Modern facade option

Schueco has introduced the UDC 80 unitised facade system, designed to suit modern construction methods for medium and high rise residential or commercial buildings.

UDC 80 combines enhanced energy efficiency with design versatility and weather resistant performance. The slim profile (80mm) gives an elegant external appearance with an attractive U-value of just 0.86W/m2K, the company said.

The system is designed to incorporate not just glazing but a range of materials including sheet metal panels, printed glass or natural stone. These can be integrated flush into the facade, or face-filled to create deep offsets if required.

UDC 80 is designed to arrive on site as prefabricated modules and is available with two options: either to include concealed ventilation (UDC 80 CV), or to implement structural glazing (UDC 80 SG).
