Schueco has launched a new Panorama Design façade system, combining slim face-widths with high thermal performance.
The FWS 35 PD Panorama Design aluminium façade features a slim face-width of just 35mm. The SI (super-insulated) version is certified by the Passive House Institute with a U-value of 0.79 W/m2K.
The system is designed for low-rise high-end residential and commercial projects.
A choice of two levels of insulation is offered – HI (highly insulated) or SI to enable the Schueco FWS 35 PD façade to offer flexibility according to specification needs.
Importantly, Schueco AWS windows, including those with TipTronic automated operation, can be integrated easily where necessary for ventilation.
The Schueco AWS 114 SG SI slimline outward-opening top-hung windows or parallel-opening windows can be fitted.
The Schueco FWS 35 PD façade system can accommodate double and triple flawed units from 22mm to 50mm thick with weights up to 250kg per transom.
A heavy duty version is also available which can carry up to 400kg.
The product can also achieve a burglar resistance class to EN 1627 RC2, which also meets the requirements of PAS 24: 2012.
