Hall 9.0, stand E71
Schüco International KG, the building envelope specialist from Bielefeld, will be presenting its product portfolio for building automation at Light + Building in hall 9.0 at stand E71. This ranges from simple automation solutions for individual doors and windows, for example, right through to networked automation solutions for the entire building envelope – including connection to KNX, LON or Wago-based building management systems. The Schüco systems offer a variety of functions that make buildings more secure, more comfortable and better able to retain their value, while at the same time contributing towards saving energy. They also feature an attractive, well-balanced design and impress with their often complete and therefore concealed integration in windows, doors and façades.
The Schüco Door Control System is a door management system which covers the three areas of emergency exit control, access control and door communication. The individual modules, which have a uniform design and are flush-fitted in the door frame, can be combined to form a complete system to suit requirements. This versatility makes the system just as suitable for luxury homes as it is for commercial buildings – including burglar resistance, ease of access and requirements for emergency exits and escape routes. Schüco is currently the only provider to offer a door management system with this wide range of combination options and functions. And all of this with an award-winning design – the Schüco Door Control System has already won the iF product design award and the red dot design award.
Visitors to the Schüco exhibition stand will also gain a comprehensive insight into how operating costs can be saved and the value of a building can be retained in the long term with Schüco building automation. The same is true of modernising commercial buildings. In this sector, the company is presenting its wireless control system – an intelligent automation system without the need for any cables which allows direct wireless control of lighting and solar shading installations, as well as opening units, by means of momentary contact switches and maintained-contact switches. In the simplest case, the existing maintained-contact switches can be replaced by actuators and sensors. This technology is particularly advantageous for listed buildings.
The variety of operating concepts ensures that the Schüco systems are intuitive and easy to use. Automatically controlled window and door systems increase comfort, particularly when it comes to large-scale sliding systems. Visitors to the Schüco exhibition stand will also learn how quickly and quietly the Schüco ASS 77 PD (Panorama Design) sliding door can be operated using the profile-integrated, automatic drive and lock technology. With its LED lighting for windows and façades, the company will also be showing how building automation which is attractively integrated can create design features: Schüco LightSkin powered by Zumtobel is the smallest LED lighting solution that is fully integrated in the profile. It transforms every façade into a design object. The jury for the 2014 iF product design awards felt the same way, granting the product the renowned iF label in the buildings category.
