This month, Schöck celebrates the 40th anniversary of Isokorb® structural thermal breaks. Eberhard Schöck, the company’s founder, revolutionized the construction industry in 1983 with his invention for minimizing thermal bridges on projecting components, such as balconies, canopies, and parapets.
The load-bearing thermal insulation element broke ground regarding building physics, economy, and design. “The invention of Schöck Isokorb® structural thermal breaks was one of the most important milestones in the company’s history. It is as innovative today as it was then and is an example of the standards that we set for the development of our entire product range: forward-looking construction, better environmental compatibility, more safety, simple handling, and the resulting cost-effectiveness,” says Mike Bucher, CEO of Schöck AG.
