Level threshold to the outside
Barrier-free building shows foresight. All the barrier-free units in your home allow for the living space to be used independently – largely without any help. Schüco offers the right solutions for this. In addition to flat and zero-level threshold solutions, this also includes the Schüco AWS window system platform with innovative further developments.
For today. For tomorrow. For buildings with a bright future.
Schüco windows make it possible not only to easily realise the many advantages of barrier-free constructions, but also to fulfil the DIN standard relating to accessible buildings without difficulty. The DIN 18040-2 standard (Construction of accessible buildings) applies to barrier-free planning, execution and equipment of flats, buildings with flats and their outdoor areas, which are intended for home-related use. In other words, living spaces in which people should feel comfortable.
Barrier-free patio doors from Schüco are easy to open and close, and safe to pass through. Creating a barrier-free transition between the inside and outside includes having sufficient space to move in front of the door and stepless access. To ensure unrestricted wheelchair use, a clear opening dimension (clear width) of at least 900 mm is required; if this is not required, then the dimension is 800 mm. In addition, the clearance height (clear height) must be at least 2050 mm in accordance with DIN 18040-2. The barrier-free window doors easily fulfil these parameters with a width of 1300 mm and a maximum height of 2500 mm. Schüco window doors made from aluminium also boast a zero-level threshold without a tripping hazard, ensuring a seamless transition onto your patio or balcony.
Innovative ease of access
The Schüco AWS barrier-free window construction allows for a seamless transition from inside to outside. The window system has different opening types, is easy to use and has a zero-level threshold, thereby meeting all of the requirements in terms of comfort and design.
20 mm threshold
An effortless, flat solution
Integrating a particularly flat threshold into the Schüco window systems provides greater ease of use in comparison to conventional thresholds. The low construction height of 20 mm fulfils the requirements of barrier-free building. Additional benefits include the concealed fixing system and the kick plate.
Easy living with barrier-free products
Creating a building that is barrier-free makes the living space very comfortable and convenient. This benefits not only people with limited mobility, but also the elderly and families with children.
