Enhanced visual elegance and wider unobstructed views.

Schueco façade systems are always being examined by Schueco R & D specialists to see how their performance may be still further enhanced. The new Schueco FWS 35 PD façade is a typical example of this continuing quest for excellence.

Schueco UK has introduced new developments to its unique, ultra-slimline FWS 35 PD panorama design façade system. The enhanced system delivers even greater visual elegance with larger all-glass areas, the option of sun-shading and three levels of burglar resistance.

A major innovation is the introduction of an all-glass corner solution. Here, by transferring the glass load directly to the adjacent mullions, the design avoids the need for intrusive profiles or pull-push rods.

The result is wider unobstructed views and greater transparency from inside and a sleeker, more contemporary look from 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 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. They 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 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.

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. Because the components that help to achieve this are fully concealed, the appearance of the façade is unaffected.
