The continuing drive by Schueco to combine the slimmest possible face-widths with the highest possible thermal performance is demonstrated by the UK launch of the Schueco FWS 35 PD Panorama Design façade system.

This innovative new aluminium façade has a uniquely slim face-width of just 35 mm, yet the SI version is officially certified by the Passive House Institute with a Ucw value of 0.79 W/m2K.Visually very attractive, the system is ideally suited for low-rise, high-end residential and commercial projects.

A choice of two levels of insulation is offered – HI (highly insulated) or SI (super-insulated) – enabling the Schueco FWS 35 PD façade to offer real performance flexibility according to specification needs.

Importantly, Schueco AWS windows, including those with TipTronic automated operation, can be integrated easily where necessary, for ventilation. Alternatively, Schueco AWS 114 SG.SI slimline outward-opening top-hung windows or parallelopening windows can be fitted.

The Schueco FWS 35 PD façade system can accommodate double and triple glazed units from 22 mm to 50 mm thick with weights up to 250 kg per transom. Also available is a heavy duty version that can carry up to 400 kg.

To complete the product’s comprehensive performance characteristics, a burglar resistance class to EN 1627 RC2 can be achieved which also meets the requirements of PAS 24 : 2012.
