The Schöck Isokorb type KS14 thermal break outperforms certain ‘common solutions’ for concrete-to-steel connections by a considerable margin. This is verified through rigorous independent testing carried out by the Oxford Institute for Sustainable Development, at Oxford Brookes University .
Specifiers, contractors and developers therefore need to be wary and question bespoke solution performance claims. Often they will be found wanting and the lack of transparency in determining actual performance values may mean a product that is simply not fit for purpose. Due to building site ‘tolerances’ it is vital that thermal product solutions should, at the very least, exceed minimum standards.
