Do not compromise on the insulation for your home. Schüco windows guarantee you maximum energy efficiency. This is how you ensure markedly lower heating costs. You can make further savings with targeted ventilation. Here too, Schüco has the right solution.
For a family home with a surface area of 143.8 m2and a window area of 26.4 m2, which was constructed in about 1980 there would be, with Schüco Aluminium Window System 90.SI+, a saving of 51 kWh/(m2a) or 730 litres of heating oil per year. The consumption of 730 litres less oil reduces CO2 emissions by two tonnes per year.2This corresponds to a journey of about 10,000 km by car or a CO2volume of 1250 m3).
The Schüco Aluminium Window System 112.IC (Insulation Cover) aluminium window system is the first aluminium window system in the world which meets the stringent criteria of passive house certification. It offers a comfortable room climate through exceptional thermal insulation and an attractive design.
The Schüco Aluminium Window System 90.SI+ aluminium window Green (Super Insulation) is a highly thermally insulated window to passive house level with renewable raw materials. In conjunction with the impressive properties of aluminium, a wide range of design options and sustainable building can become a future-proof reality like never before.
Above everything else, feeling secure is about the certainty that you are well protected – from the wind and the weather, and also from burglars. Concealed yet highly effective, Schüco systems ensure security. Ultimately, increased burglar protection should not lead to compromising the appearance. In this way, Schüco aluminium windows with the internal “AvanTec SimplySmart” fitting provide a high level of basic protection that can be increased to resistance class 3 (RC3) with the help of additional locking points. Lockable handles in the consistent Schüco design and comfortable monitoring of closing with confirmation function for closing the windows when leaving the house complete the range.
Schüco AvanTec SimplySmart allows clean lines with its narrow, concealed fittings. Concealed hinges make the surfaces much easier to clean – no more dust traps, just smooth surfaces. The AvanTec fitting is also durable and has minimal maintenance requirements.
Lockable handles in the consistent Schüco design provide added security By using additional security locking points, the burglar resistance of the window can be increased up to security class 3 (RC3). Windows in this class withstand criminals that try to break open the locked component with two tools such as a screwdriver and a crow bar.
Even a normal window profile from Schüco makes it difficult for burglars. If that is not enough for you, integrated monitoring of closing offers a confirmation function through a magnetic switch for electronic closing checks when leaving the house. In this way the desired safety can be increased individually.
Increased comfort in the home thanks to building automation. A press of a button is sufficient to open and close windows. And a single glance to check that they are all closed. Schüco building technology provides a wide range of possible solutions for private homes. The Schüco system allows electronic opening and closing through monitoring of windows, natural and automatic ventilation, as well as electrically operated solar shading and anti-glare protection.
Benefits for users:
Close windows with no effort. As soon as the weather becomes unpleasant, the weather sensor closes all the windows automatically. Large, heavy sliding units can also be opened and closed at the touch of a button. The Schüco Wireless Control System assumes wireless control over mechatronic products, such as solar shading and lighting – can also be retrofitted for renovations.
An end to sticky rooms, and problems with tiredness and concentration due to poor indoor conditions. Now there are sensors which control the indoor environment using natural window ventilation, or which implement the most sensible ventilation type in terms of energy efficiency with the Schüco VentoTherm window ventilator. Schüco VentoTherm allows controlled air exchange without opening the window. Energy consumption, room climate and air quality are thereby kept at an optimum level. Schüco ventilation systems may be used both for new-build and renovation projects.
