CEI Magazine: Egcobox® thermal breaks

Shear force transmission for load-bearing exposed precast concrete façade!

The new August-Kühne-Haus is currently under construction at the historic headquarters of the logistics company Kühne + Nagel in Bremen. Thermally insulating Egcobox cantilever connectors were supplied for the precast sections of the load-bearing exposed concrete façade.

"Egcobox was used for the thermal separation of the cold façade from the warm floor. A reduction in thermal bridging was successfully achieved through the use of high-quality materials in the Egcobox. The A1-classified mineral wool insulating material thus provides for maximum safety in case of fire as well as a low thermal conductivity".

BBA approved Egcobox® thermal breaks, to REI 120, conform to the recently amended Building Regulations 7(2) for combustible products for England.

This issue celebrates all that is beautiful about concrete. Inspired innovations continue to expand its use, allowing for evermore creative projects to be constructed from the material. The next issue of Concrete Engineering International magazine will include features on: 3D Printing, Transport, High-Rise Construction and Modern Methods of Construction.
