Schüco, a global leader in the design and supply of aluminium building envelope systems solutions, showcased important innovations at the BAU show in Munich.

Schüco’s new FWS 35 PD Panorama Design façade features a unique reduced face-width of 35mm. The almost frameless transparency of this highly insulated system makes it ideal for use in high-end, low-level residential and commercial properties.

The FWS 35 PD can accommodate triple glazing up to 52mm thick, is Passive House-certified and achieves Uf values to 0.90 W/m2K. New prefabricated components reduce the number of interfaces while a patented fixing system for pressure plates facilitates fast fabrication and assembly.

Schüco’s FWS 60 CV façade incorporates a new generation of slimline ribbon windows with optimised noise reduction and thermal insulation characteristics. The vents look exactly the same as the load-bearing structure, with the opening units and fixed vents indistinguishable from the outside.

These new windows, which can have an Ucw value of 0.85 W/m2K, have basic depths of 65mm and 85mm and can be used for traditional and floor-to-ceiling fenestration and punched openings in existing buildings and new-builds.

Schüco’s new Parametric System is another innovation that allows geometrically freeform 3D façades to be created and calculated with the certainty of a series product. A continuous, closed digital process chain in all phases of design, planning and fabrication forms the basis for cost-effective and quality-assured manufacturing.

A high level of insulation gives Uf values up to 0.5 W/m2K; additional functions such as daylight control and solar energy generation may be specified as required.

Schüco systems for windows, doors and façades

Schüco collaborates with its worldwide network of partners, architects, specifiers and investors to create sustainable building envelopes that focus on people and their needs. Schüco’s systems meet the highest demands for design, comfort and security, while simultaneously reducing CO2 emissions through energy efficiency, thereby conserving natural resources.
