In recent years, homeowners have been expressing a preference for ever-larger areas of all-but-frameless glazing. To satisfy this demand, Schueco produced its very successful range of Panoramic sliding doors and façade systems, which is augmented this year by its first-ever Panoramic window.

As framing technology evolves, so does Schueco’s ability to produce new solutions more closely tailored to the needs of their customers. In pursuit of this aim, the company has been working for many years to slim down frame-widths without compromising the insulation properties which are essential for maximising energy performance. The result of this work can be seen most clearly in Schueco’s Panorama (PD) range of sliding door and façade systems, which has now expanded to include the company’s first-ever PD window system.

Designated the Schueco AWS 75 PD.SI this new system is now nationally available in the UK. Produced especially for the residential market, the Schueco AWS 75 PD.SI window features reduced internal and external face-widths as low as 55 mm. These enable it to deliver a whole new level of transparency, yet the window is still able to achieve an excellent ‘Uw’ value of 0.87 W/m2K. The system has been specially designed for the construction of ribbon windows and for use as an insert in a Schueco mullion/transom façade system such as the Schueco FWS 35 PD. Here, its ultra-slim face-width enables an overall size reduction of 25%.

Smooth internal surfaces give the window an attractive flush appearance and there is a stylish new ergonomic handle without rosettes that can be fitted with a lock if required. A wide range of profiles includes corner mullions, structural mullions, symmetrical and asymmetrical mullions and Schueco TipTronic toplights. The Schueco AWS 75 PD.SI system can accommodate vent sizes up to 2.5 m and glass weights up to 160 kg, with watertightness up to 600 Pa and burglar resistance up to RC2.

Schueco’s steadily growing PD range includes an updated ASS 77 PD sliding door. Able to accommodate very wide openings with panels up to 3.2 m wide and 3.5 m high, this selection of advanced doors delivers very large areas of clear glazing thanks to minimum-width central meeting stiles (30 mm) and a completely concealed outer frame. The recent updating includes both triple glazing and improved Uw values down to 0.85 W/m2K being delivered as standard. Additionally, usability has been enhanced by the introduction of an integrated full-height handle and an optimised locking concept which makes use of spring-loaded mushroom heads.

A particularly popular innovation has been the introduction of a 90o corner detail that emphasises the extreme transparency of the system, adds style to any property and floods the room in which it is installed with light. New bi-parting four-pane versions with two sliding leaves and two fixed or four sliding leaves were also added to the range.

Another notable new panoramic system, launched last year, was Schueco’s ASE 67 PD sliding door. This can be configured in a variety of opening combinations and is available in two options with different outer frames. The slimmer 57 mm option is ideal for renovation projects. A completely flat threshold eliminates the possibility of accidents while still allowing the door to deliver watertightness to 300 Pa and wind resistance to Class C3.

Finally, the ultra-slimline Schueco FWS 35 PD façade system has proved to be a welcome addition to the range. This offers a glass-to-glass 90o corner option and can be specified with either .HI or .SI level insulation. The latter is officially certified as delivering a Ucw value of 0.79 W/m2K, meaning that it meets Passive House standards.
