is a German brand that produces windows, doors and facades
, advanced solutions for the building envelope
that are made in harmony with the environment and thanks to the use of advanced technologies in the name of living comfort. Production takes place in full compliance with environmental regulations, using energy from renewable sources. Energy saving is not only the goal of production but also what Schüco products guarantee when installed in a building context: a good design of the building envelope significantly reduces energy consumption while reducing pollution. Thanks to the application of Schüco products it is possible to achieve a good thermal insulation of the building, apply automation systems, control and management of energy consumption, install energy-saving systems such as solar systems. All characterized by an attractive design, and applicable in residential, work or even public contexts, Schüco products range from sliding windows to doors, from roofs to curtain or structural facades
, from canopies to sunshades
, to photovoltaic panels, solar collectors, up to solutions for building automation
Schüco aluminium systems for the building envelope
Schüco uses aluminium for its systems because it is a lightweight material, infinitely recyclable, easy to work with and has excellent functional but also aesthetic performance: the aluminium profiles
have a minimalist design that allows for large window mirrors, but also guarantees ample compositional freedom, in shapes and colours, with infinite possibilities for customisation.
Contemporary designers prefer those solutions in which all structural details are hidden to leave room for light, transparency, and Schüco systems are perfect for this, with attention to the smallest details such as handles
, almost invisible, sturdy, but slender, elegant, with square profiles, installable with or without rosette. Other elements perfectly camouflaged in the slim Schüco profiles are the anti-theft systems
and magnetic sensors, or the hinges, important details that guarantee the durability of the windows and doors, but that designers prefer to hide in favour of a clean and linear design.
All Schüco products, facades, doors, verandas, sunshades, canopies, have the guarantee of quality attested by numerous patents and strict laboratory tests carried out on prototypes and samples, so that only elements that meet the parameters of European standards are put on the market. Before leaving the factory, each element receives the Schüco trademark, as proof that it has achieved and guarantees high levels of performance in terms of durability, strength and minimum maintenance requirements in the future.
The story of Schüco
Schüco was founded in Germany in 1951 and already in the 1960s had a workforce of 80 people and a substantial production of window systems
. In the 70s the production of insulated facades began, and then continued in the following years with a complete system of products for the building envelope
, always pursuing with great commitment and passion a continuous search for innovative and cutting-edge solutions to ensure environmental protection and energy efficiency of buildings. This corporate philosophy has been awarded several times internationally: in 2012 the DCS (Door Control System) automation system
and the ASS 77 PD range of panoramic slides
were awarded the iF product Design Award and the Red dot design award. In 2014, at the iF product Design Award, the Lightskin solution for LED façade lighting and the new Avantec SimplySmart
range of windows were awarded in their respective categories.
