Visually perfect integration of window vent and load-bearing structure in the façade

The Schüco FWS 60 CV (Concealed Vent) façade system harmoniously combines slimline face widths with a high degree of functionality and excellent thermal insulation. With a face width of just 60 mm, opening units and fixed fields are indistinguishable from the outside. On the flush, closed inside, only a slender shadow gap and the window handle betray the presence of the window vents.

Large unit heights with floor-to-ceiling side-hung and turn/tilt vents ensure maximum façade transparency. Structurally advanced units as well as toplights and bottom lights provide increased design freedom.

A further benefit of the façade system is the integration of automatic ventilation control, e.g. for night-time cooling, which can be implemented with mechatronic vents – even as a bottom-hung vent without a window handle.

With the ribbon window, Schüco is once again fulfilling its obligation to create ecologically sustainable products. The system has been awarded the Bronze "Cradle-to-Cradle Certified™" sustainability label by the independent C2CPII institute in cooperation with EPEA in Hamburg for its recycling properties and minimum toxin content.
