Energy-efficient aluminium window systems

In its new aluminium window system (AWS) generation of windows, Schüco has developed a system to meet all requirements. Functional benefits are combined with architectural and design features. For standardised interfaces, all fittings can be operated manually, mechatronically or centrally via a building management system.

The Schüco AWS 65 aluminium window system is an ideal standard system for a variety of window applications due to its broad range. There are up to five design lines that are available for creating attractive visual accents in both new builds and modernisation projects. With a wide range of profiles for narrow face widths, a high degree of transparency as well as complete compatibility with the Schüco ADS door range, sophisticated designs can be implemented effectively.

Schüco block systems create elegant window designs without visible window vents. This design option, where the outer frame completely covers the vent frame of the window, creates large transparent glazed areas due to its extremely narrow frame. With excellent sound insulation values and burglar resistance in accordance to RC3 (WK3) (DIN EN 1627) standards, the Schüco window is both reliable and versatile. The concealed Schüco AvanTec fittings and the Schüco TipTronic mechatronic drive can provide ease of operation on request. In addition, there is a wide range of stylish handles to give an ideal finish to every design line.
