Barrier-free window and patio doors
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 a completely level threshold for a trip-free transition, there are also comfort components to make opening a window effortless.
Patio door with level threshold
A patio door with level threshold offers maximum comfort for people of all ages. But there are a number of components at work in the technology required for a non-existent threshold. The level threshold from Schüco is completely flush with the floor and thus allows trip-free access. In this way, the threshold achieves the highest class 6 in accordance with ift guideline BA-01/1 for determining and classifying the rollover capacity of thresholds. The substructure profile is available in two different design heights, one at 80 mm for use in newbuilds and one at 50 mm for renovation projects.
If it rains outside, two continuous sealing levels ensure optimum weathertightness for the system. The barrier-free patio door with level threshold thus achieves class 9A watertightness (DIN EN 12208). The threshold can be combined with commercially available drainage systems and offers an integrated non-return valve for optimum water drainage. Furthermore, a delayed hydraulic lowering process guarantees effortless closing for everyone.
Windows are extremely easy to operate
Everyone should be able to operate a window. It is therefore especially important to design the opening and closing process to be as easy as possible. Barrier-free comfort components, such as the comfort fittings, the cord ejectors and the spring-loaded unit, can be installed in windows with 70, 75 and 90 mm basic depths and guarantee barrier-free operating forces in accordance with DIN 18040-2.

Barrier-free, versatile use
The AWS barrier-free window system offers a high degree of flexibility and is extremely versatile. Whether it's handle height, ease of operation or a level threshold, windows and window doors can be designed to be barrier-free throughout the project. It is also possible to choose between side-hung windows, turn/tilt windows or even floor-to-ceiling units.
