Schueco Jansen Insulated Steel Façade System Gains European Technical Approval

According to Schueco Jansen, Europe’s leading steel systems specialist, its VISS SG structural glazing façade system, introduced into the UK last year, has just been given European Technical Approval (ETA-13/0015).

The rigorous ETA testing process means that architects and contractors can now be even more confident about the fitness for purpose of this structurally robust, highly insulated steel façade system. The contemporary sought-after ‘all-glass’ appearance of a VISS SG Façade is achieved through a special toggle and channel system which holds the glazed unit in place mechanically, without the need for the traditional mullion/transom pressure plate and cover cap profiles.The result is that, from the outside, only the narrow silicone joints between adjoining units are visible.

Its all-steel construction makes VISS SG the ideal system for façades that feature long spans and large glazed areas. Capable of supporting glass panes up to 2.5 m wide x 5.0 m high and weighing up to 800 kg, VISS SG delivers maximum transparency for the building envelope together with excellent 'U' values.

VISS SG  is available in either 50 mm and 60 mm face widths and can be combined with any of the VISS profile family including VISS Basic, which can be mounted on any suitable support structure to give a wide range of options.
