Vertical

Future cities will be vertical and individually designed. We develop dynamic façade solutions for different climates. Offering functional flexibility and aesthetic design.

Design freedom

Schüco Façade AF UDC 80

Watch the video to experience maximum design flexibility and usability.

  • Narrow profile face widths of just 80 mm
  • Narrow cover caps for visual reduction of the face width to just 65 mm
  • Structural glazing façade units to create a homogeneous all-glass look
  • Free horizontal arrangement of units and diagonal arrangement of sash bars enable high flexibility in the building envelope design
  • Use of natural stone or sheet metal, for example
  • Flush integration or cantilevered position in the unit
  • System attachment for opaque areas made from different materials in the unit
  • Maximum transparency thanks to projected top-hung or parallel-opening vents concealed in the load-bearing structure, with an overall face width of just 80 mm
  • The Schüco UDC 80 and Schüco UDC 80 CV unitised façades can be combined and look identical from the outside
  • The Schüco Façade UDC 80 system range allows project-specific adjustments and expansions to be made based on tested assemblies  

Integration of functions

  • Homogeneous integration of the sliding vent in the load-bearing structure of the unitised façade
  • Minimal face widths and maximum transparency without additional insert outer frame
  • French balcony integrated in the profile or individual balcony attachment depending on the project
  • Ventilation function without visible insert units
  • Concealed vents ensure maximum transparency with high functionality
  • Projected top-hung and parallel-opening vent that is fully integrated in the load-bearing structure
  • Wind-resistant textile sun shading ensures a reduction in cooling loads
  • Concealed installation in the Schüco UDC 80 façade with guide tracks integrated in the façade system
  • Can be positioned in the Schüco UDC 80 façade as a left-hand or right-hand roller
  • Integrated absorbing façade units ensure passive sound reduction: reduced spread of sound in urban spaces
  • Integrated, forward-mounted or micro-perforated absorbing components offer a variety of design options
  • Lower level of noise outside reduces transfer inside: less noise increases comfort and safeguards the health of users of the building

  • Inward or outward-opening insert units from the Schüco AWS series assume the ventilation functions
  • Insert units can be controlled manually or mechatronically
  • Schüco VentoLife air-purifying ventilation system provides a healthy indoor climate

Energy efficiency

Watch the video to experience maximum design flexibility and usability.

  • Fast unit fabrication with multi-chamber push-in isolators that can be used flexibly and a high level of prefabrication
  • Plug-in attachment to the load-bearing structure guarantees high isolator stability and accuracy of fit
  • Excellent Uf values as low as 0.86 W/m²K and pane thicknesses of up to 70 mm
  • Innovative attachment technology based on the proven Schüco AWS 114 system enables fast and simple installation and allows the fittings system to be adjusted
  • Profile-supported, flexible saddle gasket guarantees efficient and secure unit installation
  • High weathertightness up to 1650 Pa
  • Scalable assemblies and extensive use of identical parts ensures reduced complexity
  • Efficient thermal insulation combined with design freedom in the opaque area
  • Shielding from solar radiation helps to reduce cooling loads
  • Wind-resistant textile sun shading ensures a reduction in cooling loads
  • Concealed installation in the Schüco UDC 80 façade with guide tracks integrated in the façade system
  • Can be positioned in the Schüco UDC 80 façade as a left-hand or right-hand roller
