Title: Modular Balcony Connection System
Author(s): Steve Orr
Publication: Concrete International
Appears on pages(s): 55-57
Keywords: slab connections, reinforcing bars, thermal conductivity, glass fiber-reinforced polymer bars
Abstract:The LENTON® THERMO Balcony System is designed to help eliminate the energy loss and potential condensation and mold growth associated with thermal bridging at slab-to-balcony and slab-to-wall connections. Because of the system’s modular design, balcony elements can be shifted as required to clear obstructions, and the connecting reinforcing bars can be installed after the installation of the balcony elements. Although the modular elements are very thin, they have extremely low thermal conductivities because they incorporate glass fiber-reinforced polymer bars as load-carrying components and vacuum-insulated panels as insulation components.
