SCHÜCO FWS 50 / 60

Facade Systems
Aluminum Stick Curtain Wall

New system solution integrated in the profile for spandrel safety barriers with a high degree of design freedom and the best thermal insulation properties.

The Schüco Facade Systems FWS 50 / FWS 60 set a new standard for fabrication and energy efficiency. The focus of the new development of the tried-and- tested systems was particularly on the optimization of fabrication in the workshop and on the construction site. Newly prepared system components ensure much faster and more efficient fabrication and installation processes.

The Schüco Facade Systems FWS 50 / FWS 60 provide architects with a diverse range of design options – including the passive house certified SI (Super Insulation) version – in the popular face widths. Thanks to the new range of glazing supports, very heavy panels are even easier to fabricate and will retain the same high level of load transfer.

The cable guidance systems guarantee the metal fabricator the safe integration of electrical components in the stick built facade. New system components stream- line the fabrication processes on the construction site: for example, the innovative building attachment system that ensures reliable fabrication through the elimination of interfaces.

The Schüco Facade Systems FWS 50 / FWS 60 offer a high degree of flexibility and attractive design options for facades and skylight areas – including optimized fabrication and installation processes. A further benefit is that the facade guarantees the best thermal insulation values as a passive house certified SI system.
