Schüco aluminium systems:
AWS and ADS 112.IC - energy efficiency with a sophisticated design
As the world's first passive house-certified aluminium window, the AWS 112.IC is a true expert in energy efficiency. It combines the conventional benefits of aluminium windows such as stability, a wide range of surface finish options, robustness and durability, with unique thermal insulation and a Uw value lower than 0.8 W/(m2K). When combined with the ADS 112.IC aluminium door system, this creates an optimum energy combination, which can be integrated harmoniously into passive house-certified building envelopes and can satisfy even the highest design requirements.
Schüco PVC-U systems:
Ventilation integrated into the window with heat recovery
Due to new standards and legal regulations, the ventilation of living spaces is becoming an increasingly important topic. The decentralised Schüco VentoTherm ventilation system, which is integrated in the window, meets all the requirements in full. In terms of draught exclusion, noise reduction and burglar resistance, the system also offers all the benefits of a closed window.
Schüco Jansen steel systems:
Janisol anti-finger-trap door - security in steel
The new Janisol anti-finger-trap door with thermally broken Janisol anti-finger-trap profile for rebated doors combines the highest level of security with a timeless design. It prevents crushing and shearing points in the area of the secondary closing edge in accordance with DIN 18650. Compatibility with the standard Janisol range of profiles, the surface-mounted aluminium clip profiles, the integrated door closers and the automatic side-hung door drives provides the highest level of flexibility with regard to project planning. The order and fabrication manuals are available immediately.
The energy revolution is reaching the streets
Solar Mobility Carport - Impressive in form and function
Decentralised energy management is no longer
just a vision of the future, it is already a reality.
Schüco Solar Mobility further increases
independence from conventional sources of energy.
One of the key components on the road
towards clean electromobility is now ready for large-scale
use. The Solar Mobility carport is impressive, not only
in form and function, but it also allows high solar
outputs in almost any installation location.
New look for Minol administrative building
When architect Hans Klein of Architekten Klein GmbH was approached with the plans for an extensive façade modernisation project, he suggested that his clients take a new direction and make a prestige project of the modernisation. By renovating the façade using the Schüco FW 50+.HI system, the office building saves a marked amount of energy. The new, modern architectural style enhances the building and highlights that façade renovation can set new standards both in terms of architecture and energy.
