Isokorb XT-Combar with BASF’s Insulation Material Neopor®
Due to its special material composition, the new Schöck Element Isokorb Combar XT minimizes thermal bridges on projecting building elements: While Isokorb insulating element consists of the highly efficient BASF insulating raw material Neopor®, the manufacturer has, for the first time, chosen Combar glass fibre bars for the tensile bars.
New Element from Schöck for Minimizing Thermal Bridges on Projecting Building Elements
At the BAU 2017 in Munich, the building products manufacturer Schöck Bauteile GmbH premiered its newly developed thermal insulation element Isokorb XT-Combar for freely projecting building elements. With a thermal conductivity of just 0.7 W/mK, the new model achieves the best thermal insulation values on the market, thus minimising the risk of thermal bridges.
This is due to its special material composition: while Isokorb insulating element consists of the highly efficient BASF insulating raw material Neopor®, the manufacturer has, for the first time, chosen Combar glass fibre bars for the tensile bars.
The thermal insulation improvement of up to 30 per cent – depending on the load-bearing capacity – offered by the new Isokorb allows balconies in passive and ultra-low-energy houses to project significantly further with an unchanged thermal outflow. This offers more freedom for architectural design and fewer insulating measures. The new thermal insulation element is also corrosion-resistant and significantly lighter than its predecessors.Schöck Isokorb XT-Combar has been certified by the Passive House Institute in Darmstadt as a passive house component and has been awarded technical approval by the German Institute for Building Technology (DIBt), type approval, and a fire protection class.
