News in Brief – April 2011
Schöck has been awarded a British Board of Agrément (BBA) certificate for its type KST thermal break element. The award was presented at the recent Ecobuild event and was for the product’s steel-to-steel connectivity and related modular applications. Schöck said its Isokorb range is now unique on two counts; in addition to the BBA certification, it is the only thermal break range to allow connectivity between steel-to-steel, steel-to-concrete and concrete-to-concrete.
