Façade System AF UDC 80 CV

Highly transparent unitised façade with concealed opening units

The Schüco AF UDC 80 CV (Aluminium Façade Unitized Dynamic Construction Concealed Vent) façade system sets new standards for unitised façades with high functionality: concealed projected top-hung or parallel-opening windows with an overall face width of only 80 mm, concealed in the load-bearing structure, ensure maximum façade transparency.

As part of the Schüco AF UDC 80 system platform for aluminium unitised façades, the dynamic system with its scalable and tested assemblies offers architects, specifiers and fabricators an easy way to construct building projects with unitised constructions and a wide range of use and design options based on efficient planning and fabrication.

The flexibility with maximum system reliability facilitates optimum use of system components even for adapted, project-specific unitised façade constructions.

The product portfolio of the system with 80 mm profile face width also allows large-scale concealed units to be designed with high weights.

A further benefit for designing functional building envelopes is that, from the outside, the façade is identical to the Schüco AF UDC 80 unitised façade system while, from the inside, the only difference between the systems is the window handle.


Fabrication benefits

  • Innovative attachment technology ensures fast and simple installation and allows the fittings system to be adjusted
  • Screw-fixing the dimensionally stable multi-chamber isolator in the screw port of the load-bearing structure allows simple and secure installation with high maximum infill thicknesses
  • A high degree of prefabrication in the workshop, including installation and adjustment, ensures fabrication in any weather with the highest machining quality and easy-to-calculate costs
  • Flexible saddle gasket that is supported by profiles and easy to install: reliable joining of the unitised façades on the building
  • System brackets that can be adjusted along three axes for graduated unit weights: precise positioning of the unitised façades
