Isokorb is an off-the-shelf solution to thermal bridging in the building envelope. The product is a load-bearing and thermal-insulating element for connecting cantilevers, such as balconies and canopies which penetrate a building’s exterior, offers the following advantages: • Reduced risk of damages from condensation and mold, • Energy savings and less operating costs from space heating, • Contribution towards sustainable building practices and LEED® accreditation, • Improvement in living comfort from warmer surface temperatures Forming a thermal break in the building envelope with Isokorb also ensures full structural integrity. Specifically, the product 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 increases comfort, e g. near the balcony.
