If You Can Install a Thermal Break Here, You Can Install it Anywhere!

from Matt Capone

Schӧck Isokorb® has made a (thermal) breakthrough in New York City:  Isokorb ® has been successfully installed in the first thermally broken balcony in the big Apple. Schӧck USA recently received NYC DOB approvals for the Isokorb® module and now a flag has been planted in Manhattan.

In early 2012, we had the first steel thermal break connection at Fulton Street Transit station. And while Isokorb® has been installed globally, with over 10 million thermal break units, over a span of more than 20 years, a concrete thermal break project in New York City is an accomplishment in which we are proud!
