Façade FWS 60

New system solution integrated in the profile for spandrel safety barriers with a high degree of design freedom and the best thermal insulation properties

Maximum flexibility

The system-optimised Schüco Façade FWS 50 / FWS 60 offers a high degree of flexibility and attractive design options for façades and skylight areas – including optimised fabrication and installation processes. A further benefit is that the façade guarantees the best thermal insulation values as a passive house-certified SI system.

Feature spandrel safety barriers

The new, transparent system solution integrated in the profile for spandrel safety barriers blends in seamlessly and elegantly into the external façade appearance. The required safety barrier loading for floor-to-ceiling opening units and low spandrel heights can be implemented with consistent profile face widths and an unbroken profile.

Additional system modules also facilitate the simple and secure integration of electrical components.

Award-winning system sustainability

With the expansion of the façade range to include the Schüco FWS 50.SI system, Schüco is once again meeting its ecological requirement for sustainable products. The system has been awarded the Silver “Cradle-to-Cradle Certified™” sustainability label by the independent C2CPII institute in cooperation with EPEA in Hamburg for its recycling properties and minimum toxin content.



  • Prefabricated system components: Increased fabrication convenience, minimal sources of error and increased installation speed
  • System components for wiring and cable feeds: Simple and secure integration of mechatronic components such as automatic opening units or sun shading systems up to 230 V AC
  • Continuous attachment to building structure for optimum foil guide: Clip-on function for simple profile installation, including colour coding for correct positioning of the foil for attachment to the building structure
