Schüco AWS 90.SI+ benefits in detail
Cut costs with aluminium windows
Aluminium windows are very practical because they are weatherproof, robust and low-maintenance. This durability means that repairs are only necessary in certain exceptional cases, which cuts costs in the long run.
With the Schüco "AvanTec SimplySmart Open Secure" system, aluminium windows from the manufacturer Schüco provide next level break-in protection, even when tilted open. To further increase burglary protection, Schüco aluminium windows can then also be reinforced with a pane of laminated safety glass (LSG), meaning you can air rooms at night without hesitation and sleep with peace of mind. Opening 175mm when tilted ajar, Schüco aluminium windows ensure good air circulation while still meeting a burglar resistance class of RC2 when tilted. When closed, this even increases to class RC 3. In addition, the Schüco 90.SI+ aluminium profile is extremely sturdy which further ensures burglars have great difficulty breaking in.
Due to their special construction, modern window profiles like Schüco AWS 90.SI+ steer clear of potential issues related to aluminium’s high thermal conductivity. New aluminium windows are manufactured, for example, to feature several layers and a frame containing a thermal break along with an extended insulation zone with foam-filled thermal bars.
Due to this make-up, the Schüco AWS 90.SI+ aluminium window achieves an excellently low thermal insulation Uf-value, meaning very little heat is lost through the profile, saving on energy and costs. Measured in W/(m2K), U-values roughly define how many degrees of heat are lost per hour per square metre.
