Schueco UK has announced new developments to its unique, slimline FWS 35 PD panorama design facade system.
The enhanced system will feature the option of sun-shading and two levels of burglar resistance plus an all-glass corner solution, removing the need for intrusive profiles or pull-rods by transferring the glass load directly to the adjacent mullions.
Therefore, wider unobstructed views are achievable, with greater transparency from inside in addition to a more contemporary look outside.
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. Additionally, there is a new single glazed option that makes the system ideal for high-end display windows and internal applications.
The new Schueco FWS 35 PD facade can incorporate Schueco AWS 114 opening window units where ventilation is required. Opening window units can be operated 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.
The new enhanced system was shown at the BAU 2017 and in addition the company’s new Schueco AWS 75 PD.SI slim turn-tilt window was seen for the first time. The new concept window is expected to be available during 2018.
The Schueco FWS 35 PD facade now offers bolts or brackets as means of attachment and discrete connection components are able to accommodate a wide variety of shading units despite the Schueco FWS 35 PD facade’s very slim profiles.
Lastly, the facade offers three levels of security – standard or resistance classes 2 and 3 of EN 1627, the latter incorporating P4A and P6B security glass.
