Schueco UK introduces enhanced version of slimline facade system

Schueco announces an enhanced version of its ultra-slimline panorama design facade system which delivers even greater visual elegance, the option of sun-shading and two levels of burglar resistance.

A major innovation is the introduction of an all-glass corner solution whose design avoids the need for intrusive profiles or pull-push rods by transferring the glass load directly to the adjacent mullions. The result is wider unobstructed views and greater transparency from inside and a sleek contemporary look outside.

With Passive House certification for the top Schueco FWS 35 PD.SI version, the range offers thermal insulation levels as low as 0.79 W/m²K and can accommodate double- and triple-glazed units from 22mm to 50mm thickness. The versatility of the system is further enhanced by the introduction of a new single glazed option which is ideal for internal applications.

Where ventilation is required, the new Schueco FWS 35 PD facade can incorporate Schueco AWS 114 opening window units; operated either manually or mechatronically with a concealed Schueco TIpTronic actuator, these are an attractive and practical method of ventilation and can be specified with either top-hung or parallel-opening types.

Recognising the importance of solar shading for large glazed areas, the Schueco FWS 35 PD facade offers two newly introduced methods of attachment by means of bolts or brackets. Discrete connection components are able to accommodate a wide variety of shading units despite the Schueco FWS 35 PD facade’s very slim profiles.

Reflecting the growing importance of security, the new Schueco FWS 35 PD facade offers three levels of security – standard or resistance classes two and three of EN 1627, the latter incorporating P4A and P6B security glass. Because the components that help to achieve this are fully concealed, the appearance of the facade is unaffected.
