Innovations

Innovations: Keeping ahead of the rest

A key part of Schueco’s business philosophy centres on innovation.

Never satisfied with the status quo, our designers work with architects to maximise client satisfaction through tailored solutions that are ever more closely aligned with their particular needs.

As an example, in recent years, we have concentrated on:

  • Improving levels of insulation even further (we now have a range of window, door and façade systems that have Passive House certification), while reducing the face widths of mullions and transoms to provide maximum transparency
  • Enhancing the visual appeal of our sliding door systems by decreasing stile widths and concealing the outer frames in the walls
  • Widening the choice of threshold heights to include a totally flush version, while still ensuring their absolute weather-tightness
  • Investing in the latest door control technology to improve convenience in use and building security for customers of our clients. Our range of Door Control Systems is now uniquely comprehensive
  • Working towards the development of truly sustainable buildings through the increased use of natural materials that lead to greater energy efficiency
