Schöck are the UK suppliers of:
Schöck Isokorb® is the heat-insulating load-bearing thermal break for cantilever balconies. The 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 and even offers an effective alternative to wrapped parapets.
Schöck Tronsole® for impact sound insulation Staircase noise is detrimental to the quality of living conditions and can reduce the value of a building. For high construction quality it is recommended to include top-quality impact sound insulation in sustainability planning. Schöck Tronsole® is an efficient solution. The perfectly matching system of impact soundproofing elements combines dependable sound insulation with simple installation. The Schöck Tronsole® variants are perfectly matched to each other and ensure efficient impact sound insulation that encompasses all structural element subsections on both straight and winding staircases.
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 an 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 thicknesses: 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 an 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 offers a totally comprehensive information service which includes: software, planning, in-house training, seminars and comprehensive technical specification details.

New Schöck impact sound insulation system for stairs
Since the 1960s Schöck has been developing product solutions that make a substantial contribution to building physics. Although best known in the UK for its Isokorb structural thermal break range (thermal insulation), in Europe, insulating stairs and landings against impact sound (acoustic insulation) has been a high priority for Schöck as well. This is largely due to the historical differences in dwelling types. In the UK only 14% of the population have traditionally lived in apartments, one of the lowest Euro percentages. Whereas the average for apartment living across the Euro area is 48% and in many cases higher. However, things are changing in the UK with apartment living dramatically on the rise.
As a result, Schöck has developed an integrated impact sound insulation solution for structural subsections on straight and winding staircases Known as Tronsole, it is a system that combines dependable sound insulation with straightforward installation and provides optimum soundproofing in apartment blocks and multi-use buildings. With conventionsal solutions, such as an unsecured individual elastomer support under the stairs, displacement can result in a broken concrete edge due to incorrect support. This may result in unwanted material between the staircase and floor slab, or landing, which can reduce acoustic insulation performance by around 10 dB. The Schöck Tronsole system consists of seven main product types that can be mixed and matched to form a fully integrated impact soundproof system either on-site, or in the prefabricating plant. And it envelopes the entire staircase, totally minimising the risk of acoustic bridges. Central to the Tronsole system performance is Elodur, an elastomer support formulated to ensure optimum acoustic insulation and low deflection. The new system is suitable for emergency exits and complies with the requirements for fire resistance class R90 (subject to appropriate on-site additional reinforcement of the landing).
For comprehensive information about the Tronsole system contact Schöck on 01865 290 890; or visit the website at www.schoeck.co.uk The full Product Brochure is available. Also, online installation videos are available that demonstrate the individual steps for installing elements for both straight and winding staircases and landings.
Schöck meets both thermal and acoustic insulation challenges
Roomers Hotels in Germany are individualistic in their architecture and high-design interior styling. And Roomers, in the spa town of Baden-Baden, is no exception. It offers 130 spacious rooms and suites, complemented by a spa area, a rooftop bar with infinity pool and spacious ground floor lobby. The interior design is contemporary and was selected by the German Design Council as its Interior Architecture Award winner for 2018. The hotel is part of an L- shaped reinforced concrete frame building, which also contains a block of fourteen apartments and a medical centre. It is brick faced, finished with a white plaster and has an extremely high building envelope insulation performance.
Preventing thermal bridging and impact sound
Important insulation considerations were the prevention of both thermal bridging and impact sound. Thermal bridging can occur at various connectivity points and in addition to increased seasonal energy usage, low internal surface temperatures below the dewpoint in the area of the thermal bridge can cause condensation. This may result in structural integrity problems with materials such as insulation products or plasterboard. There is also the risk of mould growth, which has potentially serious implications in the form of asthma and allergies. The second insulation requirement involved acoustic comfort for guests, where the prevention of impact sound on the stairways was critical. Although these are unrelated insulation challenges requiring distinctly different solutions, Schöck was able to bring its expertise to both.
Minimising the risk of thermal bridging
There were two areas where thermal bridging might pose a problem. One was the cantilever steel roof of the hotel, where girders connect to the reinforced concrete slab. The other was where the projecting reinforced concrete balconies connect to the concrete frame. Two different Schöck Isokorb load-bearing elements were incorporated to resolve any possible problems. The Isokorb for concrete-to-steel was used for the roof connections, a product designed to solve thermal and structural issues involving steel canopy roofs, steel balconies and façade substructures. For the reinforced concrete balconies, the Isokorb for concrete-to-concrete was incorporated. This is a thermal break for free cantilevered balcony construction and transfers both negative moments and positive shear forces.
Efficient impact sound insulation
A medical centre and an apartment block are part of the same complex as the hotel, with stairs and landings adjacent in that part of the hotel. So it was crucial to negate any possible impact sound travelling into the hotel guest rooms. Although best known for its Isokorb thermal break range, Schöck has been developing innovative solutions for the impact sound insulation of stairs and landings for over 30 years. Known as Tronsole, this fully integrated system fits both straight and winding staircases and ensures efficient acoustic sound insulation across all structural subsections. The Tronsole system separates the stairs completely from the landing, its elastomer support achieving a performance level far in advance of the requirements currently demanded here in the UK by the relevant sections of the Building Regulations Part E.
Totally verifiable thermal performance
In the UK all Schöck Isokorb thermal break products meet full compliance with the relevant UK building regulations, have NHBC approval and offer LABC Registration. There is also the security of independent BBA Certification. The temperature factor (fRsi value) used to indicate condensation risk, that must be equal to or greater than 0.75 in residential and public buildings, is easily met by incorporating the Isokorb.
