Schüco budget-price low-rise façade system proves popular

Schüco’s decision to launch the TTC 50 low-rise aluminium façade system is proving popular with its fabricator-partners because while still offering undiminished Schüco quality and impressive 'U' values, its price allows them to compete even more effectively on projects where budgets are particularly tight.

This was certainly the case at Lliswerry High School, Newport, Gwent, where Schüco TTC50 was used for the first time in the UK by fabricators White Brothers & Speed to clad a single-storey classroom block. In fact, the system can easily accommodate buildings up to three storeys in height, which makes it ideal for a wide variety of local authority, healthcare and commercial projects.

The Schüco TTC 50 system offers a slimline 50 mm face-width and a typical frame 'U' value of 1.64 Wm2/K. Four main profiles with box depths of 48 mm, 83 mm, 103 mm and 123 mm give the system real versatility and fabrication is simple thanks to 90° straight-cut profiles that do away with the need to notch transoms; joint strength is assured by means of aluminium cleats.

Fabricators using the Schüco TTC 50 system can also benefit from improved

cashflow because with the same profile being employed for both mullions and transoms, stockholding levels can be significantly reduced.
