The existence of travelling heteroclinic waves for the sine-Gordon lattice is proved for a linear interaction of neighbouring atoms. The asymptotic states are chosen such that the action functional is finite. The proof relies on a suitable concentration-compactness argument, which can be shown to hold even though the associated functional has no sub-additive structure.
