Schuco’s New Low-Rise Facade System Proves Popular At High School

Quality and reliability at an extremely competitive price persuaded Newport City Council to  specify Schüco’s new TTC 50 low-rise aluminium façade system for a refurbishment project  at Lliswerry High School in Gwent.

It is the first application of the TTC 50 system in the UK  and was installed by Schüco’s fabricator, White Brothers & Speed.

The contract, which also included the removal of asbestos cladding and the  replacement of fascias, involved replacing the windows/curtain walling in the school’s dining  room.

Rob Mills, Newport’s Education Maintenance Officer, comments: ‘I have used Schüco  systems on other jobs and I’ve always been impressed by their quality. The introduction of  the TTC 50 system means that even when budgets are tight, Schüco is easily affordable. I  also like the high-level openers, which are on a camstay: they provide good ventilation  without compromising security.’

The Schüco TTC 50 system offers a slimline 50 mm face-width and a typical frame 'U'  value of 1.64 Wm2/K. It is able to accommodate buildings up to three storeys in height, which  makes it  deal for a wide variety of local authority, healthcare and commercial projects.
