Thermal separation with compact core bearings

Maintaining continuous thermal building envelopes by using compact core bearings in cantilever constructions.

Two new logistics centres are being built in Unna and Meinerzhagen. To protect the truck drivers, the vehicles and the people involved in loading and unloading from moisture during the exchange of goods, generously dimensioned canopies are being realised. The beams of these constructions are designed as cantilever connections at the building supports, thus penetrating the thermal building envelope. To avoid both energy losses due to cold bridges and condensation on the steel girders, compact core bearings are integrated into the end plate joints as structural elements. The product's inherent combination of high strength and favourable thermal conductivity coefficient ensures that the high specifications with regard to statics and building physics can be met.
