of:
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.
The Schöck Thermoanker is the energy-efficient alternative to conventional stainless steel lattice girders when connecting the concrete skins of core-insulated sandwich and element walls. Compact and easy to install, it also improves cost efficiency when prefabricating concrete parts. The Schöck Thermoanker can be used in conjunction with any type of insulating material, thus offering prefabricating plants and architects a construction material for thermal breaks in façades that is fit for the future.
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.
Whether you are installing concrete slabs in high-rise buildings or supporting walls in underground garages: Distributing the shear forces in dilation joints usually requires additional time and effort. Schöck Dorn are quite the opposite. The shear reinforcement and heavy-duty dowels for transferring shear forces in expansion joints are ready for installation and dispense with the need for complex detailed solutions. This shear reinforcement is affordable, reliable and intelligent.
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.
For decades, steel has been the material of choice for reinforcement in concrete construction. But in particularly corrosive surroundings or construction that must be executed without steel, conventional steel rebar does not satisfy the relevant requirements. This is where Schöck Combar® glass fibre reinforcement offers all sorts of options.
Schöck customer support offer a totally comprehensive information service which includes: software, planning, in-house training, seminars and comprehensive technical specification details.

Schöck Isokorb for Luxembourg AAA passive house
Schöck Isokorb for Luxembourg AAA passive house:
The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg has been promoting thermal insulation and energy efficiency on a timescale ahead of most European countries. And passive house construction techniques already constitute the minimum standard for domestic new builds.
Every new home in Luxembourg since 2017 has to meet the requirements of energy class AA, which equates to virtually zero energy consumption.
One recently completed residential building at Burden, in the north of the country, has gone even further and achieved an AAA Luxembourg Passive House classification. “In order to achieve these values, we conducted a thermodynamic simulation using the 3D model of the house,” explains architect Serge Schmitgen. “We wanted to distribute solar gains over the course of the day in a way that meant the building could be heated and cooled using as little energy as possible”.
Minimal thermal bridging was critical
The balcony on the building serves to provide shade, but at the same time exploits the maximum amount of daylight.
The specification was demanding and eliminating any risk of thermal bridging at the balcony connection was critical. The architect had no hesitation in turning to Schöck, using two types of Isokorb variants on the front and on the sides of the 1.60m x 4.00m concrete balcony.
With their pressure bearings made of microfibre-reinforced high-performance fine concrete and an insulating element measuring 120 mm thick, the certified passive house components fitted together seamlessly without expansion joints into the reinforced concrete inner slab layer.
The installation involved first placing the balcony cladding and floor slab into position. Then the load-bearing thermal insulation elements were secured to the steel reinforcements using binding wire. The floor slab and balcony could then be covered with concrete in a single pour, with the balcony being thermally isolated from the building with the help of the Isokorb.
The Schöck range of structural thermal break units allows connections to be made between concrete-to-concrete, concrete-to-steel and steel-to-steel. Product performance is totally verifiable and the range meets full compliance with the relevant UK building regulations, has NHBC approval and offers LABC Registration. There is also the security of independent BBA Certification.

Schöck retrofit solution for major office-to-residential conversion
Schöck retrofit solution for major office-to-residential conversion
Previously the London headquarters of the international turnkey projects contractor M.W Kellogg, the imposing Kellogg Tower at Sudbury Hill, in North West London, is being transformed into a contemporary residential scheme known as Atrium Point. The existing buildings are being sustainably refurbished, with solar panels, air source pumps and heat recovery units, all contributing to meet CO2 reductions in the redevelopment.
It is currently one of the largest office-to-residential schemes in the capital and will result in a mix of a 290 studios, one bedroom and two bedroom apartments.
Many of the new units will benefit from a cantilevered steel balcony, supported to the existing reinforced concrete slab and naturally, structural thermal performance is a key consideration. Market-leading structural thermal break suppliers Schöck are the go-to company for this type of specification with their innovative Isokorb solution for refurbishment applications.
The product has a 120mm insulation element thickness and is a load-bearing thermal break that allows the replacement, or addition, of balconies to an existing building by connecting cantilevered steel balconies to the reinforced concrete slab. It minimises thermal bridges at concrete-to-steel cantilever balcony connections and transfers negative moments and positive shear forces. This offers a number of different options for integrated, energy-efficient building renovation and guarantees enormous scope for design.
Refurbishment to Passivhaus standard
An additional feature is that the product has been fully certified as an “Energy saving component” by the Passivhaus Institute in Darmstadt, Germany, which highlights the importance of thermal performance, even for refurbishment projects of this type.
Schöck is a specialist in the provision of advanced solutions for thermal energy structural insulation, but is best known for its range of Isokorb structural thermal break units, which allows connections to be made between concrete-to-concrete, concrete-to-steel and steel-to-steel. All units meet full compliance with the relevant building regulations and provide LABC registration and the highest level of BBA Certification. The requirement described in the Building Regulations that the temperature factor used to indicate condensation risk (fRSI) must be greater than, or equal to, 0.75 for residential buildings is easily met by incorporating the Isokorb.
In addition, there is also compliance with the Government Standard Assessment Procedure, SAP 2012, concerning CO2 emissions from buildings and respectively heat losses through non-repeating thermal bridges. Here, the lambda values of the Schöck Isokorb enable energy loss in various connective situations to be reduced by as much as 84% to 91%.
