Impressive Range of Innovations on Both Schueco Stands at Ecobuild

Schueco is showing examples of its aluminium and steel systems, some of which are new to the UK and all of which underline its status as a world-class company.

MILTON KEYNES, England, March 6, 2012


Leading building envelope and solar products specialist, Schueco UK, the lead sponsor of Ecobuild 2012, has major stands (N2940 and S310) in both halls. In addition to its solar energy products, Schueco is showing examples of its aluminium and steel systems, some of which are new to the UK and all of which underline its status as a world-class company.

Solar-enabled systems on show include two aluminium façade systems incorporating Schueco ProSol TF+ thin-film PV technology, together with a ProSol-enabled brise soleil. Schueco's unique ERC 50 Renovation Façade is being shown for the first time in the UK, as is the Janisol Arte insulated steel renovation window from Schueco Jansen. The latter recently won a Gold Design Award at France's leading building exhibition, Batimat 2011.

A heavily insulated door and façade that meet PassivHaus standards emphasise Schueco's commitment to energy efficiency, while Schueco ASS 77 PD.NI, the first in a new range of 'panoramic' motorised sliding doors, demonstrates the company's continuing quest for innovation. Able to accommodate very large openings (up to 3.5 metres high by 3.2 metres wide), these doors have minimal profile face widths of the central meeting stiles and outer frames that are completely concealed in the building structure on all four sides to give maximum light transparency.

The solar products on display include roof-mounted thermal collectors and PV modules from the company's Premium and Compact Line systems; an array of Schueco TF+ thin-film PV modules installed on Schueco's East/West flat-roof mounting system; current pump-stations and controllers together with a newly introduced controller and pump; roof anchors and under-construction; a range of inverters and a Sunalyzer Web PR data logger.

There is also a working e-bike illustrating the diverse ways in which solar power may be used.

Schueco - Green Technology for the Blue Planet

That means clean energy from solar products and windows. And the contribution that Schueco makes to the environment with pioneering building envelopes. To be more precise, with Energy3: Saving Energy - Generating Energy - Networking Energy. Window and façade systems not only save energy due to optimum thermal insulation, they also generate energy thanks to efficient solar solutions. This creates an excess of energy which can be used by means of intelligent networking. For building functions, as well as for everyday life. The result is a significant step towards energy self-sufficiency. Towards the sustainable conservation of natural resources. And for a secure future. With more than 5200 employees and 12,000 partner companies, Schueco is active in more than 75 countries worldwide and achieved turnover of 2.38 billion euros in 2010.
