EBEA® Balcony Connector
Load-bearing thermal break

• Effective elimination of thermal bridges for concrete balcony structures


• Efficient installation
• Robust construction with fire protection up to REI120
• Wide range of models for different applications

EBEA® Balcony Connector is a load-bearing insulated connection element for concrete structures which minimizes
thermal bridges in cantilever balconies, or other applications such as walls and slabs.

Preventing thermal bridges and keeping structural integrity of cantilever balconies, walls and slabs at the same time
might be a challenge. EBEA® Balcony Connector minimizes heat losses and prevents visual or structural defects to
concrete structures. EBEA® system is very versatile in the wide range of models, you can find an optimal solution for
transferring all transverse forces, horizontal forces and moments in relation to the main slab.

About EBEA® Balcony Connector


1. Product properties
The EBEA® Balcony Connectors are primarily used to eliminate thermal bridges in connection between cantilever
balcony slabs and internal floor slabs. Balcony connector consists of thermal insulation, bending reinforcement,
shear plate with anchor bars and accessories (see Figure 1).

The EBEA® Balcony Connector is cast together with the floor and balcony slabs or can be prefabricated with the
precast balcony slab and attached to the cast-in-situ slab.

Information

1.1 Thermal insulation

The high demand for improving the energy efficiency of buildings requires making the right design decisions already
in the planning phase which will guarantee the reduction of thermal bridges and at the same time will allow for
practical implementation.

The aim is to prevent condensation and the subsequent mould formation caused by the cooling of the structure. By
using the EBEA® Balcony Connector, these goals can be met, while preserving the load transfer and the stability of
the structure.

The following illustrations show how EBEA® Balcony Connectors can improve reduction of heat transfer compared to
other conventional solutions.

Information

1.2 Structural behaviour

The EBEA® Balcony Connectors are designed to create a thermal break between two concrete elements and to
transfer the vertical shear forces, bending moments or tensile loads through the thermal break.

Tensile forces caused by bending are transferred by the horizontal reinforcement placed on the top part of the
balcony connector. Compression part of the bending moment is transferred by the buffers in the bottom of the
balcony connector. Compression buffer is made either from UHPC or from stainless steel (Figure 2; a)).

Shear loads are transferred either by vertical shear plates passing through thermal insulation or by inclined
reinforcement in diagonal form (Figure 2; b)).

Shear plate with anchor bars

The resistance values of the EBEA® Balcony Connector are determined by a design concept that refers to the
Eurocodes (EN 1992-1-1, 2004), (EN 1993-1-1, 2005) and (EN 1993-1-4,2006).

The load-bearing values specified in the resistance tables have been determined by assuming C25/30 concrete
strength. In the case of the C20/25 concrete strength, load bearing capacity values need to be amended with 0.8
reduction factor.

Version: PEIKKO GROUP 05/2020 7


Information

Stiffness of the connection

While modelling the EBEA® Balcony Connector in a FEM calculation, the following steps must be verified:
(1) The elements to be thermally separated should be separated along the entire line with edge joints.
(2) According to the planned element arrangement, the stiffness of the outermost joints must be adjusted.
(3) The loads of the outermost joints (VEd, MEd) can be obtained from the FEM calculation.

Stiffness [kNm/rad] [kN/m]


EBEA® k values* 100000
EBEA® spacer - -

* bending stiffness is available in resistance tables for each relevant model.

The load bearing capacity of the balcony connection is verified by the structural engineer of the project trough
comparing the resistance values of the selected model of the EBEA® Balcony Connector with the loads in the joint. It
is also recommended to verify the effect of the deflection of the balcony at SLS as follows.

Figure 3.  Bending deformation of balcony slab with EBEA® Balcony Connector.

The effective deflection w can be determined as follows:


w
= w1 + w2
M ⋅ lk
w1 =
k

Where:
w1 = deflection of the farthest point of balcony coming from EBEA® balcony connector rotation stiffness in SLS [mm]
w2 = deflection of the farthest point of balcony caused by the balcony slab itself in SLS
M = value of bending moment in the serviceability limit state (SLS) [kNm/m]
lk = length of cantilever [m]
k = bending stiffness of the connecting element according to the design table [kNm/rad]

Information

The stiffness factor k of the different models of balcony connectors are specified in the resistance table for each
model. The vibration sensitivity of a balcony depends not only on this geometric ratio, but also on the load and the
support conditions.

Recommendations presented in Table 1 serve as an initial assessment of the feasibility and do not replace an
assessment of the elements and their vibration behaviour by means of a dynamic calculation.

1.3 Limitations for application

1.3.1 Loading and environmental conditions

Bending reinforcement of EBEA® Balcony Connector is available in three material variations: stainless steel, stainless
+ black steel and galvanized steel. Use of material variation depends on environmental conditions of the structure.

Galvanizing offers economical protection for reinforcement against corrosion. The minimum coating thickness is
100um according to EN ISO 1461 which meets corrosion resistance class III (medium) (EN 9223:2012).

The following models are produced with a hot-dip galvanized bending reinforcement: EBEA®-300; EBEA® E-300;
EBEA®-400; EBEA®-1300; EBEA®-1400.

1.3.2 Positioning of the EBEA®

EBEA® Balcony Connectors can be installed to the balcony slab in two ways.

• Continuous installation – EBEA® Balcony Connectors are installed along the entire length of the balcony
• Discontinuous installation – EBEA® Balcony Connectors are installed at a certain length of the balcony with
gaps without bending reinforcements.

If the EBEA® balcony elements are installed in discontinuous layout, the intermediate areas must also be filled with
thermal insulation. EBEA® Spacers are designed for this purpose.

EBEA® Spacers are elements made from thermal insulation (see section 1.4.1) and without a bending reinforcement.
They are suitable for installation between two balcony connectors to create continuous thermal break between
balcony and interior floor slab. EBEA® Spacer has no loadbearing function and always must be used with the
appropriate EBEA® Balcony Connector. The height and thickness of the 1.0 m long EBEA® spacers can be selected in
line with the balcony connector elements. The spacers can be ordered by means of the EBEA® order form.

An example of discontinuous installation of EBEA® Balcony Connector elements is presented in Figure 4. The
installation drawings are created by the design engineer of the building.

Construction of expansion joints

The lateral force transmission in the expansion joints must be ensured by shear force dowels. The use of
transversely sliding dowel pins is recommended for joints at corners.

The type and number of shear force dowels must be designed according to the static calculation. The number of
the expansion joints must be formed taking into account the dimensions of the balcony slab and the longitudinal
deformation.

Spacing between two expansion joints when using EBEA® elements with shear plate:
In general l1 ≤ 12.0m
At a corner l2 ≤ 6.0m

Spacing between two expansion joints when using EBEA® elements with shear rebars
(only for EBEA®-600, 1100, 1200, 1300, 1400)
In general l1 ≤ 8.0m
At a corner l2 ≤ 4.0m

Information

Extra height of the insulation

Balcony connectors are produced with the standard height D of thermal insulation presented in resistance tables
for each model. The standard heights can be adjusted in 20 mm increments and heights are available from 140 mm
to 300 mm (except EBEA®-800; EBEA®-600; EBEA®-1000). The system allows the element height to be specified
individually. The extra height of thermal insulation is represented by +IO (for the top side) and by +IU (for the
bottom side). Using the +IO and +IU values, the element height and the concrete cover are modified to the special
installation situation. The maximum height of the thermal insulation with extra heights +IO and +IU is 440 mm with 5
mm step.

1.10 EBEA®-400

The EBEA®-400 Balcony Connectors are used for continuous slabs and serve to withstand moments (±MRd) and shear
forces in both directions (±VRd) between two concrete slabs. The shear plate system gives connection better stability
compared to the solution with diagonal reinforcement (shear rebars). This element with hot-dip galvanized rebars is a
cost-effective alternative to the EBEA®-200 Balcony Connector.

Note:
• Table values are based on 30 mm concrete cover at the top of the slab and 35 mm at the bottom.
• The increase of the thermal insulation height +IO and/or +IU has no effect to the load-bearing resistance.
Load-bearing resistance is selected based on the standard height D.
• The load transmission between the EBEA® Balcony Connector and the reinforced concrete component must
be ensured by supplementary reinforcement. (See Annex A – Supplementary reinforcement).
• According to the internal force flow, the EBEA®-1100 elements must be installed with the bottom rebar parts
of the stirrups in the direction of the balcony.

If EBEA®-1100 with bending reinforcement 2 × 10 is loaded with the bending moment and the vertical shear load at
once, the following equation should be used for verification of the connection:

* For situations, where is required another number of shear elements, please contact Peikko Technical Support for
custom design.

Note:
• Table values are based on 30 mm concrete cover at the top of the slab and 30 mm at the bottom.
• The increase of the thermal insulation height +IO and/or +IU has no effect to the load-bearing resistance.
Load-bearing resistance is selected based on the standard height D.
• The load transmission between the EBEA® Balcony Connector and the reinforced concrete component must
be ensured by supplementary reinforcement. (See Annex A – Supplementary reinforcement).

If the balcony connection is loaded with the bending moment and the vertical shear load at once, the following
equations should be used for verification of the connection:

1.22 EBEA®-Type G

The EBEA®-Type G Earthquake elements serve to withstand horizontal forces parallel to the joint in both directions
(±HRd) and are used for increased seismic requirements. The position is usually between standard EBEA® elements.
The product is available in two different reinforcement versions.

Information

1.22.3 Resistances

The horizontal transverse forces are transmitted by horizontal shear plates. The additional rebars serve as structural
reinforcement. The number of the load-bearing components is predefined.

Note:
• Table values are based on 45 mm minimum concrete coverage at the top of the slab and 45 mm at the
bottom. For the type with one shear plate the concrete coverage of horizontal shear plate increases with the
element height up to 95 mm.
• The load transmission between the EBEA® Balcony Connector and the reinforced concrete component must
be ensured by supplementary reinforcement. (See Annex A – Supplementary reinforcement)
• The EBEA®- Type G elements can only be used as additional elements. because they have no vertical
carrying capacity.

Information

2. Fire resistance
The EBEA® Balcony Connectors with stone wool and integrated silicate plates (see Figure 7) creates fire resistant
structure.

The fire test of EBEA® Balcony Connector was aimed to determine the fire resistance classes. In addition to the load-
bearing capacity, the integrity and insulation of the elements was also tested.

The EBEA® Balcony Connector has fire resistance REI120 if stone wool (SW) with silicate plates is used. EBEA®
Balcony Connector has fire resistance REI90 in case of use extruded polystyrene (XPS) with silicate plates and UHPC
buffers.

Short designations of fire resistance


R Load bearing; no loss of stability.
E Integrity; prevention of gas penetration on the non-flamed side.
I Thermal insulation; limitation of the transmission of fire or heat on the side facing away from the fire.

If EBEA® Balcony Connectors are installed discontinuously on REI balcony constructions, it is necessary to
insert EBEA® spacers with corresponding REI classes in the intermediate areas.

3. Acoustic insulation
The EBEA®-600 / EBEA®-1100 / EBEA®-1200 / EBEA®-1300 / EBEA®-1400 elements are acoustically optimized
versions compared to models with shear plates. They are used when higher sound insulation is required. The
following values are based on tests taken at the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts.

The tested elements have an 80 mm stone wool insulation and achieved the following sound insulation values:
EBEA® standard type Sound insulation value ∆Lw [dB]
EBEA®-1100 4×10-1 D180 L1000 SW80 13.0
EBEA®-1100 6×14-4 D180 L1000 SW80 9.7
EBEA®-600-2 D180 L1000 SW80 21.5
EBEA®-600-5 D180 L1000 SW80 15.3
EBEA®-100 6×14-6 D180 L1000 SW80 6.2

The measured values given are purely informative and are to be understood only as a first indication and must be
evaluated during the design of the envelope of the building. The sound insulation chosen can only be shown to
be effective if the overall construction is tested by the building physics engineer or if the sound level is measured
locally.

If you have any questions about the sound insulation value of other element types or insulation materials, please
contact Peikko Technical support.
