Schock

Schöck provides a market-leading range of load-bearing thermal insulation elements known as the Isokorb. The range allows connections to be made between concrete-to-concrete, concrete-to-steel and steel-to-steel - and in addition provides BBA Certification and LABC Registration. There is also a solution which is Passive House certified. All units meet full compliance with the relevant UK building regulations. BRE IP1/06, a document cited in Building Regulations Approved Documents Part L1 and L2 and Section 6 in Scotland. This requires that the temperature factor used to indicate condensation risk - the (fRsi) value - for offices and retail premises is equal to or greater than 0.5; and to ensure higher standards for occupants in residential buildings, equal to or greater than 0.75. These requirements are comfortably met by incorporating the Schöck 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%.
