Schöck, the manufacturer of construction products, will present the Schöck Isolink connector type TA-S at the BAU trade fair in hall A1 booth No. 119; namely the company‘s latest product development for thermal insulation of ventilated curtain walls. The Schöck Isolink type TA-S comprises Combar glass fiber reinforcement with extremely low thermal conductivity in combination with a stainless-steel screw.
According to the manufacturer, the thermal insulation properties of the new façade anchor are about 200-times better than those of wall brackets made of aluminum and 15-times better than those of wall brackets made of stainless steel. This allows savings in insulation material of approx. 50 %. As a component certified to the „passive house standard“, the new system provides for a reliable thermal insulation and allows for a calculative thermal bridge-free construction. So, Schöck extends the product family of façade fasteners by a new field of application, besides core-insulated concrete façades. Visitors to the fair will be able to experience the various options in façade design using Isolink up-close by means of a tower.
