Forms a thermal break between balcony and internal floor, allowing full transfer of load from an external balcony into the main structure whilst providing a thermal break to reduce heat loss to the outside. The products are used primarily in reinforced concrete structures and are designed to form integrally with the floor construction.

Benefits:

  • Reduces thermal bridging in accordance with building regulations.
  • Provides continuity of reinforcement and reinforcement properties between building components.
  • Non-standard sizes or elements with special loading or design calculations are available.
  • Fire rating: REI 120.
  • All units provided with mineral wool insulation (polystyrene option available if required).
