Insula ThermConX Thermal Breaks
Insula ThermConX thermal breaks can be incorporated into almost any structural connection, such as steel to steel, steel to concrete & concrete to concrete connections, and orientated both vertically and horizontally. This provides building designers and structural engineers with greater flexibility when designing the building structure and ensures that the requirement to avoid thermal bridging does not limit the design intent.
Insula ThermConX thermal breaks can be incorporated into construction situations that require a thermal break to withstand extreme loads.
A standard Insula ThermConX thermal break has an overall thickness 80mm comprising of steel plates sandwiching Insula IsoPoly insulating composite with a non-continuous fixing through the thermal break which improves the thermal performance of the connection and reduces the condensation risk with associated mould growth.
Insula IsoPoly is a composite material that has been designed, tested and developed for the specific use as a structural thermal break with properties of high compressive strength and a substantially lower thermal conductivity value than structural materials such as steel and concrete. Insula IsoPoly is manufactured at our purpose built facility to ensure quality control and product consistency.
BalconyLife include Insula ThermConX thermal breaks within the complete balcony packages and offer a range of standard thermal break sizes and if required our technical team can design bespoke thermal breaks.
