Building envelope and renewable energy specialist, Schueco UK Limited, has just announced that a range of its latest façade systems has successfully completed rigorous testing to the latest CWCT standard.
The tests, which were carried out by Wintech Engineering Ltd, one of the UK's most respected, independent, UKAS accredited, testing laboratories, show that the Schueco systems also meet or exceed current BS EN standards for curtain walling.
The systems tested include two of Schueco's best-selling curtain wall products FW 50+ and FW 60+, both of which performed up to, or above, the required standard. In fact, these two systems have already demonstrated their excellent energy-saving credentials by being officially accredited by the PassivHaus Institut.
Additionaly the FW50+.SI (super insulation) version can deliver further heat loss savings of over 7% compared to the standard FW 50+ system with identical glazing. This could mean a considerable reduction in energy costs over the life of a building
The third Schueco system to be tested was the FW 50+SG. This widely specified, structural glazing façade performed equally well against other conventionally glazed FW+ systems, demonstrating that a specifier can be certain that any Schueco façade will be able to meet the latest performance standards with ease.
