Al-Farooq Corporation, a Miami-based engineering consulting firm, is helping Schüco USA enter the South Florida market with the release of an outward opening terrace door, the Schüco AWS 75.SI+.

The global building envelope specialist has contracted the South Florida engineering firm to launch the product. Al-Farooq Corporation has tested and approved the product to assure it meets the rigorous standards and regulations for the hurricane market.

Al-Farooq Corporation Helps Schüco Break into the South Florida MarketIdeal for South Florida’s rainy and windy seasonal climate, the terrace doors were designed for high-level water tightness.

The design consists of easy-access threshold options, which meets ADA half-inch threshold height limitations while also maintaining 15 PSF of water resistance test performance, far exceeding minimum requirements.

“It has been great to work with Schüco,” says Senior Engineer, Jalal Farooq. "Their team is knowledgeable, responsive, and their products are recognized around the world. We are pleased that they have chosen Al-Farooq Corporation to guide them to success in this hurricane market.”

Schüco AWS 75.SI+ is available in a single vent and double vent option. An added Group V vent profile increases the maximum vent size to 46 1/2 inches by 97 5/16 inches with a maximum vent weight of up to 286 pounds and a 90-degree opening. The unique profile design also enables dual color options on the interior and exterior.

In addition to providing a high performance thermally broken terrace door, the system allows insulated glass units with a total of 1 11/32 inch IGU thickness using 0.09 inch SentryGlas interlayer, meeting today’s rigorous energy saving demands. By burying the threshold 13/16” into the floor, an ADA compliant, smooth and easy exterior access is provided.

Al-Farooq Corporation is currently testing several other products for Schüco that should be released in South Florida later this year – just in time for hurricane season.
