Schock, an international developer of innovative construction products for thermal insulation, impact sound insulation and reinforcement technology, recently announced the U.S. introduction of Isokorb, a load-bearing and thermal-insulating element for building exteriors.
The technology reduces heat transfer through the building envelope, and therefore provides a higher interior temperature. This innovative approach to thermal break technology saves energy consumption, prevents the formation of condensation and mold, and improves living comfort from warmer surface temperatures.
“We are delighted to officially make Isokorb available to U.S. architects, engineers and other members of the building construction community,” said Matt Capone, national sales manager for Schock USA. “This proven technology, which plays a vital role in creating energy efficient connections for reinforced concrete and steel, can now be easily accessed by the many U.S. design groups interested in sustainable concepts.”
According to Capone, buildings constructed using Schock Isokorb have more design options and operate with greater energy efficiency than traditional construction. Isokorb reduces a building’s carbon footprint and supports a more holistic, systems-based approach to energy consumption that contributes to LEED.
