Concrete balconies and thermal breaks
On a residential application with a 2-story home using ICF walls and an InsulDeck 2nd floor. When it comes to thermally breaking the exterior concrete balcony, there is not much out there in details that can properly thermally break such a setup.
I have found this German made product called "Schock"
It is designed to carry the load and thermally break the concrete balcony. It runs for around $80 per linear foot. So on a 22' wide balcony, one is looking at around $1,760.
In a Zone 4 climate, would it make sense to go to the effort to thermally break a 2nd floor balcony?
Are there less expensive alternatives out there?
