Schüco Australia has introduced a new concealed vent facade featuring a face-width of just 60mm. The new FWS 60 CV concealed vent facade is an aluminium system for floor-to-ceiling ribbon windows and fixed glazing where the 60mm face-width means that it is impossible to distinguish open and fixed fields from the outside. Even from the inside, the only indications of an opening unit are a flat slimline shadow gap and the presence of the window handle.
An industry first, Schüco Australia’s revolutionary innovation is achieved by merging the vent with the load-bearing structure. Additionally, this design also maximises light transmission through the facade. To ensure complete safety in use, an almost invisible all-glass Juliet balcony can be integrated into the facade in front of each opening vent.
Schüco Australia’s FWS 60 CV concealed vent facade is also ideal for punched openings, and counteracts the prevailing trend of meeting the demand for increased levels of thermal and sound insulation by using ever larger window profiles.
The 60mm face-width gives the facade a unique elegance and significantly enhances its kerb appeal while inbuilt engineering excellence means that the system delivers not only a high level of functionality, but also superior aesthetics.
A high-performance gasket system enables the Schüco FWS 60 CV to satisfy stringent wind-load and weather-tightness requirements. Additionally, a side-hung or turn/tilt opening vent option and a choice of two basic depths give the facade useful design flexibility.
