Façade System AF UDC 80

Dynamic unitised façade with high degree of design freedom

The Schüco AF UDC 80 (Aluminium Façade Unitized Dynamic Construction) is part of the Schüco AF UDC 80 system platform for aluminium unitised façades. With its scalable and tested assemblies, the dynamic system 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.

Another benefit is the high degree of design freedom. The product portfolio of the system comprises various design options with a framed appearance. The continuous profile face width allows for maximum façade transparency.

Cover caps are available as design options; these enable a visually reduced sightline – with the same high load-bearing structure. This means that large-format unit dimensions with high unit weights are possible.

Opaque areas of the unit can be designed with a variety of different materials, such as metal sheets, printed glass and natural stone: it can be flush-fitted or integrated cantilevered in the façade unit to create deep offsets using system attachment components.

In combination with the concealed Schüco AB ZDS textile sun shading that is stable in windy conditions, cooling loads can be reduced in the building while achieving attractive façade architecture thanks to profile-integrated guide tracks.



Fabrication benefits

  • A high degree of prefabrication in the workshop ensures fabrication in any weather with the best machining quality and easy-to-calculate costs
  • Maximum use of identical parts enables efficient fabrication and minimises its complexity with few individual parts and short installation times – even with limited space on site
  • 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
  • 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
