Schueco UK Ltd, the UK’s market leader in sustainable building envelopes, reports that its AWS 70 SC outward-opening window system is proving extremely popular for projects in both domestic and commercial markets.

Launched just two years ago, the AWS 70 SC window delivers Schueco ‘build quality’ at an economical price, a performance/price combination that has led to it being widely specified for use in both domestic and commercial projects.Fabricators have found the system to be the perfect solution for new and replacement windows in houses and apartments, light commercial buildings, local authority properties, schools, hospitals and clinics.

With a depth of 70 mm, slim sightlines from 63.5 mm (outer frame/vent) and a choice of five vent profiles offering optimum cost/size/weight options, Schueco AWS 70 SC is ideal for punched openings, ribbon windows and curtain walling.

The system can accommodate double- or triple-glazed units and achieves a typical ‘U’ value of 1.6 W/m2K with 1.0 W/m2K glazing units, which makes it compliant with Document L. In addition, a WER up to ‘A’ is an option.

There is a choice of standard or heavy-duty stainless-steel friction hinges, together with multipoint locking for large vents. The window has opening limiters and its PAS 24 rating means that it offers a high level of security.

Importantly, the versatility of the Schueco AWS 70 SC in use is matched by the ease with which it can be fabricated. Using only the minimum number of profiles, it is possible to produce a wide variety of sightlines, sizes and weights from slim-line to heavy-duty.

Profiles can be pre-rolled or customer-rolled and Schueco’s tried-and-tested T-cleat and corner technology ensures strong joints that will last. Corner joints, which may be crimped or nailed, further benefit from a special metal adhesive.

There is a projecting sill option and profiles may be specified with different colours on the inside and outside faces. 90o and variable-angle connections mean bay windows can be easily accommodated and the system is also fully compatible with Schueco ADS 70 doors.  

Hinges precision-fix to profiles eliminating the need for packers, while ISR stainless-steel fabrication screws combined with profile location points in all hardware components, result in increased throughput and pin-point accuracy every time.
