Schueco FW aluminium facade systems

Supplier:
Schueco Australia

Tried-and-tested in locations all over the world, Schueco’s façade systems help to define Schueco as a global market-leader, making its name synonymous with first-class engineering and unrivalled product innovation.

Long acknowledged as experts in stick façades, Schueco’s recent emphasis has been on systems for the unitised market. A typical example is the Schueco USC 65, a fully tested, extremely flexible façade solution ideally suited to larger projects.

The system combines economy and functionality with pleasing aesthetics in the form of continuous, consistently narrow sight-lines of up to 65 mm. Weather-tightness is excellent thanks to a proven 3-chamber system and overlapping gasket design.

In the stick market, two façade systems in particular, Schueco FW 50+ (face-width 50 mm) and Schueco FW 60+ (face-width 60 mm) form the backbone of the range. Available with or without thermal insulation and backed by extensive independent testing in Europe, they have been successfully used in all types of climates and can be specified with complete confidence.

In response to the need for greater energy-efficiency and reduced CO2 emissions, insulated versions have recently been upgraded to meet European PassivHaus standards resulting in ‘U’ values as low as 0.73 W/m2K*. In addition, both façades can accommodate double- and triple-glazed units from 24 mm to 64 mm, supporting glass loads up to 700 kg.

The Schueco FW façade is also available in an SG (structurally glazed) format which can support glass weights up to 375 kg (Schueco FW 50+ SG) or up to 450 kg (Schueco FW 60+ SG), with maximum pane formats of up to 2600 mm x 4200 mm. The thicknesses of internal and external panes can range from 6 mm to 12 mm.

The glazing is given a flush appearance by using profiles that are visible only from the inside while a two-part stainless steel spacer for an air-tight or gas-tight edge seal increases the façades overall thermal performance.

Another recent introduction is the Schueco Aluminium Window System 114, a specially designed insert window for Schueco façades. Two opening types are available: projected top-hung and parallel-opening. This product is unique because it enables architects, for the very first time in Australia, to design in floor-to-ceiling top-hung or awning windows.

The versatility of the Schueco FW façade is further underlined by the introduction of an AOC (add-on construction) range. These façades, offered in 50 mm and 60 mm face-widths - with a 75 mm option for roof constructions - come with special fixings that allow them to be attached securely to steel and timber sub-structures. SG versions of both AOC 50 and 60 are available.

Finally, the recently introduced ERC 50 Renovation Façade demonstrates Schueco’s capacity for innovation. This unique ‘lift-on’ façade allows a commercial building to be given a complete external facelift, including the installation of thin-film PV modules if required, without any loss of rental income because occupants are not required to move out during the refurbishment.
