Schöck performance values independently verified by the OISD

Schöck performance values independently verified by the OISD

Schöck demands extremely high product performance standards for its Isokorb thermal energy structural insulation products.

The company always ensures that all solutions exceed the necessary building regulations and that any performance claims are verifiable.

To guarantee the accuracy of its current performance values, Schöck submitted three of its main connectivity solutions for independent evaluation by the Oxford Institute for Sustainable Development (OISD), at Oxford Brookes University. One of the UK's largest research institutes dedicated to sustainable development research in the built and natural environments.

Three connectivity types were submitted for evaluation. Namely, concrete balcony connections (type K), steel balcony connections (type KS14) and steel beam connections (type KST).

All three were tested using different construction methods. The purpose of the investigation being to determine the resultant heat loss, minimum surface temperature and therefore temperature factor (fRSI) to comply with UK Building Regulations Part L.
