Isotec Concrete-to-Concrete Connectors
Isotec is a high performance thermal break system for concrete-to-concrete applications. It comprises 100% stainless steel reinforcement which offers maximum corrosion resistance and low thermal conductivity. Each unit is manufactured as a non-deformable cage offering high rigidity and dimensional stability.

Tensile and shear reinforcement consist of 1.4301 stainless steel with the characteristics of BSt500S. Tensile bars are continuous with no structural welding or point of weakness. Compression studs are manufactured from 12mm diameter, high resistance 1.4301 stainless steel bars with hot-forged heads.
In addition to thermal and durability benefits, stainless steel reinforcement reduces concrete cover requirements and can therefore provide additional design efficiencies over carbon steel systems.
Fire-resistant Rockwool® mineral wool insulation is protected by a plastic U-shaped profile top and bottom. A label is affixed to the top identifying the system type and direction of placement.
Isotec has been thoroughly independently assessed by the French CSTB and holds Avis Technique number 20/11-232. An English translation of this technical approval document is available on request.
- Inherently fire-resistant mineral wool insulation
- Compression studs reduce rebar congestion and simplify installation
- Continuous stainless steel reinforcement maximises strength, thermal efficiency and corrosion protection
- Supplied as a complete unit providing rigidity and dimensional stability
- Extensive product line to suit a wide range of applications
- Independently assessed by CSTB
Isotec is particularly suitable for highly energy-efficient structures, heavily congested or stepped floor slabs where compression bars would be difficult to accommodate, applications where maximum corrosion protection is required and when an integral fire resistance is preferred to the installation of a separate fire protection barrier.
When forming a cross brace using tie bars, the new Ancon Cross Coupler offers a streamlined alternative to an anchor disc.
