Originally launched in 2014, the AWS 70 SC outward-opening aluminium window from Schueco UK delivers Schueco’s renowned ‘build quality’ at an economical price, a formula that has led to it being widely specified for commercial and domestic projects right across the country.
Its versatility and excellent performance in use means that many specifiers now view the Schueco AWS 70 SC window as the ‘go-to’ solution for projects where high quality is paramount but budgets are tight. The Q Mark product certification that it was awarded in 2017 has further boosted its popularity.
The system is now widely specified for new and replacement windows in homes and apartments, light commercial buildings, local authority properties, schools, hospitals and clinics. Design and compatibility with Schueco ADS 70 doors adds to its visual and practical appeal.
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 window has opening limiters and with a PAS 24 rating, offers 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. 90o and variable-angle connections mean that the Schueco AWS 70 SC system can easily accommodate bay windows.
