Schueco - Building

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 won the approval of architects and contractors right across the country.

They have found the Schueco AWS 70 SC 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.

Fittings include a choice of standard or heavy-duty stainless-steel friction hinges, together with multipoint locking for large vents. The Schueco AWS 70 SC window has opening limiters and with a PAS 24 rating, can offer a high level of security.

There is a projecting sill option and profiles may be specified with different colours on the inside and outside faces. 90° and variable-angle connections mean Schueco AWS 70 SC can easily accommodate bay windows while offering the additional benefit of being fully compatible with Schueco ADS 70 doors.
