Fully tried-and-tested with endless possibilities: Schüco FW 60+ – the façade system
The Schüco Façade FW 60+ systems allow façades and skylights of very varied design to be constructed efficiently and reliably. Their compatibility with many other Schüco systems make Schüco FW 60+ two of the best-selling façade systems in Europe.
From passive house-certified SI façades with maximum thermal insulation through to standard thermal insulation, the FW 60+ systems offer the right solution for every scenario and all climate regions
Geometrically complex skylight constructions can be easily constructed
A wide range of cover caps offer outstanding design options for a variety of façade styles
Bullet resistance, burglar resistance and blast resistance options
Can also be used as a fire-resistant façade (BF)
Electric cables are concealed within the façade system, but can be accessed for inspection

Schüco FW 60+, thermally insulated self-supporting aluminium façade system
As a mullion/transom construction for multi-storey façades with an internal and external face width of 60 mm.
The construction must be sealed from outside using aluminium pressure plates to suit the infill thicknesses.
The load-bearing structure of the façade construction consists of rectangular multi-chamber hollow profiles.
The load-bearing profiles are on the room side.
All profile edges are rounded.
The transom profiles are notched and overlap the mullions where they intersect, so that any moisture is reliably drained away.
On multi-storey façades, all horizontal joints must be constructed using the joint connectors and joint tolerance seals belonging to the system.
Appropriate system-based aluminium insert profiles and half profiles, as well as expansion joint seals, must be used for vertical expansion and assembly joints.
Glazing / insert units:
All glazing, even in the insert units, lies in the same plane. The glazing gaskets made from weather-resistant, black EPDM on the room side are of different depths in the mullions and transoms (6 mm offset).
Two individual gaskets made from weather-resistant, black EPDM, with a height of 5 mm, are positioned on the outside. Moulded gasket intersections made from EPDM must be used where mullions and transoms join.
In principle two individual gaskets and butyl tape must be used on faceted areas and for roof glazing.
Rebate base ventilation and vapour pressure equalisation are achieved at all four corners of each module field into the mullion rebate.
For field drainage and ventilation, appropriate openings must be made in the aluminium pressure plates, cover caps and gaskets.
