Schuco aluminium AWS60 double glazed windows are engineered to cope with the modern requirement of large opening vents, this makes windows produced form the profile ideal candidates for fire escapes and situations where you want large amounts of ventilation to a room. The AWS60 window can be manufactured with variable angle cleats making shaped windows and gable frames easy to manufacture. This means that strong thermally efficient window can be made for a modern looking project or home.
AWS60 window is thermally efficient
The window has a thermal break separating the aluminium from outside to the inside. The AWS60 window is thermally efficent exceeding the requirements of building control subject to the glazing used. For those people unsure how the “U” values work. The lower the “U” value the better the glazing thermal efficency. There are two types of “U” value “centre pane” this is literally the “U” value in the centre of the glass. Then there is “overall “U” value” which is a combination of the frame and the glazing. The calcualtion is much more complicated but basically the addition of the frame and the glazing taking consideration of the overlaps and perimiters allows the overall “U” value to be completed. Our computer produces this calcualation every time we enter a product. As the frame becomes larger the “U” value improves. This is because the glazing has a better “U” value than the frame so the larger the frame the relationship of glass and frame alters.
Schuco AWS60 outward opening
Schuco are leaders in glazed frames the AWS range includes several size frames to match any application. The AWS60 has a front to back measurement of 60mm. Its design is contemporary which looks and is very strong.
AWS60 gable frames
The AWS60 window is an ideal product for shaped and gable frames. Schuco have a variable corner cleat allowing the corners of the frame to be securely jointed no matter what angle. Home extensions are being designed with vaulted ceilings making the most of the height and light. An excellent way to make the most of the light is to put a glazed gable frame above the bifold doors. The building will need to support the roof it is suprising how many builders think the roof can be supported by the glazing frames make sure your roof is self supporting and in most cases has a supporting beam to ensure no transfer of weight is transfered to the bifold doors.
