Schöck North America Launches Website
Home page of the new Schöck North America website
Four application sections cover STBs for: concrete and steel balconies; concrete slab edges; steel canopies and beams; and concrete parapets and steel rooftop connections. Each section compares applications with and without STBs in terms of energy savings and prevention of condensation, mold and rust.
Corresponding product pages detail 12 STB types categorized by concrete-to-concrete, concrete-to-steel or steel-to-steel connection methods, and offer technical PDF downloads on features, specifications and installation.
Separate case study sections on concrete and steel applications contain in-depth articles from interviews with specifiers involved in completed projects that incorporate STBs in low- to high-rise residences, office complexes, museums, universities and public buildings from four to 30+ stories.
Sections devoted to the individual interests of architects, engineers, developers and contractors/installers are provided with resources including: technical design services, general brochures, application brochures, technical articles, technical manuals, installation instructions, research reports, specifications, approvals/certificates, CAD/BIM library, code requirements, "lunch & learn" sessions, FAQs and "green building" trends.
"The new site adds numerous images, videos, animations and PDFs geared to first-time users of STBs as well as experienced specifiers accessing resources to expedite a project," says Dacko.
