Schueco's AWS 70 SC window

The appeal of the Schueco AWS 70 SC window lies in the fact that it delivers Schueco ‘build quality’ at an economical cost, a performance/price combination that provides a real competitive advantage.

Specifiers and end users have found Schueco AWS 70 SC to be the perfect solution for new and replacement windows in houses and apartments as well as light commercial buildings, local authority properties, schools, hospitals and clinics.

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 1.5 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.

There is a choice of standard or heavy-duty stainless-steel friction hinges, together with multipoint locking for large vents. The window has opening limiters and its PAS 24 rating means that it 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 bay windows can be easily accommodated and Schueco AWS 70 SC is also fully compatible with Schueco ADS 70 doors.

All in all, Schueco’s AWS 70 SC window provides the perfect combination of qualities: it looks good, it performs impeccably and its price is right. Small wonder that it is being used so extensively and for such a wide variety of projects.
