C O M » » SCHUECO UK, HAS announced new developments to its unique, ultra-slimline FWS 35 PD panorama design façade system. Shown at BAU 2017, the enhanced system delivers even greater visual elegance and transparency, 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 obviates 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 22 mm to 50 mm thickness. The versatility of the system is further enhanced by the introduction of a new single glazed option which is ideal for high-end display windows and internal applications. Where ventilation is required, the new Schueco FWS 35 PD façade 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. Also seen at BAU for the first time, was the company’s new concept window, Schueco AWS 75 PD.SI, an ultra-slim turn-tilt window which can be integrated into the Schueco FWS 35 PD façade. This marks a continuing Schueco trend for developing a series of products with minimal sight-lines. The new concept window is expected to be available during 2018. Recognising the importance of solar shading for large glazed areas, the Schueco FWS 35 PD façade 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 façade’s very slim profiles. This extends the system’s design flexibility in line with other Schueco façade systems. Reflecting the growing importance of security, the new Schueco FWS 35 PD façade offers three levels of security – standard or resistance classes 2 and 3 of EN 1627, the latter incorporating P4A and P6B security glass.
